WHAT DO YOU USE TO CARRY YOUR EMBROIDERY PARAPHERNALIA?

#seamstress #wwproblems I was carrying this ugly ziplock pouch with my threads for a while now for when I m doing #embroidery while in the transports or away from home and was feeling pretty ashamed for having such an ugly thing in my bag. Lazyness winning it all I really had to wait the moment when the bottom openned and I was gonna loose things to find a better option. I then decided to go for a gorgeous #vintagezipper in a #powderpink color with #ivory #silkorganza so I could see through which I find convenient. I aslo added some #couture#frenchseams ET VOILA! Pretty happy that good old plastic bag collapsed!👧🏻🤘🏻#sewing

First sewing PDF TUTORIAL ON ETSY

I am really excited to announce that I just put my first PDF DOWNLOADABLE SEWING TUTORIAL on Etsy.

 

https://www.etsy.com/listing/271022925/pdf-tutorial-for-purse-with-zipper-with?ref=shop_home_active_1

 

It is for my very favorite kind of zippered purse, the ones that are ALWAYS with me while on the road.

I just love these purses and made a few for myself or for friends.

These are so versatile and convenient to tidy your crafty materials, make up, papers, pencils…..

This tutorial took me a while to achieve, because it means, making a purse step by step, while taking a massive amount of pictures at each step and also trying to write down the explanations as clearly as possible.

I made my very best and hope you ll enjoy it.

It is of course suitable for the very beginners, even the ones scared by the thought of sewing a zipper in place!

 

 

SEWING WITH LEATHER! From a pile of leftovers to a handbag.

Last summer while having my stall as usual at the Brunswick Festival in Hove, I was selling a Vintage dress to a lovely woman who just found the perfect one to match a piece of leather she just bought minutes ago…..

That was such an amazing quality of lambskin and I immediatly fell in love with the colour and the cute silver dots. I was lucky enough to be told that there were a pile of these left, for sale , just 2 stalls away from mine, at the stall of my lovely neighbour Jo. I bought all that was left, not knowing for sure what I was gonna do with these. Jo told me she silk printed them herself but couldn t find the time to use them.

I decided to give a go and try to make the perfect sized handbag, with a lot of zippered pockets and a removable padded pouch for my Ipad mini.

Getting a bit of inspiration and measurements from a friend' s bag I pulled out the rotative cutter and looked for the vintage zippers I had in my stash.

It was also the first time I used the very handy hand press machine, so much more efficient than the hammer method.

Making a bag needs a lot of thinking and for me it was a first to do such a sophisticated one, so I made a bit of mistakes, but the result is ok. And I ve got all the pockets and places to tidy my survival kit while travelling.

And, cherry on the cake, I ve got enough leather left to make one or 2 zipper pouch like the one I use for my drawing tools.

 

Next step might be to sew a black quilted lambskin handbag, Chanel style!…..

From Tablecloth to 60′ s A-line dress

I ve been given 2 huge bin bags full of old tablecloth. I usually accept all kinds of vintage fabric, linen, curtains, etc…..as I know some of them can become very interesting to upcycle.

I ve made some of my favorite dresses from curtains.

I also decided I wanted to sew A-line dresses for my stall next summer at the Brunswick Festival in Hove. They are easy to do, suit and fit most of the people and are timeless.

I decided to give a go with these tablecloth, using an old ” pattern” I found 4 years ago in a tutorial from Elle magazine. It s a very simple pattern, 2 pieces of fabric, front darts at the bust and no closure. The pattern goes for facings around the neckline and armholes, but I decided to sew bias instead. I also rounded a bit the armholes.

In case you are interested to give it a go, here are the patterns, the measurments are in centimeters and DO NOT include the 1.5cm seam allowances.

For the first dress, I choose the fabric I liked less to check first if I liked this pattern.

I must admitt I m quite happy with the result and even made a coordinating Tote Bag for fun!

More A- line dresses to come soon!!!!
