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
Happy Sewing






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…

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

 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 shopor contact me in my FACEBOOK . I'd be glad you hea…
