{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

Hello,
The last two days was euphoria for me. It's the first time I got published in an online media and that too on Ecwid Blog! I was contacted by them by email early this month and was so excited about it. You can read my Behind the Scene Story in Ecwid Blog. I hope I can inspire more mothers who decided to left 9 to 5 job and pursue her dreams.

Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I got email from Patti, asking about how to add zipper pocket on the Phone Pouch. Thank you so much Patti!! Adding zipper pouch is very easy. If you already got the pattern  here is what you have to do. (if you haven't,  you can get it at the end of this post)

After you cut all your Exterior, Lining and Interfacing pieces as per pattern instructions, cut 2 extra lining pieces of Main Panel.

1. Fuse the interfacing on to the wrong side of the back exterior piece. Mark 1.5" down on one of the short end and cut.

Do the same with one of the lining piece.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Bags and everything else

Been making lots of small bags (pouches) these days...and busy with my first venture HERE, and my exhibition next month..I feel like 24 hours is never enough if you have to do all by your self. Anyway, my dear Mom inLaw is really BIG support since she helps me a lot with looking after the kids (though I have maid, but can trust them nowadays??), so that I have a little time to do this and that..:) ..thats including Blogging and I'm too much into blogging in my other BLOG nowadays. And I got lots of stuff to upload to my ETSY shop and havent taken any photos cos my cam just refused to work. Thankfully my Dearest Hubby got another one for me after seeing me struggling with editing each and every photos I took using my handycam..:X Isn't he sweet??
OK enough about ranting, now I want to talk about these little bags I made. Well, one is finished and when I pulled the zipper, i just gave away!!!.Now what do I do?? I hate ~repeat H*A*T*E ~ opening it again since it means I have to op…

Lunch Bag, Purselette & Pouch

Finally after weeks of laziness, I decided to come back to make something in my sewing machine.
And here what I come up with:

1. Small lunch bag (or you can use it as diaper bas as well ~ its quite spacious). I use casement fabric. I did the applique and embroidered the leaves. I thing the applique flowers are too big..:D Anyway lesson learnt, next time I'll make better one (hopefully..;)

Hanging
2. I have this black n white handloom fabric for quite sometimes now. I wanted to make pouches/purse with it, so here the first two of my pouch cosmetic pouch triagle side
Thank to Wulan for giving me the idea about the detail/zipper. :D
the purselette/wristlette. The same size (18 x 13 cm) with straight side

I cut another one but I run out of zipper..:D

Hope you like it. Comment would be nice and very much appreciated...
Thanks for looking..;)

Have a nice DAY

Just came back

We just came back from Shillong for holiday. Actullay it's long overdue. Due to my DH hectic schedule in the office we simply couldn't go earlier. My elder son was very excited the moment we said "we are going to Shillong" since he loves to run around in the Golf link there.




Oh btw, Shillong is a Hill Town the capital of Meghalaya state in NE India. It's almost 3 hours drives from where we live now. It's popular destination for weekends gateways because of it's weather. It's realtively cold throughtout the year. It has the popular CHEERA PUNJI or SOHRA, the wettest place on earth with it's natural root bridge, caves, and waterfalls. Too bad we couldn't go there this time.



Anyway, we stayed in Pinewood Hotel. It's a government hotel so the service etc is SO SO, but the good things is the bathroom is clean..:D. Well, I'm a bit particular about this one since we travelled with children below 5 years:D

The hotel is right in the heart of the t…
