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
Perfect for outing

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。

Fabric Roll-up Stationery Case ~ 文具收纳袋

Recently made a gift for a friend who is passionate about Zentangle art. She used to carry her Zentangle art tools in a zipper bag. Upon seeing that I thought I could made her an organizer or case to help organize her tools. And this would be perfect as a birthday gift for her.

I think this fabric roll-up stationery case would be great to keep coloured pencil collection as well.

Fabric Water Tumbler Carrier in Style ~ 清新亮丽水壶袋

最近一位妈妈向我订制了水壶袋。之前都是为小孩们缝制水壶袋,为大朋友制作还是头一次。在设计和颜色运用方面有必要做些调整。虽然,是有这么想但脑袋却不一定配合。当我们习惯了用某个方式处理事情,因为有了这些经历,脑袋就会用同样的方式操作。

之前所制作的水壶袋的肩带都是缝在袋子的外面,因为袋口是以束口袋的方式完成。而这一次呢,这位妈妈要求说水壶袋不要用束口的袋口。我明白了要求,但脑袋却没有收到相关的讯息!水壶袋做好后,我把相片传给这位妈妈。她回复说肩带看来怪怪的,是否可以修改。她建议把肩带的位置调高。我看了看,觉得没有什么问题啊。但还是同意帮她修改。在拆线的过程中,我突然想到了另一个更好的方式来缝制肩带。还好,修改后这位妈妈还满意。别人的意见真的是很可贵,他们可以为我们指出盲点。所以我非常感谢可以给我意见的朋友和顾客。让我能够不断进步,把作品做得更好。

把肩带缝在袋里比较美观

简单的设计,但用心100分哦。

Spiderman Pencil Pouch ~ 蜘蛛侠笔袋

This is actually long overdue. My boy asked me to make a big pencil case for him. He said the existing one he has is a bit small, not able to put in scissors and glue.

I actually cut out the fabric long ago but then the project was put on hold as there were some other projects to attend to and I thought this can wait...One day, my boy came to me and said why I prioritized other projects over his. I was speechless. It was indeed a fair remark. Yes, there are a lot times we put other people's needs above our loved ones' needs. I will keep that in mind son, thank you for reminding me what matters most. :-)
