March theme for #magamsewalong is Matching March and I decided to sew a denim dress matching with a denim bag. And in the end, I decided to sew a zippered pouch to go with the bag.
To follow my yearly theme, I used fabric from stash and leftover cotton scrap from the previous garment. Also, I managed to reuse my husband's shirt that he doesn't use for the pouch lining.
So happy that I don't need to go out to the fabric shop in the middle of this difficult time.
Well, we don't have any social activities since the beginning of February and hope this pandemic will pass soon.
The bag and pouch were my patterns, I explained all in my Instagram stories, highlights Denim Bag and I'll show you the pictures of the progress below.
Also, I raised the pocket placement 3 cm because they look too low for my liking.
the video if you are interested to see the process.
I sewed the leftover denim pieces and made the rectangle shape.
I reused my old bag handles and used cotton scrap for the bag lining.
The hand-embroidery was inspired by Sashiko stitch and I love the result, very cute! I'd love to make another in the future.
