Grace's tote

This tote is made specially for my niece, Grace. I used this fabric because I know she is very proud of her heritage. Her dad is a native from Sarawak and almost every Gawai (harvest festival) they would travel back to their long house in Kapit.

I bought this fabric from Miri at the handicraft centre. This is actually sarong fabric. There are three distinctive patterns on the sarong. The handles of the bag is made from one pattern.

I used the same fabric for the interior of the bag. Made a pocket for her handphone and purse. I also attached a keyhook at the side for putting her keys.

I hope she likes her tote!!! If not...........any takers out there???? LOL

All done! I love the color of the jade beads!! There are some which are greenish black!
I have set up another quilt on the swiftquilter. This one was made a few years ago. I am trying very hard to get all my UFOs done! Trying to make room for more fabric!! LOL

I started making rosaries more than 10 years ago. My late father was the one who taught me and I ended up making lots of them for family and friends. I used glass and plastic beads, crystals and even pearls. The pearls are the hardest to make because I had to drill each pearl to make the hole bigger for the wire to go through! 59 pearls for a rosary!!! I used tiny fishing weights in between the decades! So if I see any rosary with fishing weights......I made them!! LOL
