Hyrule Shield Crossbody Bag

I made this super cute Legend of Zelda Hyrule Shield crossbody bag. It’s just big enough to fit my phone, small wallet, and keys. The embroidery file is from Off With Their Threads.

Keychains and Bookmarks

I have been playing around with embroidering again. I am making snap tab keychains and bookmarks for my upcoming convention!

embroidery files are from:

Experimenting with Tumblers

I learned how to use epoxy and make custom tumblers. I was able to make some in time as gifts for Christmas! Right now I have a make-shift manual cup turner (which is a pain and very time consuming), but I plan on designing and building my own motorized cup turner – this will make the process much easier! I learned how to do this by watching a ton of YouTube videos 🙂

These photos do not do the glitter justice!
Check out my instagram or facebook page to see the glitter sparkle in my videos!

Snack Scarves

Patterns for Pirates posted a free pattern for an infinity scarf with a pocket (link here). I’ve made 3 as gifts for Christmas and my giftees loved them. These are so fun to make! I like to call them snack scarves because I like to keep snacks in them 🙂

I will be offering them for sale in my etsy shop soon!

Coffee and Cats Travel Sets

Second commission complete! The inside lining colors match the zipper/piping color for each set.

Super Hero Wristlets

I made a bunch of Marvel and DC super hero wristlet bags

Sailor Moon Travel Bag Set

I recently had my first commission! A friend asked me to make a travel bag set for his wife’s birthday. She liked her gift! 😀

Legend of Zelda Backpack

I found the most awesome Legend of Zelda fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a while back and bought the entire bolt. Aftwr a long search, I finally found a nice fabric to match. I decided the first thing I’m making is a backpack.

I drafted my pattern by looking at a backpack I owned then made a muslin to test it out.

I tried my best to match the patterns.. not so easy! I used a thick woven interfacing to make the fabric more sturdy. This was my first time using metal zippers; not too bad except when I forgot they were metal and broke 6 needles (haha). Even after messing up a few times, I think it turned out well.
