Photos of my little princess

It been a long time since my last post. Before I forget my password to my blog, I was thinking of just posting my girl's photo.

Clarisse is very cheerful, like to make funny faces and always make you happy. She is very helpful and thoughtful.
I will always remember the time when we went to Wild Wild Wet, she tried to help me get out of the float by offering me her hands. So sweet of her.

Trip to Laguna Redang

Went for a short trip during the school holidays to Laguna Redang. Travelled in a group of 13 and off we go. Though it was a very tiring trip but my boys enjoyed it.
Below are some of the pics.

Waiting for the ferry. They are so bored that they made funny faces.

Snorkeling Time!


Last but not least, Clarisse in her mini jean skirt.

Jean Skirt Re-construct

This was done 2 weeks ago. Given this 3/4 jean skirt to me by my cousin but was kept in my cupboard all this while.

I decided to re-construct the jean skirt, and here is how it looks like now.

One 3/4 skirt became 2 mini skirt for me and Clarisse. Clarisse's skirt is from half of the bottom skirt

Here's the 2 skirts. Mine with pleats made from the balance of the fabric that I have and the other half of the bottom. Clarisse's skirt with ruffles.
Bought some fabric button shells from Daiso some time ago but did not know what to do with it. I use it to make some fabric buttons and sew them onto Clarisse's skirt.

My New Toy

It's has been a while since my last update. No bento updates cos Clarence prefer to queue up with his friends during recess to buy some snacks. For the past few months, he has been eating pizza from the canteen everyday. I think he is too shy and does not know how to order from the other stalls.

We went to Tampines Court early this month to look at those sewing machine with no intention of buying cos my mum's place has the old manual type. As I was browsing thru, one of them was on promotion and has the functions which I wanted, able to do zig zag stitch, button hole, sew button and etc. As a result, I bought my new toy (Brother BM 2600 sewing machine)
My first project was to sew a new carrier for my yoga mat since the old is torn. Here's my the pic. I have re-cycled the handle and the string for the top.

Went on to sew my lunch bag, handphone holder, ez-link card holder.

My lunch bag.

Handphone pouch
Ez-link card holder

Last night, I managed to sew a sun hat for Clarisse and another Ez-link card holder. I can only start sewing at around 10pm when she goes to sleep. Things when smoothly and was able to complete by 11:30pm.

Here the pic of the sun hat and Clarisse wearing it.

All are sewn from the same fabric. I dare not buy too much fabrics in case I have nothing else to sew and no where to store. Ha Ha.
