Polkadot Boxy Top

I spent the entire day just to make this simple boxy top yesterday. This is my second attempt to make boxy top. I made the first one almost a year ago and it didn't turn out really good but still wearable. Let me show you my first boxy top.

And here is my second attempt ...

Though it's better than my first boxy top, it didn't go as I planned. My first plan was to attach peter pan collar on this boxy top but in the process, I cut the neck hole too big so I had to make some pleats on the neck line to make it smaller. I thought it would be too much if I still attached the collar on it. 
So my next to-do list is to make another boxy top with peter pan collar on it for my daughter. 

Happy Sewing

Macaron Coin Purse

I have seen a lot of tutorials on how to make macaron coin purse and I just can't help myself for not making one. My macaron coin purse was made exactly the same as  those tutorials, the only thing that differentiates mine and those macaron coin purses is the main material used for making my macaron coin purse. Most tutorials tell you to use cover button as one of its material but mine doesn't. I use the cap from 5 gallon water bottle instead. Yes, I have a lot of them because in my country, it's impossible to drink water directly from the tap. So if you want to drink here, you must either boil the water first or buy the bottled water.
