Yuwa Crossbody Bag and Evening Purse

Hello,

Yuwa Micci Collection Bag
Cutting a fave fabric really make me nervous. Because nothing should go wrong. I was thinking for a few days what projects would be best for this Micci Collection from Yuwa Fabrics that I bought from my trip last year. 

Purple Wristlet

I have 4 colors in the same print, I chose this brown background first to make a clutch using the same pattern as the Monochrome Wristlet. I used grape color handloom fabric as accent fabrics. 

To complete the look, I added a short PU leather strap which has pretty pink flowers on it. It  makes a perfect evening bag!

Kawaii Sling Bag

The second one, I wanted to make a mini sling bag. I made a pouch with similar pattern before, this time I made it slightly bigger. Maybe I will tweak the pattern again and make it a medium size one. What do you think?




But I love how this cute cross body bag turned out. I can fit in my One Plus 3 phone nicely and the interior zipper pocket, can be used to keep cash or cards. 

I added both the evening bag and the small sling bag in my Etsy Shop. I'll be adding more  products using fun prints in the next few week, Insha Allah. I need to sew all those pretty fabrics, right?  

What about you? What is your recent finished project? 

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a nice day!

Patchwork Quilted Cross Body Bag

Hello,


When I went home to Indonesia last July, I bought fabric scraps and lots of them. Hubby and my mom were wondering what I am going to do with the extra baggage. Well, I could not just leave those pretty prints behind, right? 

I've been wanting to make another quilted sling bag after the previous ones, HERE, HERE and HERE

Yesterday, I started to take out my floral scraps and got down to work.  I cut the strip 1" wide and piecing them on my Jack machine. The finished tiny strip blocks are 2 1/8" square. 


I always excited to work with small blocks!! 
The plan was to make 2 big pieces for front and back. Then I changed my mind because I want an exterior pocket. 

Because exterior pocket is always handy, right? I thought of  using magnetic snap as closure but on second thought, it's better using zipper closure. 


On the back is the full patchwork panel! I really love this full panel look! Well, it's always nice to have 2 pretty sides! 



For the side gusset I use the same plain linen as the front panel one. For the sides I just did wavy lines quilting and one the main panels, I did grid quilting. 


When in doubt, grid quilting is always the best choice.


This time, instead of top zipper closure, I did recessed zipper and I am happy that I did! 


I added interior zip pocket too. I thought of adding slip pocket, but after using many sling bags, I found that slip pocket is not really useful (at least for me). I always prefer a simple interior in bags. 


The bag finished at 8"W x 9.5" H x 2" D 
A perfect size for travel cross body bag, right? It can easily fit in the passport covers, wallet, mobile phone and pocket camera.

What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a nice day

Monochrome Wristlet Clucth

Hello,




The weather is getting cooler and it's perfect weather to try new stuff. I've been working steadily to freshen up my shop with more products. I made a few pretty floral wallets and also new passport covers . More stuff with new prints are coming up soon!

Last week I made this  monochrome wristlet clutch. I got the plaid fabric from my trip to Shillong a few weeks ago. 


While working on this clutch, I googled about plaid, tartan and check fabrics! I was just curious and right enough, plaid and tartan is different in the sense that tartan is the design and plaid is the garment. At least originally that was the meaning.

Interior Zippered Pocket

But in some discussion, people agreed that plaid is the North America  term for tartan.  And tartan was supposed to be colorful. So I am wondering what should I call this black and white one?

Anyway, I am very pleased with this wristlet and the size is just perfect for evening bag.  It has interior zipper pocket too,  very useful to keep your important stuff. You can find the Free pattern HERE.

What do you think?

Have a nice day,
