Sewing week-end!

I've been sewing not like crazy but I may say it has been productive! I'll start with the new bag I made. I used old curtain (beige fabric) and fabric remnant. I'm quite happy with the big flower at the front... It gives the bag some caracter it was really lacking. The buttons at the back are different from the front because I only had 2 of them... What do you think of the final product?

I've been making more panties too! I really need some ;) I took these:

Cherries Cami and a baby blanket
And turn them into these:

I really squeeze 2 pairs for Camille in the cherry cami and had to use another t-shirt for the lining. I was able to make two pairs for me in the baby blanket too.. It's been a nice week-end even though I had to push myself for getting started...

First bag for sale!

Here's the first bag available for sale!!! ( I already sold 3 bags but didn't have time to post it before :) so it's the first one that I post and not sold yet...)
I made it out of linen blouse, men's shirt and it's lined with jeans.

Business Name!

I'm all happy I've found a name for my "business" (bags, cosmetic pouches, purses and the like).
I will call it " Cul de Sac" in english it means dead end but in french a bag is sac... It's kind of cute I think ;)

Here's the pencil case I made for my daughter who asked for a princess...


She's very happy with it!
I'm almost done with my circular shawl!! 2/3 of the bind off to go ;) Pics coming soon...

Pencil case for Julien!

So, what have I been up to???!! I did some stuff for a friend who asked for a knitting bag (Hi Suzanne!!) but you won't see picture of it... Don't want her to see her stuff before I give it to her ;)

To make you wait for these here's some pencil case I made for my son! He requested something mario bros related. I need to make one for my oldest too...

It took me 1h45 to embroidered but was worth it as my son is quite happy with it.

Made out of jeans and remnant of his room's curtain! I love this pattern and it's so easy to sew (about 20 min).

Still working on a circular shawl to go with my fabulous red shoes...
