2015 Finished Handmade – 3

USB Pocket v2
Remember this USB pocket v1? The fabric didn’t hold up that well, after one year of use, it’s now looking like this:

I made v2, this time with denim, doubled the capacity, and changed to zipper for more safety. I am loving it!

Earthy Apron
I have this thing for linen fabric, and made myself an apron using some leftover fabric from a top. I was surprised to find two pieces that have matching colors. Pattern was taken using my existing apron, noting fancy, but a very functional one. This is the original lovely striped linen fabric:

This is my almost-done apron, the front pocket fabric is also the same as the back of the apron, very earthy color, right?

I finally finished this shawl, took me about 2 month. I knit slow, right?
The shawl is relatively easy, no fancy stitches, just knit and purl, and I was amazed by the architecture and texture it can achieve. Now waiting for spring!

2014年手工小物 – 2

以前一直觉得做包比做衣服简单,但是我其实从来没有成功过。 对于有表布和里布的东西, 我的大脑好像很难想像它们之间的关系是怎么缝制的。 呵呵。 不过这几个月终于有点进步了,当然也是因为有比较清晰的制作过程讲解。

很普通的化妆包,在网上找到这个非常简单明了的制作讲解。 才发现, 原来做包包可以完全不用锁边耶,因为所有的毛边都不会外露:

周末手提包,来自Cotton Friend, 现在周末出门都用这个了, 只放钱包和手机, 很轻便:

口金包
包身完成好久了, 尝试了几次, 都没能成功把口金缝上去. 这周末一鼓作气, 也不管外观好看不好看, 不能再这样烂尾下去了, 终于完成了. 比想象中要好, 但是只用两股线可能不够牢, 先用用吧. 布料是在etsy上买的日本布料的边脚料, 颜色和图案都很rich,很喜欢.

USB Pocket
男朋友的特别要求, 因为他的USB手指太多了, 想有个小布袋organize一下. 100%自己设计和制作, 不过在投入使用后, 可能还有改进的空间. 哈哈, let’s see….
