Sew & Tell - Yufu's Lunch Bag

f0194450_7105575.jpgI told you that almost all preschoolers in Japan bring handmade items to school and that Japanese mothers are busy making these things before the new school year starts. Lots of bags and pouches for pretty much everything. Shoes, a lunch box, a mug, a toothbrush, pajamas, and extra clothes. Though living in San Francisco, Yufu was one of them. She made a lunch bag with her favorite apple print for her little girl who started Japanese preschool here in the city, but the boxy school bag was too intimidating to make, so she asked her mom to handle it. It could have been simplified, but her mom patchworked the pieces to make it more special. And the piping! You know it is all for her loving granddaughter. And look at the cute little lunch box and the sippy cup! I want them to go to work with :-)
Thanks Yufu!

Sew & Tell - Alexis' Bamboo Blouse

f0194450_13204980.jpgOn a perfect Indian summer day, Alexis hopped into the shop in her green leaf blouse. The fabric is made of half bamboo and half cotton, and it is really silky and airy. A perfect summer blouse! Sorry, I forgot to ask what pattern she used, so keep this photo in your mind when you go pattern hunting. I love it when more and more people are sewing their own clothes.
Thanks, Alexis!

Sew & Tell - Lisa's Library Tote

f0194450_925026.jpgThough the summer is gone, we are having a nice Indian summer here in San Francisco, and Lisa's tote reminds me of the good old summer days. The pink stripes and pink fish! It's totally a summer tote. And it's Heather Ross' fish! It won't go wrong. A perfect library tote!
Thank you, Lisa!

At Studio

My studio/dinning room is a huge mess right now. It's been so in these past couple weeks. The traditional table setting wasn't working for my sewing, so I placed the dinning table against the wall as a work table. I don't like the way it looks, but it is more functional this way, and it is just temporary. But why I still don't have enough space?f0194450_921197.jpg

Sew & Tell - Bonny's Birdie Quilt

f0194450_8202772.jpgEveryone knows that birdies are cute and big in style nowadays. You see them everywhere. Onesies, burpees, blankets, mobiles...you name it. If you have ever visited Peapod, you know my birdies too, right above my head as I type, but I bet you have never seen them on a quilt like this. Okay, you might have seen a quilt with one bird or two, but not 35! Bonny hand appliqued 35 birdies, and none is identical. How stinky cute is this?
Thanks Bonny!
