A Little Something........

Here's a little something for the kids at the orphanage. I managed to sew four tote bags for the 'Back to School Charity Project' organized by Pondok Craft. The simple tote design is based on a pattern that I made in 2007 & it is big enough for a tuition bag (means I forgot to measure the finished size :P ).
The bundle of totes was posted on Thursday & I just hope that it arrives on time before the deadline.
I hope this little gift from me would put smiles on the children's faces.

A girly tote :)

I thought this navy gingham & yellow patches tote looks too plain, so I sew a cute bunny charm to adorn the bag.

I lengthen the height of the tote pattern to make the large tote.

Here's the cute bunny charm. I got the idea while sewing these totes. So one lucky gal is gonna get my 1st bunny charm & I hope she likes it.

A special thanks to kak Ayu for organizing this charity project. I'm sure a little something from everyone of us crafters would make a huge bundle of joy for the childrens at the orphanage.

Have a nice weekend!

Bird Pouch

Wonder what they're chirping about?.....:)
I would freak out if I hear a sound coming from something that I sew. Well, just imagine if your work piece can speak, they would have been your toughest critic!

OK,enough chirping. I made two of this bird pouch using Ikea fabrics. Instead of just black & white, I sew a felt bird applique on one side of the pouch.
The pouch measures approximately 9"(w) X 6"(h) X 3"(d). The handle is 4 1/2" long. This pouch is big enough to hold lots of stationery.

Then I sew another pouch using some fabric scraps.

The shape reminds me of petunia, so I named it 'petunia pouch'. It's small & cute with enough space to stash hand phone, small wallet or pencils.
Finished size: 10"(w) X 5 1/2"(h). Zipper opening: 6"

Till then, happy sewing!
Hope you enjoy whatever you're doing.

Your imperfections make you human. Imperfection should never define you. It's how you handle them that defines who you are.
