I’ve been doing alot of sewing this weekend, in preparation for my daughter’s birthday party next weekend. I had a lot of IKEA fabric leftover from my fabric stash. Bright colorful animal print that I really wouldn’t use in the house, so I used it to make goody bags! I found a site with free patterns for bags, pouches, tissue pouch, school totes. What I really like about her projects is that she uses the nicest fabrics. And the finished product is photographed so beautifully.
The navigation is a little tricky though, there seems to be two different sections
The first is called free sewing recipes and it includes some tutorials on basic techniques http://nunotoiro.web.fc2.com/tutorial.html
And the second section is a Back to school sewing special – http://nunotoiro.web.fc2.com/kinchaku2.html
I love how clear the instructions are, and the photos are beautifully taken. For some of the patterns, she shows us how to vary the fabrics for different looks. And I love the fact she uses liberty fabrics! Very pretty!
Oh, and look out for a new feature on Japanese fabrics starting on Wednesday!
