{PICTURE TUTORIAL} Patchwork Zipper Pouch - Lots of pics!

In this tutorial, I use simple zipper with tab. There are several method on how you install zipper in pouch and bags. I will try to post few mini tutorial on those methods. 
You can also see the tutorial I post it in my FACEBOOK PAGE or in my GOOGLE+ album

FAQ : 1. What interfacing do you use? Interfacing depends on how you want on the look that you want. It totally depends on you. I love a soft pouches. I normally use fusible interfacing and flannel or fleece batting (that's a substitute for fusible fleece). For a stiffer pouch, I use canvas interfacing. 
2. Batting As I mentioned, I usually use flannel for quilted pouch or bag. Flannel give a good structure and enough softness. I use fleece or cotton batting for gadget cases. Sometimes, I use foam but I hate working with foam frown emoticon
3. How to reduce the bulk? Always cut your batting 1/2" smaller than the main and lining fabric. If you use a thicker interfacing, cut the interfacing 1/2" less than then main and lining fa…

This and that

Remember in my last post I made the test block for the quilt? No..no..I haven't started the quilt yet, instead, I made cushion cover for the swap in Desi Quilter's group. 


I love how it turned out I really love line quilting, I tried different kind of decorative stitches but this is my favorite

I got a nice grey cotton fabric. It's a man's shirt fabric but hey, if the color match, I'm game, right? :D
 and use this polkadot and floral as backing. This was leftover from my tunic's fabric. 
I post a picture tutorial in my Facebook Page on how to make thie 16" x 16" quilted cushion covers.

Another UFO completed

I need to stock up more mini quilts, I told DH the other day. I have few mini quilt top ready to quilt but always get distracted by so many other things. Sometimes I wish I had 5 pair of hands :D
I am not feeling too well since Saturday but my mind and hand need to keep doing something. Since I have completed the quilting and attach the binding last Friday, I only need to hand stitch the binding. So, instead of whining away, I put on my my fave drama and sewing away.

you know, not everyday I get  a matching backing fabric and I was ecstatic when I saw this green n orange cotton.

 Well, I've been playing with this pinwheel for awhile {last November or December} and just could not decide the backing. I think the saying it's true "everything happen at it's own time and place" ^_^
It's a good feeling to complete something!

It's February already

I decided to participate in  Husqvarna Viking India 2015 Quilt competition and I'm currently working on it. It's a slow progress though and no, I can't show my WIP in any online media. Yes, that's part of the rules! And me being an Instagram addict, I can only click pics and saved them in my computer *sigh* 
Wish me luck folks!! I need lots of them ^_*. 

So, how's your January going? Mine has been quite good. Thought I don't finish any major projects as yet, but slowly I'm trying to empty my UFO bins {I started few months back} and I feel good inside. 
And while I'm watching my fave Kdrama, I made few of this fabric flowers from left over bindings. I love fabric flowers and I have quite few brooches and hair pin. I kept them ready as a gift ^_^. 

I realized that everyone - yes, everyone- love handmade gift!
