Another Birthday Present

SH's birthday is next month but she's always flying around and I never know when she'll be in town.  Since we finally managed to make an appointment with each other, I made this drawstring bag out of Japanese kimono pattern cloth for her as a birthday present.

I thought that this would be a simple project, but I got the measurements wrong, and I made the inner pocket too big!!  Sigh...... at least it looks presentable after spending 2 hours on it.....

Price of Sewing Machine Dropped!!

Just barely 1 month after I bought my precious new toy - a Brother sewing machine, the price of the very same model dropped by S$20!!  Sigh..... I could have used that $20 to buy more fancy sewing machine feet.....

Security Envelope Art

After looking at how many creative people turn security envelopes into art, I thought I would give it a go myself.  Was a bit disappointed that the patterns on the security envelopes that I had didn't have much variety, but here's my first shot at it:

Just for fun, I've also put it for sale at my Etsy store :)

My son is currently crazy over dinosaurs.  He wants to watch Disney's Dinosaurs and Ice Age 3 (which has ultra cute baby T-rex's!), play with plastic dinosaurs and can name some of them with more prominent features.  This doodle is for him:

Craft It Forward Update I

Some time in February this year, I joined in Craft It Forward.  As of now, I have sent out 2 crafts for this project.  The first one went to Agy in sunny Singapore.  It's one of the many little plush owls that I've made.  Here's a photo of it at Agy's office:
The next Craft It Forward gift was sent to tweal in Canada:

Hope both of them like what they got!  Any takers for the remaining 3 gifts for Craft It Forward?  Just leave a comment on that post and drop me an email about mailing details!

Snowy Blue

Little Snowy Blue here is the only remaining owl from his batch of owls.  3 other owls (Tweety, Angel and Athena Rosie Roly-Poly Redbreast) now live together with Ulysses on the sunny island, Singapore.  If anyone would like to give Snowy Blue a home, you can get him from my Etsy store.
