{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…

{ Show off Saturday} Imperfection

I had so much fun doing this scrappy log cabin blocks.  I just grabbed one piece at a time and started QAYG it.

 I didn't even bother to see if the color match. 

I added black sashing to bring out brightness of Indian cotton fabrics.
Don't you love all those brightly contrast colors? 

Here, I learned the beauty of imperfection.

couldn't agree more, Marilyn ^_^

Linky party:  Show Off Saturday 
Indian fabrics available HERE

Until then,
Happy Sewing


{Sewing Room} New Arrangement

Finally my sewing room arrangement is almost complete. The wall still bare though. I still could not make up my mind where to display the quilts and stuff I made. Let's take a tour ..... My two fabric cabinets and a trunk are placed near the entrance. I got the trunk cover made when I change the curtain. The trunk mostly I used as a "transit island" for fabrics which got sold in my Etsy shop before I put it back it its respective place ;)
And that's my sewing table with  my HV machine which I use mostly for quilting and wallet making. 

below is my cutting area and also where I put my Bernette. I use the Bernette for piecing and general sewing. In the corner is a rack which I use to store my WIP and UFO bins, it's hidden behind that quilt top (my sort of temporary display wall ^_^ )
Below the table are bins to store scraps and small batting, mostly left over batting from previous projects. 

On the left side of the room I put the smaller cabinets.  I love the vint…

Show Off Saturday : Little Pouches and Recycle boxes

I have finished these few things after I came back from the holiday.  I bought quilted purse pattern from etsy and love it. 




And I was in a recycling mood, so covered these mug boxes with fabrics and reuse the panda plastic bottle which we got from Singapore Zoo to keep my wooden buttons.

I used the boxes to keep my binding strips. 
I especially like the pin cushion. I got the idea from pinterest about re using the cello tape tube as pin cushion


Isn't that cute?
