Red Songket.

I really get excited when once in a while I get to do exclusive product. This time I get to make gift boxes out of genuine songket. These are for a friend of Red Songket, a gift shop in Penang.

A piece of 'samping' can clad 2 big boxes. Cutting the songket is tricky as I want to use most the gold thread woven area.

Recently Omar got me an iPad for my internet activities, which inspire me to make a big bag. With this bag I can make room for my iPad and many other things.

For this design I use a pale grey full grain leather for the handles and trimmings. Chah comes with inter changeable handles. Bag closes with a magnetic button.

Hand handle is made of round rolled leather. Bag measures L 45cm x H 33 cm x W 13 cm.

This is the first bag done, I still need to improve the dimension and finishings.

Oooooo...matching notebooks!!!

I always keep a handy notebook in the bag. Why not create matching notebooks?!!
Make them in 2 sizes, - A 5 - 75 pages, A 6 - 50 pages
Notebooks are refillable.
Closure - leather strap with magnetic button.

These are matching to Rohani, Spring purple flowers.

Harry to match.

I also made matching wallets to match the Rohani bags. Instead of patching different fabric, I cut and patched the same fabric. I like the effect of the shadow, texture and stitching lines.

It is fun to have the ability to make these, and the fact that my sisters like them so much.

Yellow and Brown.

In between making bags I make time to have some Yasin covers done. This time I pick up this beautiful fabric in yellow and brown.

Such lovely gifts to receive.


This bag is for my sister,...Rohani. She gave me this black fabric to make bags. I finally decided on this design. This design is feminine, sweet and spacious.

Black with roses print.

Shoulder straps and flap are of dark brown leather. Flap closes with hidden magnet.

Fav 2011

I have promised myself to produce as many as possible for my trip back to Shah Alam in June. Until last week I only manage to have these done. I decided to make Fav in patchwork fabric and a beautiful pink material.

First time when I saw this fabric I already knew the bag that I want to make. I can only imagine it, in the elegant silhouette of Fav. This time I accompanied the bag with matching notebooks.

Made these book myself the way that I want, so that they can fit the covers that I've made.

All 3 Fav in a row.

After completing the first Harry,..I was inspired to make 3 more colors,...colors from the same charm-pack.

I like this olive green so much, matching it with other colors to get the effect that I want was difficult, but the end result is satisfying.
