Wasp Bag

Another Wasp Bag! Sadly, I’ve only got shaky, blurry mobile phone images of it, as my camera’s batteries were running low. And as I was giving it away to a friend that day, it was my last chance to take a picture of it. But my friend promised me to take some pictures of it and send them to me! So hopefully there’ll be some higher-quality ones around soon. =)

I love this bag! It was hard to let it go 😉 I chose a thrift store fabric in gray as the outside and another thrift store fabric in flowery blue/white for the inside and the handles, as well as the frayed fabric flower I made to accessorize the bag.

As I mentioned before, the Wasp Bag tutorial can be found here. And the tutorial I used for the fabric flower was posted here.

Patchwork Lavender Pillow

Lavender Pillow

When a friend of mine was contemplating about getting something smelling of lavender to save her clothes from the evil moths, I quickly suggested I could sew something for her, as I had some lavender left over from an earlier project.
So I rummaged through my fabric scraps and put together some that were similar in colour and much too small to use in other projects.
All in all this project wasn’t a highly scientific one, as I just aligned the scraps in a way I liked and started sewing them together, getting a more or less rectangular shape. I did this both for the front and the back of the pillow.

I then cut them into rectangles of the same size, after pressing the seams open. Next, I did sew them together along all four sides, right sides together, leaving a small opening. I also clipped the corners.

After turning the pillow inside out and once again pressing the whole thing ….

… I filled it with the lavender and hand-sewed the opening closed. Voilá!

iPod Case

Wow, it’s been such a long time since I posted something on here. Life’s been quite a whirlwind in the last few months. End of semester exams are now all over and done with, luckily. And, I started my master thesis! I guess my summer will be spent mostly on getting done as much as possible regarding that. But hopefully there will also be time for the odd crafting. =)

Although it’s been quiet here, I nevertheless got a few things done/sewn. So there’ll be a massive update over the next few days…

First of all, one of my favourites that’s been in heavy use ever since I finished it: my new iPod case!

I got the idea during one of my visits to the gym. Where to put the iPod while doing the weights? I need my constant entertainment! 😉

Well, I made an iPod case for my upper arm. I kind of based it on Pink Penguin’s tutorial for a Simple Camera Case.
Of course I adjusted the shape to fit my iPod touch. I also added a Velcro closure and a casing at the back for my adjustable strap, which itself uses lots of Velcro. I am really pleased with the result, I have to say =)
