A little sparkle in your life...

This is the small granny bag just like the ones that I have been making. But I chose the simple black fabric with a bit of sparkly accent. If you like simple yet unique bags, you would like this one... just the right amount of sparkle, not too much not too little.

For those who have emailed me and contacted me, thank you so much! For custom orders, orders in large quantities, and any other inquiries, please email me at Thank you for your support!

Craft Shopping Party

For those who came to the party, thank you so much! It was fun, fun, fun.... We talked a lot, ate a lot, and shopped a lot. All what we love to do! It was a great opportunity for me to talk to people who are interested in my creations. I hope to continue the gatherings like this one.

Atomy(Korean cosmetics) and Angeni Magic(power stone bracelets) were also there. Of course, I had some shopping done myself. The body lotion I got smells and feels great. The power stone bracelet that I am wearing is just beautiful and makes me feel empowered.

And....last but not least, I just want to thank the great hostess, Ms. S, for hosting the party. Without her, we couldn't have a great time like this.

For those who couldn't make it today. Don't get disappointed. We are planning to have another one. Stay tuned...

Granny Bags

My brand new granny bags. These photos don't do justice! They are much prettier in person. But I guess I need a great photographer. Any volunteers?

When you need a tiny bag...

These are petite granny bags (approx.7"x 7"). They don't hold much like other bags I make. But sometimes you don't need much to go out. When you walk your dog, when you go grab a few stuff at a store, when you go pick up your child... you certainly don't need to carry a huge bag that has everything in it for just in case you need it.
So lighten up. Put your cell phone, keys and small purse in the bag and go!

Sewing continues...

I finally got the zippers I needed for the pouches. Here, more pouches that some of you have asked. I hope you can find the ones you like!


Let me know if you want more than one. I maybe able to make more depending on how much fabric I have left. Also, let me know if you need large quantities for parties or special events.

I also have to make more granny bags. They are all cut, marked, pressed and ready to be sewn. So much to do and so little time!

On the weekend...

Well, it was rainy over the weekend here in California. I shouldn't complain because we have very comfortable weather throughout the year. But rainy days mean no outdoor activities. That means... more sewing!

But I was also looking for some new materials. So the actual sewing has progressed just a bit. It is OK though. I've got lots of great ideas for the future.

 Today, I have added the Hawaiian theme fabric up there for you to see. These have been quite popular so I don't have a lot to go around.

This bag.... so lovely to carry around. Pleated nicely to show the pattern on the fabric. It is a nice everyday bag!

My fabric collections

I have collected lots of fabric as you can imagine (lol). Every time I see fabric I like I can't resist buying. After I look at what I made, I know I made a right decision.

I am showing just a few from my fabric collections. These are great for bags, purses, pouches, and etc. I usually get a few yards of each fabric. If you see something you like please let me know. I can't guarantee how long it will stay available. Once it's gone, it's gone!

Happy sewing!!

A special order for someone....

Here, I am making a pouch for my friend. The combination of fabrics was chosen by her from my fabric collections. What a cute looking pouch it will be!

a work in progress!

This is my pouch that I use daily. It is a good size and comes in handy for carrying my sewing kit on the go!
I love the cheerful pattern on the outside as well as the cute polka dots on the blue fabric inside.

These are some pieces of fabric that I got while I was in Japan last year.

Not only girls appreciate handmade bags. Men often carry stylish bags, too. What a great way to show your style with the patterns like these.
Can't wait to make some shoulder bags(possibly messenger bags?)

Here, some of the bags that I made in the past.

Reward yourself with a stylish bag!

Well, you are busy and multitasking everyday to take care of everything for everyone.
So what do you need? A long vacation... maybe. A spa treatment... nice. Dining out... sounds good. But how about something pretty and unique like these stylish bags that you can carry around! Carry it anywhere you go. It pleases your eyes and shows your style. But most of all, you get lots of compliments! That would lift up your spirit for sure.

Why you have to settle for one bag? You can have as many as you want!

These bags are large. I mean they are bigger then my large Granny Bags. So you are able to carry a lot of stuff you need. If you use a bag organizer, you can transfer your stuff in a minute! That means you can change your bag daily and coordinate with your outfit.
