Salam Ramadhan...

Hope u all will maintain your work okey !!
Just to share about the Label Tutorial...easy and all of you can do it money and get better with your own design..right :-)

I have no time to make the tutorial but today I found it from one blogger and I will share here...same technique with the same result...

Now we learn here...

 Labels can be quite expensive, so I thought today I would share how I make mine. There are lots of fantastic tutorials out there by other crafty people, but mine is a little bit different - I am going to show you how to design a logo to use on your labels as well. This is not only great for people wanting to add a professional touch to their sewing projects, but also for parents who need to put name labels in their children's school and sports clothes and uniforms.

Pin It

Computer and Printer
T-Shirt Transfer Paper
Ribbon (I use 1cm wide polyester grosgrain or cotton twill)
Iron and ironing board
Cigarette lighter (to melt ribbon edges so they don't fray)

To create the logo on my label, I used Picnik. I know they are closing their website in April, but you will still be able to use it, they are moving all their services over to Google+.

*Edit - Picnik is now closed. Another great site for photo and image editing is PicMonkey.

First, upload an image to Picnik. Unfortunately you cannot start with a blank image. Go to 'Stickers' on the tool bar, then choose 'Geometric'. Cover your entire image with a rectangle and change it to the colour you desire.

Next, go to 'Text' and type in the text you would like on your label. Play around with fonts and colours until you are happy.

Add a little logo if you would like to - the bird I use is available in 'Stickers' along with many other lovely little pictures.

Next, use 'Basic Edits' and crop your picture into a rectangular label shape.

You are done - click 'Save and Share' and save it somewhere easily accessible.

Next - open a word processing document (mine is MS Word) and create a table. Mine has three columns and is the length of an A4 page. Insert your label image into the first cell and resize it to your liking. Copy it, highlight the whole table, and paste it. You will now have this:

Now time for printing. Important - do a practice run with some plain paper before using your tshirt transfer paper, it is too expensive to waste! You will notice that my logos are not mirror images - most computers will do that automatically. Your practice run will allow you to check that your logo is not too wide for your chosen ribbon.

You need to click 'Print', then click 'Properties' and in the 'Media Type' box, there should be an option for 'Tshirt transfers'. Choose that option and your logos will print as mirror images, so they are correct when you iron them on.

If your computer does not give you this option, highlight the image in the first cell, click on Picture Tools, and choose 'Rotate', then 'Flip Horizontal'. As before, copy your image, then paste it into the rest of the table.

When you have printed, your paper will look like this (without being hacked into of course!)

The next part is really easy! Cut your logos out and iron them onto your ribbon, making sure you have read the instructions on the transfer paper package. Make sure your iron is set to a dry cotton setting - no steam!

When you think they are done, give them another iron just to be sure. Let them cool completely. Then carefully peel off the paper backing to reveal your lovely labels.

Cut them up, seal the ends gently with the cigarette lighter, and you are ready to sew them on to your projects.

If you need any extra help, feel free to email me, tweet me, or send me a message on Facebook. I would love to know if you make some! Please share a photo over at my Flickr group!

Done.. easy right...let's try it now..and your product will have a Label now..
HaVe FuN :-)

Hii..Hope you all have a fun today yea :-)

Today I want to share with us about the FeLt D@hLi@ FlOwErS...very nice and just give a few minutes to learn...i'm sharing here for my reference and also for you to get this tutorial :-)

Dahlia flowers are so gorgeous.

I used this tutorial from It's the Little Things, but I made a few slight changes. I've seen a lot of similar flowers floating around Pinterest, and I am so glad that I decided to make one.

These are so much fun to make, require absolutely no sewing, and look good in so many combinations of colors.

Here is a free template of the stencils I used.

First, cut out 3 different sizes of petals to use as your stencils. Cut the large one from a 2 inch by 2 inch square, and make each of the next 2 a little bit smaller. I have included a copy of the stencils I used. You want to be careful when tracing and cutting, but at the same time remember that in nature every petal is slightly different from each other.

