Fun Floral Flat Pouch

Hello,

This is another late post. I made these pretty large pouches  for my SIL who was going for get together with her school friends last December. She picked up a few from my stocks and I made a few more for her.


She wanted in florals. I picked up few fabrics from my pre-cut stocks and started making. 


These pouches are pretty quick to whip up. If you ever need to make a quick gift, this is the one. 


The size is perfect to carry it as a clutch or use it as a travel pouch. 


These two are my favorite. Love the printed jute / burlap fabric. The photos here just don't do justice. I was in a hurry and took the pictures at night. 


I also completed this gadget organizer for a friend's son. I used sew sweetness pattern. I learned a couple of things here. The round zipper always scared me but after  making 2 of this, I think I get the hang of it.


I kinda love this black and teal combo. I got the batman fabric from Rohini. You know, when you have (only)boys, you tend to pick up any boys print and then I realized my sons are no longer into superheroes, well, except doraemon! 



These two family passport wallets I finished in December too. I really love the prints and still have them in Red and Green. 


So, what are you doing? Any sewing target or resolutions that you've started or even completed? 

Whatever it is, always remember to enjoy the journey. You don't have to compete with the world. 

Until then,

Happy Sewing



Sew Small Things

Hello,

I really love sewing small things, be it a pouch, bags or quilts. Last month, being the holiday season, I made a couple of cute little sling bags for the nieces and for my friends' daughter too. 

I made this cats and arrow sling bags  for Zahra and Zoya. They chose the fabric a few months ago when they came to visit us. 

I chose this simple one from one of my Japanese patterns. A simple straight forward sling bags and the size is just perfect for little girls.


This one I made for Afra, since I made the gadget case for his brother, I decided to make one mini sling bag for her. This one was the original pattern, with darts on the corner. 


It turned out really cute that one can make a pouch instead of sling bag. Trust the Japanese to make cute little patterns. 


The book didn't come with a pattern, but gave detail measurements. I made my own pattern based on the measurements given in the book.


I love the simple rounded corner version though. It's really a quick project to make. 
 This Frozen sling bag I made for Jasmine, Eva's daughter. It's a long due. 
 For the strap, I did not use any interfacing, since it's for a little girl, I thought as soft strap would be better. 

perfect size to carry her fave stuff

  Subha who always helped me with my visa, whenever I travelled, asked for a specs cover. I was not sure whether it was for the sun glasses or for reading glasses, so I made in-between size.


The fabric was a patchwork print fabric so I just need to quilt it and added fun wooden button and elastic. Instant cuteness!

Simple sewing is always fun and when it's done using fun fabrics, it always turned out perfect.

What about you? What are you sewing this week? 

Until then,




Batik Passport Holder

Hello,

I finished this family passport holder last month. It was a custom order and she wanted it in Batik. Off course I was delighted. I've kept several bundle of bali batiks that I am selling in the shops for my future project. 


Don't you love those bundles?

The new bundles are all so pretty and so inspiring. She chose one from the green bundle in my Fabric Shop and I really enjoyed creating this Family Passport Wallet



I decided to combine it with a matching green poplin and going with softer color on the inside. It matched beautifully. I hope she will love it. 


For this wallet, she chose to add long zipper on one side and 2 clear pocket. Instead of the small zipper pocket like in the original pattern. 
I've been planning to make tutorial on the long zipper pocket, but still have not got the time to do it. Insha Allah when I make the next wallet, I will take  proper pictures.

Until then,

Happy Sewing
