Reversible bags giveaway! – CLOSED

With so many things that I made recently, I think I need to let go some of them to keep the house liveable. So I decided to open an etsy shop! I don’t want to go to overboard with this shop, so I won’t be building a collection or something like that. I will only make things that I like and put them up for sale when I like it. It’s not that I’m not serious about the shop, but I don’t want to loose the excitement of creating stuffs. And well, sometimes I can get so lazy and that […]

Too many bags won’t kill you

I was offered by several nice ladies to join them in a local market held in my area. This market is usually held for two days, once in every season. I’ve been there once, the sellers are usually stay-at-home moms who loves to craft in their spare time, and the buyers are other moms too, so it’s a bit like an inner circle. The place is not really big, but I guess it’s enough to accommodate all of these women from the area who’s interested to come. I decided to make reversible Charlie bags for this occasion because (1) they’re […]

Checks pants

A friend took me to a local department store that I’ve never visited, with a little corner for fabric and sewing goods, and I found this fabric cut in 70 cm for only ¥200! Just enough for another pants for Sidra. The pattern is the same as this pants, with some added length. To add some interests, I use polka dot fabric for facings on waistline, pockets, and hems. It was a very easy and quick project and I’m quite satisfied with the result! Pattern is from R&D.M.Co-boys&girls.

The week when my internet went down

Our modem had a problem last week, and since it was provided by our apartment developer, my husband called them to ask for a new one. I couldn’t believe when they said it would take almost a week to send a new modem! What would I do without internet for a week? Erm, okay, I had to calm down. So I went to the sewing room. 1. Family boxers I always wanted to sew boxers for my husband, and finally found the perfect pattern for it in a Japanese pattern book that I borrowed from a local library. It went […]

Madras dress

I think I’m inspired by madras dresses that I’ve seen a lot lately. So when I found this madras 2 m cut fabric in Yuzawaya, I snatched it right away and carried on to make this dress. This dress is sort of my experiment of making clothes without pattern. I measured myself and drew straight on the fabric. The checks pattern really helped a lot for positioning. The top part stops above the bust, and the bottom part is just a pair of ruffled long rectangles. The sleeves are a pair of long rectangles, each folded in half and then […]
