# MAKE A THING A DAY
#makeathingaday is an Instagram project started in January 2015 by George Winks of Temper Studio (http://temperstudio.com/) to kick start his creative year, as a way of testing new ideas, and as a personal challenge to make something new each day for a week. George shared this process with the Instagram community, with a draw at the end of the week to giveaway the items he had made. Following his week of making, he invited another couple of makers to take on the challenge and since then the baton has been passed onto a succession of creative and talented makers.
In April 2015 we gladly accepted a nomination from Julia at Knapp (http://knappstudio.co.uk/) and took on the #makethingaday challenge! This page is an archive of our week's work. Click on any of the images to see our documentation of the process and for finished photos of each item we made.
DAY 1 - FORAGING BAG
A waxed canvas and leather foraging bag with an internal knife pocket and riveted leather loops for either hanging off a belt or for a detachable shoulder strap which we also made during the day.
A simple and elegant cylindrical pencil case using our oak bark tanned bridle leather, and hand sewn with a waxed linen thread using a cross type of saddle stitch.
