car caddy (and my new year resolution)

you all know how rafael likes to bring his cars out wherever he goes, so when i learnt about this project, i know it's the one craft that i wanted to make for him. i especially like it that the caddy is unique and not available in any shops at all, and that i can make a good use of a pair of my old jeans that almost went into the recycling box.

i don't know how to operate a sewing machine yet, so i had to sew everything by hand. i know my sewing/embroidery is lousy... but i guess our little buddy won't mind.

it took me about 1 week to finish the pouch, squeezing time here and there from not surfing the net during rafael's naps, going to bed later and getting up earlier, etc. it's definitely a great reminder for myself that i can finish a whole lot more if i make a more efficient use of my time. and that if i'm really determined to do one thing, i should be able do it.

the schoolbus tag i made last time has gone missing and i was a bit upset. i think i would weep if this caddy is gone.

花了好幾小時,縫了好多百針,終於做好了這個原本要用車縫的玩具車收納袋/玩具墊。我知道我縫得不夠好,但那才好讓人知道這是手縫的嘛。昨天在咖啡店還引來一位外籍男孩的羨慕目光。:P

我的愷愷,趁妹妹未出世,很想把握機會為你做更多呢。

不過放產假時,其實我希望可以有空鑽研車衣,聽說裙子不難縫呢!

爸爸常取笑我不會做飯,又連褲子都不敢讓我來改,要找奶奶代勞。哼,我就要做好給你看,你等著瞧好了。

Haha,媽媽俾個五黎!

我以前買親d電子潮物電器玩兩個禮拜就擺低,所以當初我叫老公買焗爐衣車俾我時佢都唔係好願,唔相信我會真係焗/車,仲叫埋奶奶響日本買定mimi返學的袋袋衫衫.

啍,好彩我天生係一個睇書學o野的人(我連學車時都要買本書黎學點樣俾油同落腳制,hehe),宜家想學乜整乜,睇書睇internet就會做到.上次去mimi幼稚園,老公話我車果d袋仲靚過老師show出黎果d,hahaha.

兩仔爺宜家成日叫我整乜整乜,無用的媽媽終於抬起頭啦,努力呀.

(備註:爸爸仍然唔敢叫我改褲,hehe)

好羨慕Rafael有個好有心思的媽媽!會為自己孩子親手做事的媽媽是最美的。

各位aunties:過獎了,我也是為了自娛,做這些小手工比在工作上得到的滿足感,要多許多許多。

馬渡太太:係啦,我都係唔鍾意比人睇死!不過我自學能力唔高,要向你多多學習呀!

怒火:其實我嘅興奮程度可能仲比rafael高,不過我一整好條路,rafael就已經即時放d車落去玩,男仔真係天生鍾意車!
