Handmade with love …..

Handmade gifts are always cherished ,and especially if  its for someone who has similar passion, they cherish it even more.

With the holiday season here I am looking forward to meet up with my people back in India. And so made a few simple and quick gifts……


I made two more pouches, and a journal cover. All the three are quilted. Its been ages since I tried quilted stuff, and found my hands a bit shaky while quilting the journal cover, using my free motion foot. I tried to do stippling on the cover.

Hmmmm…… will really have to practice a lot to become perfect  and loosen up my tight hands.

The pouches were quite simple since I have just done straight quilting. One is a pencil pouch and the other is a cosmetic pouch.


I hope, whoever receives these gifts are happy about it.  If you ask me…I am eager to give it to my dear ones.

So what do you thinks guys…..

The journal cover is a tutorial from Jenny of  Elefentz designs. And the pouches, there are many tutorials out there online.

Its going be another long break for me here at creative moments since I am off for  a two months vacation.  Hope to come back with lots of inspirations and mojo after this break. Till then stay happy and stay healthy everyone……

A zippered pouch….

Hi friends….. I am trying to get back to sewing and quilting, although as slow as a tortoise, I am progressing and I am happy about it.

Today I am showing you off my quilted zippered pouch. A very simple and quick one to make.  I saw this pattern when my dear friend Nima made this pouch. I found it very practical and neat to carry basic cosmetics and daily wear jewelry. This pattern is a tutorial from bloominworkshop.  Perfect pouch, for filling it with all your necessary items that you need to carry along on daily basis.  And also perfect for gifting. I really need to make a few more.

Quilting is simple, using a walking foot.  I have made it bigger than what is specified in the tutorial, since I needed the depth.
Hope you all will send in your comments and advices…
Until the next post, please take good care of yourselves.
