Sweatkleid Chloe/Teenie Bella/Easy Modern Apron of Betz White

23 December 2017

These are the last clothes and gift that I made for my DIY Christmas Sewing Gifts/Ideas 2017. Two dresses for my daughters, for the eldest it is a Sweatkleid Chloe and for my youngest it is a Sweatkleid Teenie Bella, patterns are both from www.pattydoo.de. Both fabrics are jersey knit fabrics that I bought at Royal Tissus here in Liege. The Easy Modern Apron of Betz White is a class from www.craftsy.com. One of the fabrics I used here is also bought at Royal Tissus and the other is from stash.

Voku-Hila Rock Skirt

21 December 2017

Finally I made this Voku-Hila-Rock Skirt, pattern is from http://www.pattydoo.de. This is an experiment because I don’t have any idea of what fabric will I use but in this case I used a blue jeans fabric that I have, plain and easy to pair it with a decorative shirt or blouse. This jeans is not that thick but there’s still stiffness in it. Easy to follow instructions from youtube and at the same time easy to sew. My sister from Philippines says that such skirt is the “in“ thing there.

 

 

Annex Double-Zip Box Pouch

18 December 2017

My eldest daughter asked this project long time ago and you know me I always have this bad habit to — procrastinate but I am able to make it on time. This is Annex Double – Zip Box Pouch, pattern is from www.sewsweetness.com. I made this night till dawn and so I have to recuperate some zzZZZ after. This is my daughters’ gift for what they call “cacauette” or simply exchange gifts at her school. And of course I prefer not to wrap so you can see on the photos how it will be given.

 

Men’s Shirt “Max”

16 December 2017

Next project in line are these shirts of www.pattydoo.de, it’s Men’s Shirt “Max”. In these shirts I have to mix & match and should pay attention to not have an identical finished shirt that I have made before, although yes indeed it has the same fabrics as before because I have bought meters and meters of that same fabrics.

 

Elegant Machine Embroidered Bags – Custom Tote

7 December 2017

Holiday season is fast approaching and I am a bit late for our “gifts” so have to rush rush things. This is the first time I made a custom tote on a www.craftsy.com class – an Elegant Machine Embroidered Bags of Amanda Murphy. I choose different matching embroidery threads to be paired with the bottom fabrics that I have chosen. The white fabric is from my stash and that ‘s from Ikea fabrics then bottom fabrics are from stash as well of Stoffenspektakel. Thread floss are from www.berninabritte.be and I make it a point to have reserves in times of need. As for the straps it has been bought from Veritas store.

 

Reversible Shopper Bag “Wendy”

5 December 2017

This has been requested long, long time ago and finally I was able to finish it. A Reversible Shopper Bag “Wendy”, pattern is from http://www.pattydoo.de. These fabrics have been bought at Stoffenspektakle/Marché du Tissu last September. I did not add interfacing but the white Ikea fabric  that I added serves as an interlining of the bag. An embroidered name has been added as well.

Embroidered Gift Photo

26 October 2017

A cousin of mine have been working in Germany for quite sometime now and she will be there for more than two years still and so I will be seeing her again for the third time if I am not mistaken and so I planned this beautiful embroidered gift photo of her and her daughter. I always ask the same digitiser on http://www.etsy.com she is from Russia. Anyway, this embroidered photo took sometime to embroider although I was able to finish it in a day which is great because my machine can maximise stitches up to 800 spm but in this case I only used 500 spm so that is quite ok. I was able to find a new photo frame in our apartment which is still wrapped as if it was just been bought recently so that is a good thing. In these photos you will see the threads that I used and the sequence of embroidery that I made.
