Give me some sunshine

"Give me some sunshine Give me some rains Give me another chance  I wanna grow up once again" (Can't stop  humming this song from Amir Khan's 3 Idiots....)

This what I completed yesterday. I used a smaller size hexies (1") and did the simple butterfly embroidery there. This one is so cheerful with lime green and yellow combination. Inside I put white cotton with pastel color polkadots. yeah..It's yummy pouch..:D (detail pictures are in my FLICKR)
I still wanna do few more small patchwork/hexies project but I got some packing to do....wohoooo...I'm going to my home country for holiday...Yay!!..
OK, time to do a serious packing now...I hope I made enough for my friends back home...^^
have a great crafty weekends everyone...


My first Hexies

It's just a quick update. These last few days I've been sort of 'addicted' to making hexagons. I spent a loong time browsing & blogwalking and admiring all the lovelies hexies on the net. Finally I found one this this tutorial by GOLDILOKS.See, I did the 'tacking' at each corner of the folds and it saves me sometime to do the thread cutting..:D.

So far here's what I have made...I don't know yet what to make out of these...LOL. But I'm glad I didn't throw away all those fabric scraps.


and here's my first hexies pouch. I'm so in love with nanikist in flickr, how she combined the polkadots and she  inspired me to make this pouch. I put side pocket inside to keep the cards and cash. The pouch is padded with thin pellon and the lining is interfaced for sturdiness.


I'm going to make few more little hexies and hopefully can finish few stuff before I go for holiday ^_^

Thanks for stopping by & Have a nice carfty days
