The bazaar weekend is here again! I’ll be at the Street Market in 1 Mont’ Kiara this weekend November 19th and 20th! The market starts at 10am, but if you’re heading there for breakfast, swing by and grab some goodies while I set up shop! Psst…Early birds might get some value buys from me. 🙂
We have lots of new fabrics for our adorable little hoot pillows, and if you’re starting on your Christmas shopping, or already midway through, we might have something to complete your list! Choose a gift for the kids from our wide selection of colorful crayon pouches and activity tote bags. Get organized with our handy, multi-purpose reversible fabric storage bins.
When you purchase something from Make Mine Fabric, know that you’re not only going to make someone smile…for every item you buy, we will donate RM5 to the Soi Dog Foundation for the rescue mission that is happening right now in Bangkok. Your purchase will help rescuers and volunteers who are working round the clock to rescue and treat thousands of homeless, abandoned dogs, cats and other animals that are stranded in the floods.
I’d love to meet you, and if you would like something customised, I’d definitely try my best to help! Thank you for stopping by to read this post!
It’s nice to see a few more bins sitting up on my shelf each night…but it sure is exhausting the next morning as I struggle even to just roll over to look at my son (who’s already standing next to my bed, going “Mummy, WAKE UP! WAKE UP!”), give a smile and say “Good morning sweetie, could you give Mommy another 5 minutes puh-leeeeezz!?”. Will I get those precious five minutes??? Nope! My little man has a built-in automatic alarm clock that has no snooze button, and making him sleep late (so he’ll wake up late), doesn’t work either! Of course, I would get an earful from my mother if I kept this young man up past 9.30pm. 🙂
I placed an order for a bolt of Pellon’s Peltex 70 stabilizer yesterday. Can’t wait for them to arrive, hopefully SOON! They are excellent to work with, and gives that ideal loft to my organizer bins. It’s called an “ultra firm” stabilizer, yet it is soft enough to make the turning process so effortless. I’ve tried several other types of interfacing which I purchased in local craft stores, none came close to Pellon.
Okay, here’s the sum up for tonight…I made TEN bins and cut fabrics for another five!! Yay! And now, I am going to get my much needed sleep. It’s almost 6am!! Another 2.5 hours, and I’ll hear a loud “Mummy, WAKE UP!”.

and while I get my fingers pricked every now and then, I’ve learnt (obviously not in a very positive way….ouch!) that this step is really quite critical in ensuring my bins turn out looking great. Tacking, in sewing terms, is making a temporary stitch to hold in place pieces of fabric or trimmings. For this important step, I love Clover’s flower head pins because they are alot sturdier and longer than the regular tacking pins, thus able to hold together the thick layers of fabric and interfacing that I use. The flat head makes it convenient for machine stitching too!
This is how my bins look after they’re tacked, all “assembled” and ready for stitching!
Tacked fabric bins - now you know how they look on the inside ...without the pins, of course!
A closer look at these flower head pins:
Comes in a box of 100 pins in 4 colors.
- Love these Clover Flower Head pins!
I’m going green tonight….picked this one out from my stash and have tacked a couple of bins ready for sewing this weekend. With our humid weather here in Malaysia, and the recent haze enveloping the Klang Valley skies, I have been literally hiding at home, doors and windows shut, with the air-conditioning set to 18C almost throughout the day. This refreshing floral print reminds me of spring, so I decided to work with these tonight.
