Personalized Wall Organizer

   Today I finished off another sewing project. This time a special gift for a very special person - my lovely sis. A personalized wall organiser. Personalized will be an exaggerated word. I just sewed her name on the top... that too with a lot of difficulty. Nevertheless she loved it and has decided to hang it on her hostel wall.

You can store all kinds of things in these - Bills, Slips, Craft Items  & even Bathroom Supplies !!

  Would you like to know how I made this??? Well, I had a old white jeans lying around in one of my closets. It no longer fitted me. So i decided to re-purpose it to a wall organizer. I just used one of the leg piece to create this. So I have remaining leg to create another one of these organizers.

 One can always buy these stuffs at shops or online stores.I have been tempted many a times to buy one of these. But the pleasure & satisfaction of creating one yourself cannot be brought elsewhere. As always, I enjoyed myself while making this. Hope this will encourage you also to create one for yourself.
Happy Sewing !!

Sewing - My New Hobby

 A couple of months ago, I brought a new sewing machine for my mom. I have never be interested in sewing... until i laid my eyes on the brand new USHA allure machine. It was love at first sight I guess. I started stitching just like that. And i have already stitched more than 10 project, in-spite of having a newborn... isn't it cool. I find time to make something new wen my baby falls asleep. He's very demanding when awake ! :)

Isn't he lovely !! :)

And here is my sewing space

 Since I am a beginner, my stitches are not perfect... In fact there are lot of issues. But I am surely improving. Here are some the things I made.

  Hop on to Makeit-loveit to know how to make these cute fabric baskets. She has given such a nice tutorial to making these professional looking baskets..                                                            


Another small bag to store my sewing supplies 

          and that not-so-looking-good dress that the doll is wearing was one of the first things I made

 I am a Geminian and its quite surprising that I have been able to hold my attention on my new hobby for more than a month now. hope I'll keep stitching for a few more months ;) ... see I don't trust myself.

And yeah this is my very first Blog !!! So do tell me how you like it... Would surely love some inspiration.
