Pink Drawstring Bag

Made this for a dear friend of mine.

The inspiration came from these prints which I got at Nagoya (the fabric shop). I think now I have to join Nagoya Anonymous as I have been spending a lot of time (and money) every time I pass by the shop.

Anyway, the bag is sized 20cm x 14 cm. I used satin ribbons as the drawstring. I made yo-yo flowers as embellishments

The insides are lined with plain cotton. The reason why I used a lining is to hide the imperfections of my stitching plus the material I use is quite thin therefore the lining provides extra strength.

Hope she like it.

Bags For Charity

My dearest friend is working for the National Cancer Society and has been part of the organising team for Relay for Life.

Last year we joined in the crowd in the activities organised. This year I thought I would do something different. I made some crafts for the association to sell. All proceeds goes to the Relay for Life fund.

I made tote bags, handphone pouches and handphone charms. I hope they sell (fingers crossed)

I hope people would attend the event as it shows our support and empathy to cancer patients, survivors and their families.

Fabric Flower Handphone Charm

My yo-yo flower phase is still not over. I made a lot to be used as embellishments for my bags. The process got easier when my uncle sent me the Clover Yo-Yo Maker. However, the bags and pouches are still not ready since I was busy with work.

But I managed to squeeze in a mini project with smaller flowers I made. Below are two handphone charms I made from the yo-yos. I think they look cute! Btw, each flower is about 3cm in diameter.
