Smaller passport holder with card wallet is back in the shop

Hello,

It's already Saturday. I hope you had a great week.  My sons started the new session with excitement. The elder one was happy because there was not so much of shuffling, which mean he has the same classmates as when he was in grade 7. The younger was a bit upset, because his besties - 5 of them- are all in a different section. But my younger son is a friendly one, so I don't worry.

Meanwhile, now my custom order is back on track. I managed to finished a couple of overdue orders and sent them out.

Card Wallet Organizer & Phone Sleeve

Meanwhile, I decided to put this smaller passport card holder back in the shop. I got several orders for the same style and will make a couple for stock.

This wallet can hold up to 2 passport. The slot can also hold boarding passes since I made the pocket quite deep. 

Details of the passport wallet interior

It has 6 card slots, with one long zipper pocket and 2 slip pockets. Pen loop and swivel hook are also added.

And of course I love my new metal label, don't you?

Handsewn binding 

I always finished the wallet binding by hand. I love the neat finish of hand sewing. It gives the look of "handmade". 

And most of customers really love it. For one wallet normally I can finish the binding within 30 minutes. 

So, what are you working on next week? I'll be working on another family passport holder, another card wallet organizer orders  and also more phone sleeve orders. 

Until then,

Happy Sewing

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? Yes..so, 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

Hello,
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, …
