easy peasy

I tried Three Bears' Little Boxy Pouch tutorial out today
and wow... it was so easy to follow and the results were
amazing. Great tutorial! I tweeked the measurements
and made a pouch for my sister's digital camera. Lined
the inside with terry towelling. Nice and poofy!

soccer dreams

my soccer-crazy sister needed a new bolster cover
so i made one using one of her old soccer jerseys.
I used bootlaces for the ties at the ends. No worries,
mud and grass were absent. Sweet soccer dreams!

i chanced upon this exhibition at Basheercityroom gallery during
lunch today... Oh boy, i was so excited!! Buddy n i went "awww..."
&"ahhhh..." & "ohhhh...." & "woooo...." the whole time. Choosing
an apple was hard for Buddy but for me, i immediately connected
with the who was showing his teeth... ah, perfect expression. haha....
Buddy settled for the demure looking one. So pretty, it has eyelashes
too! Mine looks nervous taking a photo with her. :D We couldn't stop
taking photos... happy day!

i bought fabric off my friend leslie's etsy site yesterday :)
the prettiest pieces... some are vinyl coated too! Something i've
been wishing for. Can't wait for the package to arrive!! Woo Hoo!
Till then, i shall continue dreaming of bags and purses, pouches
and yeah, more bags in those pretty fabrics... *sigh*

i tried....

i thought i'd try my hand at knitting.. so i got all excited
and headed out to buy skiens of yarn, knitting needles..
and more yarn. This is the furthest i got to a scarf...
you're right, it isn't even close. i went back to sewing :)

that bag

My proudest project! Comfy enough to wear :)
a friend's torn t-shirt finds new life as a bag. Straps
look kinda flimsy but hey, it's been tested... and it
can take a lot. (just ask mr B, ha!)

print gocco

bag it!

my first attempt at sewing zippers )! The sushi
graphic was printed on fabric transfer paper and
ironed on.

My first purse after zipper success :)

i was on my usual walks in Spotlight when i spotted (ha!)
these snap buttons!! I was so thrilled.. I've always wondered
how you attached them to fabric and found that amazingly
easy!! I adore these white snap buttons to death... They
make the purse look like the face of a robot!


scissors, thimble and bobbin.. *sweet*... toughened up w a scull too!
