I can’t stop making tote bags lately. With my Sewing Illustraion, they are so much fun and so many uses. I spent quite good amount of time to write this step-by-step tutorial. I hope you can make your own tote bag today. If you are scared of Sewing Illustraion, just use your favourite cotton prints or illustrated fabric. Or recycle your little one’s old cloth! Kids’ clothes always emboridered cute illustraions. I wonder why they don’t make same design for mama. 🙂     Again, I used my vey old sewing illustraion for the other side pocket. My 11year Caylin prefer this side. What’sRead 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. 🙂   size is approx 2.5inch x 4inch. Draw a snowman on white felt. Draw a hat and a scar on red felt. Cut out  them and arrange on the tag fabric.   Hand stitch snowman, a hat and a scarf too.   Put the other fabric on top, a quit batting on the bottom, sew them together. Trim the seam.  Through the hole, reverse and close the hole by hand stitch.Read More →

There are certain images you never get tired of. A type writer, canvas shoes, air balloons, rain boots and cameras…… I already drew quite of many images but still enjoy creating more. Today’s model is my 8year old daughter, Chloe. I promised her that she could have mommy’s pouch. 🙂 Again, my card was the inspiration(read more about camera card) for today’s sewing project. 1.finished size: 7x4inch.

  Today I want to show you my scrunchies that I made  a long time ago. My three girls and I have long hair, so we are always looking for hair ties.   This jelly roll pack I found at JoAnn store, I couldn’t help grab them and add them to my shopping cart even though I am not a quilter. I had no idea what to do with these pretty cute but too narrow for fabric scraps. Then I came up with an idea!,it was  scrunchies! spent hours and hours to make them. It was so much  fun and such an easy craft  ideaRead More →

    I am having fun playing with watercolor lately. Just a simple touch of red and green watercolors on white paper gives an awesome result. I try to avoid using special stamper’s supplies, such as embossing powder, heat tool and a watermark ink pad. Instead, I borrowed a white crayon from my daughter’s pencil case. An inexpensive white crayon does all the wonder to tell you the truth.  Just sketch with the crayon and color with your brush. You don’t need to be artistic to draw a strawberry as you see the picture how I drew strawberries. I think I would stick with myRead More →
