Do you sometimes get frustrated when the earbud gets tangled in the bag? This earbud pouch is definitely simple to make with fabric scraps, it is great as an earbud holder, but also think about cash, extra keys, lip balm or any other small things to keep track of! I can see these as the perfect gift for teenage cousins or nieces or girlfriends or even teacher gifts.

Reversible Christmas Stocking Tutorial & Unusual Stocking Fillers

It’s never too early to plan for Christmas because the kids love it. They almost screamed when they knew I was making them a special huge Christmas stocking (by doubling the measurements of tutorial on mirincondemariposas.blogspot.com).

Then filling a stocking with fun gifts for everyone can be a headache. I don’t like the idea of plastic toys that break straight away and usually overpriced. A bit of this and that I come into mind from my favorite online shop Modes4U:


patterned pencils and unusually shaped rubbers


writing note books and letter sets


cute stickers


craft kits


modeling chocolate and candy DIY kits


funny mugs


lunch bags and towels


bubble bath bombs


travel backpacks


novelty shaped ice cube trays

It will be the first Halloween for Robert – Jessifer and Thomas’s little boy.


Seen many babies in the pumpkin to go trick-or-treating, we prefer to dress Robert comfy in a simple but festive onesie.


It is so fun and easy to make these onesies - thanks to One Crafty Place’s tutorial.


Of course we would also prepare a trick-or treat bag with the spooky cute style Halloween fabric (tutorial from  fabricmill.blogspot.com)

For some moms like me, back-to-school means a time to celebrate as the house is quiet and kid-free for at least six hours a day, so I could have some more spare time for continuing my writing habits.


I was inspired with this French journal cover tutorial and decided to decorate the ugly black journal cover with my own stash of colorful echino laminate fabric.


It looks much better now and puts me in a writing mood.

Cute Portable Baby Changer

Timeless Treasures kites fabric

Timeless Treasures kites fabric

As inexperienced first-time mum Jennifer asking my advice to buy a separate piece of furniture called a “changing table” to accommodate the baby during diaper changes for going out, I would suggest to use a portable baby changer which is easy to carry and convert any dresser into a changing table by placing a changing pad on its level surface, ensuring baby is always clean dry and happy.. and mum and dad are always prepared!


There are many “expensive” portable baby changers available in the market, but most of them are dull and boring. Why don’t make one by yourself with cute children’s fabric and even waterproof with laminate fabric? Download here for free sewing patterns and tutorials for portable baby changer.
