Another Reversible Wristlet Clutch

I made another reversible wristlet clutch but this time I made some changes. Instead of sewing 2 different wristlet snaps, I just made one and added a swivel clasp hook on it. So, I can unhook it when I reverse the clutch. I also added a padding at the bottom and boxed the bottom corner of the clutch.

Felt MP3 Player cover

My daughter just got her school report and her grades are so good. She's able to maintain her previous scores. I'm so proud of her and good scores deserve good gift. So, since she likes listening to music, I bought her an MP3 player. To complete her gift, I thought I should also make a cover for her MP3 player. I've never made an MP3 player cover before so I tried googling for a tutorial but I couldn't find anything that I wanted. I have no idea what I was going to make, I just kept cutting and as usual, adding some details here and there in the middle of process.

This MP3 player cover is hand sewn and made of felt.

Reversible Wristlet Clutch

After seeing so many cute clutches, I've been dying to make one. So, after so many blogwalking, I finally found this 'sew a simple foldover clutch' tutorial and also a 'How to make an easy clutch'  video tutorial. The instruction they gave are really easy to follow and you can make it in a hour by using a sewing machine. FYI : I still don't have a sewing machine yet.  So, it took a whole day for me to finish it. Hand sewing is very time consuming.

And I did it! I made a clutch and this clutch is reversible. So, if I get bored with one side, I could flip over the clutch. Hey, a woman always needs more than one clutch, right?

So, here's mine ...

Reversible clutch.

Oh, wait. It's not mine anymore. Because after I finished sewing it, my daughter took it. Well, I guess I have to make another one then.

Happy sewing!

Barbie Dress

Since I was into sewing, my final goal is to make clothes especially clothes for my own children. And before I'm ready to buy a sewing machine, I thought it would be best if I learn sewing by hand first before moving to the next step. A few weeks ago when I was blog-walking, I found this Barbie dress tutorial. And I thought to myself, "oh my God, that is what I need. I should try to make those. Those look easy". And then I immediately grab my needle, thread and felt and start making one. After making one felt dress, I got obsessed and wanted to make another one. And for the second time. I try to combine felt and cotton fabric. And here's what they look like.
