I  drew the pattern of these house boots freehand based on my feet.

The fabrics I used are Linen for the surface and quilted linen and faux fur inside.

They are warm and comfy!

Visiting Shizutani School in Okayama, Japan.

It was a nice quiet day.

I love the old architecture with these huge wood pieces.

This place makes me very calm and fresh.

It could be a formal dress

but this round form and golden zipper give it a little more fun element.

 

 

 

The pattern idea came from this lace dress.

I changed the back neck line and the body shape.

My first Sausage rolls

 

 

 

 

Sausage rolls

 

I made these sausage rolls for the first time. It turns out really good and I thought  I should keep the note here in my blog.  I’m into baking breads these days, so there will be more post about bread from now on!

 

6 Sausage roll

Ingredients :

Bread flour 200g

Butter 20g

Sugar 10g

Salt 1/2 tsp

Water 120cc

Dry yeast 3g

Sausage 6sticks

 

Bread maker setting :

Schnellteig – The fast preparation of dough function.

 

After the dough is done in the Bread maker,

take it out and divide into 6 pieces and make them nice round shape.

Leave them about 10mins.

Roll the dough out and wrap the sausage in.

Wait about 30 mins.

Top with some ketchup and chopped Parsley.

Bake about 18mins in 180°c preheated oven.

 

Note for the next time:

Extra ketchup inside with sausage would be nice.

Add some mustard or cheese as well.

This ingredients may too loss for may bread maker. It didn’t mix well, so I will increase the amount to see how it goes.
