Happy Flower Quilts book reminded me of my very first trip to a local quilt shop in Korea almost 15 years ago. I was in between of jobless that time and was looking for something to kill time. As I had always wondered what’s happening behind the showwindow of that cute quilt shop, I stepped in with my sister and that changed my life. The shop was filled with all kinds of handmade beauties such as mini quilts, bear dolls, dolls, home shoes, quilts hats…and lots of cute fabrics. On the center, there was very long worktable and ladies of different ages were sitting around andRead More →

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.

When I was my girl’s age, I learned how to ride two wheel bicycle by myself; many times of falling was the key. My friend let me ride her dad’s big bicycle that’s taller than me.

I drove it to the grass area and fell with a crash. Not only because of that childhood memory, I have always enjoyed drawing bicycles. 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. If you want to make a sturdy bag and pouch that holds it’s shape, I highly recommend Soft and Stable. It’s thiner than other product that makes sewing super easy. And I used Aurifil 12 weight threads for my hand embroidery for the first time and I love the results!   I attached the zipper by hand at the last step. One of my Pincushion 2017 illustrations. And I added “handmade” as anRead More →
