Quilted Hexagon Bag

Hello everyone!

 I have been crazy lately playing with fact I've already prepare a long list of projects that I would like to create using hexagons.  

 Today I am sharing another quilted bag created using hexagons. Since I am not too satisfied with the result (especially the crooked seam)I am not giving this bag away...( initially I plan to sew this as a  gift for my mum).  I will sew another one for my mum with some modification towards the original pattern. 

 I used 28 pieces of 2" hexagons. The design of this bag was inspired from this leather hand bag.

It comes with two internal pockets - one for the cell phone and another with the size of 5" x 6" to keep small items. I used velcro as the bag closure. The is how the inside of the bag looks like.

I am sharing this at Sew Lux Fabric & Gifts for December Stitch and Share Challenge.  Click over to their blog and see other projects shared by other talented crafters/sewers. You may also join the fun since the date line will be until 31st of December.

 Wish everyone Happy New Year and Happy Sewing!!

Fabric basket

Hi everyone!

I just finished sewing this fabric basket.... a gift for my husband.  The height of this basket is 5.5cm.   I used the following pattern which I took from the Japanese sewing book just following the diagram since I can't read Japanese.


It gives me an idea to sew one for my hubby since he loves to put his coins on the mug rug that I've made  him. 

And here goes the coins into its new home...

The fabric basket with full of coins at the corner of the computer table.

I am sharing this at the Sew and Share Challenge and Stash project of the Month.
Wishing everyone Happy Holidays 

and  Happy New Year!!

Market Tote : Stitch & Quilt Along

Hi everyone!!

I choose to sew the Market Tote that I participated at Clover and Violet for the FNSI.  Basically the Quilt Along is called "the Ruby Market Tote" since it used Ruby fabric line. I drop  'the Ruby'  name due to my  market tote used different fabric line... For my market tote I used Japanese cotton fabric....and this is the result...

Front of the bag with embroidered pocket.

and this is how the back of the bag looks like.

It also can be fold and easy to carry since you can just roll and tie it up. For those who interested to sew this may click HERE for the details.

It has been a productive week for me and wish for you too.

Happy sewing!!

Aviator Hat

Remember the post that I  wrote about Aviator hat which I've made for a customer? I made another one but with two different colors.  Basically for this hat,  I did not follow any specific pattern.... even though there are a lot of similar designs out there but I am not sure whether it is suitable to use with our local yarn(from my experienced I find that pattern on the web are usually turn out small).   Due to that I try to do some modification toward the first aviator hat pattern using the yarn that can be found locally and the result ... here it is... 

For this version I used the Ondori Arcylic yarn(45g) using 4.5mm aluminium hook size.
It turn out suitable for baby size 9 - 12 months.

This is my nephew age 7 months old... it is just too big for him.

Happy Crocheting!!

Market tote: Stitch & Quilt Along

This is just a post to share my progress on the Ruby Market Tote: Stitch and Quilt along that I joined with others at Clover and Violet.  This is what I've completed so far ...

Patchwork bag body...done
before quilt

after quilted

The lining and the pockets ...done.  The embroidery pocket lining is yet to be pressed...

Embroidery ... yet to complete.

I decided to change the fabric for the pocket since the earlier fabric does not match with the overall tone of the bag body. 

Happy Sewing !!
