machen und tun


my friends steffi's birthday was last week, so i borrowed a friend's sewing machine in berlin and put together a quick... thing? you be the judge. side note: my german is not yet good enough to understand the sewing machine manual.

mini making

here are a few small making projects i've done over the last couple of weeks:

i taught my mom how to knit. how many times does a son teach his mother how to knit? the next lesson will have to be welding. this is a picture with her and her squirrel towel.

while my mom was busy making clothes for rodents i was making another wrist band.

my snowboard bag before i fixed it...

...and then 30 seconds later.

my belt broke during the road trip from vancouver to colorado, so i cannibalized the buckle and with some cotton webbing and a new grommet i made a new one. ta-da.

the last minute sleeve for my new netbook.
