A Kaleidoscope Bag and a Matching Wallet

The best thing about being bag maker is that you can make your dream bag! You can decide every details of the bag, whether you're using your self draft pattern or bought pattern from indie designers. 

In my case, I finally found the bag that is perfect for  me. The Luisa bag pattern from Sotak Handmade. I made the indigo block print bag last week, you can see it HERE and yesterday, I made this Kaleidoscope patchwork version.




I am so in love with this one that I parade it around the house. Today the weather was nice and bright just the perfect time to click few pictures. This patchwork version has different design on each side. 


My BFF Winda gave me the kaleidoscope block kit, I made this pouch earlier and have lots of fabrics left enough to make few more blocks.  


The kaleidoscope pocket is slightly higher than the original pattern but it turned out to be a perfect depth. 
  


As for the front of the bag, I have this panel fat quarter fabric. I forgot where I got it from but the color is just perfect for it. I must say, this bag is the fastest bag I made, in terms of choosing the fabrics. The grey fabric was also from Winda and the contrast red fabric was a gift from Mbak Tia when she went to Seoul last year. Thank you, girls <3 




And of course I have to make a matching wallet, right? 




A slim and minimalist wallet with 8 card slots and 4 slip pockets. It's based on the Passport Cover Pattern. No zipper pocket though. Now, both are ready for the trip and I better finish my packing! Japan, bring it on!!

Quilting Kaleidoscope

I think it's not too late to take note of what I've completed in 2012, in term of quilting. The most important landmark was when I started join online quilting community on Facebook, Indian MQG and Desi Quilters. 
Esp. with the later group which keep my busy the whole month with it's tougher challenge each month, QAL, quilting bees. The constant encouragement from fellow DQs made me push my self harder to better my skill. 


If I look at each one of them, I still remember every detail of work that's gone into it. Yes, every stitch has its own story...which will always remain with me ^_^


More of my work can be seen in my Facebook Page , Google+, Twitter 
or Instagram 


Yes, 2012 has been a roller coaster journey, 
I hope 2013 will bring more of important landmarks. I have few things in mind that I want to achieve this year.  Well, I can't say it cos I'm afraid it'll jinx my plan *wink wink*

Until then

Happy Sewing
