Birthday box for Mom:
I used the awl to stitch the chain to the cardboard. Since the chain and the jewelry piece probably won't be crushed, it prevents the next worst thing, scratches.
|Useless mock-up for giggles|
|I know I didn't have a picture of the backside of the drafting |
board; here it is. 1.6" clearance for masking tape.
|The original pattern. Looks like humidity affected it.|
|One of my aprons, still in use.|
|Proprietary bike maintenance apron for my brother. Same fabric as my apron, just less abused.|
|First item I made when I got my sewing machine; a cloth toolbox if you will.|
|Function. The sewing awl is good for making these.|
|This is the wallet I use. I hacked it together two years ago, and it's so bad that it never fails.|
