Legend of Zelda Backpack

Mar 29, 2018 at 11:41 pm (accessories, bags, fashion) (, , , , , , , , )

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 to crochet

during the summer break between classes, I decided to teach myself how to crochet. I figure if I start now I can crochet everyone something for Christmas.

I started out practicing the different types of stitches and made some bows.

Octopus! This is the first stuffie I made

Batman tote bag

Jun 24, 2014 at 1:37 pm (accessories, fashion) (, , , , , , , , , )

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.
