{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

Hello,
The last two days was euphoria for me. It's the first time I got published in an online media and that too on Ecwid Blog! I was contacted by them by email early this month and was so excited about it. You can read my Behind the Scene Story in Ecwid Blog. I hope I can inspire more mothers who decided to left 9 to 5 job and pursue her dreams.

Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I got email from Patti, asking about how to add zipper pocket on the Phone Pouch. Thank you so much Patti!! Adding zipper pouch is very easy. If you already got the pattern  here is what you have to do. (if you haven't,  you can get it at the end of this post)

After you cut all your Exterior, Lining and Interfacing pieces as per pattern instructions, cut 2 extra lining pieces of Main Panel.

1. Fuse the interfacing on to the wrong side of the back exterior piece. Mark 1.5" down on one of the short end and cut.

Do the same with one of the lining piece.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Necessary Clutch Wallet

I have been searching for accordion wallet pattern and my dear friend, Namrata from Bagstock told me about the NCW and she encouraged me to try. She even added me to the NCW addict group on facebook.  After few months of watching all the ladies in the group making beautiful NCWs finally I printed out the pattern and started making one. 
The wallet is spacious, you can fit it up to 12 cards, and there is one slip pocket behind each card slot.


I added another zip pocket there and d-rings for the detachable strap. I made 1 long strap and 1 short lanyard. 
The middle part is my favorite cos you can put your mobile phone there. 


So, no more carrying your big purse when you go out for a little errand or just going for a short lunch break.

Some adjustment that I made : 
#1. The Flap 
I attached the border to the exterior flap panel by sewing the inner border to the exterior panel first. Then baste stitch the outer border to exterior before sew it together with the lini…

Ella Bucket Bag

I have this unique African print for few months. The print is huge. I put up for sale in my facebook page Chezvies Fabrics for a long time and there's no taker :(



I believe that all my fabrics will come of use someday {I think all the hoarders have the same believe ^_* ) and it's true. I was browsing Etsy for Totebag and found SOTAK handmade's pattern, The Ella Bucket Bag, and I know that it's perfect for my fabric.



Svetlana's pattern is very thorough and easy to follow. With step by step pictures which is a huge thing for me. I am one of those who cannot follow written instructions. So having step by step photo tutorial is really a big help.

I made few improvisation here, because of the print I decided to put the zipper pocket inside and I skipped the inner pocket.



And for the magnetic snap, instead of attach the snap onto the bag, I made a little button flaps and attach it to the bag. Since the fabric I use is Indian mulmul fabric which is quite lightweight, at…
