Cosmetic Pouch- DIY crochet & sewing

I made this crochet after seeing Martha Stewart project, crocheting pencil case… I have done sewing pencil cases but never with crochet, so I like this idea very much., only this time I made it for cosmetic pouch. The inspiration for the houses applique is from the oldtown Tallin, Estonia, I visited last september… Such a charming historical site. I also added the picture of the oldtown below, so let me know what do you think … Can you see the houses there in my applique? 🙂

Hope this brings you inspiration too !

Peach Tulle Dress

The 2 last months of the year is the best time for nice party dress, there are many occasions where one can wear pretty dresses… Start with thanksgiving, then christmas, and new year. This also is the best time for making tulle dress for my little one. First time sewing tulle dress, it actually is not as hard as I thought.. Don’t let the texture and the look of it intimidating you, it is manageable.

Believe it or not, I only spent less than 5 bucks for this dress and still got plenty fabric left. I name this dress Peach Tulle Dress, my little one wear it on thanksgiving day. It’s big enough to fit her until next summer I think 🙂

Hope it inspires you! Happy thanksgiving!

Winter Fox Corduroy Dress

I don’t usually find cute corduroy fabric in store, there are many options in online but not in store. This one is an exception, I got it from JoAnn and it’s on half price. Such a cute and perfect fabric for winter outfit.

It’s been couple months since my last dress project, my little one has been growing a lot, most of her summer dresses are too tight to fit her even for the next spring… and they also are not suitable for this weather now. So bigger and thicker dress is what she need. I adjusted the pattern to be able to fit her hopefully until next fall, it does look too big on her now especially around the armpit and waist… well too big is better than too small. I was also planning to add sleeves but then I thought sleeveless will be more versatile… she can still wear it with cardigan or sweater during the cold weater(without adding bulkiness to the arm areas) and the dress might works well during some breezy summer day.

So here it is the winter fox corduroy dress. Hope it inspires you!