Now, using a hot glue gun, put a dab of glue at the end of each petal, and pinch it together until it dries.

Cut out a felt circle. Mine was about 3.25 inches in diameter.

Start gluing the outside ring of petals first. Lay them out before you glue them down to make sure that you know where they will all go. I used 12 petals for the outside ring.

Continue on with the next ring. I used 10 petals.

Now glue down the inner ring. I used 8 petals.

There are a lot of fun things to do with the center. You could use a little felt rose. I wanted to make it look a little bit like the center in the photograph of the dahlia above.

Here is another tutorial for the center flower.

Cut a thin strip of felt about 1 inch wide and about 8 inches long. Cut lines about 1/4 inch apart all along the strip. Do not cut through the edge {although if you do it will be easy to attach in the next step}. Start rolling the strip from one end, adding a little glue here and there as you go. Glue the end shut and then glue this little flower into the center of the dahlia. The final flower ends out being just under 6 inches wide.

You can do it right now...For me..just look and can do it after RAYA very busy in sewing Baju Raya..Hope you will enjoy :-) because of that I noted as a reference for me...more works to I just leave here to check out later...

Okey..see you soon...Bubbye :-)

2—3/4"-diameter buttons
Polyester fiberfill
Dollmaker’s needle
Water-soluble marking pen
Finished pincushion: 3-3/4x3-3/4x1"
Quantities are for 44/45"-wide, 100% cotton fabrics. Measurements include a 1/4" seam allowance. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.

Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on Download this Project to download full-size pattern pieces.
Make templates for patterns A and B. Be sure to transfer the dots (matching points) marked on the patterns to the templates, then to the fabric pieces. Fold print No. 2 in half to cut Pattern B.
From print No. 1, cut:
2 of Pattern A
From print No. 2, cut:
1 of Pattern B

Assemble Pincushion

1. Using sharp scissors, at marked dots on B strip clip halfway into seam allowances. Take care not to cut into or beyond seam lines.
2. Fold B piece in half widthwise and sew together open short ends (Diagram 1). Press seam open.
3. Matching dots, sew one long edge of the B piece to an A square (Diagram 2).
4. Matching dots, join remaining A square to unsewn edge of the B piece, leaving a 1-1/2" opening for turning along one side (Diagram 3).
5. Turn pincushion cover right side out. Stuff firmly with polyester fiberfill. Hand-sew opening closed.

Finish Pincushion

1. Thread dollmaker’s needle with ribbon. Stitch down through center of pincushion at mark, leaving a 4"-long tail of ribbon on top of pincushion. Wrap ribbon up over one side of pincushion and stitch down again through center of pincushion (Diagram 4). Pull ribbon snug against pincushion side, being careful not to shorten ribbon tail. Repeat with remaining sides (Diagram 5).
2. Trim ribbon ends to 1/2". Fold each end in half, and whipstitch to pincushion.
3. Center one button on pincushion top over ribbon ends and a second at bottom center. Taking long stitches through the center of pincushion, sew buttons firmly in place.

Today just to sharing...

I found one more pin cushion...its more beautiful and cute...also can be use for the headband or some other else...

Let's we see this TuToRi@L...


Designer: Jane Krause
From American Patchwork & Quilting, June 2005
8x10" piece of felted wool for pincushion
1/4x14" strip of contrasting felted wool for hatband
Scraps of assorted felted wool for flower appliques
Scraps of green felted wool for leaf appliques
Polyester fiberfill
Perle cotton to match or contrast the pincushion wool
Embroidery floss: gold and colors to match pincushion wool, hatband, and beads
24--3-mm seed beads
Fabric glue
Finished size: 4-1/2" diameter

Cut the Fabrics

To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the order that follows. Click on "Download This Project" to download the full-size patterns.
To felt wool, machine-wash it in a hot-water-wash, cool-rinse cycle with a small amount of detergent; machine-dry it on high heat and steam-press.
From pincushion wool, cut:
2 of Pattern A
1 of Pattern B

