Mattress cover for kid - For my daughter

Image
This is one project that I yearned to do ever since I started buying fabrics online. We bought this nap-time mattress long ago but have been using the single-sized bedsheet over it. There are excess cloth sticking out on the sides and kinda dangerous as it might make us trip and fall.

After deciding which design to use, I started this project in the morning while my baby is not at home. I measured the size and gave allowance for the elastic band to fit through.

This design is from Alexander Henry Collection - Apples + Pears. I fell in love with this as it is very appealing and can teach my daughter what are the items. The rotary cutter and mat is a MUST to have. It is so easy to use to cut the fabric. I don't have to worry that I will cut out of the line. The ruler is used as a guide for the cutter to slice through like a breeze.

The steps are:
Measure your mattress size and give allowance for the elastic band to go through.Fold your fabric in half and then half again. So that it…

*guilty*

(After receiving on Xmas Eve - I became *not guilty*)
You will agree with me that the design of the fabrics are too beautiful and not to be missed. I bought this online again and it came with a bundle set of 8 yards. You can select the bundle separately and not the predefined set. Cool isn't it? The shipment is just USD$13.50.

If you are interested, you can find out more at Fabric Shoppe. Jody is prompt in responding to my emails. The best part is that the delivery takes 1-1.5 weeks!

So the question you have in your mind, I think will be - So, Joey, when will you start sewing? Haa..

Presto!
Take a look at my new member of my craftwork family...

I had to give away some table space to place this member. Bought this last week at Courts@ Causeway Point. Haiz, meaning I have to find another table to do my Christmas cards. Tsk tsk. For those who knows me well, my tables are filled with other stuff and again, I have to do spring cleaning. *Thinking aloud* Why didn't I buy a bigger table???

I did my first project and cannot wait to show everyone.

Till then. Buying fabrics time. ^-^

Sneak Preview - Ink Pad

Image
After an event on a saturday morning, I went to Orchard Road and saw these at a store in Wheelock Place, Singapore - Laine's Papeterie. The store sells scrapbooking stuff and lots to choose from.

The brand is called Tsukineko, VersaCraft series.There were only 3 sets available and I bought all impulsively. I find that these will be useful if I want to use a small scale stamp or a stamp of multiple colours. The size is slightly bigger than a finger and easy to hold.

The ink is quite thick and I am still figuring out how to handle. Btw, these can be used on fabric, paper, wood, leather, unglazed ceramic, paper mache and shrink plastic.

Stay tuned! I'm excited to try soon! *-*
