Yesterday I had a chance to try and do some sewing. Tim Miller in Industrial Design at VUW gave me an excellent tutorial on how to use his sewing machine. He left me to my own devices and I made a few pouches out of fused plastic bags. Here are a few pictures of one of them.
I made another similar pouch that turned out pretty good as well. I needed a place to put pens in my office, so I tacked it onto my corkboard. A perfect penholder. I’ll upload some photos of it in action tomorrow.
One of the most encouraging things about this experiment is that I’ve never used a sewing machine before and I really enjoyed it and had some success.
Next up, make a projection screen.
