Diaper Cake for Lorraine

Today is J&K's Lorraine's 1st birthday party! :) Kelvin is a practical guy, so my gift choices were in some sense limited to vouchers, toys, clothes... Well, I chose diaper cake!

There are 2 methods to do diaper cakes - stacking or rolling. I preferred the stacking method cause it does lesser damage to the diapers when being tied together, and I think it's prettier. After bundling the diapers, I made 2 fabric ribbons and topped it off with bow. I was so engrossed it was 1.30am before I knew it! (-_-") Plastic wrapping was done this morning.

TK was home so I got him to snap a picture before I deliver the cake! ♥♥

Low Waist Ruffles Dress

This is my 2nd dress from a japanese book titled "Dress Style Book". The original dress has 3 ruffles which I felt was too cluttered. I took a long time to decide using 1 instead cause I had the hardest time hemming all the ruffles! XD

Love the dress! Great for wedding dinners!

Linen Reversible Bag

Finally completed verypurpleperson's reversible bag tutorial this weekend!

I stole a little moment from each weekday evening after a tired day at work.... and progressed from printing pattern, piecing patterns together, cutting fabric to stitching it altogether! It took me one whole week.

My machine gave me problems when I topstitched the handles.. Have you ever encountered loose stitches? In desperation, I read the operation manual and realised the handle was probably too thick and requires a different needle. This was the first time I changed needle (cleaned up the bobbin as well). Problem solved after that! :)

KAM on one side, TK (my hubby) in a (my) heart the other side.. 

 I wanted to take more pictures but Summer, the very affectionate cat, decided it was his. I tried pulling him away but he'll come back each time before I manage to snap a picture. Maybe he likes linen?
