1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute Lion Sweaters For Toddlers on: December 02, 2017 11:07:43 AM
Hello Everyone!

Though I am not a big fan of making kids clothing (I am very selfish when it comes to sewing , lol), but I would like to show what I made for my lovely niece and nephew last year for Christmas - cute matching lion sweaters! How cute are they?  Grin

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue Party Dress on: December 02, 2017 11:02:59 AM
Hello Everyone!

I would like to share one of my favourite creations this year - a blue dress that I made for a party!
The top part is fitted with V-neckline and the bottom is made using a half-circle skirt pattern (I added a quick how-to on my blog:
The dress is made from stretchy fabrics, so I had to include extra constructional steps (such as interfacing, lining and stabiliser) to give it a more defined shape and make it look like a special occasion dress, rather than an everyday dress.
Here is the final result - what do you think?  Wink

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Bag from a Jacket on: January 26, 2012 03:37:44 AM
Hello Everyone!

This is my latest bag made from a jacket which I found in a thrift store. It was a really interesting project: way easier to make than I thought it would be and it turned out to be my favorite bag (so far). I hope you like it Smiley

Blogged here: http://bagsyoucanmake.blogspot.com/2012/01/bag-from-jacket.html

If you want to make it yourself, I also posted a tutorial on my blog here: http://bagsyoucanmake.blogspot.com/2012/01/tutorial-how-i-made-bag-from-jacket.html

Ok, now the picture time:

And this is a jacket which gave me an idea for this bag:

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Classic Shoulder Bag/Clutch/Purse on: January 16, 2012 06:22:10 AM
Hello Craftsters!

Since I haven't showed you anything new in a while, I thought I'd show you my most favorite bag Smiley I made a removable strap for this bag, so it can be carried in 3 different ways: like a shoulder bag, like a clutch and like a purse. The pattern, like in all my previous bags, was drafted by me. The bag is made from faux crocodile leather, which is very beautiful (in my opinion, of course) and quite easy to work with.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Basic T-shirt on: January 11, 2012 02:04:56 AM

So today I'd like to show you my basic T-shirt that I made a week ago. I love T-shirts, because I can create many different looks based one the same shirt.

And I love making my own T-shirt, because I can make them as I want: with the neckline that suits me best, with the best length for my figure, with the best fit and so on Smiley

What do you think about handmade T-shirt? I'd love to hear your opinions! Smiley

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Small Cosmetic Bag on: January 09, 2012 05:23:36 AM
Hello Craftsters!

I'd like to share with you my latest creation. I needed a small bag that could carry all my necessities and which I could easily throw in any purse. So, in a couple of hours, I came up with this faux-leather and cotton bag.

Blogged here (with a small tutorial): http://bagsyoucanmake.blogspot.com/2012/01/tutorial-cosmetic-bag.html

Have a nice day! Smiley

The braided shirt I made a couple of years ago and still like wearing it. Very useful when I have to go to a party and 'have nothing to wear' Cheesy

Have a nice day! Smiley
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Grown-up Backpack on: December 29, 2011 01:54:34 AM
Hello Craftsters!

Today I'd like to show you the backpack I made in autumn. The idea of this bag was "why only children can have backpacks? I want one!", so I made a backpack for me! Very simple and minimalistic, made from linen pants.

Blogged here (I also have a tutorial on blog, which I was a bit too lazy to copy here Grin ): http://bagsyoucanmake.blogspot.com/2011/10/tutorial-backpack.html

So, the photos:

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tutorial: Re-fashioned cardigan on: December 26, 2011 11:57:59 AM
Hello Everyone!

I'd like to share with you my latest project: a re-fashioned cardigan. What I did: I took an old simple cardigan, cut off sleeves and made a braid along the neckline. Very easy, very simple idea what to do with an old cardigan you no longer use (I just hope I posted it in the right section Cheesy )

Blogged here: http://bagsyoucanmake.blogspot.com/2011/12/tutorial-re-fashioned-cardigan.html

So, let's start with 'before' and 'after' pics (I do not know why the photos are a bit unclear, maybe I did something wrong uploading?):

And now how I made it:

 1. Decide how short you want your sleeves, mark it and cut (photo 1). Fold the end of the sleeve and sew, like you see in photo 2.

2. Take the cut-off sleeve, cut the end (don't know how to say it, but cut the part that has different knitting Grin ). Take the remaining part of the cut-off sleeve and cut as many long stripes as you can (stripes should be 2,5 cm (about 1 inch) width). Sew the ends of the stripes so that you have 3 very long stripes.

3. Take one stripe, wrong side facing up, sew the long edge and turn it inside out. Repeat with the remaining 2 stripes (photo 3). Take the stripes and braid nicely (as you see in photo 4, I secured the ends of the braid with tape, but you can secure it in any way you want).

4. Take the braid, put it along the entire neckline and stitch by hand (photo 5). Stitches should not be visible from outside (photo 6). As for the ends, remove the tape (if you used it), push raw ends inside and secure by stitching.

That's it. I hope I explained everything clearly.
If you have any questions - please leave them in the comments and I'll answer them!

Have a nice day!

Hello dear Craftsters!

I've been watching your wonderful creations for quite some time, and now I decided to show you some of my bags. Making bags is one of my hobbies, I even started a blog about it. I actually started sewing bags not so long ago - at the beginning of the summer. The bag in this thread was one of the first ones I ever made and the one I use mostly. Materials: an old skirt and faux leather. I hope you like it Smiley
