Now that I carry 5 passports (and 6 next year), the Samsonite passport holder will not zip up!
Some months ago, I bought myself a second hand sewing machine from the Singer warehouse sale. At RM430, it's cheaper than a brand new straight-stitch-only machine. This baby sews 18 patterns! I've been getting acquainted with it, sewing dresses and other stuff for my girls, with help from internet tutorials.
I also added a wrist strap for easy carrying.
Time taken : about an hour
Cost : 60sen
Satisfaction : priceless
And I learnt it all on the internet!
