Donation to Soi Dog Foundation in aid of animal victims of the Bangkok flood

Dear friends, I’m happy to confirm that MMF has donated a sum of USD50 to the Soi Dog Foundation. Thank you all for your support!

MMF will be at the Street Market in 1MK this weekend December 3rd & 4th, 10am-10pm. See you there!


Snapshots from the Market Nov 19 & 20

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!

SUCCESS! This tote bag is a slightly larger version of the kids’ rectangular totes. Resized to include double straps that can be hung over the shoulder, this handy tote bag is excellent to use for lunch/coffee dates, an evening at the movies or simply to show off during a stroll at your neighborhood weekend flea market.

Customised for the lady whose daughters are already proud owners of the kids’ tote bags, this one has a roomy inner main compartment to fit a novel or two, your purse (or even a small clutch!), keys, a mini water tumbler and has a total of FOUR pockets to hold all your other necessities and gadgets. It can also fit an iPad and still has room for whatever else that you absolutely must bring.

Instead of a plain-looking zipper, this bag closes with a pastel peach button. This tote bag has “boxed” bottom corners to help it “stand up”. I’ve also used cotton batting in between the fabrics to give this bag more shape yet still soft to touch.

I’m just so glad I got the measurements right and it turned out proportionate! Now it’s off to bed for me!

I simply love these pottery buttons. They are handmade by Lynn whose shop’s name is MidnightCoiler on Etsy. I just might grab these some day, when my creative thinking cap gets to work on new projects.

For now, I will be focusing on my upcoming fabric collage project, targeted to launch in the New Year. 🙂
