Selection of tutorials and DIY

Manouche’s selection of sewing tutorials & DIY

Nice modern projets to sew without patterns and DIY to optimise your scrap fabrics.
Here is Manouche’s selection for smart sewing projets. No waste allowed!


A blanket : DIY for an easy project

A tutorial without pattern and no waste of fabric. Easy, nice, usefull.

Sewing a blanket for your own self or as a present, what a cool and nice project! Who hasn’t dreamed of a cosy blanket to wrap into?
Manouche fabrics are perfect for this type of project. Let’s go!

COUVERTURE BEBE MANOUCHE TISSUS TOILE DE COTON NAZCA
Cotton nazca – baby size 120x140cm
Viscose prairie – adult size 140×160

In terms of supplies you will need a fabric for each side. It can be the same or, as in the example, Nazca cotton paired with a false fur fabric.
You will also need a thicker fleece for the middle layer, to ‘stuff’ the blanket.
I did a quick tutorial video to show the different steps to follow!


DIY & tutorials : an upcyling selection!

Here is a selection of ideas I found here and there to easily use all of your fabric scraps. Beginner friendly as always on Manouche, these projects really nice and totally suitables as handmade presents.

Edition tissus, boutique eshop tissus au mètre, tissus uniques colorés, imprimés

An easy project to use the end of your fabric. You can also destroy into little pieces your fabric scraps to stuff the pillow. A zero waste process!

LINGETTES DOUBLE FACES MANOUCHE TISSUS
LINGETTES DOUBLE FACES MANOUCHE TISSUS

In terms of supplies, there is not much. Choose a soft quality of sponge fabric if you don’t have it already. I like organic bamboo for my face. It is soft and nice especially for makeup removal.

Why Manouche has a free sewing patterns section?

Since sewing is a passion that can easily turns quite expensive, free sewing patterns are a valuable ressource not to be ignored.

It is also a very nice way to see if the brand kind of ‘talks’ to you or not. And to make things convienient for my favorite visitors, I made a selection of my favorites free sewing patterns.

They have been a great way to highlight my designs and because I tested them, I can talk about it! You will find more details, explainations, videos and photos on my different accounts just bellow

Free patterns and then what?

Free patterns are an excellent base to learn sewing. They will drive you through basics shapes and sewing technics that will allow you to progress nicely. With time you will be able to adapt shapes and style to your body and taste. Eventually, you will make your own pattern transformations to create pieces that will belong to you only.
