Lots of zippy pouches



The birthday party went off well last Sunday and even the grown ups wanted the zippy pouch that I made to fill in the goody bags.



It was on impulse that I decides to make these zippies. I asked the birthday boy to choose the fabrics and he did.



The big bro even wanted to me to show him the sewing process. Later on I found out that he bragged abit about his mom sewing the pouch to his friends. How sweet is that! My best compliment!

A friend saw my post and wanted for her daughters, hence the pink series ^_^


Some of these pouches already up the my ETSY SHOP .
Go and grab few now, it comes in a Gift Pack of 3 

I really enjoy making pouches. In fact I always do. 


I have done few more of this pouches yesterday. 

and now, I better back to my quilt ...



pssst! don't you like all those fancy picture editor in your android? Well, I am addicted to them. recently found this pipcamera which is awesome!

until then

Happy Sewing



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? Yes..so, 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. 


when folded


I love that little hexagon there ^_^

This wallet will make a perfect holiday gift. 
Both the wallets are listed in my ETSY SHOP
Visit the shop or my Facebook Page if you want custom order


Until then

Yes, I love shot cotton

Shot cotton a.k.a handlloom cotton is perfect for any projects. I love making tunics, or quilt or anything. I have few listed in  the shop and few more is already waiting to list. 


it's simply gorgeous! it comes in prints too


simply gorgeous!!

This is what I made using shot cotton fabric. I did this for a challenge in Desi Quilters group on FB

Simple hourglass block. The fabrics was gifted by Sudha of Madras Motifs when she visited me early this year.


Don't you love this color??

here's the detail again.

I made few more in the past which you can see in my Facebook Page.

Until then







B for Boy or Blue

This is another late post. 
I made this quilt last  September for my MIL's friend. She wanted something BLUE for her grandson. And you know there are a whole lot of shades of blues.

 See what I mean???

She simply said "I want something blue for my Grandson, he's 13 years old" . hmmm...As usual, deciding the block and pattern arrangements is the most difficult part for me. I made few fabric selections and few test blocks, laid them on the floor, clicking endless pictures. Picking another set of blues, cutting and repeating until I get that "AHA" feeling.

I saved you from viewing my "WIP" photos, and here what I came up with:

I wanted something simple that has a BLUE look about it. Using a square in square block, I put owl prints in the middle and blue and yellows oval dotted prints too. 



 of course a blue dots for the back! Lucky I found this still in stock in my fave fabric shop!


and as usual, decorative quilting ^^

It was a rush work, since she's leaving for the US and will take the quilt with her. I sent her just few days before she left, and she was very thrilled and placed another order, this time it's PINK. Now, that the color that I love ^_^. 

Until then,
Happy Sewing



Vigbyor Tote for a swap

Last August we at Desi Quilter had this Tote'lly Bag Swap. It was kind of mystery swap. We knew whom to send but we didn't know who will be our sender. Plus, each participant posted their mood board as a guidance.

The tough part is to get that 'aha' moments. I have to make tote for Nikhat and she posted this mood board:


The moment I saw her board, rainbow came to my mind. I browsed a lot of rainbow bags and quilt looking for inspiration but nothing click. I wanted something not too gaudy where she can tote it around. Looked into my fabric stash n settled for my Bali batiks. Using the method of "tour around the world" block I made this tote.

Size: 18" x 16"


Well, once I started sitting in my sewing machine, ideas started flowing. I used what's left to make a little detachable zip pouch {for small change or maybe lipstick ^^}



I quilted it using decorative stitch which I love to do so much :D

 

hmm look at the vibrant colors of the batik again. I simply love these bundles!


Now, DH cousin and aunt wanted the same thing ..hmm guess everyone loves a huge tote. 

Until then...
