That waste depot was like catnip mate - I wanted to spend the rest of the day wandering round it.

Some of you know in my spare time I run a cassette label, specialising in ambient electronica - I'm just in the process of putting out a new release. 

Last year, with a mind to making a jacket or something, I bought a few metres of British Millerain off ebay: needless to say it's remained gathering dust ever since. One of the things I like to do with my tape releases is to give them unusual packaging (I also do lino prints to go with each one), so I thought... why not make little bags out of the Millerain for the latest album to go in? 

here it is laid out, with the pattern marked out (it's a pretty basic pattern cause frankly my seamstressing is pretty basic too)



here's some closeups of the cloth - it's lovely stuff. 





This is my sewing machine - a 1970s german workhorse. Basic but solid and reliable. 


first: sew in the drawstring (I got some leather thong for this)



...then down the side seam



then I folded it over so the side seam was down the centre:



then turn it inside out and pop one of these copper rings on the drawstring.



...like so



and finally, printed up with the lino print insert etc:



check it out here if you like (hit me up for a download code if you like it and want a copy of the music btw) https://portlandvows.bandcamp.com/album/this-fragile-workforce

Thanks for sharing the album, really enjoying listening to it on BandCamp right now.
I love ambient electronic music as it helps me focus and relax at work.
