Sewing Away

Archive for October 2015

I wanted to put my love into my son’s backpack, not just grab one from the store shelf. After all he has started nursery school.

First time I used piping (also made by myself) and I lined it as well.

For a while I have not made anything for myself and I forgot have much fun that is. 🙂

I have wanted to have harem pants for a long time. I bought this fabric 2 years ago, I made a mattress cover of it, these pants and still enough for a dress or at least a shirt.

It has a really pretty bright pattern, unfortunately I could not make it symmetrical. Here is the pattern which worked great. I just put elastic to the waist and ankles and here you go.

   
    
 

I just want to share a clever idea from the internet. I bought a pair of shoes for my 2 years old. The one with the velcro was sold out in his size and anyway I like the style of the one with shoelaces better. 

But he is too small for tying his own laces and I would like him to be able to put on and off his shoes on his own. (It is not happening yet, but I think soon enough.) So I knew I would have to alter them somehow and internet as most of the time helped me out. Just put an elastic band instead of the laces.

I chose one with a popping color. At the end I decided that the knot should be in front of the tongue, not the bother the little feet. Also put some washi tape at the ends to stop fraying.

Aren’t they cute?
