My favorite part of the Thing-A-Day Challenge is the "permission" it gives me to craft just because I feel like it, and not because I should. It gives me the freedom to try new things without feeling like I might be wasting my time.
Of course the projects I "should" be working on are still there. And I have been working on them as well. But crafting just for the sheer enjoyment of it is exhilarating!
Today's project is simply clothesline, thread, and batik strips from a bali pop cut in half lengthwise. I am wrapping the cording as I sew with the cotton strips, and zigzagging the covered cording on my sewing machine. Years ago I made a set of chair pads with braided fabric. This process is similar, but much faster. This started out to be the first of a set of chair pads. I am not sure if that is how it will end up, but I am enjoying the process.
