More ideas from Diary in Stitches

Hello friends,

I would like to share various project ideas that you can create using motifs from my book DIARY IN STITCHES.


This is the first sewing machine cover and I changed the design for the book.

Choose your preferred design and add your own twist. That’s the charm of my book, Mix and Match!



I wanted to show how you can use for hand embroidery instead of machine applique.

I think it’s equally charming. If you are hand emboridery expert, your sewing case will be even more beautiful!


It’s just perfect size so I can bring to swimming pool or my friend’s house for a tea time.

You can enlarged the pattern if you need a  bigger case.


It’s one of My Kitchen series. I enlarged the pattern 120% and made two pot holders.



For some quiet weekend morning, isn’t it good to hand stitch and enjoy this end of summer?




For the sewing illustration beginners, I drew this simple ribbon motif. Practice a ribbon and finish as a pincushion.

And then make a zipper pouch and a quilt. I bet you will be a pro at sewing ilustraion by that time!!

I hope you enjoyed my project ideas and hopefully inspired.


You can get Diary in Stitches on Amazon,, Barnse and Noble and your online quiltshops.


Thank you!

Minki xx

  1. Hello Minki, Creative one!! Such a beautiful book! I have read your book page by page and taken in the gorgeous makes and dreamed of which one I shall start first and then which one will be next. If my projects turn out half as beautiful as yours I will be happy! Such a happy post with dreamy pictures. Something I love about those pears. Maybe the simplicity of them but then the words are perfect.
    Have an amazing week dear friend!!
