Long journeys and running time

The past months have been one big journey in every way. At times exhausted, at times on the verge of breaking and at time at heights of joy and simple laughter. Time seems to be moving ever quickly, as though it has to be elsewhere... The journey has been tiring emotionally and physically, so much so that I've begun to question the reason I set out on the journey in the first place. Hope for the break of dawn.

Transition from webpage to online store

Finally I'll be moving on to the online store this month, where real time purchase can happen. I'm yet to upload pictures, which is the one thing holding me back from going live (yay!).

In the mean time, I haven't started working on any new projects as yet. But I will be making new products for the store very soon.

Hair accessories for the little (and big?) girls

My girl loves the clips that I make. I added some of my latest creation to the store. I have the stone clips and the velvet ribbon clips. I LOVE the colours!
I have them in the store now. One is the fan clip and the other one is the little bow clip. I also have limited stock of the Rose Jewel clips (my girl loves the rose clip).

Ikat Rucksack

I have been busy with the usual run of life and had not taken the time to update on a my latest works. I made an Ikat Rucksack for my daughter for the new School Year. She loves it.

 It is fairly simple. Has the net pouch at the sides to hold water bottle and other knick knacks she feels like keeping there and a space in the front of the bag to keep her snack box, so no separate snack bag this year! There is a magnetic clasp so that the lunch box won't pop out.

I have used a snap closure at the front and the top flap of the bag is faux leather or Rexine.

Special Couple

Got to hear some very good news from a very special friend 2 weeks back. Made the drawing to make something for them.

Fuzzy Fur cushions

I got some minky small fur fabric to make something special for a special friend and I thought I wanted to make some cushions out of those soft and cuddly fabric. I knew I wanted them in heart shape and square and here they are. These are amazing to just hold and cuddle! Feels just like you are holding a soft teddy.

Can you see (feel) the softness of this???

Freemotion Embroidery

They say that free motion embroidery is "painting" with your thread on a sewing machine. You make a design and make the design come to life using the sewing machine.

The below picture doesn't do justice to the thread colours. I first drew my design on the cloth using a water soluble marker and did the embroidery on top of my drawing.

I have used various thread types. It does take time and a LOT of thread to get it done, but it is fun to do if you don't mind changing the threads multiple times :-).

Two Toned Ikat Tote

That's supposed to be me, clutching my new bag :-), which is why I'm happy and singing in my head and  feeling of love and butterflies :-D.

And so, the latest addition to my online store - Tadaaa

It its a combination of Ikat fabric and black synthetic leather. This is one of the medium to large size tote. It measures about 13.5x15x4. Which is why you can see in the picture below my laptop easily fits into the bag (along with a ton of other things).

I have added a pouch / pocket to keep mobile / tiny receipts / papers, shopping list etc, provision to keep your pens / pencils and also the tiny hook where you can keep you keys so you don't have to search the whole bag for the keys. I did not add a zip closure, but added a magnetic clasp instead. There are two zip pockets, one at the back of the bag and one on the inside.

So, here is the latest Ikat pouch.
