Summer Concert Tee – Pattern Parcel #1

Summer Concert Tee – Pattern Parcel #1

It is already March but why is it still soooo cold here in Tokyo? I just can’t wait for the warmer weather to arrive so I can wear other things than coat! Here is a tee that I made for the hopefully warmer weather next week. The pattern is Summer Concert Tee by Dixie DIY. TheContinue Reading →

Boy’s cape

Boy’s cape

When Sidra was still in kindergarten, I made him  a cute wool cape with faux fur lining for winter. He was very happy wearing it and enjoyed running around pretending he was a super-something. As years went by, he has outgrown the cape and it found a new owner (that might have outgrown the cape by now).Continue Reading →

Boy tee and dog hoodie

Boy tee and dog hoodie

So I found this long sleeved t-shirt with rather ridiculous cowl neckline in the men’s section of a thrift shop. My first thought was: wow, look at all those fabric! The color is actually light grey with black printed pattern, it is rather thick jersey in good quality. I bought the item for about USD5.Continue Reading →

My second Named Clothing pattern! This one is called Laurie striped tee. Here’s the description from the website: “A classic T-shirt with wide horizontal pleats on front that create a striped effect. A loose-fitting and casual model with short sleeves. Choose and elastic tricot, preferably quite thin. A slightly translucent fabric will make the stripedContinue Reading →

Sleeveles T-shirts

Sleeveles T-shirts

  Next for KCWC 2012, four sleeveless T-shirts for Sidra! I bought most of Sidra’s t-shirts from Threadless, unfortunately they don’t have sleeveless ones for kids. As the weather is getting warmer, Sidra has started wearing sleeveless so I made these. They are recycled from adult-sized T-shirts that I got from the thrift store. TheContinue Reading →

Camouflage print T-shirt

Camouflage print T-shirt

Another T-shirt for Sidra, made with cotton knit in muted camouflage pattern. I don’t really like camouflage print, but Sidra asked me to make something for him in this print. I found this fabric in Yuzawaya, Shunjuku. The camouflage print is a bit desaturated, which makes it not as harsh as the original camouflage and actually I kindaContinue Reading →

KCWC 2011: Red jacket and silver T-shirt

More KCWC 2011 projects! This red jacket is made with parachute fabric and black jersey. I found the parachute in the tiny fabric store near my house, it was very cheap and I still got more than 1 m left. The black jersey is recycled from adult T-shirt. The pattern is called Nectarine, bought as PDFContinue Reading →

Pointed hood tutorial

Pointed hood tutorial

These hoodies were inspired by a children book, みんなのこびと (cub label) (Minna no Kobito) by Toshitaka Nabata, or loosely translated as ‘Everyone’s Kobito’. I made them for the Once Upon a Thread event at No Big Dill. Check out my story and pictures over there! The fabric is cotton knit, very soft and comfortable. TheContinue Reading →

More tees!

More tees!

I’m not feeling well lately, headache, coughs, runny nose, etc. I guess the transitional period between summer to autumn is not doing good to my body. To make myself feel better, I sew several things for Sidra. I made these two shirts yesterday. The beige one is using leftover fabric from my husband’s shirt. I’ve washedContinue Reading →

Recycled check T-shirt

Recycled check T-shirt

Still no dino plushies. It was raining the whole day yesterday so I stayed at home and made something else for Sidra. The T-shirt is recycled from my old T-shirt dress, bought in 2006 in Indonesia. My hair was pretty short at the time! The picture was taken in my office’s studio, hence the blackContinue Reading →

White and purple shirt

White and purple shirt

I was making a dinosaur plush toy yesterday and just one step away from finishing it, all I need was just some stuffing and a pair of black beads for the eyes. As I didn’t want to go too far to buy supplies, I headed to a thrift store nearby. I was planning to findContinue Reading →
