If taobao.com is in Canada, my wallet is going to be in trouble! While my mom was in China earlier this year, I was browsing taobao.com, and instantly fell in love with this fabric. I know it’s a little bit risky to buy fabric online without touching it, but I was willing to take that risk. These were a few of the seller’s pictures: the fabric supposed to be imported from UK, and it’s cotton/linen blend.

I’ve always wanted a faux fur vest top. When I saw this fabric at Fabricland, I know this is the one! It’s purplish gray, and super super soft. Ok, I first made the top without lining, and wore to office for one day. Then I decided I should’ve added the lining. So I ripped everything apart, and started over. From there, the process was a painful one! Continue reading “2015 Finished Handmade – 7”
USB Pocket v2
Remember this USB pocket v1? The fabric didn’t hold up that well, after one year of use, it’s now looking like this:
I made v2, this time with denim, doubled the capacity, and changed to zipper for more safety. I am loving it!
I have this thing for linen fabric, and made myself an apron using some leftover fabric from a top. I was surprised to find two pieces that have matching colors. Pattern was taken using my existing apron, noting fancy, but a very functional one. This is the original lovely striped linen fabric:
This is my almost-done apron, the front pocket fabric is also the same as the back of the apron, very earthy color, right?
以前一直觉得做包比做衣服简单，但是我其实从来没有成功过。 对于有表布和里布的东西, 我的大脑好像很难想像它们之间的关系是怎么缝制的。 呵呵。 不过这几个月终于有点进步了，当然也是因为有比较清晰的制作过程讲解。
很普通的化妆包，在网上找到这个非常简单明了的制作讲解。 才发现, 原来做包包可以完全不用锁边耶，因为所有的毛边都不会外露:
周末手提包，来自Cotton Friend, 现在周末出门都用这个了, 只放钱包和手机, 很轻便：
深蓝色棉麻布, 非常容易work with, 喜欢麻布的质感和手感. 第一次学会这种上腰的方法, 花了我好多时间研究杂志上的图解, 但是如果拿着布料摆弄比只是看图解要快很多, 没办法, 好像我的大脑没办法想象这样的3D效果. 还好, 总算没有烂尾. 日本杂志: Cotton Friend 2013春号 Vol.46, 51页第三款.
这个小上衣我已经做了N次. 因为喜欢这块布, 欧洲设计, 德国进口, 面料确实很舒服, 不过没有棉麻布那么好做, 胸前的两个折花了我好多时间, 因为布料总是滑来滑去的. 领圈做工有进步了! 嘻嘻…
