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.

17 August 2017

Getting ready for summer vacation in France and since it is a long trip I made the girls a cuddly seatbelt pillow.  I made these already its just that the first time was with a pillow inserts and of two different sizes but these seatbelt pillows are without pillow inserts and the fabric is a bit fluffy and  I combined it with jeans fabric for the pockets and embroidered name on it.

 

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.

 

Embroidered Photo

27 June 2017

An embroidered photo gifts for my eldest daughters friends since they are all “graduating” primary. I ask an embroidery digitizer from www.etsy.com to have it digitized. My hoop size here is 6″ x 10″ and used a black Isacord embroidery thread. My machine have different number of speeds for stitching and in this case I used them all to speed up but at the beginning I do always use the slowest which is 350spm (175minutes) until I increased it as time goes by due to deadline purposes. The fabric that I used here is from Ikea – Minna, from my stash.

Sweatkleid “Bella” and “Chloe”

27 June 2017

I made a dress for my youngest daughter for her sisters’ primary “graduation”. I combined it with plain yellow fabric and grey fruity jersey. Next is my eldest daughters dress and of course it is for her “graduation”. A plain white jersey paired it with a decorative heart jersey fabrics. Both dresses are pattern of www.pattydoo.de. These are the existing jersey fabrics that I have because I used these also to their other clothing. Both are from my stash and bought at stoffenspektakel.
