Hope everyone had a blessed and joyful Christmas!  It has been a crazy two months for me fulfilling Christmas orders, participating in craft markets, conducting craft workshops in Singapore and more!  Not forgetting that it is also the December school holidays and I need to find activities to entertain the kids too!  I’ve been wanting to update my blog with […]

Nani IRO Fabric (Kokka Japan)

It’s just about eight days to the launch of our Japanese fabrics in Etsy and we are counting down!  They are so kawaii and pretty and simply irresistible!  As mentioned in my previous blog post, I was so blessed to receive the distributorship for the Nani IRO fabric collections.  They were on my #1 wishlist and I love every single […]

Japanese Fabric Store in Singapore

I’ve always been in love with Japanese fabrics since I started sewing.  Their designs are too cute and I love the quality of Japanese cottons with their unique weaving.  Kokka, Cosmo, Yuwa…these are some of my favourite Japanese fabric manufacturers.  However, they are so expensive to ship from Japan or elsewhere.  Over in Singapore, it is very difficult to find […]

Covered Buttons Accessories

Covered buttons are so awesome and versatile for creating crafts and accessories, something which i discovered by chance while searching for pretty buttons for my tote bags and brainstorming for quick project ideas for my craft markets.  They are also easy to make on a weekend and can be used in a wide variety of crafts such as hair accessories, […]

I’ve sold the Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag in Etsy and have since then received queries on whether more are available in my store.  This Very Hungry Caterpillar Bag is a lunch tote produced from leftover fabrics from Eponine’s quilt.  It’s really the cutest fabric collection ever!  What a wonderful collection for all fans of the Very Hungry Caterpillar classic by […]
