It’s that season again where we crafters get to show off and share our creations!
One day I called my friend for a cup of coffee and she said she was sick in bed. Instead of making chicken noodle soup (because I don’t know how to), I made a get-well card for her. That evening I walked to her door and hand my “paper soup” to her husband. My friend got better next day and I guess my soup made out of fabric scraps must had some cureing ingredient.
I am obesessed with my girls’ drawing. Maybe because I don’t have any drawings of mine left when I was my girl’s age. My mom saved every awards, an apron I made and even a perfect attendance slip but not my writings or sketches. I often wonder if my drawing was as good as my girls or how it woul feel like compare to my kids’. So again, I traced my 4 years old Claire’s drawing and colored it with copic markers. I am very happy with the result and want to share with you today. 1.Let your kid draw on a qualityRead More →
All of my three daughters love to draw. Whenever I go out, I would usually toss into my bag pieces of coloring paper, crayons, and something to write with for my kids to keep busy. When I’m in hurry, I would forget to bring crayons or pencils. So often I find myself sheepishly asking the waiter to borrow pens for my kids to doodle on napkins. But that’s a thing of the past. I am determined to be more organized! I finally made my own portable drawing kit! I no longer have to bother those busy waiters for pens. This 5×6.5 inch portable kit keepsRead More →
I used to store all the leftover laces in a ziplock bag. How about you? Are you one of those people who alway organize their sewing supplies neat and pretty? If you are, I want to be your friend right away.
Wrap your notebook with fabric and measure. I made 1/8inch bigger than the notebook size and add 1/4inch seams. Iron fusible batting on the wrong side of the cover. I usually draw directly on the fabric but if you are not comfortable, I recommend drawing on the paper first and then trace them on the fabric. That way, you can create multiful images for future use. Cut colorful fabrics as in the picture if you want to add some colors as I did. Glue the fabric pieces with all purpose glue or fabric glue if you have it.Read More →
I finally finished 12th Christmas tag making. This is sneak peek of my advent calender. As soon as my hubby finish the board, I will hang them nicely and brag about it.
Here is another Christmas tag idea. I have many tag ideas but I have no idea what to give Santa.
I am still into Christmas tag making. I will keep posting my ideas so please stay tunned.
Beautiful Friday morning here. I hope you are enjoying the last two months of the year wherever you are. I want to share my tea mat idea today. I have made over hundreds of tea mats or mug rugs so far but still love making this little project. First draw a simple cupcake shape on the paper and trace it on the fabric you like. Cut out each fabric pieces by hand. finished size is 8inch x 5 1/2inch. cotton: 3inch x 5 1/2 inch (+seam) , linen: 5inch x 5 1/2inch(+seam) , back fabric 8inch xRead More →
Often scrapbooking is considered an expensive hobby. That’s what I had thought for long time. There are so many scrapbooking supply designs out there to choose from, but unless you’re right there when they just put on the clearance price tag, you will likely end up spending a lot of money just to create a page in your scrapbook, depending on your preferences. One day, I realized that I could easily create my own design without spending so much and it would be unique. There are always things at home that I can re-use to give them “new life”.

It took me two whole days to embroider 4 years old Claire’s drawing on linen. I am sitting in the middle of messy house with back and neck pain now.
