Bags of Star Wars!

Gosh, did I have fun this week with my Star Wars fabric quarters.  I had been keeping them for a while as I was undecided what to make with them.  Any fabric like this normally gets turned into a PE/kit bag!

Then last week I decided upon turning them into carrier bag holders (so useful in storing plastic bags from the supermarket). Plus storing your plastic bags in this way is much neater and organised than shoving them in a kitchen drawer, like I used to do!

I have made countless of these bag holders and they have always sold out on my Etsy shop.  It’s a great opportunity to be creative with your pattern and fabrics and to also add touches like fun ribbons etc.  Plus, of course, the bag holders are also very practical indeed.

I had three different types of Star Wars fabric quarters so I decided to make three different bags.  All individual and striking in their own way.

All are available to buy on my Etsy shop (see link above).  I can also custom make bag holders of your choice.  Just message me on Etsy.

Thanks for reading!

The Cambie Dress

IMG_0306

I loved the look of this dress. It was inspired from the movie “La La Land” with Emma Stones’s gorgeous yellow dress.  I had never previously followed a Sewaholic pattern and did some research before purchasing.  There were lots of positive reviews and a step by step guide on the Sewaholic website which is a great thing to have if you are a bit unsure during the making up stages. http://sewaholic.net/

The pattern and instructions were easy to follow.  I did a mock up first as I am fairly large chested and always generally have to alter bodice measurements to suit my frame.  I am usually a size 8-10 so plumped for the size 10 to be on the safe side.

The dress is fully lined and actually the finished result looks more difficult than it really was!  Although I think that next time I may not line the skirt and only line the bodice.  The only alteration I had to make was ironically to take in the bodice slightly to achieve a more fitted effect!  I think next time I might even downsize and opt for a size 8!

The only problem I have now is deciding on which material and pattern fabric to purchase for my next Cambie dress!

Thank you Sewaholic.  I will definitely be making more of your creations in the near future!
