Drawstring Bag Pack: One of a Kind

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and hello everyone.

OH, so much drama involved in making these 3.
How much do you like them in the first picture?
I love them much. I mean mucho!

ONE of a KIND. OH, this is so exciting. Featuring my Drawstring Bag Pack, in 3 colors, ALL is cool! The blue and black (I called them as Si Biru Hitam) are made from jeans fabric and the pink one is from canvas fabric, sometimes known as heavy cotton. They're GREAT for outdoors!

OH, I love it even more when my dear IZZAH pose it this way.
Look good on her!

Can I say that this is actually my very first appearance on my own blog?
Excuse me, but it seems true!

YEAH, it's me with my bags! Hola!

By the way, the bag is 19" x 14" in size, with pocket, special made for comfort. Suit us and kids too! Great for active, daily use. Rm30 each.

I had so much fun shooting with the kids at the Lake Garden, Taiping. Yes, they have their own agenda, and me with mine. I wish that I could take more shots of them posing with my bags. But the fact that they're really have fun, enjoy playing, exploring the lake and the trees, it's all that matters.

Run, baby run! 
YEAH, they're all getting sweat!

The sky is blue
And so are you."

That's all for now.
Have a blissful weekend.

A Zippered Bag, with Fabrics and Faux Leather

Assalamualaikum and Hello everyone,

How are you doing?

It's a post with lots of pink and black!

I owe someone for this post (^,~) Someone that actually made me sewing this, and the guts came later, pheww! Another version of my homemade bag. This is a zippered tote bag, sewn with quality fabrics, lining and pockets inside, also with faux leather at the bottom and handles of the bag. 

Closer look for the bag when we fit in some books and tablet. The bag is actually big enough to fit laptop and big items. But please get ready to carry a heavy bag then! LOL.

A mom's bag could be full of nothing but the kids' books and stuff only.

By the way, the bag is 19" x 14" in size and it's comfortable for classes, labs, outdoors, shopping, etc. The bag has linings and it's WASHABLE. Special MADE for comfort. This is my first time sewing a large zippered bag. A little chaos, mistake, confusion here and there, but YES. It's a happy feeling to finish things that you don't know how it actually starts! I learn to improve more.

AMEN! That done in secret is blessed by God. Don't cancel it out by seeking a blessing (i.e. attention or praise) from mere humans.

"Do what is RIGHT, not what is EASY"

Definitely not the best way to style the bag! Boys do this. LOL. I made it to be extra long and wider than the standard size, So that it can fit big books and stuff at the same time.

Venue: Taiping Lake Garden, Perak, Malaysia.
Big helps behind the scene!
Thanks a bunch!

Last but not least,
if you wanna try making own zippered bag, tutorials are everywhere!
Pinterest and Youtube are my secret bestfriends!

Above is the video that I refer most when sewing.

I hope you enjoy your stay.
Thank you and have a blissful day!

Drawstring Bag Pack for Daily Use.

Assalamualaikum and Hello friends,

I know it seems a little quiet here.

But if you could hear us in real life, it's very loud in here actually!
I have good stuff and great pictures to post!


Who loves bags? Put your hands up please! Tote bags? Drawstring bags? We do!

I'm sharing my favorite personalized bag pack that I made that day.
YES, that day.

Run baby run! YEAH.
ANNISA plays her part well, styling with the bag pack. 
I'm so in love with it. So YOUNG and ACTIVE!
Look good on her!

The happy IZZAH. My kids love it. I love it too!

By the way, the bag is 19" x 14" in size,
using quality fabrics, strings and leather labels to complete the set.
WASHABLE. Special MADE for comfort.
Suit us & kids too. Great for sports, classes and outdoor activities.
Best PRICE: Rm30

I call the fabric as 'Jepun / Japan' pattern.
Why Jepun? Not so sure. That's all I can think when I saw the fabric at the first time.
Thinking how close Japan with floral, bamboo tree images.

My little HANAN was styling with the bag too!
It suits us and kids, but of course it's kinda extra big for her.

Moments to treasure with PAPA.

OH, almost forget this one.
This is a zippered make up bag, 8"×5.5" in size and it amazingly fits your handbag.
Rm18 only.

