Hello eveyone!

They are lovely fabrics, don't you think?
I wasn't sure what to do when I first pulled it out of the drawer 

then I decided to make a pinwheel quilt
the progress....

....albeit slow

here is how it looks like for now
a quilt is nice
but still wasn't sure and i might just end up making pillow cases
 i know, i know you probably thought..............i am a big fat lazy, but to be honest yes i am -__-

so that's the thing i finished..hoorayy!!!

Thank you for stopping by again
Wishing you a fabulous Sunday;))

Tutorial: Make your own fabric labels

Hi everyone!
As promised, here's a quick tutorial on how to make your own fabric labels.

a beautiful fabric label can add the perfect finishing touch to your creation...

here's what you need; iron on transfer paper ( you can easily get it at your local stationary store)

First thing you need to do is design your label using any creative software.
Once you've done your label design, remember to flip the image 
or select mirror image from your inkjet printer settings
 Test print your design on plain paper to make sure the images/texts are flipped (optional step)

The next step is to iron transfer onto fabric.
Now get out your cotton fabric or you can also use bias tape

Place transfer paper with printed image facing down onto fabric.

Iron the transfer, use enough overlapping passes to cover the image entirely

After ironing, allow your fabric to cool down for at least 2 minutes.
Then, peel smoothly so the carrier sheet does not tear.
If the image begins lifting, that means you haven't applied enough pressure and heat--re iron the image

cut out the fabric and now its READY to be used onto your creations

we should proudly display the label on all products that we make -_-
if you try this do let me know, I'd love to see how it turns out!

Enjoy your weekend!!

baby crib

It's been a while since I've last posted..was waiting for inspiration i guess..but now i'm back for more updates...*grin*

here it's a super simple patchwork that i've been working on yesterday
the crib size measures 36"x28", with matching pillow
it would make a great baby gift!

how to?

all seam allowances are 1/4" throughout the process

it comes together quickly

definitely happy with DIY fabric labels..its pretty simple!
i'll show you on next enrty

i'm hoping that i can make a larger quilt soon

...i just can't help but I would prefer to just sit and stare at those beautifully designed fabrics...or browsing through internet searching for yummylicious fabrics, i know that doesn't helps either *_*

p/s: don't let your husband knows how much you spend on fabrics...haha
i'm off to make a cup of tea and hope you have a great day!

color me pretty

Hello everyone!
I want to share with you some picas of baby quilt I sewed last night. This time around I got really inspired by striking colours scheme.

each squares measured 10"x10"

luckily I had these bright fabrics in red, orange and yellow so I cut them up into 2" strips and framed them accordingly...these colours work well together

looking good!
