Sew & Tell - Andrea's Quilt

f0194450_834314.jpgAndrea is finishing her quilt for her friend's baby, and brought this top to the shop to choose a backing fabric. It was a perfect timing because this pattern was something I had on my mind for my solid quilt. It is a kind of the Gee's Bend and Denyse Schmidt style. Everyone knows that things are uncertain nowadays, but we all need something to feel good about even in a hard time. Making a quilt is definitely one of the things that makes you feel good. I feel good by just looking at Andrea's quilt.
Thank you, Andrea!

Corners of Fumiko's House

f0194450_84248100.jpgA fabric obsessed and Peapod loyal, Fumiko invited me last Saturday for a potluck. Her place was filled with Peapod's fabrics. It was amazing to see those fabrics she brought home from Peapod actually being used all over the house. They were literally all over the place. From the entrance to bathroom, everywhere you look, there is Peapod's fabric! It is a fun welcoming cozy place.
Thank you, Fumiko!!!
Sorry, the photos are not so great due to a lack of natural light.

It's amazing she makes those things by hand stitching as she doesn't own a sewing machine yet...

Recycled Cans

f0194450_6245347.jpgOne of the kitchen drawers gets jammed everytime I open it. It's because of the big fat spatula that barely fits in. I got so sick of it, and it was time to do something. The solution is the cans. I kept those huge cans for some crafty projects. They came with a whole tomatoes and clams from Costco. I just cut the oil cloth and glued it on. They are handy to organize little things around the house, especially a kid's room. In my place, they also hold scratch papers and pens, sewing tools, outgoing mail, bills, and etc... Want to try? It's super easy and no sewing involved!

Sew & Tell - Yufu's Mother's Tote & Accessories

f0194450_5472432.jpgAs her love for sewing grows, Yufu is back with her new projects. She made herself a mother's tote with the same organic canvas as her little girl's backpack. She didn't want it to be too matchy matchy, so she used the apple print as the a drawstring lining opening.

Of course, Saho didn't leave the house without her backpack. Here she is also wearing her mom's handmade three-tiered skirt.
f0194450_5503383.jpgYufu also made the little tote for diapers and wipes. And these adorable pocket kleenex pouches!
