I made an ipad cover case two years ago for my hubby. The case still looks great, but you know technology is changing too quickly – he has already got a new tablet. Thus giving me a good reason to make him a new waterproof tablet clutch with my favorite laminate stag echino for Father’s Day gift.

When first saw the Echino camera fabric, I knew it must be useful one day for making something for Dad who is a photo-aficionado. What a great idea for Father’s Day of a fully insulated Echino camera bag and a matching camera strap to carry his favorite camera with care and look damn good, too.

Echino Laminate Shoulder Bag

Finally, I got a good cause to cut into the new Echino laminate fabric which I ordered from online fabric shop (best place to buy Japanese fabrics with free international shipping) last year to make my friend a shoulder bag for birthday.  


The finished pattern will be similar to the shoulder bag on Les Bêtes de Céline, but it is unexpected a little difficult to work with Echino laminate coating as the fabric is a bit “sticky” to pass through the feed-dog of the sewing machine.


Nevertheless, I love the shininess of the Echino laminate fabric!


I would love to redecorate my suitcase with the remaining fabric scraps too!

I want to make a patchwork quilt for long time but I don’t how to start with the pattern until I read this tutorial for a striped patchwork pillow.


It looks so simple but elegant to add some fabric strips, embroidery floss and buttons.


Of course I will make maritime-themed patchwork pillows to match with my beach house :P
