About Me

Howdy, I am Mandy

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, a city so vibrant and inspiring.  Growing up there has its advantages but also disadvantages. It is a norm to be just like everyone else with the media focusing on certain trends and lifestyles.  Every kid wants to go to a good school, get good grades, go to college, get a great job, make lots of money; however, I was never ambitious like the rest of them.  I didn't feel like I fit in.  So I decided to see the world to broaden my horizon.

Places I've Been
Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com

From the age of 15, I have been to all over the world, and eventually went to college in the US and met the love of my life during a trip to France.  We dated for 7 years and married in 2008.  My life has been a roller coaster just like everyone else's and I was really lost for a while, not knowing what I really love, what I wanted to do, what my hobbies are.  Until I found sewing.

I first came across sewing from my neighbor who made costumes, from there, I got my first cheapie sewing machine and started making things following patterns.  Over time, I discovered the joy of making up my own designs and using used clothing, repurposing thrift store finds and now I am also embroidering.

This blog is basically a diary of my sewing, I am not a great writer or have very interesting topics to discuss, I simply hope to share my sewing experiences with others.   I learned how to sew less than 3 years ago so please bear with me as I am still a newbie with lots more to learn, more trial and errors, more discoveries.

I will try by best to post tutorials to what I made, leave me a comment or advice, ENJOY!

  1. I love your site and put it in favorites. I like it because it seems to be humble and I feel the same way about sewing. I have been sewing for 50 years and I like to remake, create useful things from my head and common sense. I love for people to be able to use and enjoy what i make. Thanks for the great ideas I have found on your site. I am about to make a go at the ipad cover from old jeans.


I love comments! And I thank you for taking the time to show me some love! Thank you!
