What I've been up to

yeah...what I've been up to? Well..nothing so exciting actually. I told you I slammed my thumb in the car's door when I went to the capital. And somehow it was so badly slammed, after a week of throbbing pain, it turned absolutely black and after a month (now) the new one started to come out and pushing the damaged one out The bad news is the other side of the nail is still sticking there stubbornly so I just cut off the one which already dangling. Now my thumb looks sooooo U*G*L*Y...but then I'm free from bandages and can work normally or so to say.

And as usual internet connection is always the constant problem. During these pre  monsoon months we experienced lots of rain and storm, which of course - as expected - in turn the phone cable got tangled or I dunno somewhere and my connection just went DEAD. I have to depend on my DH's mercy...yup, he got one of those mobile modem. So practically I got 2-3 hours a day to spend on the net. Which is NOT enough...LOL..what with that Facebook ing and (virtual) farming..:)).

Anyway, it's blessing in disguise in a way..cos I can get few sewing done. Few dresses for lil ones, few custom order tunics/dresses, and will now start some patchwork projects with those fabric remnants from the dresses. Some of them will be available in my SHOP

thanks for stopping by

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…
