Echino Insulated Bag

Spring weather’s just right — not too hot, not too cold, not too buggy — it’s picnic season to load up the car with friends, family and plenty of good food under the sunshine.

It’s not fun serving cold food that should be warm or warm food that should be cold. To avoid this picnic-mood-killer, you will want to have an insulated picnic bag, especially made with colorful, beautifully printed echino laminate fabric.

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

I love knits! And I am trying to buy organic & more sustainable where possible, which is one of the reasons I love the organic cotton knit especially for babies and kids.


Frankly it is really difficult to find good quality knits online if you aren’t buying it in person, I can’t tell you how many times I purchased knits online and the fabric screwed up badly. I am nervous about what I might be getting that I’d rather choose some good-quality brands like Monaluna and Birch Fabrics (I got them from Modes4u Fabric Shop).

DIY Scarf Camera Strap

The original nylon camera strap is so rough and scratchy to my skin, that I could hardly bear the strap longer than 10 minutes before my skin feel raw everywhere it is rubbing.

 

I’ve seen scarf camera straps popping up all over Pinterest and it’s cheap for around $5 to make a chic and soft silk camera strap! It also works perfectly with wool for winter or lace trim in summer.

When I was a child, I read Mr. Men and Little Miss books. The stories are odd and quaint and preachy, but the characters are totally loveable. Now my boy loves them!


Imagine how excited I was to find Mr. Men and Little Miss fabric at modes4u.com!

Hot Water Bottle Cover

Winter 2014 is on track to be the coldest for more than a century with heavy and persistent snow, freezing gales and sub-zero temperatures.


My latest obsession with a hot water bottle in bed for keeping warm in those cold nights. And there’s something very homely about a hot water bottle.


This could be so much more fun to hug a cosy hot water bottle with soft minky fleece fabric or flannel fabric than touching the plastic.

Year of the Sheep 2015

It becomes my personal interest to read about Chinese zodiac in the new year.


The Sheep represents a symbol of peace, harmonious co-existence and tranquility. It predicts both political and economic situations in the world are starting to stabilize. Many people’s quality of life is getting higher and the crisis that has been tormenting many counties for the past several years is finally promising to be over. May the war come to an end and peace prevail on earth soon.
