tiny happy: shoulder bag tutorial

Here's a rough pattern and guide for making a shoulder bag like one of these, as promised. These are really easy to make, and I always have so much fun choosing fabrics and buttons for them. I have to warn you however that i'm not very good at explaining things in words, so I hope you can understand my general meaning in these directions!

tiny happy: a dress for hot weather tiny happy: a dress for hot weather Here are the instructions for making your very own Beach Dress, as promised yesterday. It really is a dress for hot weather- mine is made from lightweight fabric, is knee-length and ties up at the nape of the neck. But I think you could also make it from a stretch jersey cotton or a fine wool fabric and wear it over warmer layers if you like. Ironically, today is the darkest and rainiest we've had this summer- so I'm sorry that some of the photos are rather dull. Hopefully you get the picture anyway.

I paid $3.00 for the sweater... I found two sweaters with this tag...lucky me! Start by cutting off the sleeves just inside the arm-hole seams Next cut at the neck... I lined up a straight edge across the bottom of the armpits to make sure my neck cut would be as deep as my arm cuts. Try to make the arm curves and the neck curves match...I had to fool with it a little after these pics to get them even.
