Handmade Monday 123

I have finally got a working sewing machine, after a few weeks of it being serviced, it’s now good as new! I had accumulated a list of things I wanted to make, so this weekend, with hubby away, was the perfect chance.

I needed to make some stock for Chouxchouxbedoo. I had already dropped off some teacup candles to the shop earlier in the week


I wanted to make some makeup bags with a pretty lace zip.


After a bit of fiddling around I came up with the pattern and method, they’ll be a tutorial coming soon!


I had seen a simple dress pattern in Sewing World magazine. It’s made using 4 same sized rectangles, using a really easy method to make it. I had some lovely fabric I had acquired from The Make and Do Studio that was just the right size.


I still need to make some adjustments as the neckline is a bit too high for my liking, but think it looks quite elegant!

Over now to handmade Harbour to browse all the other blog posts for handmade Monday.

  1. Your make up bags look lovely! I like the dress – it’s hard to see how it is made from rectangles! My mind is trying to puzzle it out and failing!

  2. I am amazed at how much you managed to get done in a weekend. I really like the pretty lace zip – a great idea. Glad that you have your machine back – seems as if you have missed it.

  3. You have got a lot done, the make up cases especially are lovely. I’m not a make up girl myself but I#m sure I could find a use for them!
