This is my first toy, a dragon I made for my boyfriend. Have to wait a while untill we meet and I can give him the gift, but I just have to show it to somebody He sits on my shoulder when I'm reading and likes to hide under my t-shirt so that only his tail is sticking out, and at nights he sleeps in my underwear drawer...I feel that it will be really hard for me to finally part with him Sorry, the pictures were taken with my phone camera which sucks, but I couldn't wait till my Mom gets back from a vacation with a normal camera He's made from grey velvet. The wings are attached a but assymetrical as can be seen on the third picture, but I guess I'll live with it Here's where I took the pattern from: http://www.wyrm.org.uk/cuddly/beanbag.html - the sewing inctructions there are really good.
This is nothing special, but it was my first attempt at reconstructing Old jeans -> new skirt. (I used to think that finding a pair of useless jeans was easier! Every pair I took made me think "oh no, it would be a pity to destroy them, I'd certainly wear them again" I guess it's just me
Made this bag because I started to learn to play whistle and didn't have any bag quite wide enough to carry it along with me I still would like to decorate it somehow but I'm using it already while I'm still thinking on it..
I made a new year present for my best friend and I can't help showing it to somebody since I can't show it to her before new year I fell in love with the lining fabric! If I didn't love my friend more than everybody in this world, I would be so sad to part with it I like that the flowers kind of don't look too girly if you know what I mean. She loves horseback riding so I thought I'd decorate the bag with this leather horse applique. Can you believe I hand stiched it all the way round, and it took me like an hour, and then I was ironing it and accidentally burned the horse's tail with my iron! I was so mad. I'm proud I had the patience to cut out a new horse and start it all over again!
Here's the front:
with the flap opened:
and inside: it has a zippered pocket and a cell phone pocket (it can be seen on the left with a phone sticking out)
Here is how the outer part was assembled together:
First I made front and back: 3 rows of 3 squares then stiched together row by row. Then I made sides and bottom (rows of 3 squares again). Then I stiched front and back to the bottom, and the sides after that. The lining was assembled the same way just it didn't consist of squares thanks God And after that I followed the tutorial I gave the link to for the top part with the zipper. (Ah, and that bag has different straps - mine were sewn between the layers before I turned the thing inside out.)
If that doesn't make much sense or you have more questions, just ask!
