Compact Passport Cover with Card Holder

Hello,


I have been working on this idea for quite sometimes now. I wanted a compact passport cover (a better version of the previous one), which can be slipped into a sling bag  while traveling. 

Love this Cowboy theme

This passport sleeve is pretty slim. It fit in to my sling bag nicely. I don't use too many layers of interfacing here. A layer of heavyweight interfacing for the main wallet exterior only.

Unique Kalamkari Passport Cover
(ETSY)
The vertical card slots are very handy to keep your ID card and frequent flyer membership card. As you know, I love using binding for my wallet, because I love the handmade look of it. Besides, we can play with fun binding to make it one of a kind product. 

Snap Button Closure

It took me a while to decide what closure I want. I knew I wanted something that is easy to install and if possible easy to mend. Then I remembered the magnetic closure I used in this Ella Bucket Bag and 241 tote bag, and decided to use the same method. It works out perfectly. Yay!!


This a pretty quick project. It took me a little more than 1 hour to finish one. I could finish it faster, if I don't watch my Korean Drama while sewing :) . All the new passport covers are now available in ETSY as well as  in my WEBSHOP

Until next time,

Happy Sewing,

Sunday Stash 10 - Indigo Fabrics

Hello,

Indigo is everywhere! Whatever you make, it will look stunning, from dresses to bags, etc. 

Small Floral Block Print Cotton


I recently added a couple of Indigo blue fabrics in my ETSY SHOP and CHEZVIES SHOP (India only). The indigo based with small floral above will be prefect for dresses or even a pouch or a quilt. 

I really love this white based with big floral. It is a soft cotton which I think would be great to make a wholecloth quilt or a pillow cover.

White Based Indigo Floral 

Another fave is this small print floral. It's block print linen fabric. I made a passport holder for order with the same fabric. 


Floral Indigo

Floral or Geometric Indigo Fabric

Triangle Light Indigo Cotton Fabric



Indigo Chevron Mudcloth

Or even unique novelty and nature prints.

Scrappy 9 Patch Pillow

Hello,


I mentioned in my previous post about the #100dayproject that is going on in Instagram. I decided to play along and sewing up my scraps, UFOs, and PHDs. 
It feels so rewarding when I able to complete something that has been in my UFOs box. Like these Pillows I made last week. 

This week, quilty wise I finished this modern 16 x 16 inches scrappy 9 patch cushion cover. 

Scrappy Patchwork Pillow
I have a small jar of 2" squares which I collected for quite sometimes. I made a couple of 9 patch blocks from them. Some of them, I turned it into mug rugs for a swap.  And a few coasters which I gave them away. 

So last week, I decided to make a dent to my 2" jar and started piecing them into 9 patches, while watching my kdramas. Luckily there are so many good korean dramas to keep me company. 

Work in Progress

This patchwork top is totally made of scraps, right down to the black and white stripe borders, which came from my wallet binding scraps. I add sashing to the 9 patched and added long border. I really love this black and white stripe. I will need to get a few yards next time when I go to Indonesia. I used it alot for wallet. When nothing else work, black and white stripe always the solution!


I am using fleece batting for this pillow which I got from Tina of the Square Inch. Quilting it using straight line quilting on my jack sewing machine while watching Love in the Moonlight drama. I know, it's an old one (2016 drama) and I don't usually enjoy period drama, but Park Bo-Gum and Kim Yoo-jung are just too cute together. 


The back of the cushion cover is a colorful floral cotton fabric. I'm glad I saved up the last piece of this fabric, it matched perfectly. 

Envelope Closure

This pillow will make a cute decorative pillow in the living room or a baby room. I added this cushion in my Etsy Shop and also in my Indian WebShop. There are still many scraps I need to sew and I am so excited to sew smaller projects like this. 

Meanwhile, I made a small progress with the scrappy log cabin. I finished 3 color blocks so far. I hope I will be able to add one or two color blocks this weekends. 



Until next time,

Happy Sewing

Patchwork Pillows

Hello,

Pink Patchwork Cushion

I finished a couple of pillow covers this week. Small quilts are really fun to make and if you browse in Pinterest you will find so many ideas of small quilts. I personally love making cushion covers. I always using one around the house. 

Pinwheel Patchwork

I really enjoy making the pinwheel pillow above. I made the pinwheel block based on Missouri Star Quilt tutorial on you tube. I quilted in a ditch around the center block and then do diamond/diagonal quilting on the pink border. The pillow cover is finished with black and white stripe binding to give a modern look. The pillow cover closed with envelope style closure. 

Purple Pink Pillow
 The pink and purple above is another favorite color. I have the blocks from previous quilts and the size is perfect for cushion cover. I quilted using wonky stitch. I find a simple quilting lines is best to highlight the quilt block.

Quilted Decorative Cushion

A matching pink cotton fabric at the back with a strip of purple polka dots.

Green Block Print Pillow
Some fabrics are too pretty to chop, just like this green one.  I used flannel batting for most of my single cloth quilting cushion cover. If you use flannel, you don't really need to add another backing. The cushion covers will have a just perfect structure. With dense quilting, it will last for along time.


And I love different pop up pillows on my sofa and chairs. Handmade cushion covers are always the best, they are long lasting, unlike the mass produce one which at the most will last for 3 washing. Especially if you have teenage boys who always think that pillow is a ball which they can toss or throw around. All the time.

What about you? What is your fave pillow?

Until then,

Happy Quilting
