Little Carrier Bag ~ 小提袋

This lovely mother has requested for a carrier bag for her daughter. This little carrier bag is for her daughter to put her school exercise books. Oh yes, school children nowadays have very big school bags. First, the text book are quite thick, then there are activity books, exercise books, stationery and some even are required to bring dictionary to school. I have seen some children use trolley luggage bags as their school bags!

Hope this little carrier bag with lots of smiling faces would brighten and lighten the little girl's day at school.

Cotton Handkerchief ~ 棉布手帕

上一回有提到我帮忙一位老朋友缝制一些物品在义卖会寄卖。这些棉手帕是其中一项。

第一次看到可爱的棉布手帕是在曼谷的市集。花样很多,好喜欢,但觉得有点儿薄。在这里的商场就很少看到棉布的手帕。棉布手巾就比较多。那有可能是因为很多人没有用手帕的习惯吧。从小东西就可以看到当地人的一些生活小习惯哦。

手帕的用处很多。不只可以抹抹汗,擦擦手,咳嗽或有难闻的气味时可以拿来遮住鼻子和口。天气热时可以用来扇风。看电影感动流泪时可以用来擦眼泪。也可以用来包糖果之类的小东西。用处真的是无限多。

出门时不妨带件手帕吧。:)

Simple Tote ~ 托特包

最近好像有好多义卖会。这一次是一位老朋友的孩子的学校义卖会。我也去凑热闹了。帮忙朋友缝了棉布手帕(下一回再分享)和托特包包放在义卖会寄卖。

这三个包包,我做得比较大。方便带去购物 ,可以放好多东西。如果忘了带环保袋出门,就可以直接把东西放进包包里。不必左右手都挂满购物袋。呵呵。

其实,在市面上可以找到各式各样的包包。有比较经济的也有比较高档的。还有就是有名气有牌子的。 每个人对选择包包的要求也不一样。有的人讲究牌子,另有些人要求实用。没有绝对的法则,都是依个人喜好。这都很好。最重要的是清楚知道自己的喜好,而不是盲目的跟从潮流时尚。忘了用心去选择,忘了心的感动。

你会喜欢怎么样的包包呢?

Simple Backpack ~ 简易背包


I have been wanting to make a backpack for myself but as usual always can't seems to find the time to do it. 

The opportunity has finally come. My nephew's school was running a fund raising event and I promised my sister in law that I would love to contribute to the event. It's time to make backpacks. Not too fancy and complicated one. This backpack design is adopted from a Japanese craft magazine with some modifications.

As the usual me, putting things off till the last minute, I've only managed to make four pieces. One for myself and three for the fund raising event. I love all of them. Each has its own charm. I sold two of these backpacks at the fund raising event and I'm glad. Hope to be able to contribute more next time.

Strawberry Drawstring Backpack ~ 草莓束口背包袋

A friend shared with me a tutorial on how to make a pineapple drawstring backpack. That was awesome. Those who are interested may check out the webpage

Got the inspiration from the tutorial, I'm making a drawstring backpack, not pineapple but strawberry :) Simply because I like strawberry better. So here it is - strawberry drawstring backpack.

I just love the vibrant colour of red and green

Handmade Journal ~ 手缝笔记本

好一段时间没有制作手缝书了。寄卖在书店的手缝书已经卖得七七八八了,赶紧动手制作。这一次做了五本。两本A5及三本A6。知道有好多人都喜爱猫头鹰,所以以猫头鹰布料做了两本。也尝试用最近买的的巴迪布(BATIK)来做书皮。效果还满意。

其实,现在很少人在用笔记本了。很多事情都电子化了。只有少数人会像我这样还用着纸本笔记。朋友说我做这些应该不好卖,制作成本又不便宜也不赚钱吧。我说的确是不好赚,销量也不惊人。手作肯定不会让我发财致富,哈哈。但我做这些并不是为了要赚很多钱。纯粹是做自己喜欢做的事,希望可以透过作品与珍惜手作的人结缘。如果制作的作品可以让人感动,那就是最好的回报。
