Batik Passport Holder

Hello,

I finished this family passport holder last month. It was a custom order and she wanted it in Batik. Off course I was delighted. I've kept several bundle of bali batiks that I am selling in the shops for my future project. 


Don't you love those bundles?

The new bundles are all so pretty and so inspiring. She chose one from the green bundle in my Fabric Shop and I really enjoyed creating this Family Passport Wallet



I decided to combine it with a matching green poplin and going with softer color on the inside. It matched beautifully. I hope she will love it. 


For this wallet, she chose to add long zipper on one side and 2 clear pocket. Instead of the small zipper pocket like in the original pattern. 
I've been planning to make tutorial on the long zipper pocket, but still have not got the time to do it. Insha Allah when I make the next wallet, I will take  proper pictures.

Until then,

Happy Sewing


Linky Party:

2018 is HERE

Hello,
Yes, 2018 is here and I hope you all had a great New Year Party and got your resolutions written down. Me? I'm not into writing resolution. I gave up long time back. It never worked out for me. So I settle to take everything one day at a time. Be better everyday.

I didn't get time to write in December, in spite of having a few things done.

We started 2018 with a good note!! Yesterday my younger son completed his first taekwondo competition where he secured his first gold medal!! It was really a proud moment. 


My elder son will have his first piano/music concert with his music school in 2 weeks. He's been practicing a lot. (he won't let me record the video -_-)

Practice makes Perfect

And look who visited us! 

Zahra & Zoya visited us and I made sling bags for them as I promised
on their last visit a couple of months ago

Our New Year's feast
Chicken BBQ  and Indonesian Chicken Satay by yours truly.


Like they say, All's well that ends well. I hope 2018 will bring more joy and happiness to everyone. 

Until then,

Happy 2018!





Wallet Pouch Story

Hello,

I have not done any sewing since I came back from my trip to Delhi last week. I have not been well these last few days due to my usual winter rash problem and had a diarrhea for a few days. My friend, mbak Sari in Japan who owned the pretty Kanzashi shop in Etsy, told me that during winter it's better to consume food that grow under the ground. Well, I am not a fan of potato, but upon reading her suggestion, suddenly I was craving for boiled potato and have been eating potato for the last few days. I feel much better today and hopefully tomorrow I can finish my custom order due on Monday.

Anyway, I think have not shared this wallet pouch I made in October. I needed a pouch-cum-wallet which can fit it my phone, a couple of cards and a zipper compartments for cash/change.



This is my 5th wallet that turned out perfectly. There was a few ideas I tried with the previous wallets for the card slots but didn't work out as I would like it to be. Esp. the card slots. 


But I love the flower print. It's so feminine :)


My first idea is to use wristlet that the picture above. But on second thought, the detachable one would be better.




Then decided how many cards should I incorporated. Some people carry a few cards but some carry many. So, I thought 6 cards should be good enough. I am quite minimalist, I carry 2 cards and 4 cards when I travel. We don't have so many shops which offer membership cards here, and if they do, it is enough to tell them my phone number to avail the points. 

Anchor Wallet Pouch 

The blue anchor and the orange patchwork one are made slightly bigger than the floral one. As I was working on these wallets, I thought this will be a good travel wallet too. Especially for those who loves practicality and often going for solo trip.



 and if one want to go for a quick coffee with friends, a detachable medium short strap can always be added. 


Patchwork Wallet Pouch
 I am making the pattern for this Wallet Pouch, but still finalizing for a few details and need to make a couple more to try out which material combination and technique that will work best/easiest even for beginner sewist. I love wallet that is light and sturdy but easy to make.  What about you?


Until then,

Happy Sewing!
