The Good Deeds Dress | Sewing | New Clothes | Mend and Make New

Decided to make a dress for my nieces.

Came across the “Good Deeds Dress” and loved the design.

However, I found it rather complicated and unclear how to add a lining.

So I decided to do a tutorial on how to do it.

How to Prepare Olives For Preserving | Part 2 | Bottling The Olives | Home Grown | Preserving Adventures

Just realised that I didn’t upload the recipe I used to bottle my olives.

So here it is. It’s been 2 years and I can say that using this recipe my olives are still delicious and mould free!

Want to find out how to remove the bitterness? Check out Part 1!

Before proceeding, I drained the brine in part 1 and soaked my olives in water over night in the fridge to remove some of the saltness.

Olives I just bottled today

Diner en Blanc | The Final Dress | Mend and Make New

Ta dah..

I am so proud of this design, the rouch is what I wanted the dress to look like.

However the “butterfly”neck line was me trying to salvage a badly freestyle cut neck line.

But thank God that it ended up the PERFECT neckline for the evening.

Since I also made butterflies to identify as a person who is a floater.

See the origami butterfly in my hair? 😛

This is the MOST comfortable fancy dress! The Roche adds quite a bit of space for sitting and eating 😉

The Final dress. Haha.. I am one of the few photographers who LOVES to be in front of the camera;) Thank you so much Cheryl from Finestone Photography for taking this photo for me:)

Check out the Work In Progress 😀

The best thing about the dress is the pocket I added on the left hand side of me:D

Would you like me to do a tutorial on how to add a hidden pocket in your dresses?

Seed Organisers For Big and Small Seeds | Home DIY | Re-Use

I have been thinking of how I can better organise my growing seed collection. I’m very excited to present to you my solution utilising re-use cardboard sheet and boxes.

Seed Organisers For Big and Small Seeds DIY Re-Using Cardboard

My big and small seed organiser. Re-used boxes and old cardboard for the dividers.It works so well! You can put in or take out a divider if you need more space for each alphabet.

I don’t even have to label the box as the bags are already doing it.

The bags I am using are the ones you can buy from stationary shops.

Scroll down or click “continue reading”  for how I did it!
