Beautiful job on your sewing projects! They are all wonderful! I can make quilts but can't sew clothes to save my life!

I've been wanting to learn, but have trouble finding the time and the courage! :applesauce: :applesauce: I especially love the skirt and quilt top.

I sewed a few bags during the summer:

This one was made from and old tea-towel :)

Image

This from a woven table runner:

And the lining:
Image

This went to England, for my daughter - sorry about the fuzzy picture, it was late in the evening. But this fabric - looks like leather but it is textile, mostly used for upholstery - does not photograph well anyway.
Image

And the lining:
Image

Two more, from the same fabric:

Image

Image

And the lining - I played a little with adding a bit of colour.

Image

All these bags, except, of course, the one I sent to Eszter, are going to be on sale in my webshop. :doh: :x:

I also made some teddy bears for a charity:

Agi, these bags are brilliant :stars: You would not know this was a tea towel or place mat.
Upcycling is the way to go these days. You could make quite a good amount of money sewing these for craft fairs. They are great gifts. For someone who has not been sewing very long, you sure wouldn't know by looking at these. And what cutie bears.
Well done :applesauce:
Cheers :toast:

:applesauce: :applesauce: The bags are beautiful! It seems to me you are past that "learning to sew" stage. The teddy bears are adorable. They are so huggable. I love them!

Agi those makes are all amazing!! I agree with Carole - if you're putting zips into things I think you've gone beyond learning to sew!

I made a dress (started last year, made a mistake and sorted it out just now) and a pajama top - as a muslin for a t-shirt. I made a pattern from an old t-shirt of mine that I love but it is too worn now.

I think you are some way past the "learning" phase. These are wonderful, especially the bags, which really show creativity and lateral thinking when using interesting materials.
