I have owned my current sewing machine for almost a year but except the straight stitch, I’ve yet to try the other fun stitches pre-programmed in it (unbelieveable, I know). So this week, I tried them out, not on a sheet of fabric but on a piece of paper and decided to make a book cover for my planner. I used my left-over wrapping paper for this but you can use any paper you want.Continue reading →
By now maybe some of you have realized that I like playing around with photos and making bookmarks. So here comes another photo-related craft today. It’s an easy and quick photo holder using only minimal materials! You can substitute that cork sheet with a plastic cap, a stack of paper (old magazine or newspaper) or anything as photos are lightweight. I just use the cork sheet because I have some leftover on hand. Scroll down to see the how to.Continue reading →
I’ve been reminding myself to make a sleep eye mask for months and after a loooong overdue, I finally made one this week! As we always wash our face after we wake up, I thought about making a sleep mask that is detachable from our headband so we can just slide the headband up when we are washing our face.

Hello guys, hope you are well! I’m back with a new tutorial! Sorry for the inconsistency in the posting schedule recently; a little bit busy with uni’s work but most of all, idea block! (no pun intended). Browsed Pinterest (and got overwhelmed!) but nothing came up until yesterday. Where do you guys usually go when looking for inspirations? I was picking up some washi tape yesterday and tried making a (faux) mini rubik (that ended up as a cute necklace) :D So I’m sharing the tutorial today! Read on to see the easy peasy how-to!Continue reading →
Okay, first I want to warn you that this post will be shamelessly filled with my old ID photos, please bear with me (^^); I took a lot of ID photos for visa, exams, passport and other related documents and you know how most of them requires the “at least 3 months old” photos. I did cheat sometimes but sometimes your new hair length just won’t let you cheat.
I usually use the self-service photo box and it always comes with 8 pieces of photo and most of the time, I just use 1 or 2 of them and the others? Stuffed inside my drawer collecting dust. I keep one photo from every print (just to see how I age overtime LOL), so I’m looking for ways to use these old ID photos and came up with today photo pins and magnets! They are great for memo board and chore charts and very easy to make too! Continue reading →
Hi there everyone! So this is my first post in year 2015 and I’m starting it with a sewing craft. I’m still exercising my “sewing with sewing machine” skill and bought a bias tape to challenge myself in sewing a straight line on a narrow surface. Not wanting to waste the bias tape, I turned it into a strap for my ID card. Roll down to see the easy how-to! Continue reading →
