When cutting the fabric ,I adjusted carefully so that one of the pretty rose fell just below the front neck line. The result turned out great .My little niece looks pretty and sweet with it on.

Frankly, I am not satisfied with this purse because I feel that it is not neatly sewn. My hubby said that I am too particular over my sewing. May be he is right ! :)

At first I wanted to apply a dog applique on it, but thinking that every time I pop my needles and pins into it , I might have the feeling that as though I am hurting a poor dog. In the end, I decided the appliqué should be flowers instead. You know, there are flowers made from plastic, so I am not popping the real flowers …..Ha! Ha!
I need to stop here. I start work at noon and now it is time to prepare lunch. Holidays ended, back to work!

A " PingAnFu " inside a small cute bag
The “平安符”he brought back is very special because it is placed inside a small cute bag, some sort like a sachet. Look at the pictures below . The bag is very small ( 2 in. x 2 1/2 in. ), with a small pretty Chinese knot and a adjustable red string attached to it. I supposed the fabric used is a type of satin .
The length of the small bag is half the length of a pen.
Can you see the cute little dragon ?
Thank you , Ah Meng , for bringing this back home for me. I understand you always care for me

I sew the blouse with the puffed sleeves first. I sew the second long sleeves blouse with the rest of the fabric left. The blouses were made to match with one of the maxi skirt I bought from a local supermarket , as shown in the picture below . The two pictures shown below are two brown colour long pants I bought last year. The long pants match perfectly well with these two blouses too .The two pants were bought during a local supermarket closed down sale . The prices for these two pants were extremely low ! One for MYR 10.00 only !

The weather is getting a bit cooler today.This morning I woke up feeling relax and happy because I have nine days holidays ahead of me ! Oh ! Now I have time to sew ! I started my first holday sewing project early in the morning. I sew a cute red and white flower purse .
The sweet red and white flower fabric is 100% cotton.This is a scrap fabric left over from a dress I sew for my niece a few years back.I love this fabric so I bought a few metres and I still have 1 1/2 metres of it keep in my sewing room. A blouse to be sew using this fabric in near future.The plain red fabric was given to me by my sister . It is not cotton and I guess it is of polyester type. The purse is embellished with an appliqued flower motif I cut from the cotton fabric. I machine appliqued the flower , just as what I did for the little dress I made last time.
At first I intended to use this purse for putting coins and small notes , but I found out that its size is just perfect for my car keys instead. In the end I decided to use it for this purpose so that my car keys will not jumble up with other stuff inside my handbag !
