I’ve been gone quite a while! I really want to and will try my best to update my projects here more often. It’s just getting harder and harder with a baby, especially now that he wants to be interactive all the time. I moved back to North Carolina after having my baby. We drove across country when he was only 2 weeks old! …and… we are planning to “permanently” move back to California by the end of the year so I am looking forward to buy fabrics in bulk again next year. :D

Below are some of the projects I made. The cross stitch was a bit painful, pushing the dull needle through the interface backing for the onesies. Love every piece.

I really like the crop top with a high waist pants, shorts, or skirt. I might recreate the full skirt to pair it with the top for a photoshoot. Or, maybe I should design a different crop top. We’ll see… I have to finish my orders first though. I AM moving soon. :D

Short shorts!

I had a hard time figuring out what to do with the high neckline top I was working on. I sat around for a long time just killing time online then I remembered I needed shorts for the summer. I am super glad the shorts turned out great and it fits like a glove. I also tried to make a skirt for my niece, but realized the width of the fabric was shorter than expected. I also reattempted the upcycle tanktop dress in pink and the Hmong scarf. I really like the dress and will probably make myself one.hmong print purple shorts

Just some updates and photos…

I was way overdue to make my sister in law a tea length skirt. Last week I finally made her one! This skirt is also posted on my etsy shop for ordering.

Hmong green silver floral skirt

I received my cotton fabric I purchased from spoonflower.com over the weekend. I haven’t really thought much about what to make. I made a high neck scoop top because I like it high. I have no clue what kind of bottom to add onto the top.

Materials: Stretch Fabric, Iron-on Interfacing

Cut the bottom portion of the tail with iron on interfacing and fabric. Make sure to cut 2 of each. Iron each of the interfacing on each of the fabric. In this case, I had to baste it on because for some reason this iron on wasn’t sticking onto the fabric.

With the right side of fabric together, sew the fins together. Make sure not to sew the top. You need to leave it open so that you can turn it inside out.


Cut a triangle shape from the middle of the fins.


Cut off the pointy edges and make snips all around the sewn seams about one inch apart.

Turn it inside out and you got the fins! Now into the top portion of the tail

Cut a rectangle of the fabric. Make sure the stretchiness of the fabric is going horizontal.


Cut of the sides of the bottom portion of the rectangle. My cuts are super horrible! LOL it’s okay though because these needs to be done ASAP. The birthday party already started and I’m just starting on the present.

Sew the sides of the tail. Do not sew the top or bottom; just the sides.


With right side of fabrics together, sew the bottom portion of tail and opening of fins together. The bottom portion of tail is smaller than the opening of the fins, so you’ll have to stretch it as you sew. Use the zig-zag stitch.


There you go!

Hmong Fabrics

I wasn’t going to buy these for myself, but since my sister in law wanted me to get her a few yards, I decided to buy it for myself as well.


I finished the bolero yesterday night and decided to do a matching sweetheart top. What to do next?
