All made up and nowhere to go

All made up and nowhere to go

I should be packing by now because we’re going for summer vacation the day after tomorrow. And I should be folding my dresses neatly to be put in the luggage instead of making a new one. But yeah, I just… can’t… resist….. But how could you resist this lovely fabric from Kokka? The fabric is…

Pig and polkadot bag (and pencil pouch)

Pig and polkadot bag (and pencil pouch)

When my husband saw these oilcloth bags, he said that he’d be very happy to have an oilcloth bag in a more, uh, manly pattern. I’ve been eyeing this oilcloth fabrics from Echino line by Etsuko Furuya, so I was happy to find the opportunity to sew them. I pick this interesting black oilcloth with…

This is a bag that I made as birthday gift for a friend of Sidra. The bag is reversible with oilcloth fabric in different Curious George pattern on both sides and has detachable straps. Actually it is so hard to find a perfect gift for a 7 years old boy! I decided on this bag…

I found this double-gauze knit fabric from nani IRO line in Yuzawaya, and immediately fell in love with its simple but adorable pattern. The fabric is 80 cm in width, so I decided to make a simple dress that can be worn over my swimsuit. Perfect for summer! The shape of the dress is very…

Dropped crotch sunsuit #2

After wearing my elephant print romper in several occasions, I grew to like it very much. So I decided to make another one for my shop.

Linen wallets

Linen wallets

A friend asked me if I could make her a women’s wallet from linen. I’ve never made one, so this sounded challenging and I agreed to try it. I’ve made a billfold wallet for Sidra before, but wasn’t very satisfied with the result. The wallet was too thick to be put under the sewing machine…

My first Etsy sale!

My first Etsy sale!

It’s only been 3 days since I opened the etsy shop, so I didn’t really expect anything going on. But yesterday I got an email from etsy notifying that I’ve just got a bag sold! Somebody actually want to buy them! Really? I just couldn’t stop smiling all day. And I’m still not sure how…

Dropped crotch romper

Dropped crotch romper

Being more of a dress person, I’ve never thought much about this romper trend before. But maybe they kinda grew on me since I saw them around the net so much. So when I found this cotton fabric with black and white elephant print on it, I decided to give a take on romper. The…
