Try it! Vintage Tea Towel DIY

August 15, 2013 | Try it!

Do you love tea towels as much as I do? I mean, I don’t like drying dishes as much as the next person, but a good (linen is my favourite!) tea towel can not only make the job easier, but can pretty up the kitchen at the same time. Bonus!

So that’s why I’m really liking this very simple DIY from The Purl Bee! Aren’t these vintage inspired tea towels lovely? And you can jazz them up even more by using bright threads (neon YES!) too.. so cool!

Workspace Wednesday 95.

Look! I made a top!

I made a shirt!I made a shirt!

It’s a slightly modified version of this pattern.. I didn’t do the double collar and changed the sleeves to be rolled. It’s the second top I’ve done from this pattern, and I’m slowing figuring out what works for me and what doesn’t, and altering it to fit. :)

And, it was actually a lot easier to sew this than trying to sew the t-shirt I attempted last week. I failed at the t-shirt, but this blouse I might actually wear! Success ;)

PS. Possibly should have ironed it before taking these photos.. sorry about that! Just keeping it real.

National Day 2013

August 12, 2013 | Personal, Singapore

Hi guys! How was your weekend?

We were lucky enough to have had a 4 day weekend, how great is that?! Honestly, all weekends should be 4 days long. We had Thursday off for Hari Raya, and Friday was Singapore’s 48th Birthday (National Day). Singapore marks it’s birthday every year with a huge parade around Marina Bay, but seeing as we didn’t have tickets we took a walk up to Henderson Waves Bridge to watch the jets and helicopters flying around instead. It was a beautiful afternoon, and we were even lucky enough to have the helicopters carrying giant Singaporean flags fly directly over us. Awesome!

Happy Birthday Singapore! Thanks for making us so welcome over the past couple of years.. we love it here! :)
