Happy Birthday Bows

Here's a card I made for my coworker. As a makeup artist, we like things bright and full of colors, so I made some distress rainbows. I used watermark ink, so the black ink would take nicely to Watercolor Paper and not smear.

HandmadeQT: Pocahontas Baby Set

I've been waiting to post this picture for a long time. I made this baby set as a diaper cover bottom and top as one. Off the shoulder top. I made this pattern using own stitch. There's a button hole made unto the back of them  dress and the strap connect to it. For sandals, I used a patten variation from Youtube.

I used a double and half double crochet. I did the middle of the body with half double and single crochet. I did the shell looking stitch with puff clusters pattern I've made in the past (for pattern please check past posts) I did top and strap with double crochet. Lastly, I used a shell stitch on front post to get to dangle off like in Pochantas.

Lazy Pork Wontons

Traditional  wontons are made using s pinch/pleat method. I decided to simply triangle fold and then fry. 

Supplies :
1 lb of ground pork 
1 pack of square wonton wrappers 
1/4c of water in a bowl
3 garlic cloves minced
2 green onions, minced
1/2 c soy sauce low sodium
2 TBSP of oyster sauce
2 TBSP sesame seed oil
1 TBSP of hoisin sauce 
1 TBSP of sugar 
1 TBSP of sriracha 
Oil for Frying + 2 TBSP

1. In a bowl,  add meat, make a well. mix all sauces, except water. 

2. In a Frying pan fry shallots and garlic until it becomes fragant. Then transfer into bowl.

3. You must mix all liquids with meat. Cover with plastic wrap. Let marinate for at least 2 hours. (I left mine for 5 hours)

4.  Take pork mix and place in the center of wrapper. Add water on top side and width side of wrapper, fold over to Form a triagle. Press meat mixture to flatten wonton.

5. On med-high hot oil, fry wontonuntil it's golden brown. Place on paper bag to absorb oil. Serve with some hoisin sauce + sriracha mixture.

HandmadeQT: Sandals

Here's what I'm workingon at the moment. It's a pair of toddler-sized sandals with double soles for reinforcement. I'm constantly on the go, my little one doesn't like shoes at all. So makin these soup with be easier to strap on. I'm thinking of adoing velcro to the strap once I figure out to get to stay on yarn. If not a button will work too. The finished product will be up this week!
