Chiquito Bag

Ahh! the Chiquito Bag!

The Chiquito Bag is my first published Pdf pattern, and I already owe it so much. I’ll just let my clients talk about it themselves:

Loved it! Fun sewing, cute pattern and great instructions. I had a question about the zipper insertion and they responded super quickly on instagram with how to do it. I added a lining so that the ironed on interfacing wouldn’t be visible and it was also very easy. Going to make another one for my mom and then ill insert the zip the right way!!

(sort of ) How to make a knitted/crocheted Tote Bag

So I finally finished this cutie. I say finally because this little nut was tough to crack. I actually didn’t do a tutorial for you because it was me who needed some help. I’m a self-taught seamstress, knitter and crocheter. Therefore, I’m always learning new stuff too. So when I need help, I look for it. Today, instead of giving you a step by step guide, I’m going to narrate the process of making this crocheted Tote Bag. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Although, like I said, it wasn’t easy to assemble this knitted/crocheted tote bag, knitting the pieces that compose it was a little walk in the park (I really love knitting) ー Finishing details were the hard tasks. But hey, let’s do this!

How to make your summer sandals (video)

I’ve been planning to make this project for a while now. To tell you the truth, I postponed it a long time. I think I was afraid I had idealized too much (I think I’ve said this before) , as if I made it, it might not be as good as I thought it would. Well, I was wrong.

I think my #memade summer sandals look fantastic and I also think they look super sexy ー when it comes to shoes, for me, the “sexy” adjective should always be applicable
