Red Riding Hood Tote Bag

This is also a custom order from the Exotic Lady (that's her boutique's name) - the story in my previous post . She wanted a pink tote bag /diaper bag. 

I have this red riding hood fabric from my trip last year which she chose. It has a drawstring closure which is very convenient for diapers bag. 


I match it with a dark grey cotton. I used interfacing and batting for this bag and it's perfect. It's sturdy and soft. 


a wide box bottom give it enough space to carry baby's stuff around. 



polkadots is always my favorite lining. it gives a happy aura ..or is it just me ^_^


and of course my fave hexies has to be there. I spy Red Riding Hood hexies ^_^

Until then

Elephant quilts

There was a little handmade shop in my town run by a very talented lady. She has a bakery and a handmade baby stuff  shop. The shop though small is very beautifully decorated. She made baby dresses, mostly for newborn to about 2-3 years old baby.
I often visited the shop but never met her. And in one evening when I dropped by to pick up some pastries, I went inside her little shop and met her. We talked and I showed her the pictures of what I've been doing. Well, long story short, she liked my handmade stuff and ordered few stuff for her daughter who's expecting a baby. Her daughter likes elephants and I happen to have this pretty elephant fabrics which will be perfect for her. I mixed and matched it with stripes and dots.



She wanted a summer quilt. We discuss all the possibilities and we decided to put a layer of solid cotton as a batting, instead of the usual batting and use mulmul cotton at the back.



this quilt is perfect for spring or summer. I quilted in the ditch around the squares.

I still have more fabrics and if you want the same quilt I'd be glad to make a custom order for you. Simply for to my shop in ETSY

For the fabrics you can get from the following shops:

Indian Mulmul/cotton fabrics : Chezvies Fabrics
Cute printed cottons : Moymoik Fabrics

Until then...Happy Sewing





Back to Quilt ~ for a baby boy

It's done! 

A friend of mine was expecting a baby boy and  few months ago she asked me to make a tote bag for her using Indian cotton fabrics. 

I've been busy making passport wallets for the past few months and enjoyed it tremendously. 

And here's what I came up with

peacock blue and dark grey combo

 The bag has a drawstring closure. I was thinking of using zippers but as diaper bags drawstring seems to be more versatile since you can fit in more stuff without worrying about the zippers. 

With the bag I made a matching mini quilt. 

it's 30" x 30" which is perfect for new born.
It's meant for spring/summer weather so I used flannel batting. It turned out very soft.


one more shot


I've been using flannel batting for few quilts that I made and I like it, esp for my kind of weather which is quite humid during the summer.
It's a perfect covering in AC room during the summer months ^v^ .

If you need the fabric, you can visit my shop or contact me in my FACEBOOK .
I'd be glad you hear from you.


Until then...
