Travel Wallet Journal Covers

Snoopy Passport Cover


I like to improvise with my own patterns and recently I made these 3 kinds of travel wallets from This Pattern

The Snoopy wallet was a custom order and she wanted an additional zipper pocket and this is my current fave zipper wallet to make. (I'm working on the tutorial! so make sure to subscribe to my blog so you won't miss it! )



Besides that, I added 1/4 inch on the length and width from the original pattern, so that it fits nicely for the B6 Size Notebook. I realized that when I travel, I always carry a small notebook to doodle or just to write down ideas or my thoughts. As much as I like the notebook app on my phone, I still prefer a real book to write on. And this is just perfect. Oh, I can't wait to travel again!! 



For the Paris journal cover below, I used elastic for closure. As it is more convenient, I suppose. The wallet can pack quite a lot too. I can fit 2 passports in one sleeve and the other sleeve for the notebook.

And another one with flap closure. If you'd like to make one with outer flap closure, cut the flap fabric 2" W x 8" Long and all purpose interfacing 2" W x 7.5" Long. Once you iron the interfacing on the fabric, fold the long edges towards the center, and then fold the flap crosswise so that the short ends meet. Topstitch along the three edges, leaving the raw edge unsewn.

See, you can do so many varieties with just one pattern. I had my shared of failed experiments but that's how I learn.

A few more Kantha quilts



I made a few more small Kantha quilts last month but have not written about them here. I made a larger version of the moonshine and valentine, the size of placemats. I am still using shot cotton fabrics and using Anchor Pearl cotton no. 8. I got a few pearl cotton threads from my SIL and luckily I keep them. 


I still have a few placemats to quilt with more fun colors. I hope I can finish them soon. I got sew easily distracted doing other projects :D




And here are another rectangular Kantha coasters that I finished and added to the Shop. And still using handloom cotton. I really love the handloom border and since some of the handloom fabrics only have one side borders, these coasters are very limited in stock.

what is your fave tea?




Great for your mug or indoor plant mat

And here are a few in floral print and tie-dye combo. 

I had so much fun making all these mini quilts. Handloom ones are rather hard to quilt, but the floral ones are easier and I can finish it quickly while catching up on my Cdramas :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a lovely day!
