Summer Nightie from One Yard Wonder


I bought One Yard Wonder book few months back. And so far I have made one Folklore Bag and 2 Summer Nighties. I made this red one first and then showed it to my BFF...


she loved it and asked me to make one for her. This one is very cute and sexy and it's easy to make. The pattern is good and it's easy to follow. If you're lucky enough (no laundry to put out, no toddler to feed or demanding endless request) , it takes about 1 hour to make from scratch.



And I made a matching shorts to wear too. The short pattern I got it from one of my vintage pattern. I will write about it later with more photos & review. I hope my bff will like this ^__^

Fabric Flowers



After 2 weeks of making little dresses, yesterday I was browsing the net and found lovely Tutorial on Fabric Flowers. Laurie of Tip Junkie collected few tutorials from across the blogsphere to share with us freely. Thanks a lot Laurie.
There are several fabric flowers tutorial but Multi Petal Flower   from  Sew Ritzy Titzy  I love the most.

Tutorial: banded scrub hat, chemo hat, hijab inner or whatever you call it -__*

I have been meaning to make this hat to wear with my hijab. I bought several hats made of Lycra (synthetic) but it's too slippery. I always prefer the cotton one, anyway. I used to make these hats back when I was in high school.


So, now I'd like to share the tutorial. it's simple and fast to make. So, here we go:

What you need:
1. One rectangular fabric 7" x 22"
2. One rectangular fabric 7" x 9" (you can make it longer if you like it a bit bouncy) - cut oval shape at one end
3. One strip of fabric 4" x 32" (this is what I use, you can make the band less/more broad though)
4. 1/4" elastic - 9"



How to do it:

1. Pin the small rectangular fabric to the big one (right side facing). Put the oval one in the middle of the big rectangular one. I usually pin the the middle, and both ends and adjust the in-between fabric accordingly. Otherwise you can baste the oval part a little bit for ease while maneuvering the middle one.







2.  Stitch all the way around and you'll get something like this:



3. make an elastic casing in the bottom part by folding inside around 1". Stitch.



4. Insert the elastic. When the elastic reach the end of the casing, stitch it in place and then continue inserting until it reach the other end and stitch it in place. You will get something like this.


5. Now fold & iron the band.Attach it to the other end of the hat beginning from the middle part. Pin all the way. Start by sewing from inside of one end of the hat. Turn the fabric around and sew it close from the end of the band, all the way to the other end.





6. Voila...you're done..:)



Link back if you use this tutorial..I'd love to see how your one turn out ...:)
I hope it's clear enough... if you have any questions simply TWEET me -__*.


Happy Sewing & have a lovely weekends
