Last bit of monsoon

or not really...

It's been raining continuously for the past few days
 It was hot and humid last week
 Well, I guess monsoon lingers a bit longer this time

Tomorrow the school will remain closed due to water logging in the city
Since half yearly exam is going on, I guess this is the best option
otherwise few students will have to miss the exam

So, what is your favorite during the monsoon?
Well, me...I love to sip homemade herbal tea. My current fave is rosemary and thyme.


and reading some good book
or browsing Pinterest for ideas
or watching funny K drama ^_^

yesterday I was looking for  Shabby Chic ideas
and found these


Love that simple floral quilt
I I watched  one like that in one of the K drama last week ❤

I love the green tone fabrics in this one and the pillow..oh so pretty!!

So, I pulled out few fabrics too yesterday
still thinking what should I make


I love some simple and more traditional quilt
I guess you must have noticed that too

it always takes me hours and maybe days to finally settle for one design or print
sometimes when I am in a hurry to finish
I always end up not very happy with the result :(

So this time, I'm taking my time 

Meanwhile, I just finished one wallet for a friend's daughter in Indonesia
I will post that tomorrow


Until then...

Happy Quilting

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…

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 :-).

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.

I love that little…
