Back to school

Tomorrow is the day. The first day of this academic year, to be precise... I'm not happy to wake up at 6 for the next 6 months, but to be honest I was almost fed up with this holidays!
And holidays for me are never relaxing, I always find some additional job to do, which is more tiring than university!

In my spare time I created a pencilcase for my mother, who works as a teacher in a primary school. All her collegues were very envious! :-)

I also tried to do a new bag, but I was successful only at the second trial... When I first turned it right-side-out it was a disaster. I sewed the parts on the wrong side, which was very funny to see. It's a pity I didn't take a picture of that!
And here's the final result, after I resewed it! I like it, even if it's a bit too small for my style!

Little black thing

Yesterday evening I finally did the disco-pocket for my sister. She loves to go dancing and asked me to do a small pocket to hang on her belt, so that her hands are free. She just wanted to put the driving license and a key inside, which means max 10 cm for the pocket!

Here's the result! She was enthusiast!!

Old and new experiments...

In these days I felt less creative as usual, so I decided to reuse my old clutch version to do a kitten portemonnaie. It's really sweet. I love cats and this is my fave fabric!

Then I found a great pattern on the blog Noodlehead, but I confess: my purse is terrible compared to hers! Anyways, lots of love to Anna for sharing her gathered clutch tutorial!!

The only doubt I still have is... do the seams remain visible? In my case it looks pretty horrible because of the many layers I used. Does anybody have suggestions?
Here you see how it looks in my gathered clutch!
(and don't look at the zipper, one day I'll learn that too!!)
