Mary Jane Slippers By Lisa Gutierrez on 04/01/2008 **I thought this was obvious, but apparently not: PLEASE OH PLEEASE do not use any of my photos without my permission! I’m a nice person, so if YOU ask nicely, I’d make a consideration. The promised tutorial Here it is! This is another of my tutorials for knits, for which you need to use an existing fitted t-shirt pattern as a base. I think most people will have one or more of those in pattern stash, and if you don't, you can always go and get Burdastyle's Lydia. I'm using my knit sloper, which has more waist shaping than Lydia.
Tutorial: Lunch Bag Thank you for encouraging me to write up a tute on this lunch (bento box) bag! I really like this bag pattern because this bag, measuring approximately 9"(width) x 7 1/2"(hight w/o handles) x 5 1/2" (depth), can be used not only for bento boxes of any kind but also for carrying little crafty projects like yarn + needles. It has a cover inside that can give nice privacy for whatever in there and the cover can also prevent it from getting dusty in a windy day. It is much sturdier and larger than the fabric basket, so if you found that your fabric basket was too small or too floppy as a gift bag, this might be a good alternative..?! As usual, I have tons of images to share each step with you, so bare with me! There you go!!

If you're unsure of your sewing skills try finding a design with straight lines i.e. a cross or monogram of your initial. Fresh Off the Bolt: The Bella Dress: Free PDF Pattern and Tutorial Yeppers- I actually finished cleaning up my Bella dress pattern last night so that I could share it with you today! I originally hand-drafted the pattern when I first made it but I would've been too embarrassed to share that ugly mess with you so I worked for a few hours on Illustrator to get it all prettified for all you sewing enthusiasts! This is my first pattern I'm offering for free and it's made to my daughter's specific measurements. She's a small 4T with a 19" waist.
ikat sac: faire un sac: Epilogue Last chapter in the epic Make A Bag series! And by "epic", I don't mean "longer than is sane", although that may be true, too. I mean "extolling her heroic attempts to write posts about fabric sacks while the rest of the house fell apart around her and everyone ate takeout pizza and oh, while she was also packing the entire family's summer wardrobe and enough gifts for half the civilized world in preparation for her trip to Singapore to see family, where she's now been soaking up the sun for the past 8 days already but nobody knew because she didn't even have the time to blog about it." Yep - epic. So... let's finish off with some questions that I think you might have.
