Few stuff and a little ranting...:D

I haven't posting for a loong time..:D. I made few things and got lil busy with this and that...Anyway, all's well...I'm getting ready for my next exhibition next month, but still hasnt been able to get anything done. My son's entrance for the BIG SCHOOL is on 19th, so inwardly I am quite nervous:D. The system is bugging me no ends, but again I cant go againts it. Well, who am I to complain, rite?? So, till the high n mighty ministry of education do something about it, we ~ parents ~ will continue teaching our toddlers ABC & Math as early as possible, so that our children will get a seat in a DECENT school.
Enough of my ranting...so, here I made another set of Pink top-pants-stole for the same girl, since her Mom said she love the previous one so much..(yay!!)

And here is inspired by my friend Monika . Well, I dont have maple trees here, but I always love the maple leaves...and its color during fall season. And there's a challenge in Crafsters which I wish I could participate...but I didnt get the time to finish it :(. Anyway..so far here is what I've done...I thought of doing few maple leaves on the upper right corner. *what do you think?*.
In the beginning I was not very sure with the color...but I think it looks ok now..:D
(oops forgot to upload the full fotos...It suppose to be a placemat, btw..:D)


This is a tray cloth...I did post it in my other BLOG. So I hope you dont get bored to see it again here..*LOL*...anyway..it suppose to be some flower but it looks more like chilli tree to me..:). So chilli tree it is...


Thanks for looking...and comment would be nice..;)

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…

Interfacing Guide for Handmade bag in India

Hello,
Today I want to share about interfacing. Not the famous brand, we don't have those branded interfacings here in India. I often receive a message asking what interfacing I used in my bags, Pouches, and Wallets.
Many of you probably already read interfacing guide by Sew Sweetness but since we - in India - don't have all those brands, we are back to square one, right?
I have been experiencing with many kinds and quality of interfacings. Which interfacing to use depends on what kind of project and what look that I want. Floppy, firm, sturdy, quilted, etc.
I recently purchase a roll of heavy woven interfacing and I am happy that I finally found it. It took me several trips to the wholesaler. He was kind enough to let me check through all kind of interfacings without asking  "what are you making, ma'am?" which is pretty much the habit of Indian (male) shopkeeper/sales person. And it always pisses me off, cos what I am making is none of his business ^^. Anyway, …
