Introducing Weekly Newsletter


Yes you heard it right! I will start delivering Newsletter this coming Wednesday. 

Newsletter has been in my bucket list for quite sometime. Even though I already have subscription via feedburner provided by google, I feel I need more platform to share. There are so many things that sometimes one blog post is not enough. Hence the Newsletter.

You can sign up RIGHT HERE 

I started doing some reading and research and came across Abby's Blog - While She Naps  where she wrote about how to create powerful newsletter.

I was waiting for my sons in their music classes when I came across the blog and decided to buy the e-book. It's fantastic book! If you're a mompreneur and have no idea how to start your first email list, this is the book you must have. Abby even replied to my questions promptly! Thank you so much, Abby!!

Last weekends I was writing notes from the book and started working on my mailchimp and sending out test message to my friends ( thank you Namrata, Agnes, Vonney!! - group hugs to you all - xo). And now it's ready for the First Issue on Wednesday.

While I was writing the content, I realized how much I enjoyed it. It reminded me of the era before the internet. I always like writing diaries and letters to old and new friends. That habit continued after email was widely used and that was how I met my DH ! (ha, now that little secret is out! *blushing*) 

If you want to get all the handmade news sent weekly directly to your inbox and read it while you're having a cup of chai, you can sign up at the end of this post

Until then,

P.S. For you who already signed up (thank you!!), I included a surprise gift inside the Newsletter

Tutorial: Make your own flowing skirt

I remembered when I just passed college and was looking for a job. One day I got a letter for interview in another city very far from my place. I was frantically trying to put together my clothes but what I really needed was missing. Yes, A SKIRT. I had this blazer but with no matching skirt. I spent half day mall hopping with no result. So I decided to buy a fabric and made my self a SKIRT. And off I went for the interview.
So, if you happened to be in the same situation like I had but with novice skill of sewing, what would you do? Exactly make a skirt for yourself...:D. Here's the simplest way to make your self that flowing flirting skirt. Ok, shall we start now...

What you need:
* 1.5 meters of fabric (if you want the flowing flirting one, try crepe or poly cotton fabric) * Sewing notions: scissors, pin, newspaper, measuring tape, pencil, thread, etc and of course a sewing machine:) * elastic
How to:
1. Measure your HIP + 2" (for wiggle room) + 1 " (seam) .  My result…

Everyone needs Family Passport Wallet

Oh yes, I know how it feels carrying 4 passports, residential permit, marriage certificate, exit permit plus my PIO card while travelling. Not to mentions the tickets - several of them since we always have to have several stop overs >_<.  The options I have are store bought leather passport wallet or the one from the travel agents, which barely survived one trip.

So, why not make one?, benchmarking from the store bought wallet, here's my straight and simple {and cute} Family Passport Wallet

This wallet can hold up to 6 passport and spacious long pocket on the sides to keep your travel documents and small change. 

It has a small swivel hook for your luggage keys (yay)
I used Indian cotton fabric and heavy interface. It's sturdy and  a wide velcro closure will keep everything in place. 
Another one I made was using this cute hot air balloon over the Eiffel Tower fabric. Bought them from this shop during my trip back home last July.

Interfacing Guide for Handmade bag in India

Today I want to share about interfacing. Not the famous brand, we don't have those branded interfacings here in India. I often receive a message asking what interfacing I used in my bags, Pouches, and Wallets.
Many of you probably already read interfacing guide by Sew Sweetness but since we - in India - don't have all those brands, we are back to square one, right?
I have been experiencing with many kinds and quality of interfacings. Which interfacing to use depends on what kind of project and what look that I want. Floppy, firm, sturdy, quilted, etc.
I recently purchase a roll of heavy woven interfacing and I am happy that I finally found it. It took me several trips to the wholesaler. He was kind enough to let me check through all kind of interfacings without asking  "what are you making, ma'am?" which is pretty much the habit of Indian (male) shopkeeper/sales person. And it always pisses me off, cos what I am making is none of his business ^^. Anyway, …
