Off Duty Sewing

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing great. 🙂

As for me, I’ve been quite tired from rejoining the workforce after my annual vacation. All I do after coming from duty is to get my much needed rest and sleep. And by rest I mean browsing the net and watching my fave tv series online. Hehe. Yesterday I’ve finished my quota of tv series so today I managed to do some sewing aside from the baking I’ve recently done. I haven’t really shared with you about my newfound love of baking, eh? Well, I’ll post something about it next time. Today, I will just share what I created with my Singer.

I used to be assigned in the gynecology outpatient department in our hospital and there I made my first few friends in this land of desert and sand. Sister Sheela (we call the nurses here, sister, fyi) is one friend who is originally from India recently celebrated her birthday. One of my goals this year is to give handmade gifts so I made her a pleated pouch from the current fabrics I have. I just slipped in some beauty products which I knew she uses as extras.

I was quite happy with how it turned out that I made another one using two coordinating fabrics of Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry which I ordered from Amazon. This second pouch I intend to give as a parting gift to Mary Jane, one of my closest friend in the hospital. You see she has decided not to renew her work contract and will be going back to the Philippines in one of these coming days.

I think both pouches are really cute even if I say so myself. With these two projects I feel I have become more familiar with my Singer. I can’t wait for another off to do more sewing projects.

By the way, I got the free pattern and tutorial from Skip to My Lou. So head over there now and try it. 🙂

Thanks for reading.