OH my models! ALHAMDULILLAH. It was a happy shooting. I think the best part of the session, was when my kids join me too. They're all having fun styling with the bag. Thanks so much dear kiddos, my bags will look boring without you all. Not forget to mention my bestie, Husna of Oh My Lunaa, one that owns the bags, and one that 'pull the trigger' and challenged me to do what I never did before ♥.

Last but not least, the pic of the bag itself! Closer look for the bag when we fit in some books.
The bag is actually big enough to fit some clothes, bottles, and favorite things when you go out.

So, that's it for now.
I promise to be back soon.
OH, can you see the purple buttons at the right corner of my site?
Hit them a click!

Pregnancy Diary for Mommy-to-be!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and Hello all,
It's Monday and I'm focusing on the blog updates.

 I'm far behind schedule but the good news is I'm free from orders and I think this is really a good chance to finish everything in my drafts!

Let's start with this cute pregnancy diary! This is an A6 size handbound book with french stitching covered with matching fabrics and also with elastic band as closure!

Oh, this is adorable! A pregnancy journal with cute images at 1st page ♥ Special made for dearest mommy-to-be, she asked for floral notebook with french stitching, and here it is!

I use Lawn Fawn clear stamps set (Plus One) for those cute images.
But yes, you can always sketch or find cute images online, and print them out before binding.
The options are boundless!

Details and PRICE:
A6-sized books, with hard cover.
160 pages, using 125gsm brown KRAFT papers.
Inclusive of a cute little charm, and elastic closure.
Handbound (French or Kettle Stitching)
RM40 each.

Sometimes I mix papers in colorful pastel colors, of same quality and I still use wrappers for my cheaper books, (yes, because wrappers come with lots of great images!) I accept orders for bigger books A5 and A4 perhaps, but the price will change. You may browse other posts, and might find your one there!

Hey look! A rocking horse! So much like the carousel horse at the funfair. I love it very much.

I always love yellow thread for my books. It would brighten anything. I did french stitching using cotton cord and I admit that I have to practice more. Cotton cord took so much patience compared to the crochet thread that I always use.

Last but not least.
Let the pictures tell more.

I've put some media icons on top-right of the corner.
So don't forget to give them a try!

Thank you.
And have a blissful day!

Introducing "Sewn by Craftyanathirah"

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and Hello all,
I hope you're doing great!

It has been a great year of 2014, with all ups and downs, great memory & great MADE too.
I'm sorry for not posting anything in past few months. I didn't know what's actually kept me busy.

ALHAMDULILLAH. I made these all. SMALL projects but HAPPY doing.

My very first project introducing my MADE: "sewn by craftyanathirah"

I'm blessed with a very kind husband, knowing that I love sewing things, he bought me a serger & sewing machine 4 years ago, and all I did was only sewing some pillowcases & fixing torn clothes. Shame on me. I could have done more! I never thought that sewing simple projects like these can be FUN.

YEAH. I am now officially taking orders for pencil cases & make-up bags. It's a dream come true, to sew small things, yet very useful in our daily routine. Happy to mention that I use quality fabrics, with quality zippers & leather labels to complete the set. ALL bags have linings and they're washable! Special MADE for comfort. 

My pencil cases in REAL hands! This is my little effort for you to see how my pencil cases look like with REAL model. I know that sometimes, pictures of products themselves won't help us estimate the real size of the products. 

The picture was taken at my home, in Terengganu where me & my siblings grew up. Opps, spotted my kid, Annisa at the back! She's playing around during the photo-shoot. And by the way, the model was my sister, Dyla (AD PHOTOGRAPHY). She graduated in Accountancy and she loves photography too! 

Of course I can't stop making at 3. I'm also working on other design as well. Below is one of my favorite found. A fabric in brown color with lots of big flowers, to match-up with dark brown zipper. 

Exciting projects to sew everyday! Alhamdulillah.

"Sewing is cheaper than therapy"

Oh yes, I hope you like my long books too! I was thinking that maybe taking shots of pencil cases with books could create a calm study mood. You can read more about my long books in my previous post (^,~)

If you're interested in making your own pencil cases, tutorials are everywhere, and super easy to find. Both youtube and pinterest surprise me everytime. 

Kindly pin this if you love what you see, and contact me to own one, or two! Best price: Rm18 each, you can always email me for details, and I'll make it special for you. So enjoy peeps! And yeehoo!
