The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Made by me but not for me !!! What did you make for someone else?

When you start sewing, there is always a question when you show a project to someone _ "Can you make me one?" Or maybe a gift with more personality was the motivation.


What have you sew/made for someone else? Please share pictures too.

Don't be afraid of the bag's they're not so hard (no fitting issues with a bag!) I recommend a book called The Bag Making Bible for some basics, I'm trying to get a nice pile of bags to sell at a fayre (of course all bags need to be road tested first!) and am working on a new design (currently UFO in the sewing room, gah!)

The cape is not a cape but a Henry VII style tunic thing and it was the most horrendous thing I've made, I swear I broke 500 needles with this thing, velvet and upholstery fabric = nightmare!  It's made from this pattern he loves it so the nightmare was worth it :)

that pattern is awesomeness! it makes it (a bit more) worth it when they love it...


i made a diaper bag once for a new momma, my first bag ever. the horror.

This is a lot more than a few things and BTW they are awesome things! Love them all! Thanks for sharing visuals!

I havent made much... here it are:

i'm with your friend, i so would have swiped that dress from you. i have the perfect red earrings and tan belt to go with it. (don't tell your friend, though, she can't have them.)

I think I would take the dress too ...

Well, this is over the almost 2 years of sewing and kid stuff its quick...I feel like i could do much more .

I been asked to do a vitorian costume for Dickens festival - but I just froze and said I didnt had the experience...
