Sewing and Stitching is similar to pottery; to create something from scrap into a usable object is full of satisfaction.
I like D.I.Y. anything I could do and enjoy the process of mix matching different materials and color. I used to sew a lot of fabric items, including clothing.
I started making handmade leather bag in 2017 . Both of them have similarities that requires patience and the tricks to a nice item is the pattern cutting.
The following sewing items are made of local source fabric. I wish to collect good quality fabric and produce a product category of Fabric Collections sooner or later.

Fabric from Japan

I had joined a short course of Japanese Style Embroidery in Year 2021. Since then I am obsessed with this stitching handcraft.
I enjoy the process of stitching with many colorful cotton threads to create cutie graphical objects and make them into lovely wearable brooch.
Some of the following items are learnt from the course and made after referencing from the book written by a famous Japanese Embroiderer

There are many ready-made embroidery material pack available in the market. Most of them are from Japan and there are different brands, too! My favourite one is "Cosmo". The following are two items

Upcycling: Small Drawstring Fabric Bag
Since I have learnt to make a drawstring fabric bag from the Embroidery class, I have a sudden idea of upcycling all my old drawstring bags available at home. I guess many people have a lot of them as a free gift
from retail promotion. By adding some nicely embroidery to cover up the brand name on these bags, it would be upgrading into an adorable new items. The following is the upcycled bags I have made except the first one
"Purple Flowers" is a newly made one.

This bag is made of one big piece of genuine calf leather with simple cutting. I have also made another sell item- Leather Tote Bag 001 from the same piece of leather with different cutting.
That one have two pieces of leather on the sides to improve its bag volume and more three dimensional.
