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.

 

Fabric Haul – 18 September 2017

18 September 2017

Whenever there is a Stoffenspektakel / Marché du Tissu at Halles des Foires, Liège, I always take advantage of going there and not to miss it. We pass by some stalls but not all, and bought from three fabric stalls.

 

Annex Double-Zip Box Pouch

9 September 2017

A classmate of my youngest daughter invited her for her birthday and so I came up with a pencil case with two zippers on it in a small size of www.sewsweetness.com. It is an Annex Double-Zip Box Pouch which is pattern and video as well. Fabrics are from my stash, zippers are bought at veritas. I added embroidered name on it to have it personalised.

 

Cumberland Backpack

4 September 2017

My eldest daughter is in her secondary grade 1, so she needs a school bag and she requested a backpack. And so www.sewsweetness.com have this pattern plus video offered on sale the time I bought it together with three more pattern and video as well. That backpack is a cumberland backpack. I used the fabric I bought at stoffenspektakle which is an upholstery fabric in a cubic form of shape. I combine it with a cork fabric on the pocket which I bought at Les Tissus du Chien Vert Liege. As for the lining I bought that long time ago at www.cotonurbain.be. Zippers, twist lock, nylon strapping and bias tape are bought at veritas. I do not have mesh so I just use fabric instead.

 

DIY Dollhouse with lights

13 August 2017

We built/assembled, together with my eldest daughter, a diy dollhouse with lights as a gift for my youngest daughter for her eighth birthday. It took us at least ten days to finish it, why you would ask well we are always doing it when everybody else’s asleep and finish it early morning. This dollhouse was ordered at http://www.banggood.com. The name of the dollhouse is love castle and yes I modified it. I used popsicle sticks small and big, bought paints, varnish and adhesive foil. Took fabrics from my stash instead of using the one that is included inside the box. And yes I even took a video of the everyday updates we made and of course you will see the finish product.

 

Embroidered Wedding Photo

21 July 2017

It has been ten years since we got married in a catholic church in the Philippines. Although we got first married civilly here in Belgium a year before. I still remember all the preparations and delegation of a lot of stuff with my sister and BFF because I only stayed there for quite awhile. And now ten years has passed. So I thought of embroidering a gift for hubby but it seems like he discovered it while I was preparing for it because he and I shared our google photos and there was a notification on his side whenever I take photos, so there no longer a surprise. Anyway, what matters he likes the gift.
