Random Rambling Sunday: Say cheese!

Wow, it's already Sunday and that means it's my turn to ramble here.

Hello, it's Fili here.

Before, I planned to write about my work around this week that was surprisingly dominated by sling bag. Four sling bags, which are pretty different with each other. Unfortunately, I couldn't take any pictures today because of the heavy rain. I couldn't get the natural light so I'll save the topic for another time. Instead, I'll talk about custom made cushion that was ordered by one of our customers.

Lino asked me whether I could make a camera shaped cushion for a birthday present. Making camera cushion has been one of my wish list along with cassette tape and dolphin cushion. I always droll automatically whenever I see those shapes in Etsy:  fresh, well-made and often unexpected. I was curious to make one and see the result. I took the chance and searched for different camera types for reference. After I sent some design of the camera, the customer picks the classic one.

The result is:

The size is 41x31 cm with a simplified design from the real one. The material is fabric for the main body and felt for the details.

Again, I hope the person who received this will be happy and like it.

Happy Sunday!

Random Rambling Sunday: String/Strap Closure for Travel Wallet


It's not sunday anymore, but better late than never.

So I've made quite a number of travel wallet, and this time, I would like to share another one. But it's different than the previous ones because I used different closure. I tried the string/strap closure with small pendant in the end of the string, similar to Indiana Jones' notebook but with a pendant. It's not that usual, but somehow it makes the wallet looks much more classy and unique, especially when I use the Etching fabric series from Moda.

Photos are taken with my mobile phone, so please bear the crappy quality.

That's all from Lino today.

Random Rambling Sunday: 7 Shades of Blue

Night, Fili here

I'll continue writing about double zippered pouch tonight. Recently, I tried different ways to make this pouch. I would like to find the simplest way to make this pouch so I won't get any headache any more. Finally, I get it! Now, the only thing that I need to do is to practice more. Fortunately, I got a chance to make this pouch for my friend's birthday present several days ago. She has two mobile phones and loves blue very much, so this is the result:
