Happy Mother's Day

cute things

Happy Mother's Dayheart Living apart from both my mom and American mom, the only thing I could do was to send them gifts to show my appreciation for all the supports and sweetness they have given to me, but I hope they are having a great Mother's Day.

The pics above are something I found in a Japanese online shop. I don't remember where I found these, but I thought they are exceptionally adorable;)


Plastic Bag Dispenser

I've finished this project: my 9th plastic bag dispenser! This is a plastic bag holder for the kitchen. This was made for a custom order. My customer asked me to make this using green and blue fabrics, and this is how it turned out. When I thought about the colors, this vintage fabric (house print) was the first design that came to my head, so starting with that I decided other fabrics to go with that could make the vintage fabric stand out.

These are other plastic bag dispensers I've made in the past for custom-orders. Making these are fun for I love trying patchwork in many different ways.


I am so delighted that some crafters used my tutorials!
Look at these beautiful works!

Thanks for making and sharing with me;)

Thanks for reading!


  1. Hi Sweetie,
    I love the fabric basket you made for me! It is just the right size to keep by my sewing machine to catch all the little loose things I am using on current projects, bobbins, seam ripper, etc. Now I don't have to crawl on the floor chasing things that roll off as soon as I set them down. Thank you.
    I visited your Itsy shop, but I don't know how to order from it. I would really like to get a springtime bag made, with green in it. My old purse is a little too small and doesn't have a shoulder strap. Let me know about that, ok?
    Have a good week, Love, Kim

  3. Kim-

    Thanks for your sweet comment again;)
    I'm so glad to hear you enjoy the basket. Using it to organize little things for sewing projects sounds really good, so I should make one for myself for that. Sure I would love to work on a green bag for you;) Thanks Kim!
