A farewell gift

22 Mar

My post today is about a little gift I made for a friend who is leaving for a while.

My friend and Taiko teacher Tomoko is going back to Japan for 1 year, so I wanted to thank her for her kindness, patience and for all the time that she spent on teaching me.

I also selfishly made this so that when she looks at it she might remind of me too, and, by the way, little pouches are always useful! 😀

Thank you for all the happy hours Tomoko-sensei. Come back soon!

Marta’s starred bag

17 Aug

I didn’t produce much in this past few weeks but at least I made this tote-bag for my friend Paola‘s daughter Marta. Last week it was Marta’s 13th birthday and her mother told me that she needed a large bag so…. the obvious present. Since she is a Star, I decided to use a star printed fabric. This canvas is also waterproof, which is handy because, despite the light coulour, it is easy to clean.

As I had some fabric left I also made her a little matching pouch for her lipstick or make-up. 😉

The toothbrush pouch

6 Mar

Following this useful tutorial I made myself a brand new pouch for my toothbrush and toothpaste to keep in my drawer at work. The fabric is a remnant of my previous project while the zip is upcycled from an old bag.

I changed the measures to fit in the toothbrush and the result is definitely better than expected!

Boxy pouches for two

5 Mar

Last Sunday afternoon me and my friend Paola decided to give it a try to this lovely tutorial and make ourselves a boxy pouch each. We cut and misured and then I took out my faithfull sewing machine and made it!

Paola’s fabric (blue with white drops) was a bit lighter than mine (blue with white leaves), so the result is not just alike.

Despite, in the end we were both happy with the result, I decided make some small changes and unpicked the sides to add some flaps on both to make it easier to zip/unzip.  🙂
