Little boxy pouch tutorial « three bears My latest favourite thing to make, little boxy pouches. It took me almost an entire morning, lots of paper and sellotape and countless cups of tea to figure this out. I’m here to save you the bother. This little bag is 4.5 inches long, 3 inches high and 2 inches deep, just right for a lipstick and a compact (or better still, lots of sweets). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. I hope these instructions are clear. Do let me know if you use this tutorial, I’d love to see how it works out for you. ***How I add lining*** There may be a quicker way but this is how I add a lining. Like this: Like Loading...

Petite robe rouge Tutoriel Infinity | Coudre comme ma mère February 14, 2011 I’m always searching for a beautiful, well-fitting, versatile dress, and I finally found it. In fact, I MADE it. I made my infinity dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I found these infinity dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself. Next, cut a waistband 10″ tall and the length of your waist you measured. Next you’ll have to cut your straps. Get your straps.

Affichage Bijoux bricolage avec Lulu Frost - Honnêtement WTF Yesterday, I stopped by the Lulu Frost studio for an exciting DIY session with the lovely Lisa Salzer and her crafty team. We had been chatting for weeks about finding creative ways to display and store jewelry – a problem we all seemed to struggle with. So after sorting through Lisa’s wide ranging collection of antique hardware, we were inspired to find a way to show off not only her found treasures but also our favorite Lulu Frost jewels. You’ll need: Start by taking a sheet of wood to a lumber yard or hardware store to have cut to fit the inside of the picture frame. Make sure that the wood isn’t thicker than the inside molding. An optional step is to stain the wood to give it an aged look. Screw a metal brace, connecting the wood board to the back of the frame, to the middle of each of the 4 sides. Use a screwdriver or drill to secure all the hardware. For knobs that have bolts, drill a hole into the wood. Tighten from the back with a nut. Continue adding hardware!

snow white costume Use a long stitch and gather the top of the skirt With right sides together sew top to skirt Puffed sleeve: Finish off the sleeves with narrow white cuffs. You are ready to go walking in the forest. As we walked through the forest, we met this little guy. Eleanor Rigby Top Before Abbey was an Abbey she nearly became an Eleanor. You see we like the Beatles... (ok we love the Beatles) We wanted to give our kids names that meant something to us, so we choose Beatles names. We didn't discover the gender of our little miss until she was securely in our arms so we went to the hospital with a list a boy and girl names figuring we would decide which fit when we saw her face. She was almost an Eleanor. It's ironic actually because our little Abbey is the shyest little gal I know, so maybe Eleanor Rigby would have suited her just fine. I added pockets to a relatively simple top so she could store her treasures and it added a little detail. It also takes advantage of some smocking from the lesson earlier this week. So shall we get started? Ok so let's get down to it. Then smock the top. Now for the petal sleeve. Next for the back facing. Ok now for the sewing... before we start I changed the neckline when I was done, since I decided I didn't like it when it was on.

Tinker Bell Costume Halloween is fast approaching…..and I needed to hurry and create something sweet for my little kiddos. I have been looking forward to costumes, candy, imagination, and excitement since last year. And of course, I wanted my little munchkins to match…..well, sort of. Just fit together somehow. Today I’ll show you Tink….and tomorrow, Peter. (I figured this was an easy outfit to throw on a long-sleeved white shirt underneath……and cozy white tights. And even if you already have a costume for this year…….consider creating one of these for your dress-up box. Oooh, I can’t wait until next week. How to make Tinkerbell? First, start with the bodice. Then cut out your front and back pieces out of something stretchy. Then turn under the raw edges of the leg holes…..using a zig-zag stitch to allow for stretch. Then turn under the arm sections, and the top front and top back sections. Now, you’re going to create 2 flutter sleeves. Then cut out some of your same material for your skirt.

The Pear Picking Tunic One of the perks of our backyard are the great fruit trees we inherited. Apricot, Cherry, Apple, and Pear. My kids love snacking on the fresh fruit (so do the dogs) It is our favorite time of year right now, pear picking time! So awhile back I made a top when I was playing around with shirring, remember how I just got over the fear of shirring? Well, I made a top, and then it sat for while until I finally got around to taking pictures of it. I figured what better time than for a little pear picking in the backyard? The plaid screams fall to me which is just around the corner (even though our days are still in the 90's I know cooler weather is coming) The neck was a little larger than I had intended, but it still looks cute, all nice and ruffled. While this could totally be a dress, my non-dress girl likes to wear pants, which makes it a cute tunic that she will get lots of wear out of as she grows a bit. Then with right sides together sew the sleeves to the bodice.

Rooibos on friday (3 – the end) « My Daruma Vendredi, 22h, après une bien longue journée : c’était moins une pour le billet du vendredi…! La robe est terminée et j’en suis très contente. Monsieur Daruma me trouve un petit air secrétaire sage des années 60 qui n’est pas pour lui déplaire. Moi je dirais plutôt année 50 mais passons, voulez-vous, sur les subtilités stylistique du vintage. Côté couture, pas de problème particulier pour ce modèle Rooibos que j’ai trouvé plutôt plus facile que la robe Macaron du printemps dernier. Je suis très très fière de mes poches (les toutes premières en 4 ans de couture!) Merci à Sarai Mitnick pour ce très très joli patron. Friday, 10 PM. The dress is finished and i am so pleased with it! The sewing went really well. I’m very proud of the pockets (my first ever in 4 years of sewing!) Thumbs up to Sarai Mitnick for this beautiful pattern!! Like this: Like Loading...

Fabric Storage Boxes (per your request Okay, the fabric storage box tutorial is here. (Sorry for the little tease last friday and no actual tutorial. We were trying to get on the road for our trip to ID… things got crazy last week. I’m guessing there are probably 100 different ways to make fabric boxes though. (And last year, I even made storage boxes out of cardboard here, if interested.) So for today’s fabric boxes, I kept things moderately simple……and not too costly. Anyway, maybe some of you have made fabric storage boxes before……..but here’s my version. (And yeah, I’ll be making a few more. The boxes have side handles…….and a front window to slide in a content label. So what kind of stuff do you need organized? But what’s keeping those bins nice and upright? So make some for the kids room, for your craft room, for the storage shelves in your den, up in that one empty spot on the book shelf……..or even to throw in the car between the bucket seats. Anyway, would you like to make some for yourself? See? And that’s it.
