2010 is almost the end, I have finally completed my last order of the year, feel very relief after seeing the pouch! this is the same colleague who has ordered quite many items from me, she ordered this handphone pouch for a Malay friend as birthday present. She has placed the order quite some time ago, but I did not start the work until the deadline is due. I did not have any idea on how to do something differently and this pouch is the 2nd pouch I sew. The 1st one didn't meet my expectation, so I re-do.
When I see the final product, I really like it and I know this one can be sent out.
My ex-colleague whom has the same name as mine ordered 10pcs of felt cakes from me for her 3 lovely princesses and niece. As what she has promised them to have "X'mas gift x-change" but never tell them what the gift will be... my colleague requested 10 different design and complicated cakes.
Since the cakes are for 4 little princesses, so it has been requested to pack individually. These 3pc pack is for her 3 lovely princesses.

Because of the December activity, I had worried for very long how to submit my X'mas exchange gift, was thinking to quit the game was then it will be unfair to the one who supposed to receive my gift.... luckily I got my "shifu" - Sharon, to guide me step by step until I clearly understood what was taught in the instruction. Thank u so much to Sharon!
I chose a zakka fabric for this bag, the side of the bag I used a blue canvas fabric and match with red polka dot. The overall effect of the bag is not easy to get dirt, haha!
The inner of the bag is fully plain cotton linen, just nice to match with the zakka style of the bag. I added a open pocket to keep some small items. The side pocket and inner bag was sew with snap buttons.
当然这不会是拿来送小主人的圣诞礼物啦，小主人的包已经缝好了咯，可是不能 po 上来，要等到小主人收到了才能见光。
Of course this is not the real tote bag for X'mas gift exchange. The bag for exchange will only be posted after our "little master" received it!

I was extremely busy this month, having relatives visit in the early of the month, then started to clean my house after house renovation, bit by bit until finally the last set of wall cabinet has been fixed in.... In my training for the last 2 wks, I had a chance to present my hobby/interest/talent - which is my handmade, hehe.... and from there I got to know her, a lady who likes to speak (at least in my opinion), whom is a certified lawyer and part time trainer too. She was quite impressed with my handmade and wanted to order 2 coin purses for her mum's birthday present. I only been given a week to complete the purses, my god.... tension.... finally I managed to completed the 2 coin purses within the timeline.
1) 10。5cm 的三片式口金包（10.5cm 3pc Coin Purse)
我用了10。5cm 的口金框，包型则是13。5cm 的纸型。原本她向我订了两个 9。5cm 的口金包， 可是因为她提到想让妈妈带着出门，所以我想应该做个大一点的包包吧。
This is my 1st time to sew such a big coin purse, due to the limitation frame I have + time is not allowed, I use the 10.5cm frame and 13.5cm pattern to sew this purse. The product is very big, it can be used as a small handbag. In fact I came out with this design without asking her permission first, coz her original idea was to sew two same size coin purses (9.5cm) but I made my mind to change one of them to a bigger size since she mentioned to me that want to let her mum carry out the bag for shopping.

After stuggling for 2 weeks, finally I am able to share my "hard" work here, it's a patchwork coin frame purse. This is my 1st time to try on this kind of patchwork and I almost gave up when started to sew, coz I couldn't even hold the small tiny fabric tight! But I told myself mustn't give up! Finally I managed to complete the coin purse yesterday.
