I'm in california now, and I have vacation for a little while before intern year starts. I stay home during the day, and I've been working on learning how to sew. I wanted to share some pictures of the sewing projects that I've completed over the past week!
I started with some more strawberry bags. I followed the tutorial from http://www.ikatbag.com/2010/04/strawberry-bag.html
And I made a pillowcase with a pocket for my sleeping mask. I like the textured fabric, but it was hard for my sewing machine to work with.
Then I got real fancy and started making skirts! This is a reversible skirt with foldover waistband and an inseam pocket at the waistband on each reversible side, so total of 2 pockets. One side has a striped pattern and the other side is floral. The material is a cotton jersey knit.
This is my second reversible skirt, also cotton jersey knit fabric. I left the hem open, so it looks like a 2 tiered skirt on the gray side. I repeated the foldover waistband in this skirt. I added two inseam pockets on both of the reversible sides, and put the pockets on the sides of the skirt instead of at the waistband, so 4 pockets total.
This is my first pajama pant. I used a soft fleecy fabric and used an existing pajama pant as a template. I used extra material from my gray skirt for the waistband, since it was stretchy, so I did not need to use an elastic for the waistband. This also has 2 inseam pockets.
I also made Milo some clothes! He has a red sequin shirt and a black and red striped shirt (same material as my skirt, so we can be matchy matchy!). These shirts use velcro closure. I'm going to make him a tiger shirt next, haha.
Hope you like these projects! It was a lot of fun!
