Blog Award

I got this award from lovely Janelle from of Pinks and Fairy Tales last month. Thanks a lot Janelle. She lives in the beautiful Phillipines with her daughter Andrea. She made lovely stuff. You should check her tutorials and you'd agree with me.

Ok, so here's the rule for the versatile blogger award:

1. Thanks the person who gave you the award.
So, THANK YOU again Janelle for the award. You really lift up my spirit..^__^

2. Tell us 7 things about your selves:
so here we go:
* I'm Indonesian who now married and settled in India for the last 9 years
* I'm a lawyer by education
* I'd love to travel the world, well maybe someday
* I love BON JOVI and have all his albums
* I mad about FABRICS and have collected quite a lot.
* I work better when my studio is in a
* My current wishlist is I-Pad (who doesn't?) but then it's too expensive here in India

3. Share the award with 15 blogs you just discovered.

Ahh..this is what I love..I spend so much time blog walking and doesnt even check my own blog sometimes. Hence I came to know about the award quite late (shame on me)..Sorry Janelle..>__<. There are just too many bloggers out there who are more creative than me. My apology I just could not name 15 of them, but here are few Indonesian bloggers whose work I love to share with you :). I don't know them personally and I just stumble upon their blog recently:

1. Hayano handmade

2. Sew Stories

3. Cemprut

So that's all...and I hope you really have a lovely crafty weekends...^___^

Warm regards from India

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.

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 :-).

Sew Serendipity's Summer flower
Until then....Happy Sewing ^__*
