I promised you some catch up posts. Here is one of them. This time I am going to show you some little sewing projects I did not long ago.
I love reading La Maison Victor, it is a sewing magazine that gets published in Dutch. Their website is here! Even if you don't understand Dutch, you might find it enjoyable to look at their colourful and inspiring projects on their website.
They also publish the odd little book and recently I bought this one from them:
22 Easy sewing projects book.
It has a lot of small cute projects! Upon first glance there were two of them that I knew immediately that I wanted to make them.
This is the first one, a little Plushy Cat as a keyring.
|My finished Cat Keyring from La Maison Victor - Ta-Dah!!!|
Here is how I made it:
|Book diagram and cutting out fabric|
|Handstitching the eyes|
|Using real wool felt|
|Sewing the body|
|I didn't add a pompom nose but decided to add a tail|
|Here is my finished Cat Plushy Keyring compared to the book|
And here is my next project : A bird plushy made as a brooch.
The book showed these birds as a mobile. I thought they were so cute with the handstitched eyes and I wanted to wear one! I added one of my handmade flowers as an embellishment! The fabric is from Veritas.
And last, not least, here are two little jewellery bags I whipped up on Tuesday afternoon before going to my last Dutch lesson in the evening. These were given as gifts to my lovely Teachers!
I took 2 fabric rectangles, sewed a hollow seam for the drawstrings, then sewed them together as little bags. I added crochet cotton for the drawstrings in 2 contrasting colours.
The necklaces inside were also part of the gifts!
I enjoyed making these little projects. Do you have a favourite quick sewing project?
Feel free to leave me your comment, it thrills me to read them!
Have a creative weekend! Here the sun is shining and I will be going to a sewing workshop later at the Kringwinkel (charity shop) where they want to show how to upcycle clothes! Can't wait!
