Hi all! I am hoping to be doing more regular blogging in 2015 and was wondering what sorts of things you would like to see? Any weekly or monthly features that you think I should try?
I have been wanting to make some statement pieces that people can look at and say “That’s by LethargicLass”. Maybe not quite Chanel, but close :) I also wanted to make something that was 100% my own pattern, where I didn’t have to search to find if I had permission to sell, something that was mine.I also wanted something that had a little something extra. I decided on leather. I had never sewn with it before but decided it couldn’t be that hard… and I was right! I also have been collecting fabrics over the years knowing that one day they would become pouches, finally I am able to use them!These are extra large project bags. Perfect for bringing your EPP project to wine night at the friend’s house, or to bring your sketchbook to the coffee shop. They have an outside zip pocket, the main zipped interior, as well as a slip pocket on the inside. They are a generous 12” x 12” so can fit quite a bit!I find the leather adds structure while also making this a standout piece. I have six listed in my shop at this moment and plan to add some more in the next little while. Let me know what you think!
I have been sewing away lately even if I have been remiss about blogging about it. First up is a first time pattern from a blogger I admire very much, Svetlana of Sotak Handmade. I actually had the honour of sending to Svetlana for her very first Flickr swap a long time ago, the Pretty Little Pouch Swap. I remember wanting to make sure her first experience was fun and I hope I did that LOL!The pattern is the Two In One Pouch and you can read about it here. I highly recommend it! I added some inside slip pockets to mine.And one last gorgeous one made from my favourite fabric line, Hadley!
Yesterday I finished a new tunic top I had been wanting to make for awhile. It was my first time sewing with knits and it was a great experience, plus, I absolutely love the finished top! The pattern is The Laurel Dress/Tunic by Green Style Creations. Hope you enjoyed seeing my projects!
