Nancy Tote

My first attempt at making a tote bag. Ordered by my sis-in-law.
             I made two front pockets using a printed fabric to add colours to the tote as the overall tote is made from plain cloth only.
She wanted to have a partition in the middle ( a zippered one ) hmm...quite tough for me. 

A zippered pocket at the back.

Managed to create the partition. What a task. 

Now you see the partition?

One side of the inner part.

So, I learned to make a tote bag. I shall name this the Nancy tote (my sis-in-law's name).

The Multitasking Tote

This bag is for my younger sis. She wanted a bag from my recently bought book: The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam.  But this one is not exactly like that in the sense that I omitted the drawstring and made the front/back pocket into two parts. 

I've made simple the inside pockets too.

Very Big owh...

My very first "Big Bag". I was quite surprised that it turned out so big. 

But I learned a few lessons from making this.
1. how to do a bellow pockets
2. how to put on magnetic closure
3. how to make gathered pockets.

It was fun making this bag. I'll definitely do it again. 

Learning to crochet

I've been wanting to try my hands at crocheting but years ago, the only shape i could come up with was the long chains which never materialised into anything nice. Then I came across a book in the local library which visualises the technique clearly. It's so simple that even a beginner like me was able to comprehend. So, I decided to give crochet a try. 
Finally, I managed to crochet a simple flower pattern. 

Then,  encouraged from an FB friend who shared a pattern with me,  I made my very own baby beanie hat. (It's not that perfect though).

But  I did it!! That's the real joy of all these. Now I'm hooked.  :-)
A real challenge for me is to find the right yarn and hook size. I'm still quite clueless in this area. Will continue to discover more on this area.

BIG JUMBO pencil case

My friend wanted a very big and boxy pencil case to put in all her  things.  

She also wanted it to be dark in colour so it will not stain easily.

So, i put a black lining for her too.

Well, i hope my friend will be happy to receive this. :-)
