The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

Mother’s day is next week and I’m trying to finish my giveaway gift. I just finish making a basket from the kid’s outgrown clothes. I shall use it to put all my thread, and maybe I might try to make equestrian clothing and hubby will say “this will take years until you can master the skill to make such a clothing”.
My soon 4 year old girl likes anything that is pink in color, such as pink dress, pink shoes, pink umbrella, pink ties, pink water bottle and more. She loves other colors but her preference is always pink. Somehow most girls are wired to this color due to its perception of feminine, soft, cute and lovable.
Her 4th birthday is coming soon and she wants a pink princess dress. I need to start getting all the materials and start sewing. On my other sewing project update, on the picture is the latest dress I made for her recently.
After my first project adventure in sewing, I have tried making other items like handbag, skirt, pants and dress. I admire those mummies who really can sew and have a creative mind. I can’t come out with an instant idea to create a sewing pattern on my own. But thanks to the online information which has lots and lots of great idea and free pattern to download. I have so much fun learning and downloading those patterns, and I have not allocated a place for my sewing room at home. We have 2 empty rooms, and I shall start working and decorating the sewing room which I don’t know when it can be done. When it is up maybe I can start another adventure, making personalized photo mug. Hehe… hubby was saying.. ‘You have not even completed your sewing project’… I saw a shop having promotional mugs recently, and I was so tempted to own those mugs.
Anyway on another sewing project update, I made a tote bag for my girl. A tote bag made from her used outgrown pants. A combination of 2 used pants, then I cut it into 16 rectangle pieces and voila! A tote bag. I use my used jeans short pants for the letter ‘B’. I suddenly realize that I have a lot of used clothes which we don’t use anymore, and I might as well use it for my sewing thing. I bought quite a number of fabrics recently, and I have not started using them. So much for sewing post, I shall end it now.
Okay, so I bought a sewing machine early this year, and I have been playing with it. So here is my first self-made dress for my girl and more to come. I still need to be familiar with the pattern and the style of sewing. A lot to learn but it’s fun. This weekend I plan to go and search for a sewing magazine or book. I learn a lot from an online tutorial.
On top of that, I have been reading a lot on natural cholesterol treatment, low cholesterol food selection in daily diet, regular exercise, a small food portion and reducing the sugar intake. Ha..ha no! I’m just kidding.
