Zakka Tote

Continuing my sewing frenzy, I started sewing when the 7pm Korean drama started till the 10pm Korean drama ended. This is the end product of a 4 hour effort.

I kind of like the Zakka look. Simple, clean cut and manly.

Camo Tote

Yesterday went to buy more fabrics and bought a piece of hard canvas. I was so excited to see the possibility the canvas could be sewn into. I spent 4 hours to make this tote bag. It turned out quite well as I took measurement of Hermes and YSL tote bags.

Baking for Sunny

The first time I tried was a complete failure as I didn't follow closely to the recipe.

This time round, the cookies look good in the oven. I hope they taste as good as they look. Well, after all, they are filled with good stuff, like Manuka honey, flax seed and peanut butter.

A small floral carrier

This is a small carrier. I finally got the Denison correct and that's because I refer to one of the many sewing books I've bought.

The size is just right, not too big, not too small.

Going to give this to an aunt who said she loves this fabric very much.

A disciplined lifestyle

I've been doing my one-minute exercise routine for more than a year. I first started with one-min planking, now I've extended i...
