Indigo Block Print Denim Bag

Hello, 


Alhamdulillah for a busy January. If you follow me in Instagram, you may noticed that I won't be taking custom orders this month. I like to take a break from custom orders from time to time to give myself a room for new ideas. I have a long list of sewing wishlist and one of them is this Luisa Crossbody bag. A pattern by Sotak Handmade. 


Beautiful Indigo Block Print

I wanted to make with Indigo blue fabrics and took out those three fabrics above. All are just beautiful and it was difficult for me to decide which one to work with first. After asking a few friends, we decided this middle indigo print would be the one and I loved how this turned out. I used dark blue denim as an accent fabric and decided to use ready made PU Leather strap. 

Denim & Block Print Bag

If you've been waiting to make this bag, you really should go ahead. I love the simplicity of Sotak Pattern and as usual it's always thoroughly written. 

Exterior Back Pocket

I made one change with the back exterior. The original pattern, it was two pockets but I found it's too small since I want to keep my phone in it. So I skipped the middle stitch and instead using the snap button to secure the pocket. In the pattern, the rivet was added for decorative purpose only. Now I have spacious exterior pocket for my phone!! Perfect!

Spacious Inside

The interior is very minimalist (which I love!) . The pattern called for interlining, in addition of the interfacing. I used a stiff fleece batting which I mostly used for bags nowadays and the result is sturdy bag that  can stand on its own but the interior is a bit snug. In a way it's good for me since it's quite padded. It's good to carry my camera.  
  



I think I'm quite organized and minimalist here lol. Those are the things that I usually carry everyday. The Doitrei Zipper Pouch is for my power bank, charging cable and headphone. The Zipper Tissue Pouch is for my tissue, lip balm, hand lotion and medicines (my anti allergy and indigestion tablets). Wet tissue packet, notebook and pen, small wallet and a mobile phone. I also keep small chocolates and sweets in the front pocket lol.

So that's my review of my first Luisa bag. I want to make a few more and trying different combination of interfacing/interlining. So excited!! 


Thank you for dropping by!

New Pattern - Doitrei Zipper Pouch Sewing Pattern

Hello again,

Introducing  DOITREI zipper pouch!!

Doitrei Zipper Pouch
As promised in my earlier post that I will be releasing the pattern for the triple and double zipper pouch. This time I decided to give it a name and I'm not very good with naming things. I even asked my younger one, what should I name this pouch, and he said banyan tree! Boys 0_0 

What is Doitrei? It's from Romanian Language which mean two three. Ha!!
This is a really great project to make with those scraps you keep for 'someday I use it' . 


Like this strawberry double zipper pouch. The fabrics are from this patchwork pillow and when I made them into this cute patchwork little pouch , I just loved it!!




This will surely make a great gift for anyone in your family. 




As suggested by my dear friend, Maria, I included pattern templates too.The pattern is now on 20% off both in my ETSY SHOP and WEBSHOP.  

Don't forget to use hashtag #chezviespatterns when you're posting in Instagram or facebook, so that I can find you! 

Thank you so much for your support!

Happy Sewing!

Back to school with handmade pouch

Hello,

I'm back from the summer break in Indonesia. I apologize I could not visit and reply all the comments from my last post since I had to rush. I thought of replying and reading all the post during the holiday, but it just didn't happen. 

Now I'm back in the sultry weather of Indian summer. The past few days I was busy with tidying up my home after I read about Konmari method (go and google it :D ). You may have heard, read or saw her post all over social media. I get the drift from what I read on the blog and saw on Youtube so I decided to buy her book. I'm still waiting for it to arrive, so I will tell you about it (hopefully) in my next post!

Multi Zipper Pouch

In the middle of the chaos I created, I managed to finished 4 multi zipper pouches, which 2 of them are orders. The opportunity came at the right time, just when I was thinking to sew a few pouches for stock. I was looking and considering a few options. When she DM me on Instagram, she wanted a pouch with multiple compartments and this style is just perfect.

Snoopy Denim Pouch

I always love to work with new prints. I especially love the snoopy fabrics. I recently got quite a few snoopy prints from my trip to Indonesia just because they are just too cute to pass! Like this snoopy back to school print. Isn't it too cute? 

Snoopy Back to School

I really love this colorful hearts print. This was the first multi zip pouch that I made. The pouch dimension is 8" W x 6.5" H which is so spacious! You can fit in lots of things in there. 

Pink Hearts Zip Pouch

You can even use it as make up pouch or even a passport bag! It simply versatile pouch. 

What about you? What did you sew this week? 

Thank you for stopping by,

Until then,
Happy Sewing
