TheDIYMama Recipe blog

Hey All, Sorry I have been MIA for so long! I have been busy with life as a first time mother with a 2 year old toddler… one with a lot of energy and super clingy personality… Anyhow, I am able to squeeze sometime into my busy life and started something new. I have created a recipe blog where I will post all my recipe collection with photo demonstration. Please like and follow my Recipe Blog or click on “My Recipes” in the main menu of this webpage.

New pad shape and second try on breast pad

I have drawn up a new pad shape and is trying this out so my pad swap partner. I am also making several of this for my friend’s moon box that I have been putting together. I like it, easier to sew and faster.  

   Now the breast pad is a different story… My sewing machine was giving me bad attitude when I was using the overlock stitch to fake serge the edge. I don’t know about giving this to my friend as a gift:/ not cool.

First Valentine after baby

Due to the lack of babysitter today 2-14-2016, we are not doing anything special. The only thing I managed to do was to make a nice meal for lunch. Between my very demanding teething son and all the things we do on weekend, it is impossible to plan anything. At least I did make an effort to do so. Here I give you garlic Rosemary rack of lamb with garlic Rosemary roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus and mushroom in balsamic glaze.

  
No reservation needed. Oh and here’s a pic of Valentine’s Day card my son (11 months old art work made with the help of ladies at daycare)

More sewing…

Wonder what I have been up to? Well more sewing. More pad making cause I’m addicted and I mean making my own pattern testing it out or just for fun. And, buying more and more fabric! I need to stop!! I recently figured out the correct foot and the stitch in my sewing machine to do overlock stitch. I feel golden….there are some projects that you just need to have the Serged look, say cloth wipes or heart shape breast pad like bamboobies. So I made my own version of bamboobies, with flannel top for decoration and cotton velour for the soft touch to skin. Not that I need breast pad anymore since I dried up after being sick with a cold for a month. But maybe u can get better at this and list it on etsy 🙂 

Here are pics of my adventurous pads and they are quite difficult to turn. My fingers cramped up and I did tear the fabric a little bit.  Be my judge and tell me what you think??
