Hello 2011

Helloo.....this is my first post in 2011 and one of my resolution this year is MORE SEWING and less Facebook-ing....LOL..And another resolution is to learn Photography. I've been learning from the net since last month and I think I did improve abit. Please visit my photos at my Flickr album and let me know what you think...

OK, so this is my first project..Folklore Bag from One Yard Wonders. I made this as a birthday preset for my dear friend, Agnes.

So, here it is...with Longer handle than the original pattern

and zipper closure instead of magnetic snap. Finally I made it. I was really want to try zipper and after one technical error finally I did it...YAY!

This is the inside pocket....the bag is roomy enough to carry your necessities even water bottle :). It's just perfect size.

Side View. I use this interface. It gives a good & smooth finish, eventhough stitching is it a bit painful ...LOL. I mean it's not iron-on so I sort of got to hang on to it while stitching. Well, I can always stay-stitch it but just tooo lazy to do all those....Especially when attaching the zipper, handle & bag. Finally I did handstitching first then I did the machine...but all in all, I'm quite happy with how it turned out...I hope she will too...*fingerscrossed*

Thanks for dropping by....happy crafting ^_^

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 ^__*
