Schnabelinas HipBag-Sew-Along Part I

On Schnabelinas website a new sew along is about to start. This time the sew along is about a hip bag. You can find the pattern here. Today it's only about cutting the pattern and thinking about the version I want to sew. There is also a version for kid's.

Summer Top

Today I sewed a summer top in less than half an hour. The pattern "Sunshine" is free and can be found here (link closed).

May the force be with you

For a little Jedi Knight I sewed a poncho for the beach or pool. A tutorial to make the pattern can be found on the website of  Fräulein Rosa. The pattern for the hood is taken from the hoddie called "Comet" provided by mialuna. I attached also a pocket and a Jedi patch on the pocket.

Sew Along Week Twelve

This week I sewed one of my favorite bags from the Taschenspieler 2 CD. The Miniorganizer.
I knew that this bag would be great for my daugther. I have taken funny turtle fabric for outside and inside I took green striped fabric. Outside I attached a pocket and a flap with zipper over it.
Inside I sewed a simple pocket on one side and a zipper pocket at the other side. Sadly this little bag is the last bag from Emma's sew along. Dear Emma, I hope you have much the same fun as me :o)

Sew Along Week Eleven

In this week of Emma's sew along I sewed the Krempeltasche. This bag can be folded into a zipper pocket on the front. I have taken purple lining fabric for the bag and for the zipper pocket and the patch on the other side I have taken red demin from a skirt. Sadly the demin is a little bit stretchy so the sewing was not so exactly. But at the end everything fits. The pattern of this huge bag is again taken from the CD Taschenspieler 2 from farbenmix.

Sew Along Week Ten

In week ten of Emma's sew along I sewed the Herrentasche The pattern is again taken from the CD Taschenspieler 2 from farbenmix.

I have taken black synthetic leather for the bag, the flap is made of a scrap of brown real leather. On the flap I attached an apple made of red synthetic leather. In and below the flap are some zipper pockets.
For the inside of the bag I have taken a man's shirt and also used the little pocket that already was on the shirt.
On the back I sewed an extra handle through all layers and added some rivets for more stability.
