Found out about this from a thread in Ravelry. It’s not in Singapore though. The event is in UK. Installation will be done on 25 August 2014 at Little Havens Garden. If you are in UK, maybe you would like to support them (i know i would love to pop by if i were in Essex right now).
There was another yarnbombing session yesterday… the final one before Singapore’s Mini Maker Faire. I wasn’t free to join them but here are some photos posted by members of yarnbombingsg:
The squares and rectangles people brought along / dropped off. I see lots of my squares (the ones with the words and cat).
In case you are wondering, they yarnbombed a huge pillar / column.
They even let people write their thoughts. Mine were emailed and they helped me write it down. =) I really enjoyed myself with this group. Hope to have more yarnbombing sessions in future!
Hie everyone! Hope everyone is well and good. June was a really busy month at work with holiday programmes and extra events. I am glad that is over.
Now i’m sure you’ve heard of the Rainbow Loom. It’s the “in” thing now. So i just had to give it a try. I started out by making simple bracelets.
Then a friend posted on FB a photo of a fireman made out of rubberbands. She said that there are tons of youtube video tutorials on how to make loom characters. I checked them out and have thus far tried these:
Okay wait… let me rewind a bit. I didn’t make the above ones first. I started out with something small and what i thought were simpler ones.
The camera (modified it by using double bands instead of single bands that have been looped), ladybug and Eiffel Tower above were my first few makes and since they were rather small, i decided to attach them to my bracelets.
The bunny head in the second pix above is partially my own design. I followed a tutorial to make a baby bunny. When i was taking the bands off the loom, i realized there were a couple that i forgot to hook!!! So i had to scrap the whole thing and only managed to salvage the ears, eyes & nose. Not wanting to waste time turning on the iPad and watching the video all over again (it was a 30 min tutorial), i decided to try making my own design. Hence the rabbit is born!
It was cool to design my own character, so i tried a few more. What do you think of these:
The bird is supposed to be an owl (but turned out more like a penguin or just a bird), the other two are cats (in case you couldn’t figure them out coz i know they look kinda strange). I know… i still have lots of improvements to make. ;)
Thanks for reading this rather long post! To the Muslim readers out there, have a blessed Ramadhan. To everyone else, happy midweek!!!
After much contemplation on whether or not to go to the yarnbombing session today, i ended up going. Here are the squares that i brought along for the event:
Plus a T-rex applique which i made using a free pattern on the web (sorry i can’t remember which website it is from):
The journey was shorter than i anticipated (about 1hr 30min). Went there via Woodland. I even had time for breakfast with Flat Stanley before going to the yarnbombing event. ;)
We spent the morning joining up the squares. The group making the cardboard T-rex were still assembling it when i left at 12.30pm. Today’s group consisted of quite a number of familiar faces and a few new ones. There were two guys… one very adapt with sewing and another could come up with gorgeous squares off the top of his head. I am impressed.
There will be another session at Senja-Cashew CC on 13 July 2014 from 10am. Unfortunately, i don’t think i’ll be able to make it. But for those of you who can, do make your way down and join in the fun!
Bradz Sprocket is a genius. He is able to tell you the answers to your questions. He is honest (so your questions will always be answered truthfully) and a helpful lil roboy to have around (especially with the paper clips and pins).
Bradz Sprocket is my very first Freshstitches Kit Club pattern. I have been contemplating whether or not to join the club. After months of contemplation, one day i just thought i should just sign up for it. I love how easy it is to make the box shape. I absolutely love how Bradz turned out (the last i checked, Bradz has gotten 30 likes on my instagram account).
I finally finished my very first plarn bag!!! Woohoo for recycling! It took quite a long while (almost a month) coz i had to wait for plain plastic bags. I didn’t keep track of how many plastic bags i used though (i should have done that). I’m going to make more plarn bags that’s for sure.
It’s been a busy month with the holiday programmes kicking off at the start of June. I haven’t been able to crochet as much as i want to coz everytime i come home from work, i’m way too tired that i only feel like lying down. But i still managed to make some squares (to keep my sanity).
Next Sunday is another yarnbombing session. I still haven’t decided whether to go down or not.
