Anyone who sees this will surely have a big smile on her face. The gallinas in preparation stage.... Three hardworking ladies responsible for this cute wall hanging...

Perpetual Calendar

I bought this wooden calendar from a friend. I hang it in the shop as I like that cozy feeling. A lot of people have been asking me to buy for them.

So here they are. I have 8 pieces in my stock, 4 pink and 4 blue. Contact me if you would like to get one.

Bag for Children

This tote is designed for children. It is rather spacious for a file and water thumbler. The outside pocket is adorned with little Sue reading a book. Can be custom made to suit your need. If you want to sew it yourself, we can assemble the kit for you, based on request.

There are also several Billy applique designs for boys.

Intensive Class for Miri Student

On Monday night when I was getting ready to leave, a lady came in and inquired regarding bag making class. After some explanation, she requested that I teach her within 1 day (11 to 6pm). I said it would be very taxing for you. But guess what, Pn. Jenab managed to complete her bag within 61/2 hours! A record so far for my student. She was very determined to complete it on Tuesday as she would be flying back to Miri the following night (that is tonite).

She chose to make the bag with the round handle. Her sewing skill and passion helped a she made minor mistakes & best of all, no unpicking at all!

After 6 hours of hardwork, here she is posing with her new bag (some hand stitching yet to be done!). Overall, it was a day well spent.

See you again during the next school holiday.

Bag Handles and Laces

Hi all. Just wanted to share with you these laces and bag handles that are curently in stock. This small lace (1/2 inch wide) is lovely for small projects.

This one is wider roughly 11/4 inch. Suitable for bags.

These bag handles are easy to assemble (sew in). I have 6 pairs of each colour.

IPad Cover

I wish to thank our clients who kept coming with new ideas and requests. Some of them were pretty simple, some were quite challenging and required you to spend some time at the drawing board. Actually there are so many beautiful things we can create when we combine fabrics, embroidery plus of course, our imagination.

While we were doing the Sue cushion cover, a young client came in and requested for an IPad cover to be made. Here is what she requested, an IPad cover with Sue & Billy on the front cover and her name on the reverse.

This is how the cover looked like before it is fully assembled.

And here is the finished IPad cover. Isn't it cute? Thank you Nadya.

Bags with round handle

We made these 2 bags last month. The assembly is quite simple. A bit of handstitching to secure the handles. We have classes for this bag if you are keen to learn, or place an order with us if you are too busy to sew it yourself. It makes a nice gift for Mother's Day too. It measures 16" (w) x 12.5" (h) x 4" (b).
