Bow is not Hello Kitty‘s privilege, it can be more than a simply bow tie, gift wrap or bow hairclip. Make your own bow pillow, bow scraf, bow shirt, bow bracelet, bow necklace, bow ring, bow clutch and more. It’s so nice to see bows all around everyday!

Buy Knit Fabric Online

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).

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.

It’s the new year – time to take down the holiday decorations and update the decor for spring! I’m planning for a few small home revamp projects to give a refreshing look.

 

First of all, I will revamp the old rubber mats with my favorite fabric. By following this step-by-step tutorial, you can make your own custom rug out of any fabric you love, any size you want, simply with spray adhesive and polyurethane. This is awesome and money-saving!
