my sewing-box bag

this is my first bag..

it's rather difficult to hand-sew it. as usual i made it from cotton polkadot fabric (for outside), gingham fabric (for inside), fabric button, rubber cord, cotton lace, and dacron for filling. it took a long time to felt-stitch it, but i'm happy to see the result

my ladybug fabric button

well.. it feels soooo good to make something out of my hands. it makes me wanna sing all day.. i'm HAPPY...!!!!

elvie, the little elephant

meet my new household member.. elvie, the little elephant. elvie is small, cute and shy.. i made her from grey felt and pink polkadot cotton. i used giotto, special fabric marker, to draw her eye and blush..

do you think her ear is too big?

i pinned her on my bag.. happy crafting girls!

start crafting

hahhhh..it's been a long time since last i made my latest blog. n now i'm ready to show you some things new.. and guess what!.. I MADE THEM MYSELF!!!! hurray...
o yeah.. i've started crafting guys.. i'm really new at it.. so my handmades are still soooo simple n sometimes like a mess. this one is my very first hand-sewn handmade craft

i call it brownie pincushion. i made it from a scrap of brown flowery cotton, brown felt, 1 meter of brown lace.

my second one is this black-eyed-susan-red-purse. cute, isn't it? like the first one, i made it from cotton, flowery as the inner and red polkadot as an outer, white lace, sponge and a little velcro. on the cover i sewn black-eyed susan with white thread

this green one is my daisy pouch. my hand-sewing starts getting better shape. don't you think so? the daisy applique is made from yellow and orange felts. it looks good on the green background

this is the first time i use a zipper. at first i didn't think i could, considering i hand-sewn all my handmades. but i got nothing to lose.. soooo.. here it is.. my raggedy-ann purse. i've made it a simple one with no applique nor embellishment. my daughter, jilan, took it as her favorite, so i gave it to her as a gift
well.. i come to love this sewing thing. it makes me feel wonderful to have some things made by my own hands. i'm still learning.. trying.. and keep sewing to improve its tidiness. if you have critics or suggestions, kindly give a comment below this entry. see u people! keep crafting..!!!!
