Handbag and Wallet set - a gift set for Mom

Hello,
When Namrata showed me her (then) new pattern of Rose Handbag, I knew I will make one for my mom. I could not test it at that time because I hurt my pinky and could not do any sewing that needed "birthing".
And a few days ago I finally got down to make one. My mom loves florals, and she loves Blue and Red. So I picked this Japanese linen with Red Rose print. But of course, I have to make a set, with the trifold women's wallet.

I made a reversed version from what the pattern called. I used solid linen for the main body and accented with floral linen just because I want the flap in floral ^^.

This bag surprisingly quite spacious. Besides the zippered flap, it has a slip pocket which I find it very handy. I also used a cute snap button I got from my re…

Ikat and Pinterest

Hello,
Don't you love Pinterest? I know I do. I get lots of inspiration from there. I love a casual and loose fitting dress or tunic. I really want to make something with Ikat Fabrics. Ikat always fascinates me, be it hand woven or printed one. It simply beautiful. 

I browsed Pinterest and found these  red ikat dress  and the white ikat dress that I really love.

It will ber perfect for summer, but I will need a longer sleeve since I am wearing hijab ^^. 
Maybe this Blue one will look great for summer. 

or this White and Indigo one?
