Yes, yes, YES!

First of all, here's the coolest video of this week!

That was the coolest video ever, tha' week, Yes Miss!

September is a lady in tweed, walking down the Avenue to her favorite Bistro for a cup of coffee and a muffin..

I've made this cool 'Digibudi's Headphones Bag' for my favorite Job-Student-Colleague, Maxine..

"This bag is the coolest" , Max said.


And now for a little tutorial on how to make your own 'Digibudi's YES-Sachet'..

fabric dmc verpakking
I've got these amazing new fabrics from DMC, right out of the store I work for. It's DMC's Impressions, with baby blue or pink prints on them. I just adore them. The possibilities for using those fabrics in many cool projects is unlimited!

I've received two packages which include:
Pink 'Vichy Squares, Hearts and Stripes' and the same designs in Baby Blue.

fabric dmc blue stripes
For this project I've used the Baby Blue Stripes.

Scetch project dmc zakje
I've made the design in my first Moleskine sketchbook.
I've cut out some samples of the silk ribbons and the lace I will use for this sugar sweet project.

You will also need some trims (in Broderie Anglaise), some thread for Crosstitching a design unto the little sachet. And of course your fabric and silk ribbon.

The best thing to do is to make a little design onto the fabric. But I've used some pre-cut felt Alphabet letters instead.. Because I didn't had a lot of time.. (due to the fact I've been working my *%@! off lately, and my course for Time-Management hasn't proved to be a good choice..

What you do first is;
Put out your fabric and zigzag your way to happiness by sewing the edges of the fabric. Like so..

zakje wondertape 1
I always use this WonderTape when I need to sew pretty details on pretty stubborn fabric. (got it from Prym)

Just tape the Wondertape unto the fabric where you want to sew your ribbon or lace..

zakje wondertape 2
Pull the paper layer of, et voila: You've got a nice little sticky tape where you can put your ribbon or lace. It doesn't stick unto your machine needle, and when you wash it with some warm water it will disappear. Great stuff!

zakje ribbon layout
Just put your ribbon or lace unto the sticky Wondertape, and then all you've got to do is sew.. Nothing will move, no pins will be needed. Isn't that the best?

Sew the ribbon or lace unto the fabric..

I've used this really cool plastic-fantastic-rainbow thread

zakje gestikt nog niet buitengedraaid
After you sewed the sachet (right sides together, and use a zigzag for security) you'll want to turn it inside out..

Et voila! After some embellishments, and some soft pastel dreaming, the Sachet is finished!


And remember : 'If it isn't sweet, it must be sour!'


  1. YOU are just going to town, here! And that headphones bag is almost as cool as the purse you made for me!!

    I am sending out a package to you tomorrow--sorry for the delay. But I love all these cool ideas you are sharing.

  2. OOh, what an excellent two-fer! I love the bag AND the tutorial! Not to mention, it's always a treat to hear your blog-voice. :-)
