~ Stitching ~ Sewing and Stitching is similar to pottery; to create something from scrap into a usable object is full of satisfaction. I like D.I.Y. anything I could do and enjoy the process of mix matching different materials and color. I used to sew a lot of fabric items, including clothing. I started making handmade leather bag in 2017 . Both of them have similarities that requires patience and the tricks to a nice item is the pattern cutting.

Embroidery: Brooch

I had joined a short course of Japanese Style Embroidery in Year 2021. Since then I am obsessed with this stitching handcraft. I enjoy the process of stitching with many colorful cotton threads to create cutie graphical objects and make them into lovely wearable brooch. Some of the following items are learnt from the course and made after referencing from the book written by a famous Japanese Embroiderer "Yumiko Higuchi".

Upcycling: Small Drawstring Fabric Bag

Since I have learnt to make a drawstring fabric bag from the Embroidery class, I have a sudden idea of upcycling all my old drawstring bags available at home. I guess many people have a lot of them as a free gift from retail promotion. By adding some nicely embroidery to cover up the brand name on these bags, it would be upgrading into an adorable new items. The following is the upcycled bags I have made except the first one "Purple Flowers" is a newly made one.
