I have long admired Tilda fabrics and I got lucky enough to experience them! I would like to thank to Two Green Zebras for make my wish come true. 🙂 My first impression of Tilda fabric reminded me of very first day when I was given an extra expensive L’occitane hand cream, the smell and smoothness was not like other product I knew. Ever since that day, I try to buy it for Christmas gift or for someone I care.  This Tilda fabric was special like that and so well worth it.

My very first sewing illustration Bicycle Hoop (2014) wasRead More →

Another rainy day! I couldn’t stop using my Stitched illustration, so I made a medium size zipper pouch. Finished size: 7″wide x 9 1/2″ long Batting: I used ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable.
