Finally….snapshots from last weekend! Have been procrastinating all week to post these pictures taken at the Market last weekend.

Here’s the round-up on MMF’s weekend at the Street Market in 1 Mont’ Kiara – met some really nice people *you know who you are 🙂 * and sales was above-average. A big thank you to all who dropped in to say hi, and went home with some of our home-sewn goodies.

MMF is happy to announce that a total of RM100 will be donated to Soi Dog Foundation in aid of the four-legged victims in the current Bangkok flood. This donation comes from our sales proceeds over last weekend’s Market, so to those who purchased from us, please know that your support has, and will make a difference to the abandoned and stranded animals that are rescued from the floods in Bangkok. Further to this, I am sure that all volunteers and rescuers at Soi Dog Foundation will be most grateful for your generous support. THANK YOU ALL!!

We’ll be at the Street Market again on December 3rd & 4th. So if you missed us last week, make a date with us next week! In the meantime, stay tuned to know about our latest fabric designs that dress our hoot pillows, fabric storage bins and kids’ crayon wallets! Some Christmas goodies are also lined up for sale!


It’s Bazaar Weekend in 1 Mont’ Kiara again!!

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!

p/s Please excuse the lousy photography skills. I took this photo at 2+ in the morning, and was almost falling over as I tried to take a birds-eye view of the tote bags from above my son’s play table. Notice I didn’t even remove them from the plastic packaging?

Twins’ 6th Birthday

My gorgeous twin nieces…it was their 6th birthday last Friday. Happily carrying the bags I made for them, they wanted to have a picture taken with a “fairy” while we were at VivoCity Mall, Singapore.

Beatrice & Caitlynn on their 6th birthday

Beatrice is carrying a 2-tone rectangular tote with bright cheerful sun polkas (Pretty Birds by Pillow & Maxfield, Michael Miller Fabrics) with a chilli red water-drop pattern (One Bizillion BC by Sue Marsh, RJR Fabrics) to match. Caitlynn shows off her all-pink, also 2-toned, bag with a shopping fashionista pattern (Girl Stuff Hallmark in Rose for Free Spirit) paired with an adorable dots in pink print (Crazy for Dots & Stripes, RJR Fabrics).

The twins’ had a birthday party in school, and each of their classmates had one of these bags too, all in various fabric designs and colors. Here are 2 :

Hedgehog in Cream, Michael Miller Fabrics single-tone, square bag for kids

David Walker’s Oh Boy – Animals All-over in White for Free Spirit rectangular bag for kids

These bags were made with reference to an original EmmiGrace Kids pattern, and has been modified to include an extra inner pocket to hold your little artist’s notes, art sketches and other little what-nots. I can also sew in slots to hold crayons (upon request) so your little one can have unlimited doodle fun on the go. This bag is large enough for you to fill with lots of goodies to keep them busy wherever you go. It also makes a good carry-all to hold a small water tumbler, thin cardigan and pocket tissues.

Interested to get one of these? Call me at 012-2869730 or drop me an email at and we can work from there. We love custom orders too, so if you have something in mind, or want a certain quantity of these, let me know!

It’s Bazaar Weekend again!! This time @ 1 Mont’ Kiara.

Hi hi! Make Mine Fabric will be at the Square Market @ 1 Mont’ Kiara (1MK) this weekend, Sept 17 & 18. We will be indoors, but no exact booth location known yet. Do come by and have fun at the all-day bazaar, 10am right up till 10pm!

We have new fabrics for our owl pillows, and if you’re looking for ideas for a baby shower gift, we have the perfect gift idea for you. We’d also gladly take custom orders, so if you’re planning a kids’ party and want some party favors to give away, we could help too!

See you there 🙂

NEW – Crayon pouch for kids!

Your kids will love this one! Our latest homemade fabric goodie will definitely come in handy for mommies who constantly rummage through their baby bags, handbags, backpacks, etc for that one toy that’ll keep little bub quiet while dinner is served, or while on a road trip out of town. I find these absolutely useful when I have tea with my girlfriends AND have to bring my toddler along. It saves me a whole lot of stress trying to hold a conversation while struggling to keep Aidann from whining or wailing (that’s on top of having to restrain him in his highchair!). Sounds familiar? 🙂

Marketplace in Apple

Choose a few and have one in the car, in your handbag, in the stroller pocket and/or anywhere you like! These crayon pouches also make excellent party favors. Originally from an EmmiGrace Kids pattern, this crayon pouch was given a slight twist with its open-fast Velcro flap.

Currently on sale at our INTRODUCTORY OFFER price of only RM29.90 (Normal Price: RM35) each, you won’t want to miss getting a few for your kids, or as a gift to a special niece/nephew!

Each crayon pouch comes well-stocked with 6 Crayola crayons and a notepad so your little artist can get busy straightaway!

Material: Made using 100% Cotton fabrics

Dimension: 4.25″ X 6″ when closed (actual size may differ slightly as all items are individually handcrafted)
