Zeppelin zeppelin..

zeppeline twins

Yes, this is the name of the pouch from Sara Lawson’s minikins. Yes, it looks like a mini gym bag or doess bag. So it is entirely up to you what your wanna put inside.

This pattern is like an origami piece that join together with minimal sewing but careful maneverm on the stitch line. So far, this is my second favourite pattern after the cotton candy pouch.

I tried to use different fabric in one pouch. It is not showing in the picture above, there are actually with PU leather bottom.

It is very roomy inside, which I’ve add a slip on pocket on each of the Zeppelin pouch.

There are still lot more other patterns that I haven’t tried in the minikins. Have been attracted by the Sunshine wristlet recently and it is very much welcome by my friends…

Happy sewing and have a great week ahead.

First try on a Moto Pouch

More minikins from Sara Lawson. This time is a moto pouch.. it looks like those pencil case that you can get from stationary shops. Except this one is the one and only, in the world!! Yay… LOL

I’ve been having the minikins patterns for some time now.. almost 3 months ago! And yet only now then I venture into making this minikin – Moto Pouch. It is quite an adventure. Sure enough that I’m going to make more of this using different pattern.

I personally prefer fun and bright fabric. Finger crossed that I’ll see nice fabric and hopefully affordable ones that won’t cost a dent in my wallet.

I’ll have more pouches from Minikins to show after this.. ‘cos I’m joining the 1 bag a day for 100 days. However I might just add in other patterns that is not from SewSweetness. Watch out for that.

Have a great day you all..

Minikins pouch

cotton candyBeen busy lately trying to catch up with the a bag a day challenge which started on 1st August over at Sew Sweetness FB group.

Above picture shown the cotton candy pouch in Large. I’ve changed a little bit in its design by adding vinyl at the bottom part. I’ve also added side D-ring for strap if I were to make it. However it turns out that I need way more fabric than I thought to make a handle.

The pattern call for a normal skirt or zip #3 but I’ve used a zip# 5 here.

I’ve tried using the smaller zipper on the other cotton candy pouch, and it is ok though. However, I’m going to use zip #3 more often now.

You can check out the pattern at SewSweetness.dot

Happy seeing you all..0

 

 

 

Second try on a free pattern

Hello there.. is this clutch / wristlet pattern beautiful? You can choose not to use the wristlet ‘cos you can hold it by slipping into the strap in the middle part of the pouch. Well.. the pattern also taught you how to do a wristlet. Some sewer chose to just do one of the version.

There are so many option and result over in the net. You can check out insta with the hashtag sunshinewristlet or the link here.

Where do I start?

OMG! There are so many craft idea online!! Bags, using cotton, using jeans materials, using PU, leather, cork fabric.. Gosh! I’m overwhelm! Where should I start!??

I’ve got those patterns ready, those fabric ready but still there are always some more new pattern comes up, new fabric and new ideas that pop into my head. Where do I start!?

I know the techniques, I know how to sew them up, but there are always better ways to join them together, to combine this materials with another, to sew it better, faster and more professional looking. So… which one should I be looking at? Where do I start?

There is this websites that I can check, to get ideas. There is another website that I can get free pattern, pattern on sales, pattern that I can just download after payment, pattern with videos. OMG, where do I start?

Okay, Hannie.. you’ll just have to start somewhere, stop thinking too much, just do it!

Gone too soon

Made this two nights ago and showed it to my colleagues just so I can get some feedback from them on what to improve and to know what they hope to see in this Fold-over Clutch. ‘Cos this is my first trial using PU that I bought from Epal Centre.

I, myself especially love that stripe of pattern which is all I’ve got left when I do this clutch. The key ring using the same pattern came in while I’m in the middle of doing it.

It founds it owner after I posted it in our sewing group. So glad that she loves it (sangat sangat suka) – that’s her words..haha.. I’m so happy too.

The size after folded is roundly 21 x 15 cm which keep Handphone and other stuff, maybe a folded wallet too.

Anyway, I’m so happy that he has such a good respond and quickly found its’ owner.

Note on eating out

ladies finger with damai belacan

Was in one of the local Chinese restaurant that offer good meal recently. I know this probably is not a good time to show so much meat here during this month, Good Friday is coming, remember?

However, I just want to record my gratitude here, being thankful for all the blessings that we are having now.

There was a function going on at that time and we were hiding behind the divider curtain, with speaker that couldn’t be shut down on our end as the function didn’t occupy the whole floor. Lucky that they didn’t, else we won’t be able to even have dinner there.  Amidst all these, I’ve enjoyed my time with family.

On another note, if you run out of idea what to cook, try eating out with family, I mean the more the merrier, ‘cos you can try more variety of food, hopefully you’ll get inspired in trying out new dishes too.

All these dishes are those that I normally either can’t or not able to cook and enjoy at home, cos I got fussy eater, plus .. Let’s face it, I’m not a brilliant cook (note to self).
