Sunbonnet Sue and DIY KIT

I was going through my UFO bins last week and found one Sunbonnet Sue Applique which I did a couple of years ago. I think it must be around 2012 or so when I made my Sunbonnet Journal Cover. I love doing cute applique once in a while. I guess now I'm being too busy that sometimes I forgot to have fun.



Now what to do with this orphan block? Well, why not just frame it!! I bought a set of frames from amazon a few months ago and still have a few small ones that fit perfectly for my Sunbonnet. I simply cut the piece to fit in the frame and voila, I got a new wall decor.

Yesterday made another drawstring bag using Indian mulmul fabrics. I cut them into 2.5" squares and sew them together. Working with lightweight fabric is challenging, so always use a smaller stitch length and proper needle size.
I did hand quilting in this bag and I love how soft it is when finished. Hand quilting definitely gives a soft cuddly feeling. Love it! I must do more :)
This time, I made box bottom type and added a D ring on the side so that I can attach a long strap and carry it as a sling bag. I am inspired by the wuxia dramas that I’ve been watching for the past few months. The bag turned out so cute!!



See behind the scenes in this video below. 




If you want to learn how to make the bag and not sure about the materials, now you can purchase the DIY KIT in my webshop. In 
I will add more DIY KIT for beginners bag makers or quilters and some will come with Pdf Patterns.
I realized that many people hesitate to start because of the lack of information regarding bag making and quilting in India. Especially for bag making, it took me years to finally found the right materials that go into creating a decent bag. 




This week, I have a couple of hand quilting projects to complete. That's my main goal for this week. I hope I won't be distracting to making other things as I just got my new Quilts Japan last week! 

Thank you for stopping by!

Stay safe & Happy Sewing
