Dog Bone Case

You know how much I love my Labrador… and his favourite treat is a BONE.

So, I made these Bone Shaped Cases.

Bone Cases 1

The zipper is 6″ long, hence the case is long enough to be used as a pencil box, or make-up case. Yes, all my long eye liners, mascara and brushes can fit into this “big bone”.

I embellished the zipper with a key chain with abead and a “kissing couple” charm.

This case is just so full of doggie love ;-).

Green Flower Clutch / Wrist-let

I made this a couple of days ago on a whim. I’m a sucker for flower prints and couldn’t help myself when I saw this wonderful flower printed cloth at IKEA.

This is my second attempt in making pleats and I am quite happy with how it turned out.

I made a little strap on one – allows me to put my wrist through to carry it around (hehehe… hence the wrist-let part). But upon trying it out during a little shopping escapade, I felt that it would be better as a clutch.

This clutch has a zip which is really handy when I’m holding it by the strap.

All in all, I’m quite happy with the end product.

Here, I share with you my fabric cupboard. There are more than 100 different type. Almost all of them are Cotton and Cotton-blend. I just love working with cotton! There’s also quite a bit of Felt. Felt is great to make embellishments.

Sharing Fabric

I made these drawstring bags while I was accompanying Mom in the hospital last month. Long cold nights… so I kept myself busy sewing these drawstrings. I’m glad we both only had to be there for 1 night 😉

Heart Me Tote Bag

Another tote bag? Well, I can never have enough of totes. One can say I am a tote slut 😛 shhh…

Heart Tote2

She is made of canvas cotton, with a magnetic snap and a zipper pocket inside. I love the hearts.

I bought 1 meter of this canvas cotton, and am able to make 6 of these little beauty in this size. But I didn’t make 6 of course… I like to make different sizes and style (even if it just differs a little …). This is quite an expensive cloth, because of its weight and because it is imported canvas.

My current craze is sewing bags! Yippie!

Flower Green Tote

I simply love the combination on colour! Green with Yellow, and some Brown. Perfect bag for my shopping. I’m thinking fabric shopping? :-) Hehe…

Front view…

This bag is made of 100% cotton, and I use a medium weight iron-on interlining between the fabrics. The photos doesn’t do justice to how pretty she is… (and also because I have not iron her… she got all crumply when I turned her inside out while sewing… poor thing…).

Inside, I made 2 pockets. One with zip and one without.

And not forgetting to credit to WhimsyLoft by putting a Tag!

It’s quite large, measuring about 25″ x 18″.

Light Me Up! Tote

I made this during the public holiday on Monday and finally had the time to upload it. I just love making totes and when I saw this fabric, it really caught my eye and the first thing that came to my mind was that it would look great for a bag.

Light Me Up!

I just love making bags but the thing about making too many bags is that I end up not using them and it gets stored away, hidden deep in the recesses of my cupboards after a while. Which is a total waste because bags are made to be used.

So… if you’re interested in buying the bag (and ensuring that I have more storage space :) )please visit our etsy store.

Thank you for reading!

Felt Case

Felt Case – for your everyday needs.

Can be used as a pencil case, make-up case, even for coins, or just to organised your drawers/bags.

felt case

I love sewing with felt because they don’t fray. And they make everything look cute and lovely (does this 2 attributes go together? :-P).

But I realised that sewing with felt… it is better to sew by hand. Maybe because I am just not to good in adjusting the sewing machine tension (or just plain lazy to do so :-O) hahaha… anyway, I enjoy sewing by hand. It allows my mind to wonder and think of happy things.
