I made all this photos at the same sunny day, even if it may not look like it
Most of this photos are made only a few yards away from the apple tree😀
Here is the other side of fall where nature is dying or loosing its color.
WOW I didnt knew it has been this long time since my last post.:(
A wunderful summer with going to the beach, being lazy sometimes, hunting Pokemon and skipped my sewing lessons for more than 2 months is over.❤
Besides my vacation on the beach I didnt made lots of photos this summer.
But when the colors of the leaves started to change, the apples and grapes looked so delicious I had to take my camera to make photos.
I made a lot of photos this day. When checking them on my computer I saw that I could put them in 2 categories.
Part one very colorful with red, green, orange. Part two brown, grey.
Both categories are lovely. I for myself prefer the colorful part, but fall wont exist without the second part.
Just see for yourself🙂
One thing of summertime I love are the bushes and trees full of fruits.
It is also the time I eat a lot of fruits.Not because its healthy, but because I want to.
Saturday I went to a supermarket and came back with lots of fruits.
The colors, the smell of them – overwhelming❤
I couldnt resist to make photos😀
The cherries and strawberries were so good, have to get more because they are my favs😀
Since my first day at the sewing course I wanted an overlock maschine !
There are so many manufacturers for overlocks. I needed some time and experience with overlocks and read a lot about it to decide what make of overlock I want.
Then I had to wait. The overlocks I put on my wish list has been way to expensive.
Once or twice a month I searched for used overlocks with a price I’m willing to pay.
Last week I got lucky. I found one of the overlocks from my wish list. And the price was fine with me.
Here is my new “used” baby❤❤❤
I got so excited I ordered the same day I bought this overlock a lot of yarn hihi
Yes, there are a lot of colors, but I saw in the past with fabrics of every color you can see and will in the future. .
Here is my first sewing with my new baby
Here my new shirt. I love this pattern. Not sure how many shirts like this I had made so far. Maybe 10 or more😀
The smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the crying of the seagulls, the wind in my hair – nothing calms me down more then this.
When getting on a beach it is like coming home .❤
I hope this photos shows the happiness I feel when being there.
To see the photos in its original size just click on it🙂
The sand isnt this colorful – those are rests of broken seashells.
This photo is used with my theme🙂
I’m not a big fan of sunset photos but you can’t be at the beach not shooting them hihi
The next photos are made at various ports
I have no idea what these things are. But look at the amazing colors❤
I hope you liked to see my love for this places🙂
This bag tutorial I found on the internet here: Summer fling bag tutorial
I liked this bag very much because you can sew them with 2 different pattern.
2 of my colleagues had birthdays a few weeks ago.
Yes, I’m a little late.😦
First I had the flu and had to cancel my sewing course and second those bags needed way more time to sew then I expected.
To save time I made both bags together. Means if I sew the zipper in one bag, my next step has been the zipper to the second one.
Maybe I will sew this bag for me too🙂
Isnt the fabric amazing? Unfortunality I can’t sew a bag with the Splittie anymore because I used all fabric I had for this bag.
But hey, a gift is more valuable when you would like to keep it yourself hihi
I changed the pattern from the tutorial a little
The original bag is closed with a magnet. I added a zipper.
And here I made a mistake by sewing both bags at the same time and made my error twice.
The fabric stripe for the zipper is too wide. Half of it would have been better.
But I have been too far with sewing this bags and didnt wanted to change it not ones but twice.
Take a look
Here my next mistake.
The original bag has a wonderful inner pocket with another fabric than the lining.
IF I sew a bag for myself I will add the zipper as I did but will make it look like the original inner pocket from the tutorial.
When I saw the zipper for the inner pocket it was red on red.
Did you once needed something in your bag and couldnt find it because it has been to dark?
This is the reason I added a stripe next to my zipper. Its easier to find the zipper now.
I also added 2 slip pockets for a mobile or whatever it will be used to.
I took the lining fabric twice to make it more stable.
At the end not to forget to use my new “toy” on leather hihi
Lets hope both colleagues will like their bags🙂
blood, sweat, and glitter y'all
