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.
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
I’ve challenged myself to try to make at least one thing a day
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!
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.
