(Old) Project: Cape

I made this cape for my daughter when she was about nine months old. It was a little too big for her then, but now it fits perfectly. She wore it this fourth of July to celebrate the fireworks (which she’s a little bit scared of).

It was actually a relatively easy project and I think I’m going to make her a few more for this winter. The outer is made of red fleece and the lining is a cotton strawberry shortcake that I dug out of my mom’s stash.

A clutch my mom made me.

Okay, I did not make this clutch (and sorry for the tiny picture too). My mom made it for me. It’s completely my style, and can I confess something? I love it more than the one I made. No new sewing this week, but I do have a little stash of fabric which I’m planning to turn into a new pair of ruffle pants, pajama pants, and a skirt for my little one. However, this weekend is for relaxing. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. 🙂


New Project: Bow Clutch

I finally finished my clutch! It’s made of a red linen with a cotton navy blue hounds tooth lining. There’s a few things I’m not happy about, such as the the bow which isn’t completely straight. I also had a hard time with the zipper, but overall I’m happy with the end product.

I wanted to enter the Sew Sweetness Purse Palooza 2012, but any bag that is entered needs to be made between June 4 and July 11. I started the bag back in May so I don’t think it qualifies. Too bad!

However, check out my mom’s purse that she entered. I think it turned out really cute.

Live. Laugh. Aloha.
