These are the last clothes and gift that I made for my DIY Christmas Sewing Gifts/Ideas 2017. Two dresses for my daughters, for the eldest it is a Sweatkleid Chloe and for my youngest it is a Sweatkleid Teenie Bella, patterns are both from www.pattydoo.de. Both fabrics are jersey knit fabrics that I bought at Royal Tissus here in Liege. The Easy Modern Apron of Betz White is a class from www.craftsy.com. One of the fabrics I used here is also bought at Royal Tissus and the other is from stash.

Finally I made this Voku-Hila-Rock Skirt, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. This is an experiment because I don’t have any idea of what fabric will I use but in this case I used a blue jeans fabric that I have, plain and easy to pair it with a decorative shirt or blouse. This jeans is not that thick but there’s still stiffness in it. Easy to follow instructions from youtube and at the same time easy to sew. My sister from Philippines says that such skirt is the “in“ thing there.

My eldest daughter asked this project long time ago and you know me I always have this bad habit to -- procrastinate but I am able to make it on time. This is Annex Double - Zip Box Pouch, pattern is from www.sewsweetness.com. I made this night till dawn and so I have to recuperate some zzZZZ after. This is my daughters' gift for what they call "cacahuète" or simply exchange gifts at her school. And of course I prefer not to wrap so you can see on the photos how it will be given.

Next project in line are these shirts of www.pattydoo.de, it's Men's Shirt "Max". In these shirts I have to mix & match and should pay attention to not have an identical finished shirt that I have made before, although yes indeed it has the same fabrics as before because I have bought meters and meters of that same fabrics.

Holiday season is fast approaching and I am a bit late for our "gifts" so have to rush rush things. This is the first time I made a custom tote on a www.craftsy.com class - an Elegant Machine Embroidered Bags of Amanda Murphy. I choose different matching embroidery threads to be paired with the bottom fabrics that I have chosen. The white fabric is from my stash and that 's from Ikea fabrics then bottom fabrics are from stash as well of Stoffenspektakel. Thread floss are from www.berninabritte.be and I make it a point to have reserves in times of need. As for the straps it has been bought from Veritas store.

This has been requested long, long time ago and finally I was able to finish it. A Reversible Shopper Bag "Wendy", pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. These fabrics have been bought at Stoffenspektakle/Marché du Tissu last September. I did not add interfacing but the white Ikea fabric that I added serves as an interlining of the bag. An embroidered name has been added as well.
