Handbag sewing course

I took a handbag sewing course with André Wallenborg in October. We made a medium size handbag with both short handles and a long strap.

We learned how to sew in faux leather, and many other smart techniques
to sew a good quality handbag.

We used faux leather for the short handles and the bottom.  Main fabric is from Stoff & Stil
I am really pleased with the result 😊
Nice details. It is fully lined and has three pockets inside.
I have taken two sewing courses with designer André Wallenborg before. The first one in 2013 (look here) and one in 2015 (look here).
He makes the most beautiful handbags at his studio in Moss. He is a great teacher and we learned so many smart ways to sew all the different details/construction of a handbag.

Varda Top #2

Here is my second Varda Top.  I really liked the first one so I had to make another one 😊.

It´s a great pattern from Christine Haynes

The fabric is a very soft and lovely cotton from Stoff & Stil.

Invisible zipper at the back. (almost perfect...)

October was a productive sewing month for me. This is my third garment made in October.

Luna Stretch Pant

I bought a Luna Pant pattern + Spice Stretch Bengaline fabric bundle from Style Arc. And the total cost was only AUD 47,84!! What a bargain 😄!! All the way from Australia to Norway! 

 Love the included labels 💕 Gives the garment a professional look!

The pattern was easy to follow and the fabric was great to sew with.

I am very satisfied with the result 😊

Beautiful riverside (Akerselva) here in Oslo in October.

Blackwood cardigan #2

This is my second Blackwood cardigan. I really liked the first one, so I had to make another one.

I made this slightly shorter than the first one.

Pattern from Helen´s Closet. Fabric from Stoff & Stil. Dark blue cotton/polyester blend.

Great pattern!!

Very happy with my two Blackwood Cardigans 😊

Beautiful weather and autumn colors outside our apartment here in Oslo.
