Easy Children Rayon Dress Sewing Project

My new sewing project, super easy rayon dress for children. And it’s super comfortable too. I made mistake by cutting the neckline too big, but I added elastic to make it smaller. I didn’t use any pattern, I just trace the dress that fit my daughter well. The fabric pattern is cute, so I didn’t want to add any embellishment to it. My daughter wear this dress a lot at home, and when we go outside, she just need extra legging-pants.

Vintage Red Polkadot Frame Bag Sewing Project

This is my favorite to-go bag so far. I used this almost everyday now. I plan to make frame bag like this in another color to match my outfit. Maybe I will use invisible thread next time, since I can’t sew the fabric to the metal frame nicely. Outer fabric is cotton-linen, batting is using interfacing 2 mm one-side fusible, and for the liner is polyester fabric special for lining. Frame is made from metal, 20 cm length. OK, it’s not a tutorial post. There are so many tutorial how to make frame bag like this, just google them šŸ™‚…

Watercolor Waves Crossbody Bag Sewing Project

Watercolor Waves Crossbody Bag Sewing Project is my first bag sewing project. Outer fabric is cotton canvas, Watercolor Waves from P. Kaufmann, which is really bright and fun color to work with. For batting,Ā I used interfacing 2mm 180 gram fusibleĀ 1-side adhesive. And for liner I used calico fabric, which is a bit heavier in my opinion.

You don’t have to spend time to look for your…

Children Backpack Sewing Project. This is a fun project that took me 7 hours non-stop to make. I’m very happy with the result. I used red polkadot cotton-linen fabric for the outer, interfacing 2mm 180 gr with adhesive one-side from cotton and polyester for batting, and creamy white polyester fabric for lining.
