cushion cover ;)

We got an old sofa so my hubby tried to cover it with an Indian design bedsheet. The bedsheet was bought without cushion cover. So, here's my creative part, I cut a quarter part of it and stitched it into two cushion covers. Here my first cushion covers ;)
And here's the back side of it:

Apron and Hat for Chef Tiza

Finally I able to finish my another project, huuuhhh so tired :D...even I don't have any idea now what to write about this apron and chef hat for Tiza, my niece. To make it short, I just used my imagination to make this apron and chef hat, no pattern that I peek from somebody's else project. For sure, it was really a trial and error but I am so satisfied with my work. For the neck tie, I used a little bit elastic just to make sure it will fit to Tiza's neck and velcro to button it, so she can help herself when wearing it.
Aren't God great that He bless us with this brain better than any other animals ;) Even I stitched Tiza's name on the hat...OMG I am so happy, it's really my masterpiece :D *arrogant mode On* hehhehe. Oh ya I used interfacing paper to make the hat stiff, what do you think? Not bad at all right for a beginner? :D
Below is close up of the apron's pocket, just try to be simple by making yo-yo flowers, since the main fabric has colorful pattern of polkadots :)
The last picture is the inside and behind part of the hat. I also used elastic since I used standart head size for 3 years-old girl, 18", but in case it's not big enough, the elastic will help :)

Now, I can't wait to see her wear them and helping her mommy making cookies and bread for her customers :)

The Messy Desk

Here's my messy compact desk :D ... it's small but everythings are there! I will simultaneously do stitching, chatting, get a phone call, drawing, reading, or maybe playing FarmVille on Facebook hihihih on this desk ... Need eye drops for my eyes please :D Well, I read a quote by Albert Einstein about messy desk,"If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what are we to think of an empty desk?”

Peasant Dress for Tiza

Finally I able to finish my dream project, a real peasant dress! After practising to make one for my doll ;) This time, the dress I made for my beautiful and cute niece, Tiza, thinking to send it to her with an apron and a doll specially made by Agnes aunty :)

I got the pattern from Teresa Brady's site, who generously shares the tutorial, thanks Tes! I modified it here and there, I made the arm longer and the dress in an "A" shape. I still found some defects on the dress :( but my MasterJi gave me two thumbs up as a beginner :D She told me to cut the bottom part of the dress a little bit curve instead of straight so the result won't be the sharp at the edge, thanks Sis! I will remember that for my next project, let's see whether Tiza will be comfortable enough wearing it or not *praying mode On* :D Oh yeahh, this is my first creative work together with my sewing machine ;)

Yoga Mat Drawstring Bag

Got the idea from, one of the seller there sells yoga mat drawstring bag. For sure two days ago, I've started enjoying my time with my new sweetheart, a Singer sewing machine :) It's not the sophisticated one but I believe I still can kick my leg to keep being creative.

This yoga mat bag is my second creative work (I'll post my first one later on). Actually I just wanted to use the leftover fabric given by my MasterJi hihihih and another fabric I bought with a dear friend.

I checked this site to guide me how to make it. I used a kitchen bowl that's 15cm in diameter as the round bottom :D I asked another dear friend to calculate the circumference heheheh the pattern occupied my brain too much, just didn't want to add more. I told her if she refused to do the calculation, I won't help her with her FarmVille huahahahah. So here's the result ;)
