Coaster for a Sweet Colleague

Inspired by Amy, I drew up my dresdens template (it's really hard to get dresdens template in Hong Kong!!!) and made this coaster for my sweet colleague. She loves yellow so I used 4 types of yellow fabric. This coaster is 13cm wide and I think it's a bit too big to be a coaster but too small to be a pot holder...T___T and my "super circle" is not that super, it's pointy T______T

Baggage Tag for my Sis

My sis is flying to Bali to attend her boyfriend's friend wedding next month. I used Arlyna 's Matryoshka template to make a baggage tag for her. I stitched her name, telephone no. and address at the back.

This is a book cover for my husband's A5 size notebook. I really like the fabrics, but seems he finds them a bit childish wahahahahahaha.

Place Mat for a Sweet Colleague

I love borrowing books from the public library. Last week, I grabbed a book about patchwork from the library during lunch time. I showed the book to a colleague, who flipped through the pages and told me she loved the design of the place mat in it. I made reference to the design and made this place mat for my sweet colleague. I like the design of the leaf to hold the cutlery and thinking to make one for myself. 

To make work life better, I love buying lovely notebook and I got this one on Saturday. Do you know this brand? It's Pony Brown from Korea. There are many lovely stickers of Pony Brown, which I love looking at them on the internet. However, I have no use for stickers.

Last but not least, I can't help but to show you these two lovely lions. I went shopping with my sister on Sunday, hoping to buy shoes for work. Most shops are having final sale as summer is coming to an end. I chose a pair of Katie Judith shoes and the salesperson asked me to choose two more pairs so as to get an extra 60% off. I tried very hard but could not choose two other pairs, and then the salesperson told me to buy two little charms to get the extra 60% off. I did so and the whole bill was cheaper than buying just one pair of shoes! Do you think the lions are cute? They cost around US$17 without discount. Now I got a pair of shoes and these two lions at around US$48, which I think is a very very very good bargain!

Matryoshka Mug Rug

Thanks for the sharing of Arlyna , i made a Matryoshka mug rug for my sister out of her originally Matryoshka tooth fairy pillow template. i think the face of the Matryoshka is a bit grey so i will use a pink fabric next time. now thinking to make a baggage tag for my sis using this template..

A Little Tote Bag for Colleague

Inspired by a photo on flickr, I made this little tote bag with a tree appliqué for my colleague. This little bag enables her to put her little wallet, cell phone and tissue paper in it when she goes out for lunch. I love the green polka dot woven lace, which definitely makes the bag looks cute and lively.

A Little Coaster for a Little Girl

I made a little coaster for my friend's little girl, who will turn 3 in three months. This coaster is a bit small, only 9cm x 9cm, so I guess it's only suitable for little girl. The Japanese linen fabrics are just too gorgeous, don't you think so?
