{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…

Mother of Pearl

Sometime back I made this one...I'm not sure how you like it but I'm quite happy with it. The mother pearl and red faux swarowzki is really great combo, I think. It lit up the whole thing..:)
Hmm...but somehow the photo didn't do justice to the real one. Or maybe my angle of taking the shot was somehow wrong :D

Anyway...presenting...mother of pearl & red swarowzki chrystal...with a matching earings

I have finished with my last projects and these few days don't feel like doing anything. Well, there are lots of work to be done in connection with my upcoming exihibtion. So far everything seems to be going in the right direction..:D..
But I too have to start putting labels on my stuff again. There are 3 HUGE suitcases full of new stuff from my recent visit to Calcutta. And of course there are loooooonnnggg list of crafty projects to be DONE...
Besides I'm starting an ONLINE SHOP with my friend. We still trying to figure out the whole things actually...since this is our first ventures. And of course my ETSY shop which is there and I already have few things to upload but still havent got the time to do it ~ but hopefully SOON...

SO meanwhile, there are the things that I recently added on my ETSY






That's all for now...I gotta go ...till then...HAVE A NICE DAY


Personalized Coasters for Dear Friend

These are the complete set of coasters (6 of them) that I made for my friend's DH's birthday. She had some sort of cyber birthday party for him...(such a sweet gesture..dont you think..;) ;)...)
so without further a do here they are:






I hope they will like them though....well, actually I wanted to do blanket stitch all around the coasters but then I already very late for my SWAP with her so I just sent them yesterday....Ow..forgot to post what I got from my swap..:D...

Wall Hanging for personal swap

Seems I'm in embroidery mode this time..:D and I really enjoyed making this one. I made this for personal swap with my friend . I took the design from the same book as my previous post. The book is full of this pretty designs that when I saw it I feel like doing all of them..:D


And the sad thing is my digicam is stopped functioning 2 days ago and I took it to the service centre and hopefullly they'll be able to mend it...I took this embroidery using my handycam which somehow the color is not as bright as I'd like it to be...Anyway..I hope she will like it, though blue is not ger fave color..I know, I should've asked her in the first place..and I think I'm gonna making it up with something...(its secret projects ~ once done I'll post it here ;))


So..tadaaaa .....:
I put it on a mock frame using yellow manila paper (dont have the blue one)

The design from the book:) The details...the gold thread really brighten up the whole thing:)Thanks for looking and HAVE A NICE DAY
