One of my crafters friend asked me to make a baby quilt for her grand-niece. The grand aunty has an eye for these designer fabrics from my stash, we added the black polka dot to give it a modern look.
The designer fabrics from the left are:
– Farmers Market by Sandi Henderson
– Heart to Heart by Robert Kaufmann
– Dessert Party by Ann Kelle
It is a surprise that different fabrics for the binding give different looks to the quilt.

My first order via Instagram.

She had chosen these beautiful fabrics from the Jungle Fun line when Spotlight had a promotion earlier in the month.


As always, at each step I will update the customer. I’ve laid out the pieces following an image she provided me. After moving a few pieces around she finally decided to choose the layout I originally done.


I’ve prepared the puff shells since I don’t have enough pins for all the 63 puffs.


The puffs all stuffed full of the most soft fiber purchased at Spotlight.


The completed quilt with the back and binding using a dark brown cotton.


The quilt has been received by the customer on Saturday morning. Included in the package, was a handwritten thank you note and a small gift (which I have forgotten to take a photo).

Songket Bookmarks

Finally, the bookmarks has been introduced at a book club event last Sunday. I requested a table to sell my book related handmade products.

The sale on that day was nothing to shout about. However, due to my posting on Instagram: Zarina_Craft and FaceBook I’ve managed to get big orders.

Here is the table on Sunday.oct4_15_2 And here is a bulk order from my cousin. oct8_15_1

Custom orders



Batik bookmarks and greeting cards.

The moderators of the group asked us to vote for exchanges to be held for 2015 and this is one of the top five. Proud to be the host for can’t-recall-how-long-it’s-been-running.

My partner is MW and typical of her, providing instructions on how to open the packages. Here are pictures to tell the story.






A Baby Keepsake Quilt

An ex-office colleague asked me to make a baby size quilt out of her daughter’s baby clothes.

Her brother dropped off the clothes at my house a few months back.

However, it took another few months for my friend to see the quilt.

The dimension of the quilt is approximately 35 x 45 inches.

Set about cutting and sewing it up. There were few conversations exchanged to finalize the layout and the choice of fabric.
