unique messenger bag

I have done sashiko stitch on this European linen cloth.
The pattern is Kagome, and I have used the black DMC no.5 thread.
The bird figure at the centre is hand painted by me, and it suppose to be a dove. ; )

The model of this dove is the one that always comes around to my backyard.
I stitched the retro black button for the eye.
It actually looks surprised now, and it's expression is so much like the one I usually see when my dog gives them a fright.
The wording stamp I stamped next to the dove is of Rome writing, so I don't know what it says. It just look nice!

This is the back side of the bag, and I have put the tweed pocket at the centre.
It has a retro black button on it as well as an ornament.

This is the inside, and it can be closed by using the magnet button at the top.
It has a whole size zipper pocket on one side, and a small pockets on the other to store your mobile, pen and others.

The strap can be worn short or long.

new sewing box for patchwork lovers

I was making three sewing boxes, two for the request, and one for an auction.
One I have sold already and didn't take the final picture, so I can't show it to you, but this one is the second one of the request.
The lady who has requested it didn't want it to be on auction, so I have done a special deal with her this time, as she has been a good bidder for these few months.
This is the inside of the sewing box. This dot fabric is really cute, and it matches well with the floral fabric.

This is the third sewing box which I plan to put into auction today, and it has a different feature from the sewing box I usually make.

The tray is divided into two, which is fixed this time rather than having two free standing boxes.

This tray can be removed and there is a space at the bottom where you can store your cutting scissors, and fabrics for patchwork etc.
You can also fit in the rotary cutter as well.

Sashiko spectacle stand

This is the latest spectacle stand I have made.
I have done sashiko on a plain cotton fabric with DMC 5 thread.
The sashiko pattern is Kagome, and I love this systematic pattern.

I have brought this high contrast colour fabric inside, which is the Asian Shu colour.

I have stamped my logo at the bottom. It reads 'sen'.
This is the gift I have made for my mother in law.
Hope she likes it.

Japanese style spectacle stand

I have made few more of the spectacle stands.

This is the pretty floral type. It seems to be more popular to Japanese women.

This is the Japanese floral fabric one.

This is the traditional Japanese character fabric with all sorts of kanji characters of fish.
You see this at most of the Sushi bars in Japan.

This is the vintage fabric one.
They are all in auction Japan now.
