My other job

Did this bag many moons ago. It's for sale. Anyone interested please email me at sewprettypink at It has two pockets inside. Size L 16in by W 14in.

My prince has been going to school with either FOS plastic bag or ROMP plastic bag to store his additional books. I have been telling him to choose the fabric and I"ll sew one bag since last year but he refused. Only this year he agreed to it and voila...this is what he will be using next Monday. He chose the fabric.... a bit terang sikitlah kan. Maybe he is using this to attract girls. Nolah.. just kidding.

And this is a sneak preview... enjoy!!!! Not going to let the secret out.

Bag with a padded netbook pocket

A friend of mine requested for a bag with a padded pocket for her netbook. I thought she wanted a separate lappie case but she mentioned again in her email "a padded pocket". Wow that was one challenging thing to do. Since this is my second time time doing a padded lappie case, the cutting of the fabric and webbing was simple. But.. to join the lappie case as a pocket was tough. Took me 3 hours to figure it out. And tadaaaa... below is the output of my 5 hours of thinking, cutting, thinking and sewing.. pwheeehhh.

I didn't make it like a normal pocket because I didn't want the netbook protruding at the side of the bag, which I think it will look awful. If you see at the top left picture, that is the bottom of the pocket , it has got some extra space to cover the side width and length of the notebook. faham ke? faham jelah kan hehehe. Tang corner tulah yang paling susah. In order to make the joining of the padded pocket look neat on to the lining, I had to sew the pocket twice to join the lining and the pocket. First I sew the edges of the padded pocket on to the lining, then I use the bias tape and sew it ontop of the first joint. You can see the result as in the bottom right picture. Can you see that both sides are padded? Atas tu gambar sebelum join the lining to the outer layer.

I also made a holder with velcro to secure the pocket when the netbook is inside the pocket. So tak delah nanti pocket tu ternganga kan, maklumlah netbook tu ada weight sikit. Hope the owner will like this.

And note to all, please this is the first and the last time I am sewing this. No orders please!!! Cruel eh!!

It's time to let go

When I look into my wardrobe, i feel like I was suffocating, I guess that was the same feeling my fabrics were experiencing. I am a fabric fetish and I admit that. I am sure you know what I have been doing right? Taking them out, admiring them and putting them again which is really wasting of time and energy. I think orang giler je buat keje macam ni. I know if I die, these will not go with me. So after thinking hard, some of them have to go to a new owner.

If you look at the fabric below, they are all the same design but different color. They are Japanese cotton. I just could not choose then what color I wanted so I bought all colors. Crazy isn't it. But after buying them I realized, would I want sew this for a baju kurung. Ermm macam budak2 pun ada. My daughter likes it but I dont think she wants to wear this too. I may turn them into bags but I have got 4 meters of each. It will take time to finish and after all saaaaayaaaang nak potong. Kan dah kata..

So dengan berat hati I am letting this go for RM100. They are 4 meters each. I dont think I have the heart to cut for a shorter length. But if you have friends to share why not, because I will not sell for lesser than 4 meters.

Do email me if you heart this at sewprettypink[at]

I am back

Hi everyone,

I am back from my long holiday and back at work today. To those who have ordered bags from me, please be patient. I am kind of "hura hara" at home with kids schooling, nursery, driving classes dan segala yang sewaktu dengannya. If I have the time I will look into your orders this weekend and list them down here so that you will know when to expect your bags. If I don't then you will have to wait for next weekend ya. I am very very sorry.

I guess it is not too late to wish everyone of you a Happy New Year.
