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..

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.

Interested to do one for yourself? Check out Sunshine Wristlet which belongs to bagstock.com

Interested to get one for yourself with your choice of fabric in my stash.. leave a comment.

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.

Though I’ve a membership with Epal learning centre street getting my Janome sewing machine, still who didn’t like free stuff?

I’ve recently got a free Qipao pattern online as well. There is even a write up on how to do it here. You’ll find the link to the pattern in the write up.

Chinese new year is coming, why not make yourself a Qipao for this auspicious occasion.

Happy sewing you all…

Celebration month

Hello there, how’s July to all?
This is a special month for me, my birthday month. And thanks to my colleagues who threw me a surprise birthday cake. First ever birthday cake celebration in office, complete with candles and wishes ceremony, ha! Sounds big huh?

If you are following my in Insta, you would see that I’ve posted about it..

Minus the music like most people did in the restaurant like UpperStar..haha.. maybe a simple guitar solo would do, huh?

Anyway, coming back to birthday, there would be another celebration this Sunday, this time it is my turn to get ready a cake for it. Well, since I would be the one who pay for it, I will definitely get something that I love..ehhe..

Next chance in getting a cake would be just next month, another celebration, yay!

As for sewing projects, I’m currently doing another “Baby bag” using dye yarn fabric.. hopefully it will turn out even better than what I’ve made before.

Here is something that I’ve done by following the instructions through YouTube:

A very simple bag come with zipper and front pocket. Of course I’ve added more pockets inside..

Until then.. Happy July to you all..
