Quilted journal cover

When you are learning in class, your intention is to finish your project in class, right? So normally you would not care if you have done a beautiful job or not. This is the result of that thinking. We were to do some free motion quilting exercises and other stitches to fully utilize our Bernina machines.

While other students had their 100% cotton and designer name fabric selvages on their front cover, mine had it as "100% Japanese cotton"! (I'm cheap! LOL!)

You can see how crooked my free motion is..but I think the batik fabric have its advantages. I just quilt by following the designs, not quite an outline quilting.

It's bigger than my sewing/scribble journal but it'll do.

If I have more time for homework, I would have done it better. Like this old bag of mine.

Children hooded towels

Hooded towels for birthday gifts.
A close-up of Elisha's. I appliqued a flower to cover up the mistake in spelling. It was
wrongly embroidered as "Alisha'. And also to make up for the smaller fonts due to limited frame size.

The towels were specially packaged in its own bag.

Elisha is now 2 yo.
Ken is 1! This picture was taken by his mum during his birthday celebration at home.
