Draw String Bag with Hexagon Patchwork

Hexagon again! They are really easy to make!!! I used pink and green fabric to make this draw string bag, which will be one of the gifts for my friend's birthday. The other gift is a tote bag. This draw string bag measures 15cm x 15cm, I guess it can be used to keep cosmetics...or napkins. 

I just bought 1 yard sew cherry green dots from the fat quarter shop. It's on sale! I really love it. Green is always my favourite.

Tote Bag for a Friend's Birthday

This is a gift for a friend's birthday. It's around 31cm x 30cm, can be a lunch tote (keeping wallet, tissue paper and cell phone when go out for lunch) or a document tote. 



I like those pink flower buttons. They are gorgeous~

I learnt the cross pattern from a Japanese magazine. My favourite pattern recently ^^.

Organizer Basket and Coin Bag

Finally I made a organizer basket for some of my messy cutleries. In fact I need at least 3-4 of this, but I just had the mood to make one. My cousin and his fiancĂ©e in Canada will be coming to Hong Kong in December. They will stay at my home for 3 weeks. I keep telling myself that I have to make more to organize my messy cutlery drawer before they come!!

I made one for chopsticks long ago, you can see part of it in this picture. I didn't use any batting for it so it was not very good. Will definitely make a new one for chopsticks too.

I read the following pattern from a Japanese magazine and I used the pattern to make a coin bag for myself. I don't have a coin bag for years already as I mostly use electronic money nowadays. However, I go out for lunch with colleague more often now and it is more convenient to have some coins when you pay your share. Therefore, I need a coin bag now.

This was the first time I sew a zipper bag. My skills are not good. Practice makes perfect. I'll make some more zipper bag. ^^

Cell Phone Case for my Husband

The bunny looks so contented!

My husband has been asking me and keeps reminding me to make a cell phone case for him. He thinks it is easy to make one as I only have to use the machine to sew the fabric together, and I should make things for him first instead of making for others. 

I told him as an "artist" myself, I hate repeating the same thing. I have already made a cell phone case for myself and my sister, therefore, I do not want to work on cell phone case...Even so, since he made his request, I have been thinking the design of the case. As I'm quite into making hexagons these days, I resolved to make a cell phone case with some hexagons on it. I think it turns out quite nice.

By the way, I have some spare Christmas charms. If you are looking for similar charms, you can check them out at my etsy shop. They are great for any Christmas projects. You may consider sewing them on your fabric projects, which I think it will definitely make your project looks UNIQUE and cute!

Linen Tote Bag - Wonderland Rabbit

Finally, I used the wonderland rabbit embroidery to make a tote bag. This bag has 2 sides. I embellished the rabbit with a beautiful lace and put some floral hexagons under it on the front. This is the first time I made hexagons. They are so easy to make and they really add value to the whole design.

For the back, I used different green fabrics to make 8 hexagons and sewed them in a line. Honestly I like the front more, but I think this 2-sided design makes the bag more practical! I guess it is suitable for both mommy and daughter haha!!

This bag can be wear on the shoulder but I always like to wear tote bag or hand bag this way :

I just listed this in my etsy shop.
