[patch strip cushions]

Ordered a half pound scrap from reprodepot during my last spree. It's great for making little projects like this! White pieces are from leftover egyptian cotton bedsheet i first cut up for the handstitched quilt.

the completed piece with G for scale :)

A Cosmetic Pouch for Moi

I did this pouch a few days ago. I did the zipper with the help from this tutorial. I also used the sewing technique from the same tutorial to do the insides.

Again, fabric is a RAK from Charlene. Yes, yes, it's time I get my own fabrics. LOL!!!!!

Oh. Did I mention that I hand-stitched this pouch too? Kekekekeeee!!

Thanks for Looking.

Denim & Leather

oopsie...sorry for not being able to join in the projects but i enjoy looking at everyone else's creations! your bags and dresses and everything are all so gorgeous!

a simple bag i did this afternoon. i've always loved the combination of denim and leather :) leather was handstitched and only used the tools in photo. denim cloth was machine stitched. this would be just nice for me to carry my books and magazines.

A Super Late Entry for Project #2

I came across this website - Tiny Happy Shoulder Bag Tutorial. It looks easy enough. So decided to give it a try, but on a smaller scale.

And this is what I came up with.
Front View
Side View

Inside View
Fabrics are RAK from Charlene.

It's a tad smaller than I expected. But still usable. So gonna use it for lunchtime at work. But 1st get the velcro to "seal up" the bag.

Thanks for Looking.

Dresses for my two daughters

I made these two dresses mid June for a friend's wedding. Used the tutorial on the sun dress but could not get the shirring right so I modified.

The shrugs that the two girls are wearing, they are also self knitted...but not by me. I bought it from a lady who was selling her crafts on the pushcart.

#3: Swap

sorry for the being late on this one! :)

How about a little swapping fun? We'll swap something simple, nothing that will involve more than 1/2 a yard (or less!) of fabric! If you are interested, please email sew.along [at] gmail [dot] com with your name, email address and mailing address by next Monday, 16 July 2007 and I'll get down to randomly allocating swap partners! There may be international participants, so you should be willing to ship internationally.

Looking forward to your participation!

One more entry - skirt

Okay, so I posted awhile back that I was also making a skirt along with my daughter's dress. Well, I'm finally getting around to posting it. I love Amy Butler fabric! I used Sew What Skirts to make the pattern for this. That book is really great. Very quick and easy!

bedroom slippers

Sorry, I missed the deadline :p Nevertheless, here's a pair of bedroom slippers I made for my dd last week but didn’t have the time to photograph it till last night. This is really quick and fast to do but it's a headache sewing the curve. Overall, it’s fun and C loves wearing this in the house now. :D

Using this piece of cute owl fabric.
