I have enjoyed making all kinds of round shaped bags lately. After making countless bags and pouches, I wanted to try something NOT square or rectangle. This is how I came up with this Rollcake bag and I am very excited about it. My daughter Claire said it looked like a cake so I named it “Rollcake bag”. I would like to make more bags with different fabric combinations. My Rollcake bag pattern is on my patternshop SewingIllustration.com.         Sources: Liberty fabric from Ava and Neve Fusible fleece from Dailylike Canada Strapping for handle from ByAnnie.com      Read More →

A long long time ago, when I didn’t have my own blog, when I didn’t know that there was something called Instagram, I found one beautiful picture on the internet. That picture led me to continuous clicks and I finally found a blog called “Cafenohut”. Ever since that moment, Cafenohut was saved in my bookmark bar and Cafenohut Pinterest was my eye candy jar. I thought this blogger was a genius and that belief hasn’t changed a bit! Ayda Algin, the lady was like a movie star to me. I wished to know her better and to say hi, if there’s a way. I never knew thisRead More →
