My bathroom clock died a few months back. I’ve been missing it. After making my little ottoman cover, I had the brain storm of making a cloth clock. Why not?
So I made a big circle out of paper, folded it until I came up with the right size, repeatable triangle pattern and started to cut a swatch from 12 of my recent fabric designs. Here’s the result.
This clock brings new meaning to the Confucius curse, “May you live in interesting times.” The point being, you’ll be so distracted, you’ll never find enlightenment. These are the times we live in.
I’m thinking about adding rhinestones where the numbers go. Might as well go all-in for distraction.
I finished sewing it and started to assemble the clock works only to discover, I was missing the minute hand! Sigh…..
I’ve ordered two clock works on line. They’ll have fancier hands that will show better on the busy background. So, it was a blessing in disguise. They should be here by Dec. 17th.
I’ll get working on the one I plan to make for a friend in California. I don’t think she’ll mind if I’m a bit late from the actual Christmas date. But, I will have worked out all the “how-to’s” on my bathroom clock by the time the complete clockwork sets arrive. Another fun distraction.
