I saw this tutorial at Craft Passion the other day and fell in love with the bag she made. So I decided to try making one myself and I made this today. ๐Ÿ˜€

I didn’t have a pattern but saw the pieces she had done up and I drew my own. As usual, I’m not good with measurements so I estimated everything. ๐Ÿ˜›

I think the clutch bag turned out ok but measurements can be improved. ๐Ÿ˜› I think I’ll try it again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lacey Tote Bag March 20, 2010

What’s new? I got a new bag again. I think this is gonna happen pretty often. ๐Ÿ˜›

made from new fabrics this time. ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought the lovely brown lacey/crochet like fabric and some light slate blue linen and decided that they will be nice for a tote bag. ๐Ÿ˜€ I drew the body pattern free hand and improvised as I went along .. boed the bottom corners and added pleats only later when I realised the bag was kinda flat. ๐Ÿ˜› lol.

I made a fabric flower to add on because I thought the bag itself was a little plain.

How do you like it? let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

As I was surfing fashion blogs last week or so, I came across a picture of the Lanvin Aumoniere Satin Pochette.

and I immediately fell in love with it. :P:P:P

Since it’s just a drawstring pouch, I figured that the design wouldn’t be too difficult to try and sew. So I went and bought 2 metres of black satin and last night, I attempted to make this pouch.

and ….


i’ll show you ….

see how my pouch resembles more of a bento box wrap instead LOL

The pouch I made was simply too small ……. too shallow …. and the ruffles at the top …. simply not enough. sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. If there’s anything I’m really bad at, it will be the visual perception; in terms of size, volume, length, depth, etc etc etc. I got pretty lousy scores in my visual perception test in psych class in college ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh well. I will try again until I succeed! Until then … I think I will use a cheaper cloth to experiment my pattern before sewing the real thing first. ๐Ÿ˜›
