An owl in my garden ?

An owl sittting on the Water Jasmine plant in my garden. Yes, it is, but it is a small fabric owl that I made this morning. LOL!

Oh ! It is really fun to sew this little owl. When I have free time, I am going to sew up some more using my fabric scraps.

If I did, then I will let them line up in a row. LOL!

If you are interested in making this cute bird, go and get the tutorial from Moonstitchies

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy sewing and crafting as much as I do . :D

Patchwork pillow

I never throw away any of my fabric scraps, even they are such small pieces.

Yesterday I used some small pieces of fabric scraps to sew a patchwork pillow case.The measurement of the case is 16 in. x 12 in.

I just cut out some 1.25 in. and 1.5 in. ( width) strips from scraps of different length, simply sewn them together to get this cute and sweet pillow case.

The fabric I used for the back of the pillow case is a nice cotton fabric given by my sister.

This colourful pillow will be given to my little niece. I hope she will like it . :D

Thanks for visiting. Have a nice day !

Simple but colourful

A simple clolourful silk blouse. It is perfect for my coming Chinese lunar New Year.

I can imagine how my sisters will react when they see me wearing such colourful garment.

Most probably, they will exclaim : " Oh ! my goodness! sooooo colourful ! Do you really think it suits your age ? "

I will answer : " Oh! It is New Year, I hope bright colours will cheer up everybody ! " Haha!
