{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…

Simple Guide : How to Set Up a Facebook Shop

Hello,

Today after lunch, I was just lazing around on the sofa and browsing Facebook. I was checking my Facebook page when I realized that my CHEZVIES SHOP tab was not visible on the mobile app? What is this??? I got up and turned on my laptop and it was there! On the top.

Oh, Facebook!! what are you playing this time??

So, Facebook has its own shopping app or whatever you call it, if you connect the 3rd party e-commerce app, it will look good on the website version but NOT on the mobile version. I hope I make sense here.

The picture below is the website version of my facebook page. See the red underlined CHEZVIES SHOP tab. That's where I embedded my Ecwid Store.



and here what the Facebook Page look on the Mobile App. The chezvies shop tab is missing. The SHOP tab (which is the facebook shop) is there prominently.



So, what's the solution? I set up the Facebook Shop with a link to my website!! 

If you only sell on facebook, then direct the checkout process to the facebook messenger. Which mean the potential buyer will have to contact you personally to purchase. 

Now, I assumed you already have your Facebook Page and Website (it can be any e-commerce site, Etsy, Ecwid, Shopify, etc).

Here what you have to do

1. Change your facebook page using a  Shopping Templates

Setting ---> Edit Page ---> Choose shopping ---> view details and apply


2. Once done, the chance is the Shop Tab is already turned on. If not, scroll down and switch it on the SHOW SHOP TAB.

You can arrange the tab by clicking the 3 bar on the left side of the tab and drag it up or down.

3. Go back to your facebook page and click the SHOP, agree to the T&C and also you can choose your currency at this stage. Now you can start adding your product. Fill up the form and photos accordingly.


Don't forget to give the link for the checkout. If you already have a website or an online store, it will be so much easier for your customer.
You can share your product from your page to any groups. It will direct people to your Facebook Page as well as your website. So it's like killing 2 birds with one stone, right?

Since most people using Facebook on their mobile, when they visit your facebook page, the first they see is your Shop Section/Product. 



Let me know what you think in the comment below. I'd love to hear from you. 
If you think this tip is good for your friends, feel free to share it. 
Sharing is caring ^^

Now, I must go and set up my Facebook Page and hopefully will see you there too!

Until then,

Happy Sunday

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.

I love that little…

Fabric Flowers

After 2 weeks of making little dresses, yesterday I was browsing the net and found lovely Tutorial on Fabric Flowers. Laurie of Tip Junkie collected few tutorials from across the blogsphere to share with us freely. Thanks a lot Laurie.
There are several fabric flowers tutorial but Multi Petal Flower   from  Sew Ritzy Titzy  I love the most.




If you like ruffled flower, you can try Sew Serendipity's summer flower. I'm yet to try that one. But I'm surely will give it a try. it looks so pretty & better than yoyo...ehm..I love yo yo flower simply because it's easy and fast to make, since I'm always in a hurry :-).
