I simply love this fabric that I picked up at the fabric store a few days ago. One thing that I’ve learnt (as far a fabric shopping is concern) is to look at the clearance bin and go through as many pile as you can, coz you never know what you might find. Also, I try to scrutinise the design of the fabric coz sometimes you will spot very interesting details which might be overlooked if you look at the piece of fabric on the whole. This fabric has little ladybirds and four leaf clovers on it.
I decided to make a cute little zipped purse out of the fabric. It measures 5″ by 4″ with the bottom at 6″ wide. The curved edges were a challenge. Hard to get both side symmetrical. I guess having a good pattern and a lot of practice will definitely help.
Once again, this cute lil’ purse is available at my etsy store. Do check it out.


I needed to get out of the house yesterday and decided to go downtown for lunch. Had my favourite yong tau foo noodles and thereafter proceeded for some fabric shopping. I found some very nice Japanese fabric, so pleased that I managed to buy some at very reasonable prices (compared to other shops). 

Here’s what I bought !! 

I’ve made zipped purses with 2 of the fabrics and they are available at my etsy shop. I will get to work today with the rest of the fabric, so excited!!

i’ve finally completed the cabled clutch that i promised to make for sis. i started knitting it last year like in june and casted it aside for the longest time. Now back in Singapore with loads of time on my hand, i picked it up again recently and started to put in the lining, button and ribbon. So here it is in it’s full glory.   cabled-clutch.jpg   

the lining was made from a piece of heather bailey’s fresh spirit fat quarter stash that i had purchased last year in Canberra. (i wonder where in Singapore can i find a good craft store???) here’s the lining that was hand sewn using nylon thread. lining.jpg

 i think sis will be pleased. i am!! it’s way nicer and look so much more professional that the first one i made.
