H Πρώτη μου ποδιά...




Αποφάσισα λοιπόν να φτιάξω την πρώτη μου ποδιά για την κουζίνα...

Κάπου βρισκόταν ένα κομμάτι καραβόπανο(χρειαζόμαστε ένα χοντρό ύφασμα) παραπεταμένο και λίγο λινό για την κορδέλα οπότε ξεκινάμε...Α! Και διάφορα κομμάτια μοκρότερα για τα απλικέ,όχι που δεν θα της έβαζα απλικέ.




Το αποτέλεσμα μου άρεσε πολύ!Νομίζω θα φτιάξω και άλλες για δωράκια σε φίλες και φίλους.
Επειδή το καραβόπανο είναι χοντρό ύφασμα και σε κάποια σημεία σε πολλές στρώσεις δεν ξεχνάμε να δουλεύουμε την ραπτομηχανή με το χέρι και όχι ηλεκτρονικά με το πεντάλ για να μην σπάσει η βελόνα.Επίσης η βελόνα που θα χρησιμοποιήσουμε να είναι για denim.

perennial pants(2nd attempt)



well Im back with this very promising pattern...

This time I sewed the XS size and used a cotton-linen fabric.I changed the front pleats and made two darts on the back.I also added 1 inch on the weist height.
For sure the result is better than the first one but I'm not completely pleased with it.Maybe I'm using the wrong fabric....don't know...Next time I will use a viscose.Anyway is a very comfotable pair of pants and I think I will wear them a lot.

I rarely cook because I don't have enough free time unfortunately....I thing that I cook more for my bitch than I do for us.
Anyway,one of my sewing plans is to sew aprons,but until that time I decided to give color to an old white apron that I had with some simple applique designs.Very quick and easy project that changed a very dull apron that didn't want to wear before....




brother 3034D









Today I would like to review my serger.The Brother 3034D.I bought it a few months ago from SMD.I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend their store.With the serger I received threads and scissors as a gift!
I had never used a serger before and to be honest I was terrified that I couldn't use it without a live demonstration.But I didn't want to buy it from Greece because the price was much much higher!So I took the risk and bought it from an online store.The serger comes with instructions of course in a book and in DVD.The hardest part in a serger is the threading,but with the 3034D is super easy!Honestly I couldn't believe it when I first thread it and it was working properly!The instructions in the DVD are very helpfull and the videos that I found on YOUTUBE about the 1034D(similar model) also helped a lot!

I have used it on various fabrics from very light to denim and it worked quite well!It is very fast and it is absolutely necessary to the beginner sewer who sews garments and wants that lovely professional loοk of the serged seams.I also like that it is more quite than I expected and it is very sturdy too!
