Today I came with a Japanese crafts inspired shoulder bag pattern. This wonderful looking shoulder bag pattern is shared at “Japanese Sewing Books” blog for free. This bag can be used as a shoulder bag as well as a tote. You can find the tutorial on how to sew this nani IRO reversible shoulder bag from HERE.
I saw this wonderful Apron pattern from Svetadresher (I think I typed it right. That name is kind of weird. he he) That crooss back apron pattern took my eye right away as it looked different. And then I saw this TUTORIAL from Pinterest which is actually the tutorial of how to make this cross back apron pattern. Need I say more? Read the tutorial by clicking “TUTORIAL” link above.
Well, this post is not actually for beginner smockers as contents of this post is more of advanced techniques of smocking. Howefver, if you are smart enough you can also get some really useful info from this “Contemporary Smocking Techniques” post.
You will discover some eye catching advanced smocking techniques as well as some useful smocking tutorials with some tips from this post. You can read this useful post from the above link I provided.
The best way to learn something is starting with something easy. This smock dress is an easy smock project which anyone can follow. The smock dress is designed with the very basic smocking pattern.
