WIP update

Which part of quilting is your favorite?
I love the piecing part
 putting together small fabrics into something bigger is really exciting


and playing with them in my "small" DIY design wall is so much fun



the mug rug I made as trial I gift it to my sons' piano teacher
as a thank you gift
The Big R has recently passed his 1st grade Trinity Exam with 80% marks 
He did well, in spite of him having school exam at the same time

So, I made another one for the QAL, but got carried away =,=
the size is too big!


I think I'm going to go with 9" block finished size
I got all the strips ready


Meanwhile, I finished piecing half of this quilt
another 3 sets (12 blocks) to piece
that will have to wait until I'm back from the holiday


I'm trying to get organized here
besides the small quilt projects 
I'm trying to piece at least 2-3 blocks of the bigger projects

I guess doing several projects together has its own excitement
but when it comes to quilting it
that's another story
I have 3 tops which ready to quilt 
and I don't know when I'm going to pick them up

meanwhile, if you're looking for some bundles to cheer you up
I just added Fat Eighth and Charm Packs in the shop today



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…
