Nice and Bright Quilted iPad Sleeves

I love the process of making this sleeve


The moment she said she wanted something in fuchsia, orange and blue
I started pulling fabrics from my stash
you won't believe it, Indian fabrics have a LOT of shades of fuchsia


I was like "which one is more fuchsia, should I go for the darker one or the lighter one"
she wanted something like the coasters


Once I decided on the fuchsia and orange batik, I had to pull out blue fabrics
again it was a battle for me
And I found this solid blue cotton hidden in my solid stash
just the right one!


I like to hand sew my binding
unless it's a big quilt ^o^
I always leave the hand sewing part at night
when I can quietly sew and watch my favorite drama


ah now, it's done and delivered
it's a good feeling to think that I - who live in the corner of North East India - made something for someone so far away


"if there's a will, there's a way"
Now I truly believe it! 

=============================


This iPad sleeves is SOLD but I still  have the fabrics.
If you need one, simply drop me a line in my SHOP 

I tried making cover for my button jar
not as good as I wanted it to be but that's fine ^^
(my friend Agnes said "Now even your jar is wearing a kaffiyeh" LOL")


and I made a keys cover from the little remnants. 
Someone is going to have that cover ^^. I hope she will like it.

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…

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.

Interfacing Guide for Handmade bag in India

Hello,
Today I want to share about interfacing. Not the famous brand, we don't have those branded interfacings here in India. I often receive a message asking what interfacing I used in my bags, Pouches, and Wallets.
Many of you probably already read interfacing guide by Sew Sweetness but since we - in India - don't have all those brands, we are back to square one, right?
I have been experiencing with many kinds and quality of interfacings. Which interfacing to use depends on what kind of project and what look that I want. Floppy, firm, sturdy, quilted, etc.
I recently purchase a roll of heavy woven interfacing and I am happy that I finally found it. It took me several trips to the wholesaler. He was kind enough to let me check through all kind of interfacings without asking  "what are you making, ma'am?" which is pretty much the habit of Indian (male) shopkeeper/sales person. And it always pisses me off, cos what I am making is none of his business ^^. Anyway, …
