Pupa bag

After a busy week, here I'm with my new pattern.  I named this bag 'Pupa' after my name.   At home and my close friends call me pupa named after butterfly stage. 

I always carry big bag after my son's birth. I was bored carrying around my diaper bag.  Finally I've draft out this pattern which is smaller and stylish than the diaper/tote bag but big enough to fit all my things.  I made one for me in black fabric with cream flowers. 

I hope you like this pattern. This bag is ready available for sale. 

 I made lot of pockets to organize stuffs.  Two pockets with Velcro closure in the front A Zipper compartment and  three pockets for small things like mobile,pen,cosmetic. etc


Ready available for sale.

Iphone pouch with pockets tutorial - Valentine gift

Just in time for valentine day; make a beautiful mobile case in 30 minutes!

 This is designed with pockets on either sides, so you can keep your credit cards, id cards or headphones.I used felt cloth liner to avoid scratchs. It is a easy and simple project.

Enjoy your tutorial!

All you need:
Fabric A
Fabric B
Felt Cloth
Fusible Interface


Pocket : 2 piece of Fabric A 1.25"x10"
               Fabric B 2.50"x 10"
               Fabric A 4"x10"
               Fusible Interface 3.75"x 9.50" 

Mobile case: Fabric 4"x11"
                    Felt cloth  4"x11"
Flap : 2 piece of Fabric A 2.5"x4.5"



Sew Fabric A 1.25"x10" on either side of the Fabric B 2.50"x 10" and press (Pic1)
Press fusible interface on the wrong side. (Pic2)
Place the right side together with Fabric A 4"x10" and sew both the short end.

Turn the right side out, top stitch both short end and press.
Sew the Velcro an inch away from the edge. 


Sew the opposite piece of Velcro an inch away from the edge of the Flap and then iron the fusible interface on the wrong side of the fabric.
Place the fabrics facing right side together and  sew around it leaving one end open, so you can turn inside out. Now top-stitch.

Main Mobile body:

 Sew the Flap to the main body fabric and make sure both pieces of Velcro fit. 

Place the pocket on the main body and sew both the long edges.
And topstitch across the center, this is designed for tight fit, so the items will not slip out.  

Fold the fabric facing right side together, sew both the raw edges and leave the flap side open.
Turn the right out.
Fold the felt cloth 4"x11" right side together and sew both the raw edges.
This is litte tricky. Push the felt liner into the mobile case.
Neatly fold the top both fabrics by 1/4" to the inside and pin.
Now sew around the edges.
Ta Da! your iphone pouch is ready along with pocket either side.

Valentine gift - Eye pillow - DIY

It's the month of love and time to get pampered and refreshing.  Gift your valentine a Eye pillow to relax after a stressful day.

Lemon grass is one of the most calming/soothing herbal remedies and numerous health benefit.  It relieves stress, coping with high blood pressure easier, insomnia, headaches, puffy eyes, allergy relief, nausea and many more...

So here I made a eye pillow tutorial for all.  Many people use lavender which is also gives soothing effect. Lemongrass has antibacterial and anti fungal properties which help to deal with lot of health problems.

All you needto make eye pillow:
  • Muslin for the pillow slightly smaller than the slipcover (two panels 9.75″ x 3.75″)
  • Fabric for the slipcover (one front panel 10″ x 4″ and two back panels 4″ x 6″)
  • 1 tsp of dried Lemon grass /lavender/essential oil 
  • 1 Cup of rice or flax seeds or Golden linseed
  • All 1/4" seam allowance
For the inner pillow: Pin the muslin panel, place the right side together and sew three sides, leaving the opening on one of the short end. 

 Clip the four corners and turn the right side out

 Fill the rice and lemon grass by using funnel.

Then sew the open end, inner pillow is ready

For the outer pillow case :  I did a simple embroidery for a personal touch, this is a called chain stitch which i learned during my school days and it's very easy and common.

With right sides together pin the front panel to the two pieces of the back panel. The back pieces will overlap in the middle. Stitch around entire cover.

Clip the four corners.

Stuffing the pillow into the cover was a little challenging.

TA DA! Valentine gift is ready! The pillow can be heated in the microwave or cooled in the freezer,however you like.My hubby will love this.

So tell me what did you make.
