Tote Bag

I have sewn a tote bag which can accommodate A4-size books.
I tried to iron the fusible interlining fabric but it seemed not working at all.  It did not fuse to the wrong side of my outer fabric. Anyway, i just sewn it. 

The tote bag has a flat bottom of 6cm.

Pens can be stored in the pocket inside. 

I sewed  the whole bag by hands only instead of sewing machine. I was worrying the seam line not tidy enough. Finally, it looks fine!

My First Purse with Metal Frame

 I bought a frame some time ago when i traveled. I would like to try out a new craft. 

I was looking for the way to make myself a purse with frame but I had no idea how to sew the frame with my fabric.  The brief instruction attached was not in detail and it mentioned pliers which confused me what to do with it.  I put aside the frame until one day i accidentally found this blog UHandbag.  I was so excited that i understood the tutorial which is very clear enough.  Immediately, I chose the little red hood fabric which i bought in Taipei and started to sew one.

I was generous enough with the glue ( I think I was) but it was quite difficult for me to insert the edge of my purse to the channels of the frame. Anyway, I'm so glad that I still able to complete this purse! Thanks Lisa, the blogger of UHandbag.

Burger at Soul Sweet

There are not many shops selling burgers in this small town.  We go to try out the burger at Soul Sweet.  I am not sure whether it is a chain store or franchise but that is not important to me.  The more important is its taste and its price.

We are so surprised that no matter its smell, its appearance and its colour, it is not worse than branded burger!    The sesame on top is not like other burgers that only appear a few seeds on top.

There are few layers in between and hence the whole burger is thick and attractive.  Of course, I am comparing it with those burgers with only a piece of meat, a piece of lettuce and some mayonnaise which form a thin burger.    

Apart from the appearance, it is so delicious that we will go to dine-in again.  This has become another form of encouragement for the kids to study harder (and smarter) and to 'redeem' this as a reward.  Oh yes, the price of the burger is RM3.80 each.  

I personally like the taste of the coffee frappuccino there too.  The only regret is insufficient of cream on top.

It is a pleasant afternoon break and we plan to go again soon.
