The sewing calendar 2010 project

Tutorial by Liesl Couthard

This is the last  project of my sewing marathon ! Actually, I did this one before the brooch … but anyway, this is almost the last project of March 2010. I already did 1/4 of the  calendar !!!

I don’ t use shower caps, I don’ t find shower caps attractive or useful. As you probably guessed, I was not excited about this project. I chose the cheesiest fabric I had, and some lining that I usually use for wet bags fr my son’s diapers : I know it won’t leak ! Anyway, I didn’ t put too much effort in this project but the result came out great !

My son loves it and plays with it. I may try it once just to see how it feels, but don’ t expect me to take a picture  of the cap on my head 😉

I just have for now the picture of the preparation step. I will come back with the result one later this week.

Here is the picture of the preparation :


I’m done for today, I hope you enjoyed the last few posts !

I was excited about this project ! I chose the same fabric than my bumper for my sewing desk : I want to use the basket to keep my desk empty. Just by looking at the picture, I was expecting a bigger basket, so I’m a little disappointed by the size, but the result still looks great !

The tutorial is well explained. I did a mistake though : don’ t sew the corner with the square shape !!

And now the pictures :

I have to admit that the picture doesn’ t look good … I will try to take a better one soon …

I imagined this project to be super fast and easy … I went to Walmart today and go some ric rac ribbon. I planed to spend about 30 minutes on it but surprisingly I needed way more time ! It requires patience 😉

I didn’t use a button or a pompom in the middle : I didn’t have anything that would  have matched. The result looks pretty nice ! I just need a pin so I can wear it !

Do you remember the Matyroshka doll ? Well, I didn’ t improve myself …

I really tried to make it work but I think it’ s too small for me .. So next time that a project like this one shows up in the calendar, I will double the proportions so it doesn’t turn out to be a disaster.

Well, the pictures …

Preparation :


And the (crap) result … I added a little mice  or whatever it is so at least something looks OK in the picture 😉

I’m late for this project : my son was sick and I didn’thave time to work on it earlier. My son is actually still sick, so I had to take a day off from work. I did this project during his nap and I did it for him !

I was not as careful as Sarah was: I didn’t sew the ribbons first. I just pined them on the first fabric, put the second one on top and sewed everything together, on the wrong side. I just left an opening, returned to the right side and removed the pins. Finally, I seamed all over again and that’s it !

Here are the pictures :

What do you think? The pattern will match the stuffed animal (elephant) I did for my baby a few months ago 😉

I’m very busy at work right now so this was the perfect project : three minutes total … I have a witness, who even accepted to be my model to present the result of this project!

So, without any more comment (what else to say?)

, the pictures !

Here is another project ! Quick, simple and nice result ! I didn’t need any invitation but I found a way to transform the project into something working for me 😉 I changed my mind between the beginning of the process and the final result …

Picture of the preparation :


And here here the result, with a totally different pattern :

the result !

it was a nice experience, however, I’m not sure I would create sewn invitations for a wedding : it would probably take too much time …. I mean, I did some custom invitations for my wedding, it took me forever …

By the way, I love the website : lots of nice ideas !
