Fabric Water Tumbler Carrier in Style ~ 清新亮丽水壶袋

最近一位妈妈向我订制了水壶袋。之前都是为小孩们缝制水壶袋,为大朋友制作还是头一次。在设计和颜色运用方面有必要做些调整。虽然,是有这么想但脑袋却不一定配合。当我们习惯了用某个方式处理事情,因为有了这些经历,脑袋就会用同样的方式操作。

之前所制作的水壶袋的肩带都是缝在袋子的外面,因为袋口是以束口袋的方式完成。而这一次呢,这位妈妈要求说水壶袋不要用束口的袋口。我明白了要求,但脑袋却没有收到相关的讯息!水壶袋做好后,我把相片传给这位妈妈。她回复说肩带看来怪怪的,是否可以修改。她建议把肩带的位置调高。我看了看,觉得没有什么问题啊。但还是同意帮她修改。在拆线的过程中,我突然想到了另一个更好的方式来缝制肩带。还好,修改后这位妈妈还满意。别人的意见真的是很可贵,他们可以为我们指出盲点。所以我非常感谢可以给我意见的朋友和顾客。让我能够不断进步,把作品做得更好。

Spiderman Pencil Pouch ~ 蜘蛛侠笔袋

This is actually long overdue. My boy asked me to make a big pencil case for him. He said the existing one he has is a bit small, not able to put in scissors and glue.

I actually cut out the fabric long ago but then the project was put on hold as there were some other projects to attend to and I thought this can wait...One day, my boy came to me and said why I prioritized other projects over his. I was speechless. It was indeed a fair remark. Yes, there are a lot times we put other people's needs above our loved ones' needs. I will keep that in mind son, thank you for reminding me what matters most. :-)

Sewing for School Carnival ~ 学校义卖会

My children's school was having a carnival last week. The event was organised to help raise fund for the school to build a school hall. Both my children were very excited about the school carnival.  

Students of higher grades were invited to participate in setting up stalls at the carnival. My daughter and her friends decided to set up a craft stall selling squishy, elastic hair band decorated with hand knitting ribbon and oobleck fun. Seeing them working so hard to prepare for the carnival, I offered to help to sew some items to put at their stall. 

As it was decided quite last minute and I was contemplating on the items to sew, I didn't managed to make too many, only managed to sew 10 pieces of lunch box carrier bags at last. :D  But the girls are happy with it.

Pencil Case ~北欧风笔袋

上回有提到要如何保有一颗热忱的心及源源不断的能量。知名作家及广告人李欣频老师建议以[微型人生]的方式来规划生活。什么是[微型人生]?就是以一天,一周或一年的人生单位来切割。如果你是要[拚命赚钱,早早退休],那就要把这观念运用在每一天,每一周或每一年的人生单位里。这样做的话,你至少每一天,每一周或每一年(以你定的单位来切割)都会有一定的时间拼命工作,享受你要的退休生活。那你就不会错失一些事情而后悔莫及。也会有源源不断的能量及热忱继续为生活前进。人总以为人生还很长,每一天都敷衍的过,没有动力。总以为还有很多明天,什么事都等待明天。

言归正题。最近,一位朋友托我帮她缝制笔袋。一个给她女儿,另一个要送给女儿的朋友。这位朋友很珍惜身边的亲人朋友。常常很用心地把美好的东西与朋友分享。做她的朋友真幸福。:)

Fabric Food Warmer Cover ~ 布制保温餐盖

有一天,在女儿学芭蕾舞的学院认识的一位妈妈传了几张照片给我,问我是否可以制作照片中的东西。是布制的保温餐盖。老实说,我还是第一次看到这样的保温餐盖。很精致,美观又实用!我跟她说我可以试试做做看。我对新事物很感兴趣,尤其这么实用的东西,当然要好好研究研究一番。呵呵。

试验的第一件成果,不满意。原以为有保温布就够厚了所以没有加布衬。但是做出来的保温盖因为太薄所以不美观。第二次实验时,我以为我第一次做的尺寸看错了,所以把尺寸改了。结果做出来太小了!终于在第三次的尝试,制作出满意的成品。:)果然是凡事都是要从失败中学习,不断修补,做到更好。最重要是要保有一颗热忱的心,才会有源源不断的能量继续下去。那要如何保有热忱的心呢。下一回再与大家分享我从书上学到的吧。

另外,因为这位妈妈的爱心~希望家人可以享有热腾腾的料理,让我有机会学习新的事物,真的非常感谢她。

Fabric Book Cover ~ 布制书衣

之前制作的布书衣在书店寄卖,反应还不错。在这个数码的时代,还可以看到那么多喜欢阅读纸本书的人,很是感动。我是纸本书的拥护者。总觉得电子书怪怪的,可能是少了纸本书的温度和扑鼻的书香吧。

最近,又动手缝制了几个布书衣补货。希望,它可以与有缘的爱书者相遇并一起度过美好的阅读时光。
