Vintage embroidery pouch

 


A few weeks ago, I visited a pretty nice and big thrift store, when my eye fell on this beautiful vintage embroidery. A seamstress working in the light of the window, a nice fireplace and a cat playing, somehow it seemed just like a painting by the Dutch painter Vermeer to me (I'm obviously no expert). An adorable piece of embroidery and I just had to take it with me for a small project: I wanted to turn it in to a small pouch. And so it happened...

Enjoy!

Making a No-Sew Leather Wrap Belt

 Hello Refashion Co-op. My last post was about a skirt and I used the scraps from that skirt to make this wrap belt.

Before and after.

 
This is the scrap piece I had to work with. 
 
I cut it so that the back would be wider than the front. The narrow ends will cross over each other in the front. 

I punched a hole into one end of the belt and put this leather cord through the hole. 

This video shows how I wrapped it. It is very simple and very adjustable. That is the best feature to me. It will never get too small. Thanks for reading along, for more details go to I Can Work With That.

An Almost No-Sew Leather Skirt Refashion

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I shortened this leather skirt in a fun way. I just started cutting. 

Before and after.

I cut some of the length off and saved that piece for later. This skirt was long on me so there was plenty to cut off.

I cut narrow fringe all around the hem of the skirt.

I used my serger to finish the lining fabric. This is the only sewing I did.
