Some Bundle of Joy

Blue & White Bundle 


How's everyone doing? I hope you enjoy your summer this year even though you maybe just stay at home like me :D. The good thing is this year finally we put an AC in the living room which opens up to my drawing sewing room. So, I can do my work pretty comfortably during the summer, which can be very humid. 

Another good thing is I have time to update my shops in Etsy as well as my Website with a few face masks and fabrics. When you're a solopreuner, running your small business from the drawing-room, it can be quite overwhelming sometimes, especially now with everyone is doing work/class from home. I will add more fabric bundles in the next few weeks, maybe a few bundles at a time. Creating a fabric bundle is fun because I just love Indian prints and colors. A few days ago, someone asked for black and white fabric which I posted on Instagram Reel and asking if I have another black and white. While pulling out fabrics, I realize that even in white there are so many shades :D

Sometimes, I get inspired and started making stuff, like these few 3D face masks using my own pattern. I use a couple of them and I must say it's the most comfortable masks! So lightweight and breathable. I either use cambric or poplin cotton for the lining because they are more tightly woven which is good for filtering. Even the triple-layer mask is still very comfortable.

In between, I managed to sew a couple of scrappy blocks from my 2.5" box. I haven't got time to continue my granny square quilt yet, but here I am started another scrappy project. This one doesn't need so much planning though. After looking at #scrappysquaresewalong on Instagram, I am so inspired to start one. Well, I'm not good at following a challenge or a quilt along. So, I'll do it at my own pace and will not stress over the deadline. It's supposed to be fun activities for me. 
The block is scrappy 36 patch blocks (I love the first one I made) and I finished around 8 blocks now. I make 4 mini  9 patch blocks and then put them together. Sometimes I only able to do 1 mini blocks and sometimes I can finish 3 or 4 mini blocks. 
I'm getting more addicted to making scrappy patchwork. For now, 2.5" squares is my fave cut. I don't cut them all at once, but I try to cut more frequently and I am so happy now I have more varieties from the remnants of the mask :D





                    


If you'd like to see the fun scrappy bundle, check out my Etsy Shop or on my WEBSITE.  I ship internationally from website too via DHL or sometimes FedEx if the customer prefers it. I'm so glad I got the DHL account done and I've been shipping out regularly now. I'll talk about my experience in my next post! 




Thank you for stopping by today, stay creative & stay safe!

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

Linky Party: 

Going scrappy ...

Are you on Instagram? well, I love spending few mins everyday looking at crafty people post across instagram.

 one day I saw this cute scrappy mini 9 patch block from Karamatsews . It was  QAL started by Heather of Houseofalamode 

I took out a little but of my scraps {I have 2 huge bins full of scraps..eeww } 


I admit, the cutting was the toughest part 
I spent almost 2 hours  sorting out and cutting 2" squares 

and after a little bit rest with cream crackers and herbal tea
I made these


aren't those cute? 

If you like, go and join the fun
make  one block at a time

it can be as a stress buster or as a happy ending after a day's work
or when you feel low 
it's good for mindless sewing {mmm I don't know if it's the correct term}



what I like most is every little scrap in these blocks have its own memories
remnants from my sewing journey 
when I see it, I was like
"oh, this is from the dress I made for so and so"
"Those are from baby quilt I made for so and so"



Now go and find #scrappypostagestampqal in Instagram and be inspired ^^

Until then...

Happy Sewing
