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! 😀

Fabric is from spoonflower here

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.

Learning Embroidery

I have been learning how to use my new embroidery machine and making custom designs. So far I’ve only been embroidering on tea towels (kitchen towels) and giving them as gifts. There has been a lot of trial and error!

Experimenting

I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make the PokemonGo hats. Iron on transfers are okay; spray on fabric paint however was not. After letting the paint dry then washing per instructions, the paint faded. I really liked the color too! 😦 Next up I will experiment with embroidering the hats instead.

PokemonGo hats

Now that I am taking a break from classes, I wanted to make my PokémonGo avatar’s hat to wear around as I walked around looking for Pokémon. Then I thought, why not make a bunch of them and see if people would be interested in buying them.

Currently I have the one avatar’s design in yellow and red. I will be on offering it in blue as well (since everyone I came across asked for it) along with other custom colors. I am also planning on making other various Pokémon hat designs. I will post updates and work on getting these posted on my etsy store.
