I usually get up around 6A.M. I take a brief walk and some times take pictures of my neighborhood. Then I step into my kitchen, bring out a toaster from the cabinet, start to boil some broth for my hubby’s Korean soup. My three girls usally like to have pancakes or omelet, waffle, bagel with cream cheese with crispy egg fries. With my Bravil blender, I make tomato juice for my hubby and I turn on my beloved Saeco espresso coffee machine. I have been using Saeco almost 10years now (I changed it once.) and always provides me the best coffee. I make a big messRead More →
Last night I look around my table and this idea came up, “why don’t I draw my sewing supplies?” I enjoyed drawing my favourite scissors, pincusion cups, needle book my friend gave me…..and chocolates of course! Creation always requires sweets.
I made quite many coffee bags and gave them away. This morning, I just played with the linen leftover and came up with new version of coffee bag. I should make more in case I have to present somebody someday again.
I originally made this tiny bags as coffee sachet, but they are just perfect as it is. I don’t think my friend would disappoint for empty bags.
Do your scissors want to play hide and seek? Mine does all the time. I made this quick and simple pincushion as my scissor watcher this morning.
For me, making a place mat is like a drawing. Linen is my canvas and colorful fabrics and thread are my paint. I can draw anything I imagine. And also, a place mat is like a writing a letter to me. I try to add a sweet little message so whomever use this mat would enjoy my letter during coffee break or tea time. You had me at hello. It was such a brilliant expression. No one would get tired of hearing it or say it.
I have a couple of bags of fabric scraps from the previous projects. They are too small to make something and too pretty to throw away. Whenever I have a time to sit down, I arrange all the little pieces as a big puzzle. I would like to share how to upcyle your tiny fabric scraps into “crazy quilt” kind all purpose mats. I try to use neutral color lining so I can use both way depends on the ocassion. HOW TO MAKE: You need: fusible interfacing, fabric scraps, lining Cut the fusible interfacing size of you desire.Read More →
