Spring Tote Bag (Sewing Project #16)

It's been a while since my last posting. I hope that does not sign I'm no longer stay close to my blog and you. It sounds cliche, but really I was exhausted with my daily basis work, and can't even think to make craft (I know, I have to make a better time management AND energy management here..).

But hey, I'm not complaining! :P It's only a delayed work. I'm back to craft few days ago, and done my next sewing project. It actually an order by a good friend of mine. She asked me to make a tote bag, and I took this KeykaLou's pattern. -- In case you haven't heard of it, she was a bag designer that offer an easy-to-follow pattern and instruction, the link is on my right :) 

I love how it's turn out... AND it's also available on my shop. Yeeiyy..!! ^_^

Fold Over Clutch (Sewing Project #15)

Hello everyone! How's your day today?
A couple of days ago I managed to make another fold over clutch. This time I use orange fabric stripes as the exterior fabric, combined with coordinating solid cotton. I especially love the orange stripes, it's just brighten up my mood in the middle of cloudy days ^_^

As the lining, I also use the same solid brown cotton with full interface all around the body and flap. The interface gave more shape and strength.

So, I made this clutch based on KeykaLou pattern which once again easy to follow. In the end, it's just a perfect clutch to carry things, especially when you stuff your things inside. The shape then just pop up :P 
It's perfect for me, and it may be perfect for you, too. For more picture and details you can visit my store.

Hope you have a bright happy days! ^_^


Fold Over Clutch (Sewing Project #14)

Hi everyone, what a nice day today! It is a bit cloudy, but it's just perfect! Another weekend means another classes for my postgraduate programs, means another studies are waiting. Hey, I'm thrilled, can't wait to get into my class :D

Anyway, yesterday I manage to sew more sewing projects. It's a fold over clutch, and another simple clutch like I made before. A fold over clutch means that there is a little bit folded flap when you close it down. It is closed by magnetic snap, on a beautiful small flap. I love this pattern by KeykaLou. It is very well instructed and easy to sew.

I made this first fold over clutch on kawaii cotton, with calico lining. It is fully interfaced with medium weight interface to form its shape. For that decision I am absolutely satisfied, since I don't like slack clutch.

For a beginner sewer, you have to be careful on making the curve stitches like those on the small flap, and the curved body itself. But it's worth it, for at the end it really is a cute and sweet clutch.

The pattern comes on three sizes, small, medium and large. The one I made is the large one, and it got, literally, huge space inside the clutch. It is my favorite one now, especially with all those printed fat chubby bears  ^_^


Simple Clutch I Love (Sewing Project #13)

It feels like centuries since the last time I post. But here's the news, I made a new clutch. It's simple but clean and modern. The pattern is provided by KeykaLou. It is a super simple and easy to follow tutorial in a form of pdf file. (I tend to ruin my pattern when I copy it into fabric, so e-tutorial like this is a good way out because you can print hundreds of time ^_^).

Originally, I made this clutch for myself. I need one purse to place my bills and cards, but the one in the store nowadays always come with a great thickness, and I haven't put anything yet! Can you imagine how bulky it is when you stuff it with bills, cards, coupons and others? As for me, a thin clutch is a must! Because of that, I didn't put second flap like the original pattern.

Anyway, I love how it turns out so I decided to make another one and put it in my store. If you want to have one, click on KeykaLou's link on the right and sew one for yourself. Another alternative? Come visit my store and you will get one clutch with ethnic taste in a modern style!  ^_^

Have a good day!
