Miyu likes drawing and tricycle

Miyu with her tricycle
Miyu is 1 and a half year old now. She still cannot walk but speaks a lot.
Her most favorite playing is drawing.

Miyu with her tricycle
And tricycle. She cannot pedal it but go forward a little by kicking.

Miyu's elephant plushie
I made some new items for her.
One is this elephant. I got the gray fabric from SWANY. I love the wool very much.

My button accessories
So I made accessories for me with it. They are hair elastics and brooches. I put my favorite buttons on them.

MIyu's shirt
I appliqued and put ruffles on her simple T-shirt. It's Minnie!
The applique is with fleece fabric so it doesn't fray.

When I was taking the picture, Miyu came to me...

Miyu's patchwork skirt
This is an irregular skirt with patchworked fabrics. I made a wool skirt for me with the same pattern. Miyu likes the lace very much and touches it whenever she puts it.

Miyu's ruffle skirt
The last one is this skirt for spring. The pattern is Japanese free pattern. The ruffle is gorgious but hard to sew only by my hands...

I began having sewing lessons for mothers and elderly people. One of the items is these ankle warmers. It's very easy to sew but they make us very hot and comfortable.

I enjoy having lessons. Everyday I think what we make in next lessons. We already made ankle warmers, Sarubobo plushes and zipper pouches. What do we sew next???

I know what you mean about sewing lessons. I took my first lessons last summer, and I really enjoyed being with other people.
It's a pleasure to read you.

The toy elephant is so cute! I love seeing handmade stuffed animals.

And Miyu is growing up so beautifully, too. I can't believe she's as big as she is!

Similar to the ankle warmers, you could sew fleece fingerless gloves (wrist warmers), or teach your students to applique small designs on their shirts. There's also headbands/ear warmers, bags (lingerie bags for travelling are very useful for sorting clean/dirty underclothes), etc.

But you're so imaginative I'm sure you have a million ideas, and I can't wait to hear about them.

Miyu is looking more beautiful evey time we see her. Your sewing is just too cute. I love the leg warmers. You are so kind to share your love of sewing with other mothers and older people.

It's been forever since I've visited your blog. Our babies are just a few weeks apart and mine just now is sort of walking. :) He's very social so I think that's where all his energy has been directed. She is darling!

The problem back then was the need to separate personal and business guidelines on the same agenda, which is very much a persistent challenge.
