Bunny Series Fabric Bag

Last month, my daughter's teacher handed me an Elementary school's guide book. The content is all about what kind stationery that we need to prepare before entering the school and how to labeling them. What is interested me the most is a mandatory for all children to bring an extra little bags with recommended size. Which it means I can make something for her ;).

I  went straight to a craft store buying some fabric and having a quick look on bag books tutorial. I decided to use linen and cotton fabric, polyester crochet yarn for border and pom pom, and some embroidery floss. 

For tote bag tutorial I will link you to her website. Her tutorial is very easy to follow and very inspiring. Now, I have many sewing project waiting in the line. 

The big is for books that size are bigger than A4 size. Smaller size drawstring bags are for gym clothes and indoor shoes. And the smallest pouch is for mask and handkerchief.

Bunnies are in progress 

DIY pom pom with fork. 
Later these will set as a bunny tail and decoration on drawstring bag.

After school, I forced her to be my model ;p.

Embroidery Baby Boy Figure

Last month my friend asked me to make embroidery figure for her son birthday gift. 
I asked her to send me her son's pictures and kind of details that she want me to put it on. 
And then she dropped me a few list things to be done such as her son front hair whorl, two flags that reflect parent's origin (mom is Japanese and dad is Austrian), and owls hanging somewhere. 
I had a lot of fun with her idea, and I would love to share it with you.
