My handmade handy felt handbag (1st Baby)

Hello again!

I'd made myself a maroon handbag. Yaahooo... It is a humble thing but I'm pretty proud of my first baby!
Here some pictures of it.
On one side I'd decorated it with fabric flower with crystal buttons on lower right. And  on the upper part I'd attached a red dangling heart shape key chain.

The dangling heart shape key chain.

My baby also has pleats

On the other side, there is also a fabric flower with crystal buttons but it's on the upper part. The compass key chain is for emergencies ... in case I lost my way around new shopping malls!

This is my first attempt at split stitch embroidery on a pouch.

Thanks to Threadbanger Channel featuring  Jenny Hart in this YouTube below, I've learned to embroider using split stitch:

The pattern is free styled. I'd just drew some fine lines on the fabric and stitched on.... Before that,when I needed to find the right color for threads , I just went with my instinct.  It took me a few weeks to finish. But it worked well after all! 

My husband was happy with it and it turned into "his pouch".  
See you again soon!

First Attempt Embroidery

These are my first attempts to do Hand-made embroidery especially 

free glitter text and family website at

You have to be careful when you do hand-made embroidery on any stretchable fabric like t-shirt . You don't want to over stretched when you hold the fabric on the hoop.That's what I learned through my first experience embroider ribbons on my daughter's t-shirt. 
On this t-shirt, there are two  kind of flowers in ribbon embroidery. In the middle there are carnations and by the sides is the foxgloves. 

                                           The foxgloves on each sides.

           On the other t-shirt , I sewed  ribbons to the end of  the cuffs too.                                                                                                                                                                                                   

The flowers used in this pattern is very simple . The Daises are in three different colors.
The pattern for the flowers below is free-styled.

                                        (On the right side of the t-shirt)
    These are simple techniques with ribbon daisies, roses and leaves.There is an attempt to embroider one tiny leaf using just green thread!(LOL)

                                            (On the left corner of the t-shirt)

This pattern is more intricate and took me a lot more time to sew using these untrained hands of mine. 
It's nice to do free-style pattern. I'm useless at copying well made patterns.
Hope you enjoy this post. See you again in the next post! Hopefully soon enough...
