Birthday & Best Girlfriends


Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends. -- Cindy Lew



Today I received these from my dear friends...whom both of them I met online. One I have met very briefly and the other one I haven't met. But we (the 3 of us) regularly talk on the phone and YM. And early this month being my birthday, both of them send me a present....the pink Indian kurta/tunic with a matching churidar (Indian slim fit pants)..which I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE and fit me perfectly. The color is so pretty and one of my fave and the chudi of course it fits me. I love anything Indian..though I realize that only after I married Mr. R ha ha..Thank you girlssss...you're the best. And yes it's 34...not 32 anymore =))

And of course the Handmade part:

# 1. the Ben 10 doll which my sons adore so much and luckily when the parcel arrived the younger one was fast asleep, otherwise they will fight over it...I know there are 2, but still they never satisfied without being argumentative about it..LOL.

I'll take this one


#2. The sarubobo pin cushion. I must say here that Agnes is very good in making all these..plush doll, et al. You should see her dragon to believe it and I literally trying to convince her to start selling online. I really hope she will do very soon. look at the saruboo, isn't it cute?

#3. The Birthday card....it's very pretty...simple but it sort of represent the 3 of us..(ok, there are 4 flowers there..*kidding*).
What I mean is, the 3 of us - Wulan, Agnes and my self - always trying to be creative in spite of all our limitation i.e time. Sewing & craft is what bound us together. We share links of tute, sharing ideas what can be made, how to make them, which fabric, how to deal with the post office people or even how to haggling with the fabricwalla (shop owner) in India..:) . Mind you, both of them never know how to sew until few months back.

Girls, I hope our friendship will last forever no matter where you are...you're always have special place in my heart...I love you both, dearly...^_^..

Ok, now let's do 'brainstorming" part again...

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…

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 ^__*

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…
