Step by step: Bendera Garland dari Cheater Quilt

Pengaruh Pandemi

Dalam masa karantina, seperti yang dialami banyak bisnis, kami mengalami pula pace yang lebih lambat baik dalam masuknya order maupun penjualan. Kami pikir waktu luang ini bagus digunakan untuk melanjutkan proyek beres-beres perca yang beberapa bulan lalu dimulai namun sempat terhenti. Menghabiskan lebih banyak lagi waktu dirumah, saya(Fili) mulai melirik kembali isi lemari dan sudut-sudut ruangan yang berisi kantong tumpukan perca. Dimulai dengan membuka-buka Pinterest untuk mencari ide, akhirnya diputuskan untuk membuat bendera Garland. Bendera Garland biasanya digunakan untuk dekorasi ruangan dan juga pada acara-acara khusus seperti pesta ulang tahun, dll.

Twin Tote Bag

Hello, Fili here!

This week I had a little adventure with a Twin Tote Bag. This bag is different from the previous totes that I made because it's two bags made into one.

The bag has two main bodies with one pocket on each sides and one hidden pocket in the middle. The sewing method is like sewing a twin pouch but with a few modification. The bag has a volume (previous twin pouch that I made is really simple and didn't have any volume). I had some difficulties with the top squares, the zipper made it difficult  to sew on the wrong side. I decided to sew the top corner in the inside and covered it with bias binding (always trust bias binding to help your day!).

That's my little sewing adventure this week, see you next time!

Lunch Box


Fili here! I intended to write this post last week but I had to postpone it since we need to prepare our next event. I'm going to talk about our latest finished custom order, a lunch box with thermal lining.

Our customer requested to use a laminated Kokka fabric as the main fabric. It's quite a challenge to sew this one, the laminated fabric wouldn't move forward when I tried to sew it on the machine. I tried a few tricks until  I found that the fabric must be sewn with the wrong side in the bottom or sew the fabrics together with other parts so the laminated side won't stick.

In addition to that, sewing the thermal lining was very challenging. I must resew it several times to make the lining fitted. The thermal lining also looks pretty easy to tear apart, it only consists of a thin aluminium like sheet and some sheer foam. It doesn't have any fibers or grain, so I have to be very careful when sewing it.

This is the photo of the inside:

The lunch box is smaller than the previous one that I made, so I used a single handle on top instead of two handles in the front and back side.

That's it, see you next time!

Hand Stitch Practice

Hello, Fili here :)

I had a little problem with my sewing machine a few days ago: the thread was a little loose every time I sewed thick fabrics. I checked the sewing machine parts, cleaned it, changed the needle but the problem was still there. Probably it's because my sewing machine is already very old. After several times failed to top stitch a bias binding, I thought it's time to give it a rest and do a hand stitch instead. I still haven't mastered the technique to create a neat and flawless hand stitch, not to mention it takes me hours (two to four hours!) to do a hand stitch.

And this is the result of my hand stitch:

It looks better than before, isn't it? The valley and hill weren't as rough as before (see my previous hand stitch) and I must practice sewing faster.

That's it, see you later!
