I need a new iPad sleeve

I was cutting off jelly rolls for the shop and looking at my design wall. I made this test block a couple days ago and just put it up in my design wall


I was thinking of making mug rug with it. But then, I need an iPad sleeve. My iPad has a smart cover but it's tearing off and it's not even 6 months old =,=.
I bought it in Changi Airport for $35 >,<



So, I put my jellyrolls away and start working on it and after an hour my iPad has a new sleeve. Yay!


It fits snugly and I love the grey combination . Quilted using my favorite stitch. 

I used double batting - outer and lining to give more protection.



I still have the fabrics and I think I'll put it up in my shop for custom order.

I realize one thing:  I love working on patchwork with small squares 2.5" - 3" and HST from charm piece

Ah, I still have few WIPs that I plan to finish before the end of this month {IF I'm not distracted} . One of them is this placemat.It will be a set of 4 and I almost finish with the quilting.


and this pink bunny n cat wallet for my SIL's niece


and here's the sneak peek of the jellyrolls 


With one family wedding coming up and the little R has his monthly assessment, I hope I can finish at least those two.

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…
