About 7 months ago, I went to Quilt'nCalicoes Store in Singapore. Nice quilt store with many interesting stuff but the prices are quite expensive... hiks!
I couldn't  spend much there, not the right time.. I should save some more money for this purpose .. and I'll be back.. I hope! :)

Well, I did buy some little things.. I got some fabrics :) and Kimono Kits and Pattern.
My Kimono project has done last week, I combined with some local fabric that I bought in Jakarta.

Do you know which are local fabrics? :))

Happy Wednesday Fun Project - Reversible Purse

My friends wanted an easy and fun project. And they asked it for free.. (No charge, please Ibu!).
The ladies are so funny, I like them. We talk and laugh a lot, we share a lot of things while we were sewing.. they make me happy every Wednesday!

I prepared the pattern "Reversible Purse" from Martha Stewart  and brought some fabric that already cut from home. So at the end of our class project, we started to make this fun project.

I didn't show them this bag, it's a surprise gift. But I only made one bag, I asked them to write down their name on a piece of paper and put it in a box, then I picked one name with my eyes close. Only one person looked so happy, and the others shouted... arrrgghhh!!!

So, I said :"Ok..ok, I will pick one more name and I will give this unfinished bag!".
I bet you can guess how they start to scream again...LOL

Then they said : " Ibu, please make a fun project again next week!".
And I said : "...Aaaaarrrrggghhh!!!".

Silent in the Dark - Part 1

I bought some grey and black fabrics when I went to Bandung, it was my fist time that I chose the black colour fabric.. never did before! :)

Silent in the dark ?!? I don't know where those words come from... stars always there in the dark night sky (right?)... I was thinking to make variation star blocks... :))

8 Pointed Star

I need three more stars to finish this star sampler project. I will make Ohio Star, Amish Star... but I have not decided yet, what star for the last one.

Sound for Peace

I found a beautiful local fabric with Japanese design and I fell in love with it. So I decided to use it for this project, it took some time until I find some other match fabrics for these blocks.

The second sampler project class will begin next month. I hope my friends will be interested in this project :)
