Happy Friday everyone… Sorry for being a little quiet this week..
I had been busy figuring this…
And I’ve a list of Mistakes Made (MM) and Lesson Learnt (LL).
Yup, there’s all those M’s and L’s there.
MM No. 2: Very Sticky fingers after using Strong Adhesives.
DO NOT USE i.e. Super glueLL: I made a mistake in using super glue. My fingers were sticking all over and I made such a horrible mess 😦 (and of course, to remove all these stickiness, use nail polish remover. The acetone in the nail polish remover will remove stickiness too.. Really brilliant. And it will also remove any sickness on the clasp too.. so note to self, buy some Nail Polish Remover)
The correct adhesive kind of adhesive is this one on the picture (Clover Bond: For Handicraft). Is a white glue which leaves a clear mark when dries and less messy.
LL: The picture on the left show how I’ve used the Round Nose Pliers and made all the dents. Sigh!!! The correct tool is a flat-nose Pliers, and using a cloth to bind to the clasp as tightening along the side. This in return will make a smoother look like the one on the right.
So with all these horrid Mistakes and Brilliant Lesson Learnt, I must say, I’ve finally made some interesting coin purse although I’ve not really perfect them well. I really love them, though I think they still look a little wonky LOL..
and.. if you don’t mind me..
I think I deserve some break and I’m going to have some tea and cookies now..
What a week of sewing.. I better get back to all my needlework soon before the cloth get dusty. I’ll See you guys soon.
