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 open everything and start making it all over again. So I do the next best thing, by putting it away till I got better idea what to do with it. *Anyone ???*


so, here they are: (pssstt! the stripe one at the back is the one having prob. with the zip:D)


Oh and I started learing CROCHET too, by the way. I've seen my friend here making pretty crochet stuff that I decided I have to learn. Well, this aunt of my DH knows about it and she tought me a little bit before she went to visit her DD, so here it is:

I did the neck line and the mirror work (what's the best word to describe it actually??) just to give a little accent there. This is is my fave fabric. Pure cotton with this print. Though it's quite common here in INDIA but still I love the print. I had one in Pink and Green too...:D. If you like it, you can take a look at the detail of the tunic HERE

Hmm..that's all for today...hope you all have a great weekends...just remember: Stay healthy, eat healthy and Have a nice CRAFTY day...;)

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

the detail


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 town. So it's easy to access. Shillong is not a big town anyway, but it's always more practical to stay in the hotel which has spacial lawn for the kids to run around, and near the park and shopping area.

Ehm...about shopping, my DH said "we are going in holiday not for shopping..:D" and I said "Well, that's from man's point of view, from my point of view, holiday is not complete without shopping"..Rite, ladies??????

So, we spent 2 nights there, we went to Elephat Falls. This water falls has 3 steps of water falling. The main Falls is right down there. I don't know how high exactly but it's quite tiring. Luckyly the weather is such that you don't feel lethargy so much and it's worthed to climb down and up and touch the cool water:D.



Ward Lake for boating & feeding the fish & ducks,


Lady Hydery Park to see the flowers ~ but too bad this time the flower has become bad due to excessive rain,

and to play a bit...



We went Golf Link to run around a bit. It was quite cloudy and lots of people playing golf in one side, foot ball down there and also cricket in one side. It's a sprawling place. It was just nice to sit and watch the kids run around....




And of course the popular Police Bazaar. I visited few emporiums too and got few interesting stuff.




Here are few stuff that I bought:
1. Clock with various pulses inside. I bought this from a souvenir stall at the Elephant Falls owned by an elderly Khasi Lady:






2. Craft books/magazines. Found them in one of old dusty book stall. The magazines are secondhand of course, but it's still in good conditions with pattern attched. So I just couldn't leave them behind, though my DH make faces at me...:D

I think that's all for today....:)

Thanks for dropping by and Have a Nice Day
