My laptop bag tutorial on Sew Mama Sew!

My laptop bag tutorial on Sew Mama Sew!
I was so excited when Beth from Sew Mama Sew! invited me to contribute to their Back to School month of projects. I thought it would be the perfect time to actually make the laptop bag I wanted for quite some time. Right after I received the colorful-and-oh-so-awesome fabrics from designer Jessica Jones, I knew I had to use them for this project, her fabrics are one of my top favorites, so you should check them out! Actually it was so hard for me to pick just one fabric, I used 2 different ones, one for the front and one for the back! I love it because it’s like I have 2 bags in one, I just switch the side! So today finally the tutorial went live at Sew mama Sew, and Jessica also posted about it in her blog How About Orange, could this day get any better? I am actually working on a passport pouch and checkcover to match the bag so wen I go to Chile in september I can take all of them with me and of course I will share the how-to’s for you to do the same if you’d like!

Tissue case tutorial I’ve used my new sewing machine to make these very simple tissue cases from scrap of linen fabrics. They are basically a lined fabric rectangle folded to meet at the center. I make the outer fabric longer than the lining fabric so it automatically folded inside, because I don’t like the lining fabric showing at the edge. It also eliminates the need of topstitching. The tutorial is only two pages, but please tell me if something is not clear in it. Disclaimer: You may use the finished products for both personal and commercial use (craft shops or markets only – no mass production).

Volants à main tutoriel I know I teased a lot with this tutorial, mostly because I made it so long a go, 4 months a go to be exact. I took the pictures the week I moved this little blog to wordpress. Since things got so busy after that I almost forgot I had it, until just a few weeks back. Sling Bag Tutorial - Part 1 I tend to have a short attention span when it comes to projects, that's why I like making a variety of things. My Etsy shop has an assortment of stuff in it for that very reason...I don't want to make the same style of the same product over and over! Bags are one of my favorite things to make when I feel like changing up the pace a little.

Flowers Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1. I find inspiration for projects all over the place {online, in shops, in magazines}, then figure out how to re-create them on my own. Each of these projects are my adaptation of something I’ve seen elsewhere.
