Bicycle Pillow + Handmade Leather tag

Bicycle Pillow + Handmade Leather tag

When I was my girl’s age, I learned how to ride two wheel bicycle by myself; many times of falling was the key.

My friend let me ride her dad’s big bicycle that’s taller than me. I learned how to get on the bicycle but didn’t learn how to get down!! After enjoying that thrilling moment; I could ride a bicycle!!, I didn’t know how to get down from that big vehicle. I drove it to the grass area and fell with a crash.

Not only because of that childhood memory, I have always enjoyed drawing bicycles.

My very first sewing illustration Bicycle Hoop (2014) was featured in Somerset Sew magazine last year.

Then I have kept thinking of recreating my bicycle love on the fabric and it took almost three years.

Hubby said my new bicycle is elegant and I agree with his decent taste. 😉

 

My Bicycle pillow pattern is available at my patternshop:  Sewingillustration.com.

 

First I sew outline using 50weight purple thread and then I outlined again using 12weight cream thread.

I love the result and I will definitely use  this method over and over again.

Thank you Aurifil!

*When I used 12 weight thread, I change needle no.90 and set the stitch length to 2.5-3.0 depends on  the curves.

And I used Quilter Dream Cotton batting. I had a chance to experience Quilters Dream at QuiltCon last year and they were in my wish list ever since.

 

Oh how I love this handmade leather tag.

 

Love the front and the back. I will enjoy the back side sometimes.

 

Claire’s patiently waiting and asks me, ” Can it be mine now?”

Sure it’s all yours. Mama took all the photos and wrote the post. 😉

 

I was lucky  enough to play with Bari J’s Sage collection for Art Gallery Fabrics.

I have been admiring and wondering how her fabrics would like over the screen and they are all mine now!

Things really happened if I keep wishing. 🙂
