Accessory round up

Pin It Hello there!!!  Well, the holidays are over and I (Major Moma) thought I would throw out some smaller project ideas since many of us are a bit tired from all the celebrating during the holiday season.  Clothes are not the only item in a tween's wardrobe and certainly not the only thing you can sew for your tween.

Accessories are an excellent project to make a hand-made outfit look custom.  They are also a great idea for beginner sewers because you don't have to worry about fitting issues.

Simplicity notebook cover and carrier

My daughter reads many books on her kindle and here is a cute pattern to make a cover or case.
Violet Fields Threads' Felicity hair flower
Violet Fields Threads' Delilah necklace
Aeroplane bag
Cadet Cap
Burda Shoulder bag

Burda cap
Burda Soft Satchel

 And I just love this rose necklace from Violet fields.

And several pattern makers have a wide variety of bags and backpacks that you can customize to fit the needs and fashion sense of your tween.

And what about accessory tutorials?  There are a million free tutorials out there with some great ideas for accessories.  Simplicity has several HERE, and I thought THIS recent post on Sew Country Chic could easily be translated for a tween.

Do you sew accessories?  What do you think of these as beginner projects?
