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 →

It’s May already! Are you enjoying beautiful May? It’s my daughter’s birthday month and my girls are already waiting for the summer break. I like vacation because I don’t need to worry about lunch menu (all my three girls don’t like school lunch.) but I don’t like them fighting. lol May is a very busy and fun month at the same time, any way. My Shine your light tote bag was featured on Homespun magazine May issue and that makes this month more fun, for sure.         One side has a big pocket and   the other side has a small pocket.Read More →

            Today we are invited to 8 years old girl’s birthday party. I wanted to give her something special, so instead of going to shopping, ¬†I spent all morning sewing this bag. I had to search through piles of fabrics which are mostly plain linen, luckily ¬†I found this kitty cat one that I bought at Joann long time ago. To secure the bottom part, I used my girl’s old jean. Claire is the perfect model today. (I promised her a bubble gum for doing this very important job. ) I hope the birthday girl will love my handmade bagRead More →
