Mother’s Day has just over and that means Father’s Day is coming soon.


I am planning to make a simple but cool matching ties for the men in my life – my Dad, hubby and son and take a family photo. I can imagine it would be funny if I sew with cute fabric .


I can make a matching mini tie necklace with the fabric scraps for myself 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!

Love the idea of framing fabric – the easiest and insexpensive art you’ll ever make!


It works nicely with a simple picture frame or wood frame (tutorial on prettydubs.blogspot.com) to give some colors to your room, kitchen, washroom, anywhere.

As long as we sew, there will be a huge pile of fabric scraps stocking up. Of course you can use the fabric scraps to make a bookmark, or make a nice gift bag if you have got a large piece of scrap. But are there more ideas sewing with fabrics scraps which can be useful and pretty?
