I have been playing around with embroidering again. I am making snap tab keychains and bookmarks for my upcoming convention!
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!
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
Made with cotton gauze fabric that I accidently bought XD
Still trying to get the hang of making these travel bags with the piping around the edges
I’ve challenged myself to try to make at least one thing a day
Super cute retro travel makeup bag
Last Christmas I made my mom a tote bag and now for mother’s day I made her a matching coupon wallet. The wallet was not that easy to make!
This bag was a pain to make but it’s super cute! Follow my Instagram for progress pictures 🙂
I finally got my hands on this fabric (even though it’s only half a yard..) and made this gift for a friend. I plan to make more and different kinds of makeup/travel bags! (Just need to find more of this fabric XD)
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.
I used my 3D printer to print out some reindeer antlers to wear on Christmas. I printed them in white PLA filament then painted them a more ivory color. I used an elastic cord and tied a clasp on each end for easier use. Download the file here.
I made Tardis earrings as another gift for someone. Download the file here.
I had to take a gym class and a needed a tote bag to carry a change of clothes, water bottle, and my essentials (phone, wallet, keys). Instead of buying one, I took an old Batman hoodie I had and made it into a tote bag.
I found this awesome homespun yellow plaid fabric at Joann Fabrics for the inside lining that matched perfectly. I took apart the hoodie with a seam ripper and drew my pattern right onto it. Since sweatshirt fabric stretches, I attached a stiff interfacing to it. I used left over pieces of the hoodie to make pockets on the lining and added a welt pocket.
