A tote bag from used flour bag

I only brought two suitcases when I moved to Japan, and one of few things that I brought here was a used flour bag. Beats me. Now the time has come to transform this used flour bag to a tote bag for my husband, because he loves carrying tote bags. I simply drew the pattern on the cloth, cut it up, and sew it together.

Summer dress

After I got my Janome sewing machine, I got this huge craving for sewing stuffs. But I didn’t have enough time to go to Yuzawaya to browse on some fabrics. So I took a look around the house and saw that red fabric hanging on the wall. It was cotton, so it would be perfect for a summer dress.

It’s a very simple dress, with wide neck opening and loose fitting, eliminating the need for buttons or zipper that I didn’t have anyway.I added two pockets on the side-seams because I just love dresses with side-seam pockets. The raw edges are finished with zigzag stitches.

The dress turned out cute, almost nightgown-like, which I really like.

Working time: exactly 4 hours, from 11am – 3pm. This is a targeted time because I had to start after I clean the house and finished everything before Sidra got home by 3.10. I can’t do sewing when he’s around because he’ll get very interested and then wants to try.

Pattern is from Lisette リネンの服作り
