Back to routine

Hi friends,

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!

Covert Robin- what I made for Kat

A while ago I mentioned that I participated in the Covert Robin handmade gifts exchange, I just received my gifts and my swap buddy also got the one I sent, so it’s time to share what I made, and what I got (this will be in another post.) !

My Covert Robin buddy is Kat from Modern Vintage Cupcakes in New Zealand. From her blog I knew she adores 40s and 50s styles and oh my! she sews a lot of nice and elegant dresses! Although I sometimes sew for myself too, I know very little about vintage style. As I read on, I found she is also a mom with little kid. There’re several thoughts running through my head about what to make for her, what fabric to use, and what kind of prints she may like. At last, I decided to make a pair of indoor slipper and a wet bag.

More zipper pouch!

I do love the Nekko coin purse I made not too long ago and how it looks on my key chains. But I soon found out it’s not big enough for cards. Erhhh…..  My idea is, when I go pick up my kid from school, I can just take my key chains with me. (without the shoulder bag, purse, etc.)

So here it is my new coin/card pouch!

Nekko coin purse


I bought this super kawaii Kokka canvas fabric not too long ago and thought it will be nice for a small bag like coin purse.  It’s fully lined with solid blue canvas fabric. The finished size is 3.5″ x 4″, just the right size to attach it with my key chains.
