New: Tutorials Page

A couple of days ago I added a new page to this blog – Tutorials.

I’ll be compiling a list of great free tutorials that can be found on the Internet. Hopefully some of you will get inspired by the compiled projects!

Just Because: Fabric Mosaic

Some of the fabrics lying around here, waiting to be used in some great new sewing project…

Another Wasp Bag

Another Wasp Bag =)

Anybody getting bored yet? 😉

This time it was for my aunt’s birthday, using one of my favourite fabrics ever (the purple one). I bought it on a trip to Stockholm, at my favourite ever fabric store, Ohlssons. I don’t know anything about the producer or its name but love its vibrant color.


And finally, the bag:

As before, I also made a frayed fabric flower to go with 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.

A change I made with regards to the original tutorial was to once again ditch the proposed pocket (which I couldn’t get my head around) and add a zippered pocket instead.

Another fabric necklace

This time quite a bit longer, to wrap around the neck once or twice =)

I used one of my favourite fabrics, one of those that has been lying around for quite some time as I never got the chance to make the top out of it that I was planning to do. (I am still at the muslin-testing stage.) It’s once again from Ikea – the blue Josefin variety this time.

Oh, and of course this necklace was once again inspired by Amy Butler’s fabric necklace.
