In the newest Sailor Moon Sailor Mercury was introduced, so I  make a version of her bow.
Sorry for the photos, the lighting was bad.

:: TGIF + Shopping ::


 Hi guys! I stopped by Sears yesterday to pick up an order.

 The shoes are really cute!! I just need to break them in a little.

This is definetly my new favorite sweater. It's so soft and cozy!
On my way to pick up the order I stopped at Cole's and saw this memo pad, and I just had to get it. It will be perfect for my planner!
I also needed a new swimsuit and I love this one from Boathouse. The bow is actually on the back of the bottoms but I just put it like that for the photo.

Happy Friday! I'm tired and I'm looking forward to the weekend.

:: Flan in a Teacup Plushie ::

Flan in a Teacup Plushie
Lately I've been obsessed with the Kitchen Princess manga series. So I decided to make one of Najika's favorite recipes: flan in a teacup! 

I got the idea for the structure of the teacup and flan from this tutorial, and the idea for the whipped cream from this tutorial.

If you really were to make this, the caramel sauce would be on the bottom.But I thought it was cuter on top for the purpose of a plushie. 

The pattern is here 

Materials:
-Stuffing
-White felt
-Yellow felt
-Caramel felt
-Light pink felt
-Matching thread

1) Cut out the pieces according to the pattern

Teacup:

2) Sew the heart onto one of the white strips
3) Sew the top of the 2 white strips together using blanket stitch.
4) Sew the sides to the bottom using blanket stitch. Sew the sides together, too.
5) Sew the handle to the side of the teacup.


Halfway through! Take a break for a rest or to make some flan 
Flan:
6) Sew the caramel sauce to the side of the flan.
7) Sew the bottom of the flan to the sides and stuff. Finish sewing up the flan.
8) Sew the tips of the whipped cream together.
9) Sew the whipped cream onto the flan.

10) Put the flan in the teacup, and thats it!


Enjoy you flan in a teacup
