‘Cause This is Thriller!

‘Cause This is Thriller!

Here’s Sidra’s Thriller jacket! Although it is not supposed to be a costume, I think it is appropriate to post it on Halloween. As I’ve posted before, I made this jacket on Sidra’s request for his fall jacket. He wanted either a Thriller or Beat It jacket. The number of zippers on Beat It jacketContinue Reading →

Recently I just came to a conclusion that my bra size is not quite right (!!!). You might ask how I didn’t realize that sooner? I think that a part of it was caused by years of never finding the right size so I never knew how the right bra size are supposed to feel. AnotherContinue Reading →

After making a hoodie for my husband, I continued making another one for Sidra. The fabric is not kid-friendly very white cotton jersey and I found a zipper with red details to go with it. I had this image of Sidra wearing a sparkling white hoodie that I couldn’t resist making the hoodie, although nextContinue Reading →

Here’s the hoodie that I made for my husband’s birthday! I just realized that this is the first thing that I made for him this year, and it’s already October! I guess I’ve been spending too much time making things for myself. He never complained though. I’m sorry honey! The pattern is McCall’s 6614, boughtContinue Reading →

It was a nice and quiet day just the way we love it. We biked in the morning to the lake in the neighborhood, bought oden (Japanese winterContinue Reading →

Kids jacket in progress

Kids jacket in progress

Can you recognize the jacket? And no, it’s not a Halloween costume for Sidra. Recently I told Sidra that since the weather was going cooler, I would make him a jacket, then I asked if he had anything particular in mind. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked him first and just carry on making the jacketContinue Reading →

Jeans (Butterick 5682) and Peplum top (Vogue 8815)

My first pair of jeans! Actually not the first pair that I made, as I’ve made jeans several times for my husband and Sidra, but this would be the first time for myself. I finished them more than a week ago and have been wearing them so much ever since. That definitely is a sign ofContinue Reading →
