And it's all to the credit of elishama3 and her blog about making a finger guard.
It all happened as I was procrastinating_____not really tatting on something different. But thinking about tatting. I did the finger ring ___well sort of___I can't leave anything alone. Mine is a thumb ring to hold my hook! You will see below.
Then I went so far as to approach a closet. There were a lot of big clothes needing a new home at Goodwill so I wouldn't be tempted to eat myself back into them. hehehe!!! Wouldn't that be fun!!
Anyway, in the cleaning process I came across this SAS navy blue leather purse. I have saved it for years, even though it was less than perfect any morel Heck, it will be my all time favorite purse for many purses to come!! Scrap leather she said!! Needed to make a finger guard!! You bet. And it's in my favorite colored leather!!
So I cut the side out of the purse. Oh, does it feel good to be so destructive. Using 'good sewing shears' I cut a strip out of my favorite 'not so nice anymore but too valuable to part with at cleaning time SAS leather purse' Crunch, crunch, it cuts so elegantly. This is really fun!! But, back to the job at hand.
