Nom Nom Lunch Bag

Though I often thought about sewing a proper lunch bag for my husband, I’d ended up sewing something else. It usually because I didn’t have the right fabric, what I mean by the right fabric is I need the fabric that is thick, with darker shade, and not to girly. Last week I went through my fabric stash and was drawn by this fabric…finally I found the right one, why didn’t I think about it before?? It’s left over fabric I used in wall decor, I bought it from IKEA couple years ago… almost forgot that I still had some left, just enough for the lunch bag.

After finding the right fabric, I was thinking about making a thorough sewing tutorial for this project, but I should’ve known that I shouldn’t be too optimistic about it when your 2T was teething and very demanding. I was lucky enough to be able to get two pictures which I don’t even consider them as tutorial picture 😦

Anyway, I hope this Nom Nom lunch Bag inspires you!

Since I didn’t have fusible interfacing, I sewn the medium interfacing I had to the main fabric in parallel lines.

Whales Dress with Collar

Does any of you notice that prior to this I’d never made my little one dress with collar? It’s because I didn’t know how to make it 🙂

Before I went back to Indonesia early of this year, I kept telling myself to not to forget to learn how to sew collar from my mom, particularly how to draw collar pattern. With all the hectic schedules and events, I eventually, in the last day during my stay,  got to learn how to make the pattern which actually only took about 5 minutes, not as complicated as I thought.

So here it is, my first dress with collar.
