besides shopping, I also sewed a little the past few days. If you're german-speaking, you might want to pay a visit to Natron&Soda, my favourite sewing forum. I currently feature a Work-In-Progress to reduce my to-sew-list there (^.^)
One thing I made was a thingy to hang in the bathroom, which should organize my stuff. Honestly, girls do have too many beauty products! So originally, I just wanted to buy one at Ikea. However, I ended up not buying the thingy, but two meters of this beautiful, pink-grey-offwhite striped cotton fabric. I can't help it, no matter what I intend to get at Ikea, I always leave with fabric instead *sigh*
Lots of ruffles, I know. I couldn't fight it! It was stronger than me, I swear!
On the upside, now everything has its place, I hope, I can keep the order haha (*.*)
Another item I desperately needed was a decent bag for concerts. I'm always afraid I might lose my stuff or something could get stolen. Plus, I finally wanted a bag that has enough space, unlike those itty-bitty bags you have to cram all your things inside and everytime you want to take out something, everything else falls out too (>.<)
I recently saw a bag of similar size on a concert and tought, that would be a convenient one. Of course, I had to add some ruffles too, and a little bow (^.^).
It isn't exactly the most accurate thing I ever sewed, on the contrary. But it had to go fast, I wanted to take it to the next concert, which is tomorrow! Anyways, it was more important to me that it's resistant to all the inconvenients involved with a concert. And it had to be black. xD
The bag has a zipper for the main pocket and a seperate pocket, without closure, in the front.
On the inside, I made another pocket with zipper. Do you recognize the lining? It's a leftover from my quilt.
The best thing about this bag is that it's made entirely of fabrics and materials I already had at home. So, it's not only unique and costumized to my needs and tastes, but also way cheaper than if had just bought one! Those are the moments I really appreciate my hobby (^.^)
As I'll be quite busy for the next days, I already wish you a nice weekend. Take care!
