Jumper

I have been working on this jumper for the past few days now and finally it is done.

I had a tough time trying to match the plaids, especially because of the box pleats, which I should have avoided, as it made me look less thinner than I actually am ;)
I will make one more soon with a different fabric, this time with no pleats.


I remembered I had a belt somewhere in my closet, and this is how it looked with the belt. I think I am going to wear it this way. :)

Stitch Magazine

I made this Techno Travel Roll from Stitch Magazine, and it turned out really well. I made this along with the laptop sleeve for my Bro, as he travels a lot.

The instructions were pretty easy to follow and I could whip it up in about 2 hours. I printed a couple of pictures onto a fabric and then appliqu├ęd them, just to add a personal touch :)



Oops, I am sure you will ignore the pencil markings [wink]. I forgot to erase them before taking the picture because I was in a hurry to send the package :).

Laptop sleeve/bag


I wanted to give a laptop sleeve/bag to my brother and have been working on it for the past few days and finally it is done.

I am not really satisfied with the way it turned out, but then this is my first attempt, and learnt a lot during the process. :)

Again, I did not use any pattern. I just measured my bro's laptop (17" diagonal screen) which was pretty big, and the picture tells how it finally turned out.
