Crochet Train

Celebrated my dear friend Celine's daughter Eloise's 3rd birthday by making her favorite toy she's been interested playing with. I thought about making plush version of wooden train that she can maybe cuddle with.

It was great exercise to experiment how to make hollowed structure for the window part. And to retain its shape, I inserted stiffen felt in the base, top and main body. I hope that worked.

I was pretty focused on constructing this train that I forgotten to take any progress shots. I'm excited to do another project using these techniques!

Pillow Case

While ago, I had this two large cushions I got from a couple who were moving out.

Bought striped fabric from IKEA, they're nice and durable and have so many cute designs to choose from.  Check out more selections!

Making pillow case is one of good practice for sewing. Cut the fabric following the dimension of the cushion. For zipper, I reused the zipper from the old cushion case.

With the old pillow case I cut them into four squares and sew the edges and stitched inside the square. Reuse your unused fabric into cleaning cloth so you never have to buy them!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! How is your long weekend been?
It was snowing today, it feels like Fall again.

Had productive weekend. Did some small house decorating that I would love to share, did some drawing to try sticking to my new year resolution.
 
Another thing I've been doing was hunting down left over goods from Target before they close. There are lot of things I bought from them within the past year and I'm upset that they're closing.

Target lovers, there are few days left before they really close the door hope you find something good!
happy easter!
