Just a little up date

These few days been busy with my first ever handycraft & handloom exhibition. It's on for 1 week from 8th to 14th september from 10 am to 8 pm. So it's kinda hectic days for me. First days was going ok and a bit tiring, since I haven't been "working" for the last 6 years hehehe...anyway, it's fun. I got to meet lots of new sellers who mainly ladies who run their business from home just like me and they do exhibition from time to time.

Actually we have lots of exhibition in here. We have this Haat call NEDFI haat which exhibit craft from North East Indian states. Different groups will hold the exhibition. SO if I want to join certain group I have to approach the committee. It's not that easy and at time needs recommendation from senior members, which is in my case, I was introduced by one friend of my MIL.

Yeasterday was good, cos few people really like what I made and some even give custom order..(YAY)...hehehe...now I learnt one thing "never underestimate your talent" he he he...The dress that I thought no body will take a look at it, was sold, even few bags & purses...:D

so, friends, wish me luck for today...I'll update the story later again....:)

Miss you all

Tutorial: Make your own flowing skirt

I remembered when I just passed college and was looking for a job. One day I got a letter for interview in another city very far from my place. I was frantically trying to put together my clothes but what I really needed was missing. Yes, A SKIRT. I had this blazer but with no matching skirt. I spent half day mall hopping with no result. So I decided to buy a fabric and made my self a SKIRT. And off I went for the interview.
So, if you happened to be in the same situation like I had but with novice skill of sewing, what would you do? Exactly make a skirt for yourself...:D. Here's the simplest way to make your self that flowing flirting skirt. Ok, shall we start now...

What you need:
* 1.5 meters of fabric (if you want the flowing flirting one, try crepe or poly cotton fabric) * Sewing notions: scissors, pin, newspaper, measuring tape, pencil, thread, etc and of course a sewing machine:) * elastic
How to:
1. Measure your HIP + 2" (for wiggle room) + 1 " (seam) .  My result…

Everyone needs Family Passport Wallet

Oh yes, I know how it feels carrying 4 passports, residential permit, marriage certificate, exit permit plus my PIO card while travelling. Not to mentions the tickets - several of them since we always have to have several stop overs >_<.  The options I have are store bought leather passport wallet or the one from the travel agents, which barely survived one trip.

So, why not make one? Yes..so, benchmarking from the store bought wallet, here's my straight and simple {and cute} Family Passport Wallet

This wallet can hold up to 6 passport and spacious long pocket on the sides to keep your travel documents and small change. 

It has a small swivel hook for your luggage keys (yay)
I used Indian cotton fabric and heavy interface. It's sturdy and  a wide velcro closure will keep everything in place. 
Another one I made was using this cute hot air balloon over the Eiffel Tower fabric. Bought them from this shop during my trip back home last July.

I love that little…
