I went to Bandung with friends from my sewing classes . All of us make one special bag for the trip. We decided to make a sling bag with the same pattern but with different fabrics. Believe it or not we are the center of attention whenever we walk around Bandung :)))

I always wanted to learn smocking because they look so beautiful, especially on children. Since this is my first project I choose a relatively easy pattern found on Australian Smocking & Embroidery Magazine. At first I had some problems with some of the constructions. I'm going through a lot of learning process, on how to sew puffed/gathered set in sleeves, a collar, button, and buttonholes. I feel proud looking at my daughters dresses in something that I made for them myself. My daughters are so excited about their new dress. This motivated me to make another for them.

Now both my daughters are happy with their own quilt, naturally my son wanted to have one himself. I was scrathcing my head on which theme would suit him. Finally, I decided on Spongebob Squarepant and his friends. The blue stripe and yellow bubble fabric was purchased from Thousand of Bolts. The character was sourced from free colouring pages on internet.It took , quite sometime for me to applique the characters to make it look real. With his cute funny faces, I pretty sure he'll like it.
