Craftsy News, Discount Code & Mini Zipper Pouches

Hello,

Some of you might already heard about the current Craftsy changes and although I am one of the fortunate one to keep my shop, but now only one pattern is available in Craftsy. For those of you in India, you can always buy the pattern from my Webshop.  But those who are outside India, besides Etsy, now you can also purchase the pattern in my new Pattern Shop

So, that was about craftsy and on crafting side, I made a few zippy pouches for orders last week and made some extras too for the shop.

Brown Polkadot Pouch
These pouches are just addictive to make. They are great to carry around and to gift to your friends and family. I always keep few pouches around in case I need a gift for my friends. 
One thing I know, people love handmade gifts! No matter how small it is. 

Purple Dots 

I made these cute mini wallets using the Zipper Tissue Pouch Pattern which is super easy and fast to make. The buyers wanted a padded wallet, so I use a thin batting here. It's a bit tricky since it's very small. You can make a few for your handmade market or to give to your friends. 

It's on SALE in my  Payhip Store .Use the code NEWHIP20 to get 20% off. The offer valid through 12 January 2019. So hurry up and get yours now. 


Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happy Sewing,

Doraemon and Floral Passport Covers

Doraemon Passport Cover
Who doesn't love Doraemon? He's smart, fun and full of ideas. My younger son still love watching Doraemon. Even I enjoyed watching the Hindi version, because that's how I picked up a few lines of Hindi. Sometimes I like to mimicking Nobita's Mom and my sons will rolled their eyes 0_0



 I was chatting with Shweta last week or so and I admired her neat machine binding. So I decided to try on these wallets. They turned out quite decent. What do you think?

Peach Floral Passport Wallet
The key is same like any other binding, make sure that the fabric grain is straight before you cut the fabric. I used the same width as usual, 1.5" wide, and 1/4" seam allowance. While wrapping the binding over, make sure that it covers just a little bit over the stitch line, maybe around 1 or 2 mm but not more. Using lots of wonder clips will certainly help to hold the binding in place. Stitch as close to the edge as possible. That way, on the inner side of the wallet, the stitch will fall just along the fold. 





For the floral passport cover, I used shot cotton a.k.a handloom fabric for the lining and card slot. The color just matched perfectly with the green on the floral print. Most of the time, finding the right fabric combo is the longest process. It's like finding a soulmate ;-).

Happy Sewing!

Double Zip Wallet Video Clip

Yesterday I tried to made short video clip using my Sony A5100 for the first time. I usually used my trusted OnePlus 3 phone to take videos but using a proper camera is really different. 





I recorded the video is AVCHD format which later on I learned that it will create a huge size of file. I searched on YouTube and learned how to convert it to MP4 file. Bless those people who shares important tutorials!! That's one of the first thing I learned this year. Now my camera is set on MP4 and it will be easier to transfer videos directly to my phone!

If you're an online seller, you must have heard that Video is going to be the IN thing this year when it comes to SEO. If you have not started already, you might want to teach yourself to create short clips of your products. There are many apps in App Store and Play Store you can try and experimenting! Check out more of my video clips on my YouTube Channel and don't forget to subscribe ^^.
