Picnic at the Park.

I wanted to spend some quality time with the kids. We don't really get to do anything with just us during the week since I have to watch my little cousin, so I took them to the park. They rode their scooters and then we had a little picnic.

It was nice. I think I'm gonna make it a weekly thing. Just the kids and I. :)

Sylish Blogger Award...

So, I was tagged by Miko from Ms M's Bliss for this sylish blogger award. Cool. :)

So I have to post 7 things about myself you may or may not know about me. Here goes....

1) I hate to wash dishes, but I like to vaccum.
2) I bite my nails. (I know, bad habit.)
3) I was born a preemie (2 months early)
4) When riding in the car, if I sit in the backseat I get car sick.
5) I love peanut butter, nutella & fluff(marshmallow) sandwiches.
6) Even though I live in hawaii, i've never surfed before.
7) When I'm home with nowhere to go, I stay in my PJ's all day.

I tried...

Tote bag....fine. That's easy.

Tote bag with a zipper.....errr. O_o"

My sis wants a bag similar in shape to the pic below with a zipper. She has to make things harder for me, doesn't she?? lol!

So, today I tried making one. Of course her bag has to be bigger than this. Trying to sew the zipper part was a bit confusing using the tutorial I found. I mean, it came out ok.....but not exactly how I wanted it.

Does anyone know any tutorials for adding a zipper on a tote bag? A simple and easy to follow tutorial? lol! :P

Until next time.

Shirring makes everything cuter....don't ya think? Hehee.. ;)

Sick Baby & Sewing

I took Mimi to the doctors on tuesday. Found out she has an eye infection and an ear infection. She got antibiotics and drops for her eyes. My poor baby. >_<"

The past couple days have been soo tiring. Staying up all night, doses of tylenol and motrin, cool washcloths.....ugh. I'm exausted.

I think I am going to get a bit more rest tonight. Mimi finally fell asleep and it looks like she's ok and will probably sleep through the night. But we'll see.

I've made a few rompers for Mimi and a friend saw them and asked if I could make a couple for her daughter. So while Mimi was taking a nap I got to sewing. I finally got the hang of sewing with elastic thread, so the rompers I made are shirred at the top and at the waistline.
They came out super cute. :)

Until next time.
