{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

The last two days was euphoria for me. It's the first time I got published in an online media and that too on Ecwid Blog! I was contacted by them by email early this month and was so excited about it. You can read my Behind the Scene Story in Ecwid Blog. I hope I can inspire more mothers who decided to left 9 to 5 job and pursue her dreams.

Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I got email from Patti, asking about how to add zipper pocket on the Phone Pouch. Thank you so much Patti!! Adding zipper pouch is very easy. If you already got the pattern  here is what you have to do. (if you haven't,  you can get it at the end of this post)

After you cut all your Exterior, Lining and Interfacing pieces as per pattern instructions, cut 2 extra lining pieces of Main Panel.

1. Fuse the interfacing on to the wrong side of the back exterior piece. Mark 1.5" down on one of the short end and cut.

Do the same with one of the lining piece.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Applique Table Runner

This table runner finished few days back, together with the red dress in my previous post. I used cotswool fabric which I bought last winter. I love the tartan cotswool and I got quite a few small pieces from my regular shop.

I used polycotton lining which is very soft. It was the only fabric I had which matched the main runner..:D.
Now, thinking of making cushion covers to match. I guess my mom would love this ^__^

Until then...Happy Sewing

Trial Dress

This is actually pattern trial :D. I got few custom on baby dresses so I decided to make a trial version first. And here's the first result...

Peterpan collar with rickrack

Button down closures at the back

White ribbon with rickrack at the bottom

and now I'm in the middle of the second trial...

So this week is gonna be a busy week for me...
