It’s been quite a while since last time I wrote something. Now I am finally back to my normal life. Kid is back at school earlier this month, and I got myself more “me time” to sew and create.
This is his new backpack. His old one is still nice and good, but just too small, not enough space to hold his nap towel/pillow, etc. So this time I made sure it’s big enough. The material is a nice waterproof nylon from my friend, I love the print! I don’t know what it is called, but she got it oversea. The lining is rip-stop nylon from my stash, it’s water repellent (not waterproof though). I also added red piping to the backpack front. The pattern needs a few more tweak though, but overall I like how it came out.
This summer a lot happened in my small world. My kid and I took a month-long trip across the country to see my parents, and also to overseas in two different countries for a family event and see my in-laws, relatives, and friends. It’s fun meeting relatives and friends after so many years (some of them I didn’t see more than five years!), and at the same time it’s super tiring. My husband joined us in the later part of our trip, and we made home safely after 15+ hours of international flights. Now the summer is over, I want to remember all the happy moments and leave behind all the sad parts.
Recently I focus more on creating items for my Etsy shop and also spend more time on machine embroidery. I will share more on upcoming posts.
Have a great day!
