Sewing Tutorial: Fabric Cable Tidy

Fabric Cable Tidy top

I’m not a tidy freak, but one thing I cannot stand is tangled cables running around the house. I really wanted to tackle this problem with cheapest option possible, and came up with this simple idea of fabric cable tidy. It takes less than 10 minutes to make one, and if you use fabric scraps it won’t cost you a thing! Read More

Quilting the Yoyos 1

I’ve started to sew together the yoyos I made in this post. Yes, it’s been almost three weeks since I started this project (here on this post), and I still have 55 mini-size yoyos to sew together (big sigh). Read More

Today I Made: Hair Scrunchies with Bow

Hair Bow Scrunchies top

I received my first ever order (so excited!) for hair scrunchies from my friend, who saw my hair scrunchie with bow tutorial (on this post). She ordered two scrunchies for herself, and one for her soon-to-be four years old niece. She left it to me to decide what kind of scrunchies I’d make, so I picked colour and materials I think (I hope) she’d like. Read More

Today I made…

yoyo 4

As I told you in yesterday’s post, I got an inspiration for a new sewing project from a Cath Kidston sewing box my friend gave me. I think the project will take me about a week to complete (if only my hands didn’t give way…), so I’ll be posting updates throughout next week. Read More

As I promised you yesterday, today’s tutorial is on ‘pimped up’ version of hair scrunchie. I’ve been slightly obsessed with bows recently (in case you haven’t noticed), and I couldn’t resist putting a bow on a scrunchie! Read More

I have quite a lot of odd bits of scrap fabrics to use, so today I’m having a tutorial on hair scrunchies. I know, it’s one of the simplest sewing projects ever! Today’s tutorial will show you how to make the ‘basic of the basic’ scrunchies, and I’ll be having a tutorial on ‘pimped’ version tomorrow. Have nice scrunchies time, everyone! Read More

Wedding Project:
Organza Flower Headband Tutorial

Organza Flower Headband top

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, my best friend’s wedding is coming up in less than three weeks. So today, I made a headband with an organza flower feature for the special day; it looks cute yet elegant (ie, perfect for a wedding), don’t you think? It was such a fun to make the organza flower that I’m already thinking what I could use these for other projects! You can wear it as a hairpin, a bracelet, a belt… OK, I’m getting a bit too excited here, but hope you’ll get as excited as I am making the headband, too! Read More

Good-Bye to Stinky Shoes Tutorial: Part 1

Good-Bye to Stinky Shoes Tutorial: Part 1, bag

Like any other Japanese, wearing shoes inside a house is a big no-no. This applies to wherever I live, and my sweet friends, without even being asked, automatically take their shoes off at the door (thank you lovelies!). There is one big downside to ‘no-shoes’ policy though – the smell! After wearing boots or during summertime, anyone must have worried ‘what if my feet smell?’ when taking shoes off (and at someone-else’s house, the worry becomes an actual dread). So I came up with this ‘deodorant sachet’ idea, which I tried and tested for the past 3 months and works wonders! Toady, as the first part of the tutorial, I’ll show you how to make the sachets.
