Why do you Blog?

One friend of mine asked me "Why do I blog"...yes why? When I started this 3 years back, it was just a curiosity. Blog was the in thing back then. Internet has always been my daily activity, whether it's just for playing games, reading articles or just chatting with friends.

Then I found out about Crafters. I was so excited since I love to be creative my self, be it simple sewing or even glass painting. I visited crafters almost everyday, from here I come across lots of crafty blogs which in the end lead me to have my own blog, here in Blogger. Then it led me from one to another and I stumbled upon Etsy. Believe me, I was so guffawed when I found about Etsy. It's always been my dream to have an online business of my own? Why? cos I can sell (and buy) things without having to leave my children.

So, now why do I blog?
1. To connect with the same minded creative people around the world.

2. To share with others - I hope by showing handmade tuff, I can inspire other people :D. Beside that I love Swapping, whether it's personal swap or through swap bot (I recently join). I love all handmade stuff. For me, when it's handmade, it's special.

3. To learn from others - I'm very grateful for people who shared their tutorial in heir blog. I can not mention all of them, but you can find most of them in my blog roll. I never made a bag in my life, and because reading all those tutorial, now I can easily make simple bags/totes/pouches. Isn't that great?

What about Advertisement? well, certainly blog is a good medium to advertise what you sell, but in the end of the day, when someone leave a nice and encouraging comments you feel most happiest person in the world, aren't you? Well, I am ^_^

What about you? Why do you blog? ^_^

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 resul…

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 :-).

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…
