Inside the zipper compartment are 2 pockets and one zipper pocket.

my mobile

You can view my sold items here


This is the mobile phone I am currently using(!).
I'm sure it is quite rare to see this type of mobile now a days.
But, I just don't see the need to have internet access on my phone as I don't go out much.
Mobile phone to me is just an emergency line.

Anyway, I'm now making a mini granny boston for a request.
I'll be working on the requested purse soon!

This is the first one, with the Liberty on its right.

Close up of the lid.

The lid has a batting inside, and is soft to the touch.

This is the inside of the box.
You can use it as a sewing box, jewelry box, or a carry box for your Gel Nail accessories (got this idea from a young friend of mine).

This is the second box with the Liberty on its left.

Going through requests

You can view my sold items here


This is the "purse to go" made for the client in Japan.

Very roomy purse which can be carried like a bag.

This is the 2nd purse style bag I made for my friend.
The first one was requested by her family to leave behind.

I've used a simple dot inside.

This will be a lid of the sewing box I'm making this week.
It's for the customer who had visited me at the event and requested a specific design.
Two sewing boxes using this beautiful Liberty.
I've extended the design with embroidery.

This is the second one with the Liberty on the other side.

First work after the event


You can view my sold items here


I've been quite busy after the event.
First I got rid of my hubby;s tax return

then I started cutting cards into parts
and assembled them into boxes.
I use 2mm thick cards for sewing box, so I need strength to cut them.
I'm making 6 boxes in one go.
Oh my hand...

And this is the purse bag I made for my friend.
She's going away in few days time, so I had to finish it by Saturday.
Hope she likes the colour.

This is the back side of the bag.
It has a zipper pocket which can fit in your passport, and a small zipper pocket for coins.

It has a zipper pocket at the centre, a pen holder, a pocket for notes, 2 point card pockets, and 8 card pockets.  It has a gathered pocket at the front for mobile phones.
You can use it like a purse, or

as a bag with your purse, keys, and mobile, etc.

I'm now making an accordion type purse bag for the client from Japan.

making tags

I'm making tags to put on my items.
I've hand written and scanned words in Japanese.
Don't worry there are English as well.
Thought it would add a character to my items!
By the way, I've painted coffee on this card paper to make it look antique. ; )
It worked well and it smells like coffee!

The event is on this Saturday!!
Hope you can come and join us as it will be a sunny warm day!
