{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

Hello,
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.

Queen Bee - My Double Star Block ^o^

I was the Queen Bee of January 2013 in my quilting group Desi Quilters. I was so excited and I already hearted  this block I saw on Flickr, but could not find any tutorial about it. 
So, I sat dawn and drawn my own based on the picture I saw on Flickr.  I called it Double Star block. This quite simple to make. 
First, here’s what you need: 1 - Background color  is BLACK 2- Star colors: 2 CONTRAST COLOR and use ONLY SOLID
So, here we go :
THE CUTTING: BLACK fabric: -Cut  4 ½ “ x 4 ½ “ -  4 pcs -Cut 4 ½ “ x 2 ½ “  - 8 pcs -Cut 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 4 pcs
SOLID  contrasting color: -Color  #1 : 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 7 pcs -Color #2 : 2 ½” x 2 ½ “ – 7 pcs
Finished block: 12" x 12" 



THE METHOD: 1.Making flying  geese:
Take 4 BLACK 4 ½” squares and take 4 pcs of each 2 ½” squares of solid and make into 4 flying geese .





Remembering Autumn

I love to watch the nature changes its color in Autumn. In this side of India (NE India) we don't see much of those lovely colors. Except the colors of the olive leaves in my garden and the star fruit tree, but still it was something. 

I made this mini quilts as an entry for Diwali Challenge in Desi Quilters and  made it to the top 4 yay ^o^

and these combination of yummy fabrics is available in my etsy shop
There are so many things I want to share here with you all. It just that life gets busy sometimes and as much as I like to write now, I must go back to my beloved Ms. Bernette and finish the custom orders.
Until then... Happy Sewing
