Super thanks to everyone who wrote really sweet comments about my sewing in my last post! It made me realise that its been ages since i last did a sewing blog post. So here it is! ^^
Today, i am going to show you guys how i changed this old hoodie of mine into a tote bag
FYI i bought this hoodie in Taiwan years and years ago but i rarely wore it as i felt it was too warm for summer wear yet totally useless in winter since the sleeves were so short. it was no good for layering either as it was a very large hoodie. I thought abt adding long sleeves but oh in the end , i just outgrew the look XD
Use your drafting paper [or u can be cheap like me and use advertisement paper XD recycle!!] to trace the handles
Cut the same shapes out from black knit and line the handles. This part is kinda tricky and i still havent figured out a good way to do it. So you’ll have to do some trial and error experimentation here. If i figure out a good method, i will do another post on it or update this one!
I forgot to take photos but the last step is to sew a lining for the bag, add velcro closures/pocket on the inside..watever you like.
The end result
Hopefully this gives you an idea of how to go about doing it on your own ^^ I’m not very good at making sewing tutorials [which is why i rarely make them] I didnt learn how to sew so a lot of things i do in sewing are made up as i go XD
Any questions? Feel free to ask!! ^^
A few of you have been asking me how the home slippers i showed u guys a sneak peek of a while ago, turned out
Cant say i am 100% happy. The bottom is too filmsy and hurts when i walk too much in them on the hard floor. i think its ok if you are walking on plush carpet constantly but i am not.
Anyway last weekend, whilst in Jusco, i noticed these on sale
They are shoe inserts for those of us who wish to be a little taller XD They are meant for boots which explains why they were on sale [Boot wearing season aka winter is wayyy over now XD] Going to try to put these in the slippers and see how it goes. Will report back! ^^
Its 1st of June! Where did the last 5 months go!?
Hope you are keeping well
p.s i hate to have to say this but please dont ask me for sewing tutorials or patterns on things like brushrolls/pouches/whatever stuff i sell. To be honest, i find it kind of rude. Hope you can understand ^^;;