From assorted wool scraps, cut:
1 each of patterns C, D, and E

From green wool scraps, cut:
2 of Pattern F

Assemble the Pincushion

1. Using two strands of matching embroidery floss and a running stitch, sew around the wool B circle a scant 1/4" from the outer edge (see Running Stitch diagram); do not cut the thread tails.
2. Gently pull the thread tails to gather the B piece until the circle diameter is 2"; knot thread tails.
3. Using the Crown Placement Template, draw a circle in the center of a wool A piece. Pin the gathered wool B piece to the drawn circle on the A piece. With two strands of matching embroidery floss, whipstitch the gathered circle in place (see Whipstitch diagram).
4. Turn the Step 3 piece over and carefully cut a 1" slit in the center of the A piece only. Stuff the fiberfill into the opening until the B piece is full. Whipstitch the opening closed.

Embellish the Pincushion

1. Beginning and ending 1" from the strip ends, and using two strands of matching embroidery floss and a running stitch, stitch down the center of the wool 1/4x14" strip. Gather the strip to fit around the base of the B piece by pulling both floss ends. Knot the floss in place leaving 1" wool tails. Evenly distribute the gathers, then tack the hatband and tails in place with fabric glue.
2. Layer wool applique pieces C, D, and E atop the two green wool F leaves to make a flower.
3. Using four strands of gold embroidery floss and stitching through all the applique layers, stitch a French knot in the flower center to secure. To make a French knot, pull your needle and floss through at the point where the knot is desired (A on the French Knot diagram). Wrap the floss around your needle twice without twisting it. Insert the tip of your needle into the fabric at B, 1/16" away from A. Gently push the wraps down the needle to meet the fabric. Pull your needle and trailing floss through the fabric slowly and smoothly.
4. Tack the flower to the hat where the hatband tails cross
5. Using a single strand of embroidery floss in a color that matches the beads, sew a set of three beads in each scallop on the A piece.
6. Place the embellished pincushion on top of the remaining wool A piece.
7. Using one strand of perle cotton, blanket-stitch around the scalloped A edges to complete the pincushion. To blanket-stitch, pull your needle up at A (see Blanket Stitch diagram), form a reverse L shape with the perle cotton, and hold the angle of the L shape in place with your thumb. Push your needle down at B and come up at C to secure the stitch.

Quantities are for 100% cotton fabrics. 

Cut Fabrics
Click on “Download this Project” to download the pincushion patterns.
1. Lay fusible interfacing, fusing side down, over oval and circle patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern once. Cut out interfacing shapes roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.
2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press oval and circle interfacing shapes onto wrong sides of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. 

Make Pincushions

1. Remove lid from oval box; set it aside for another use. Paint outside of oval box with two coats of acrylic paint using the sponge brush, allowing it to dry after each application. Using fine-grit sandpaper, sand box until some of the original craft paper is visible.
2. Measure around outside of box to determine circumference. Using pinking shears, cut a strip of decorative paper 1/2" wide by circumference plus 1/4" for overlap. Center and glue 10"-long ribbon over paper strip. Adhere strip around box 1/4" from bottom edge using bookbinding glue.
3. Lightly coat outside of box with light brown paste wax; let dry. Buff box with soft cloth.
4. Run a thin line of tacky glue around inside top edge of box. Referring to photo, press a piece of 1-3/8x10" green rickrack into the line of glue so that half the rickrack shows above the box edge.
5. Referring to Oval Pattern, use heavy-duty thread and a running stitch to sew around pink print interfaced oval 1/4" from outer edge. Gently pull thread tails to gather oval until diameter is about 3".
6. Fill oval halfway with crafts sand. Stuff fiberfill into opening until full. Whipstitch opening closed.
7. Stuff fiberfill into bottom of painted box. Mold stuffed fabric oval to fit into the box; remove. Run a line of tacky glue around inside of box below rickrack edge; return stuffed oval to box.
8. Repeat steps 1–8 to make a second pincushion using round box and green print interfaced circle.
