1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Another weekender travel bag on: August 30, 2010 06:13:59 AM
I adventured myself sewing the Weekender Travel Bag, by Amy Butler:

I made a blister in my finger handstitching the lining but it was worth every damn stitch (the lining is the same fabric as piping)

This one is not that stiff as most I've seen online because I didn't use Peltex (no such thing around here). . Fabrics came from IKEA, again. I could have matched the pattern  but I have a life beyond my sewing machine and no extra fabric for that Smiley

I really like my new bag and I'm going to make some as xmas gifts (only to persons who can appreciate all the work such thing envolves  Undecided)

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My friend's Tattane bag on: August 18, 2010 09:56:29 AM
After seeing the Tatanne bag from Crafty Des, I thought it would be a nice gift to a upcoming friend's birthday. She carries a lot of things in her purse (unlike me, I only carry the essential stuff in a backpack, not a purse) and this bag has a good size (only realize the real size after finishing it  Tongue).

So, IKEA fabrics in action and got this:

Side view:

The lining (should have stitched that velcro straight)

By the way, my friend loved the bag! Cheesy

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink alert! 'little' girl dress on: August 18, 2010 06:57:51 AM
My 9 yo niece asked to make her a pink dress for her birthday. So I bought the pinkest pink I found in the fabric store (although the photos don't show the real colour) and made this - a shirred dress with a big bow and a ruffle:

The dress is a bit flowy so I made a bow tie belt with the same fabric. My niece loves girly clothes, so I guess she's going to love it

Why this dress fits almost my dressform?Because my 9 yo niece is almost the same size as I am (thirtish... yo)

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Denim apron on: July 18, 2010 02:54:46 PM
I haven't post anything in a very long time but I thought this denim apron deserved being here. I made it for a friend who works with me at a college library. She wanted an apron to protect her clothes from books dust. I had so much fun doing this, despite I broke 4 needles size 16 and bent another 2

Hope you like it


5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / From a men's shirt to a dog's bed on: October 12, 2009 10:14:56 AM
(I hope I'm posting this in the right place...)

My mum's dog is staying with me while she's out of town and I wanted to do something nice to make him fell better here.

So, I got a XXL shirt from my hubby's closet, sewed the sleeves and the upper part of the shirt and cutted off this parts. I stuffed the shirt with an old bed-cover my mum gave me a few months.
Here are the photos

Hope you like it

I 'borrowed' this Gant shirt from my husband that was wayyy to big for him (he was 90kg when he bought the shirt, he's now 76 kg)

and after cutting here and there and sewing it too tight lol, I got this

Hope you like it

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Turquoise top on: September 12, 2009 01:25:17 PM
So, some time ago i tried to make a top out of a Burda pattern. I wresteled with the jersey fabric until I got sick of it and put it again in the fabric bin.

Today, I saw that fabric again and decided i had to do something with it - this came out
