Sofa cushion covers



I have 5 pieces of interior decor fabric, all samples,each one is big enough for one cushion cover, so I combined them to make a set of 4 for my sofa cushions.

This morning, I got up very early, and this beautiful sky is the reward. :)

Felt needle Book




One can never have enough things to hold needles/pin, pin cushions,pin holders, small bottles,and etc, one of my friends even used a mechanical pencil to hold her needles when traveling.

Yesterday, I saw a cross stitch Stitcher's book kit on internet, it was adorable. So I came up with this idea, and made a felt needle book, it looks nothing like the cross stitched one. But I love it all the same, maybe, it only because I made it. :)

A Puff Cushion


Comfy!
I stuffed too much, it almost killed me when I hand-stitched them together. Now I know how much I appreciate my sewing machine. However,the cushion is so comfy, setting on it, I feel it worths all the trouble after all. :)
I used 5in squares for the top, and 4in squares for the back.

Dress it up- fabric covered box/bottle



What do you do with a empty jam bottle, throw it in a recycle bin? Give it a hat, it'll look lovely and can hold many things for you.


The round treasure box was made of a empty 2in tape roll.
Putting them together, I got a new treasure box.

Rainbow color pencil case



We get a rainy summer, almost a shower every day. Last week, when I was thinking about a new color pencil case, the rain ceased, and the sun came out, a rainbow on the sky! I love rainbow always, who doesn't? So here comes my new pencil case. The embroidery was inspired by a Japaneses fabric.

last minute gift--- two bags


These two bags were made to take socks and under wares for my husband. He's going to Japan for a business trip. I'm hoping he'll buy some nice Japanese fabric for me. He says that I'm more interested in collecting fabrics than actually using them. That is so not true, I just don't have enough time to use them. Here comes the proof.

I love make these quick-made bags, they can hold lots of things and it only took me an hour and half to complete both of them, including the time digging through my stash.
