I don't have a sewing machine, so it is all hand sewen, fine for some things, but larger projects I will have to use my moms (at least I can see if I'm any good with them before I buy one...I've done odd projects and textiles at school...need to get back into it.)
I made various items and I have plans for more but here is my latest project from vintage tolie fabric:
I measured the fabric and cut some lining and wadding to pad it.
I folded over the vintage fabric edges and tacked down to avoid fraying.
I then attached the outer fabric, lining and wadding- inside out, hand sewn together, I then turned out the fabrics and sewed along the top (think I just need to iron it a little at the top.)
I have some of this fabric left and some other french vintage fabric, thinking to make some purses (similar to this) and some mini purses for my shop- what do you think? What do I need to improve? (I know there's something.)
Another project I have done is egg cosy again with vintage fabric- looks good with the vintage accessories - will be listed soon.
Any avid sewers out there...tips/advice/comments always welcome!
