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.

 

Sublime Bag

3 June 2017

Finally I was able to make a Bag of the Month Club – February 2017. It is a Sublime Bag, pattern is from www.sewsweetness.com. Along the way of sewing this bag, I missed or I might have ignored some part that I didn’t read on the instruction so I just remedied it at the last moment. Not only that I accidentally cut the portion of the zipper tape and guess what it was where my zipper pulls are located, oh my I almost seam ripped the zipper. Good thing I was able to save it and pass the zipper pulls on the opposite side. The last problem that I encountered at the end was how to sew up and close the part where the zipper tape ends on both sides. Definitely that won’t pass through my machine so I did it by hand then. Just want to mention that the zipper I bought is not the usual thing that is used on a bag, well what I am trying to say is that both zipper pulls closes up when it is separated as in resting on both end of the zipper tape unlike the usual bag zippers, it closes up when they meet up in the middle.

 

Lilium Laptop Bag

24 April 2017

A Lilium Laptop Bag, pattern is from www. sewsweetness.com. I should have done this four months ago meant to be used by my eldest daughter for her elocution because she needs a good cushioned bag for her laptop when she will bring it to school just to present slides for her report together with a classmate. It is hard for me to construct this bag because of all the thickness going on inside, well mainly with the presence of the foam inside already but the rest it was ok. Even with the difficulties that I encounter this is already my third laptop bag would you believe. What matters is how will it look like at the end.
