Cute elephant Passport Holder and Travel Wallet

Hello again,

I hope you had a great weekends! It's getting warmer in here and new leaves are coming out and with a few spell of rains the trees look fresh!
The boys are having session break holidays and they plan to have a few boys over for the day. 

Elephant Passport Holder

In the meantime, I finished a couple of family passport holders. A custom order from my Etsy shop. I really love this colorful ellie print. I made a basic passport cover earlier with the same print. 

This model is the most popular one in my shop. I published the pattern last year and it's really a humbling experience to see how others made and interpreted the pattern. Thank you so much for you who tagged me on Facebook and Instagram

Another one I finished was this Passport Wallet in African Women Print

This passport holder model can hold 4 passports and a few cards. It even has long zipper pocket and 2 slip pockets. 

It's perfect to keep all your frequent flyer membership cards and documents even when you're not traveling. I am using a single version of this model when I travel alone. 

That's all the news from my sewing room. I still have a few wallets and quilts to finish this week. Hopefully I can complete a few things on my to do list! What about you? Have you tried anything new this week? 

Until then,

Happy Sewing

Industrial Sewing Machine Review - Jack F4


I mentioned in my last post that I got a new machine! Yes another one. I always wanted to get one industrial machine but hesitating a lot. Reading a lot of reviews and visited the machine dealer in my town didn't help much. So last year I decided to get Singer HD instead. It was after I saw Donna Jordan of Jordan Fabric Youtube video that I decided to get one this year.

Well, I am a firm believer that everything will happen at its own time and place. Man proposes, God Disposes. I was chatting with Raji of Homemaker's Hustle and she told me she got Jack industrial machine. I saw so many video about it last year when I researching for industrial machine. I called up my dealer, and voila he said he got Jack machines! I watched youtube review again and decided to get the F4 model. And the verdict? It's so worth the wait!! Why?

The machine is pretty quiet and you just have to switch on and you're ready to go. This was my main concern last year. Most of the industrial machine that is sold here has a clutch motor. 

I've been playing with it for a few days now. Getting used to the speed and love that I don't have to keep changing machine foot. Not even when I sew zipper! I finished 2 passport holders and a couple of mug rugs and quilt tops.

Other features include: Adjustable speed, half stitch and needle up button, and the best thing it sews beautifully from mulmul fabrics to thick layers of quilt and passport holder. 

Now, I'm looking forward to sew more wallets and quilts! Let me know in a comment if you have any questions! 

Until then,

Happy Sewing
