My very first hat!

I'm currently posting a tutorial to Crafster, but the hat is quite easy, except my sewing machine hates me and likes me to rethread it a million times. I made this hat without a pattern, I used the brim from another hat as a guideline and put cardboard in it. Enjoy and click for a Flickr view!

Pow! Scoodie Recon

I made this scoodie, coz its getting cold out and sometimes the shirt I want to wear isn't a hoodie, out of a t-shirt and cut up an old hoodie to use for the scarf part. I didn't break any needles *knock on wood* and its a bit dirty in the pics, but I'll throw it in the washer and dryer and it should be good as new! Click the pics for the Flickr view.

Che Scoodie with a few miscalculations, oops

I wanted to make a scoodie (scarf/hoodie mix) and got around to it today, but I didn't measure a seam so its kind of small. I made it out of a Che flag and cut out random parts and sewed them together. Enjoy, and click for a Flickr view!

I admit, it does look more like a Hallowe'en costume than anything!

Cherry hip hugger bag!

I saw a cute bag that was like this at The Faerie's Pajama's in Toronto ON. I thought I'd make a simpler version, to use at places like amusement parks, or if I just want a small bag to carry around. After much fussing with my sewing machine (it didn't like the velco!) I present to you, my cherry and star hip hugger bag, and no, its NOT a fanny pack, its much cuter! Click for the Flickr view.

My first time using a sewing machine!

I'll admit, its a bit sloppy in places and I wouldn't put 100lbs into this bag, but it is pretty cute looking. I got the fabric at FabricLand with my mom. I made it without any pattern and my mom showed me how to iron it and make a flat bottom. I have my own sewing machine now (it used to be my grandmas) and I'm learning how to use.. and troubleshoot it! Enjoy. I think the bags cute. :) I put all of my new fabric in it.
