Sewing adventures: a tote bag

Hi dear friends! My stocking stuffer idea was a tote bag a simple one. 
So I made one actually 3 of these and gave as gifts. 

I bought a piece of nice starry fabric at a thrift shop for 1.5 e on sale. From one piece I could make 3 super super happy. Of course I pre washed and ironed it. Cut into three pieces and sewed a dog tried to make it a borzoi leather aplique. 

So it is the result ☺️

Stuffed cuties time

Hi, friends ;) Here I have made some cuties, as I call them. They are little sewn stuffed creatures, they are among my favourite things to sew ;) Also they make great keychains ;) And who doesn't want to use all the fabric scraps and bead leftovers? Do you have any spare buttons? You can use them. I collect them- you can use old buttons too. See, of course it is a fun little project. 

Cutie nr 1 my daughter wants to adopt him - The Rabbit

Cutie nr 2 A Girl

Cutie nr 3 A Fatty Little Something ;) 

Oh this is it for now, when will I get more serious? ;) 

Have a wonderful celebration time! 

My dog wants to wish you Merry Christmas too.

So Cool felt sewing machine

My daughter got this machine from Santa. She had wanted it. 

What a cool machine it sews without thread just with a needle ;) actually 6 needles. There is a special fabric, but it can sew another type of thin felt ;) too I think. 

My daughter first sewed a cupcake; it is in the kit ;) The edges are a bit raw but it is ok as she had a great time ;) 

Then she was happy to make a bag this time we turned it inside out ;) 

Later we made a little pouch for her friend from dance classes Auguste. I sewed a button and the handle but my seven-year old can do it too.

After that she decided to sew a little friend 

This the result 

She couldn't make the body, it was too small for felting-sewing with So Cool for her. 

So these are our little adventures with So Cool. I hope, it won't get boring and my daughter will make more nice projects. ;) 

Best Wishes

On a soutache kick

Hi! I've been into soutache recently, I have a lot if soutache in my beading stash, I didn't use it at the time I was interested ;) So I am looking forward to using it this time ;) at least some of it. 

At first I made a pair of earings as a practice I was inspired by a gorgeous  piece on the pinterest. Mine is in colours: blue and burgundy, unfortunately my swarowski rivoli slightly don't match :( 
  One is darker than the other oh ...never mind. 

Here is another pair, that I am making 

Another project is my old hair clip- I am going to dress ir up, I am using an old flower from a necklace, beads, some soutache ;) The fabric is from a thrifted chair cover, the rest I used up gor a purse organiser ;)
It is real fun wheb I can embroider ;) So I will take pictures in day light. By for now ;)

Little stuffed diy elephants (no beads)

Hi I am on a little stuffed animals kick. I found the pic on the Pinterest; they looked absolutely adorable to me (and my son agrees ;)) Here is that tutorial: 

And here is my version of the elephant. I think they can be an easy Christmas little gift. Mine are a bit light or flimay I need more stuffing. ;) My plan is to make a colourful appliquw on the belly and improve the legs. 
Bye for now ;)
And another version which I have made recently ;)

My refashioning adventures ;)

Hi hello ...Labas (in Lithuanian) after a long long long break, I am so so happy I have downloaded a Blogger app -it is cool so convenient; it will be a reminder to do something with my beads ;) 

 I hopefully can find time to make some Christmas gifts or some acessories for myself ;) 

Do you ever buy on a whim ? I mean clothes, it happened with the dress; it is of the softest, the most gorgeous cotton that I like. However, the siluette didn't suit my figure. In irder to solve the problem, I have measured carefully  and cut off to make it shorter into a shirt. Of course careful hemming is necessary, have sewn sides in to make it narrower. Then I concocted a necklace from the bottom fabric. 

Don't throw away give your pieces a second chance. 

I am wearing the piece to the theatre it is not very chic but it was ok... 
Bye for a while!
