d.i.y: floral headband

i made this because i wanted to use up my ribbons but i ended up buying more.

running stitch.

pull the thread.

sew the flowers on a elastic band.


d.i.y: panda plushie

i made this panda plushie for a friend because she is going to boston for 2 months. it’s rather easy to make if you don’t screw up on the stitching which i kinda did.

sketch out the design of your plushie first before cutting anything.

i used felt.

put the pieces together to see how they fit. sew the pieces together and…

voila! a tiny companion is born!

d.i.y: my first canvas bag

remember i was working on the cloth in this post? i’m finally done with it!

i was actually watching prison break while finishing it. it’s a wonder i didn’t make any mistakes. i’m into the last season and things are getting so exciting!

the sewing part was less time consuming. i even added an inner lining for my bag so that the insides won’t get dirty as fast.

the end product! the handles are abit wonky but i’m happy with it. the next one will be definitely much better. now, should i invest on a rotary cutter? i can’t seem to cut straight lines using the scissors. lol.

d.i.y: swallow printed cloth

so miu miu ignited the cat/swallow print trend.

brands like zara have been doing their darnest to attract girls like me to buy their inspired stuff. the dress is 60 bucks if you are wondering.

but i have an even cheaper alternative since my jeffrey campbell shoes gave a huge hit to my bank account recently. i’m planning to make a bag and a skirt using that cloth. i need a faster way to make the prints though. i’m like drawing them one by one using a fabric pen which is running out of ink soon.

sunny side up pizza

in my opinion, italian food like pasta and pizzas are the easiest to make. for this new recipe, it would be better if i had spinach. i thought i did but it turned out to be watercress. so i used tomatoes and zucchinis instead.

before putting it in the oven!

and after. i left it in the oven for a bit too long because i thought the egg wasn’t cooked. but it was still alright.


for 2 servings

2 slices of ham (cut)
2 eggs
1 bundle of baby spinach
2 tomatoes (sliced)
2 portobello mushrooms (sliced)
1 packet of mozzarella light
2 personal pan sized pizza crusts
6 tablespoons of tomato pasta sauce
olive oil

1) spread pasta sauce on pizza crusts.
2) add tomatoes and mushrooms (seasoned with olive oil and salt). remember to leave a space in the middle so that the egg can sit nicely.
3) add spinach and ham.
4) cover with cheese.
5) crack the eggs in the middle of the pizzas.
6) bake for 15-20 minutes.
