{SWAP} having fun with mug rug

Second Fun is I joined this mug rug swap in Desi Quilters.
We have to make 2 mug rugs for our secret partner
Ah, it's been a while since I do swapping

I have this postage stamp blocks, so I decided to make from those blocks.
I wanted to make something modern 
and here's the result:

This was inspired by Suzuko Koseki book. I love how simplicity can be really pretty. The red riding hood was a last min addition. While I was straightening the block, I saw this Red riding hood strip peeking from my scrap bin and voila, it gives a cute addition, doesn't it?


I have a little left of the pink roses fabric and I thought it would be nice as a backing and binding.
Quilt it using straight lines 1/2" apart. 

Second mug rug, I was thinking of doing the same, then I saw the star strips from the wallet I'm making, so why not make a star roof?  


My son said "Hello Kitty in the house" (see that hello kitty in the second row?)
The grey fabrics are left over binding strips from my wallets.


so there they are
Who ever receive it, I hope it will bring some cheers in their house ^_^

One more thing
The pink bunny and cat wallet is done and delivered 


but it's still available for custom order in the SHOP

Now, I'm back on doing few custom orders due this week. 

...All I wanna do is have some fun...
...I got the feeling I'm not the only one...

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 resul…

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…
