{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.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Little Girl Kaftan

This is what I completed last week. I love the simple design and the easy pattern. The yellow trimming is a surprise addition. I was thinking of using solid white but then I saw this yellow fabric peeking out from my cupboard.


Here's the detail of the sleeve
What do you think?





Look!!

My simple little tunics are ready. Yay! It will be available in the SHOP soon. 

I'm thinking of starting children clothes more seriously since I enjoy making them. I started end of last year with dirndl dress, but had to stop in between due to my MIL's illness. For me, family always comes first, no matter what.  I've got few simple pattern ready and even picked up the fabrics. I just need to be more organized and  focus. Now, I'm working on a few custom orders for local customer and hoping to make a couple set for the shop too. Let's see....
Until then,
Happy Sewing




Happy Mother's Day

To all mamas out there. These super cute cards are handmade by my sons. ♡♥

TUTORIAL : Twisted Infinity Scarf

Everyone loves infinity scarf. It's the "grab n go n look fab" kind of accessories. So, recently I've been making my version of infinity scarves. You can use any kind of fabric, cotton, flannel, georgette, crepe, chiffon, etc.  I happened to have these saree blouse fabrics which I got from my MIL. Saree blouse comes with the saree. It's usually less than a meter (80 -90 cm) of fabric which has to be cut off from the main saree. 
I thought of sharing with you how I made my scarves. This is a quick project which make a perfect gift. So, here we go:
What you need: 1. A piece of fabric (depends on how WIDE and LONG of your scarf). and since I'm making from a saree scrap my piece is 80 cm x 115 cm

2. Sewing machine and sewing supplies (matching thread, handsewing needle, etc)
Let's get started:
1. This is my fabric. It's georgette fabric with fancy dots ;). Make sure you straighten your fabric, which means BOTH ENDS have the SAME WIDTH. 


2.  Now, FOLD it o…

New Mantra and 2 minis ^_*

I recently finished 2 mini quilts. I guess I enjoy making the minis than the big one. How about you? The thing is I have so many things I want to try making but there's NEVER enough time. Though now the kids spends longer time in school and they come back home at 3pm, still I could not spare more than 1.5 hrs on sewing/quilting.
I'm the type who can not start working unless my house is properly cleaned and everything is back on its place. But I guess now it's time to apply this new mantra :D


before I became obsessed with the never ending dust blowing from the river bank. 
Now, about my minis, here's what I finished recently.
Green Red with cherry and strawberry. 

I really love using this decorative stitch. It's stitch #15 in my Bernina Bernette e92c.


Second one is this one. Yes yes I know..I cut a whole bunch with {intention} of making a big quilt. But  I sort of losing my focus, because as I mentioned in my previous POST, this card tricks block is actually TRICKY …
