Sock Cat

Little One loves cats!  Whenever we walk downstairs, he'll be on the lookout for cats and when he sees them, he'll be shouting and pointing them out to me.  In one of the books that I borrowed from the library, there were instructions on how to make a sock cat, so here's my handmade sock cat for Little One:

Does a Bob Suit Misha?

I think Misha's green eyes go so well with her party dress.  And a bob hairstyle seems to suit her to.  What do you think?

Batik Cloth

Whenever I go fabric shopping at Chinatown, I'm usually with friends.  On the rare occasion that the Hubby comes along, mostly I'll be ooo-ing and aah-ing at the fabric alone.  So I really didn't expect him to offer to buy me some batik fabric when he was overseas for work.  He even sent photos and asked which ones I wanted and how many metres I wanted of each!  I haven't made anything with them yet.  Any suggestions?

$2 Jacket

When you are specifically looking for something, you won't be able to find it.  When you are not looking for anything, it just jumps right out at you!

My $2 Jacket!
It was a lazy afternoon at a shopping mall.  We were just chilling out after a meal and wandered into some clothing shops.  "$2!", screamed a sign in a quiet corner of the shop.  Curious, I went to take a peek to see what junk they were selling at ridiculously low prices.  There were some owl ornaments with paint chipped off at some places, T-shirts with holes, bikinis with the straps sewn at the wrong place, stained clothes...... you get the idea?  

Well, I kept poking around this area for fun, hoping to find some cute fabric for my sewing projects.  Then I dug up this jacket!  It was a casual office jacket that was fully lined!  I tried it on even though it was a size too small and it fit!!  Getting excited, I checked the tag to see why it was in the sale bin and it said: "hole".  After looking quite hard, I finally found a small little hole at the elbow, nothing that I couldn't fix.  Anyway, who would notice such a teeny tiny hole?

I was beaming all the way home with my $2 catch, telling this incredulous tale to unbelieving family and friends :)
