Enjoy sewing!

Miyu
Happy New Year!
We are doing fine. Miyu is 1 year and 5 months now and likes playing outside if it's very cold. She still cannot stand up by herself but she likes stairs very much.

She tries them everyday and sometimes falls down... I love her back style (* v *)!!!!

Here are some fur items I made for her.
One is this bag. It has a cat face pocket because she likes cats very much.

I made it with Miyu's friend's mother. She didn't sew at all before we met but now she likes sewing for her little. I'm happy to teach sewing to other mothers.

I made some hair clips too. They're so easy to make. I just put my favorite buttons, ribbons and Sashiko stitches.

I made my leg warmers too. They makes me very hot and comfortable.

Today I got some fleece fabric and I'll teach other mothers the way of sewing them.
I begin small sewing classes for mothers (at no charge (* v *)!!) twice a month.
I hope more people enjoy sewing for themselves and their family.
In this cold season, hand craft is best. Isn't it?

sweet lil girl..
You are so kind hearted, making a free sewing class to all mothers. Sometimes satisfaction beyond cash n dollar reward right.

Miyu is so cute! It's a good thing I don't live in Japan or I might just move in with you guys so I can stare at her all day! (And I love the kitty purse you made for her. I would totally carry that myself.)

As always, it's good to hear from you Mai, and to see pictures of your beautiful sewing and adorable little girl. It's so kind of you to teach others how to sew. I wish I could come for some lessons too, but America is a little too far away. =^^=

Hi Mai, good to see you "back" online. Miyu has grown up so much, she is so adorable! Wish I live near you so I could also attend your sewing class...
ps: thanks for your "sewing" tips and ideas, I go to your blog whenever I need sewing tips! ;=0]]

Where is the play space in the first photo? I would like to go there with my daughter.
Your hand made goods looks so nice.
I hope my daughter Kurumi and Mayu-chan play together again!

thank you so much for so openly sharing/documenting your work...i just finished making my first oragami drawstring bag...it was so fun! I made it with old t-shirt fabric--no worries about raw edges! It came out very nice even though i didn't measure perfectly! I will check back often.
