The Hobo Bag


So here's what I'm selling next - a hobo bag! This is a free pattern that I found online and am allowed to use it for commercial purpose. I used the original pattern for the whole bag but modified the straps a bit. Anyway, here it is!

Hobo Bag

Bag Code : 329
Price : RM58

Height : 11" (exculding straps)
Width : 13"
Depth : 2"
Straps length : 20"
Straps width : 2"
* 1 zippered pocket (8") on the inside
* Closes with magnetic snaps

There is 1 zippered pocket on the inside. The bag also closes with a magnetic snap.

I used 2 round rings to attach the straps to the body of the bag.

Here's the bottom of the bag :

This bag is pretty handy- I use it everywhere nowdays! I can take out my wallet and other things easily from this bag. The fabric I used for this bag is from IKEA and for the lining I used cotton canvas.

Do e-mail me at dzaliqa@gmail.com if you're interested, thanks!

Have a good week everyone!

The Handbag

Hello all!

So here's the long awaited post! I present to you my handmade handbags :)

Here are the specs :
Height : 7" (excluding straps)
Width : 10.75"
Strap length : 20" from on end to the other
Strap width : 1.13"
*Flap closes with velcro
*I use interface and batting to add structure to the body of the bag
Price : RM40 (not including delivery charges)

Here are some close-up pics of the polka dot handbag :

Close up pics of the green+brown+blue+white flowery fabric (it's from IKEA by the way) :

As you can see, the handbag is pretty small as I designed it that way. My wallet and handphone fits nicely in it. If you're going somewhere and would like to carry only those two items with you, this handbag is just perfect.

I used batting for the first time while making this bag. That's why you can see from the pictures the insides are not as flat and "nice" like my other bags. But I feel it's better to use batting and interface rather than interface alone for this bag. The result - the bag's good enough to rest you head on, seriously! :) This is because batting's mainly used to make quilts.

Anyway, do e-mail me if you like to purchase one. Have a good weekend everyone!

The Red & White Handbag

Hello everyone!

Here's a handbag that got me quite excited. I've been wanting to do this kind of bag for quite some time. I know it looks like a smaller version of my oversized tote but I had a hard time finding the right measurement for it. So here's the final product! It's red, it's bright, it's scary as I'm not fond of sewing with bright colours. But it turned out great and what else can I do but share it with you guys =)

Here are the specs :

Height : 7.5 " (excluding straps)
Width : 13 "
Length : 3"
Price : RM48 (not including delivery charges)
It has a large pocket on one side of the bag and the bag closes with a magnetic snap.

This bag fits nicely under your shoulder and the size provides easy access to your stuff. Here's how it looks when you carry it.

The fabric that I use here is from IKEA. If red is too strong for you and you'd like this bag to be in other colours, it won't be a problem. So e-mail me at dzaliqa@gmail.com if you're interested! I'm selling this for RM48.

Have a good day everyone!

Here's another view of the bag with a diff fabric that I made for a lovely customer :)

Hello all!

I've been away from this blog for 3 months but somehow it feels longer than that. Anyway I'm back and I'll slowly update this space.

Here's something new for this blog. I've been doing these easy to do sewing projects using free tutorials on the net and I'd like you to try it too. So here's project number one! =)

This is the Sweet Greetings Portfolio. There are two sizes for you to choose from and I made the small one. The large one is a bit of a challenge for me but if you're able to make it, do show me how it turns out! You can get this pattern (and a whole bunch of others) here . Amy Butler's site is amazing (she's amazing too! way beyond amazing) Just looking at the pictures on her website excites me =)

There are two compartments for the folio. I personally think you can use this to put just about anything. My small pen and notebook could fit in here.

So try doing this if you have the time and post up the pics for me to see =)

Anyway, back to the stuff that I sell, I've one stock left for the oversized tote that I made a bit smaller.

The usual dimension would be 13.5" (H) X 18" (W) but for this bag it is 12.5" (H) X 16.5" (W). The usual selling price would be RM45 (excluding delivery) but for this bag, it'll only be RM30 including delivery! As I mentioned earlier there's only one left so hurry! E-mail me at dzaliqa@gmail.com to place your order.

Have a good week ahead guys!
