Thank You

It's only one week left for my Giveaway...I'm very excited my self..:) I know, I should advertise it abit. But right now I'm quite busy and it's nearing the festival season so there are lots of things to get done in advance.
Anyway, taking advice for you all, I'm trying out a new way of showing off my tunics. I'm taking it outdoor and with life model. I'm so nervous my self...but I always have to reshoot the photo over and over again, in the end I have lots of tunics waiting to be listed. I wish I could afford to hire a professional photographer :D

Anyway, I was hanging around in the Etsy community looking for clues..and found this great site about photography tips. Table Top Studio has almost everything from how to shoot jewelry to clothes.

So here are few of my trial and error. It's still a very very far from perfect, so....please please leave your comments..I'd really love to hear from you...

All these tunics some already there in the shop and I will add more soon.

Thank you very much for you who submitted your entries..wishing you all the best. Well, I really can get use to away my craft I mean. Since there are lots of festival to celebrate in India and in fact, the festivals season is just maybe - just maybe - I will have another giveaway soon...:D

Thanks for reading this....have a nice crafty day

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?, 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…

Fabric Flowers

After 2 weeks of making little dresses, yesterday I was browsing the net and found lovely Tutorial on Fabric Flowers. Laurie of Tip Junkie collected few tutorials from across the blogsphere to share with us freely. Thanks a lot Laurie.
There are several fabric flowers tutorial but Multi Petal Flower   from  Sew Ritzy Titzy  I love the most.

If you like ruffled flower, you can try Sew Serendipity's summer flower. I'm yet to try that one. But I'm surely will give it a try. it looks so pretty & better than yoyo...ehm..I love yo yo flower simply because it's easy and fast to make, since I'm always in a hurry :-).

Until then....Happy Sewing ^__*
