Last week I made this dress for my youngest daughter. Spring is just around the corner here in Australia and it is always nice with a new dress when the warmer weather arrives.
My youngest daughter is a very big Harry Potter fan and seems to know every detail about the topic. In a couple of weeks she is going to Oz Comic-Con here in Melbourne in a Hermione Granger costume and asked me to make her the beaded bag.
I did a bit of research and the blog Finding My Way gave me a lot of inspiration on how to make it.
It is a quite easy tutorial and one of those projects where you can play around with materials and embellishments. In addition to cotton fabric I used scraps of velvet and satin. For embellishments I used a braided ribbon and black seed beads and also the decorative stitches on my sewing machine which I usually don’t use very often. I hope you enjoy the tutorial.
Until next time happy sewing and take care!
