Hi All,

Sadly the response for this hunble giveaway is not very good.

However, I still like to thank four lovely readers out there who took the time to come browse and join in this giveaway. 

Thank you very much as your comments and responses make it worth it.

Due to poor response, my princesses do not need to draw out the names as ALL are WINNERS.

So my email you mailing address to me at and I will start preparing the package to  be sent out.





Thank you for all the visitors who have came here and still do come here to see what I have been up to.

Although, I am still very “young” in this crafting world, I am happy that there are many who have given me countless encouragements.

This is what I have completed most recently … Crochet Flower Hairpins.

So please leave a comment here and on Monday, 20th October, my princesses will draw 5 of you… who knows there may be more … depending on how many the princesses decide to giveaway.

So, please join my second giveaway.

It seems that the fashion for kiddos nowadays are tights with a skirt attached.  I do not know what they name this particular attire but I find it extremely cute.

With my success in sewing pants for my princesses, I thought I may just push it a little further by adding a skirt on top of it.

I tried it out yestaerday morning when I stayed at home sick.  (Yes, sick but refuse to lie down and rest.)

The outcome is this…


And this is Aver with her “cheese” pose.

(Please ignore that her rompers and the bottom piece do not match… I simply asked her to put it on for the sole purpose of taking photos of her in it.)

Hope you will like it as much as her father do.  He says it is cute.

Had been looking blog hopping and have been amazed by the nice skirts and pants that other mothers had sewn for their cuties.  Although I did sew a few dresses at the beginning of the year, I don’t find them fantastic.  Hence, I put off sewing clothings and simply stick to other stuffs.

However, Ash is growing and is out growing her wardrobe and since we are on a tight budget, I thought it is time to start sewing some wearable for her.

I started with a pair of pants for her but it turned out a little too big and it looks like her dad’s boxers.

Then I went on to sew two pairs of pants for Aver and it turned out better.  So this particular fabric will be used for more tight pants.  I will try another one out for Ash.

And last night, I decided to sew a pair of 3/4 pants for Ash and that did not come out at all.  First, despite the fabric being very cute, after cutting it out, I realised the pair of pants may end up looking like jammies.  That is not what I intend it to be.  Second, I failed to put the pair of pants together.  Thinking that I had sewn three pairs the night before, I should have no problem with this pair.  WRONG! WRONG! WORNG! I kept sewing the wrong seams together and I took almost an hour sorting it out.  At my last failed attempt, I gave up on it. 

So it was not fated to be a 3/4 pants, I cut up the fabric and sewn a skirt for Aver instead.  That turned out well. 

So here are what I had sewn…

Here they are giving their wonderful poses.

Tonight, I will tackle the pants for Ash again!
