Bow Espadrilles

Bought a pattern on Ravelry to make this cute pair of espadrilles:

image

I don’t know if it is just me but the pattern was a tad confusing. Maybe coz i’m used to straight forward patterns. This one is a pattern for four different shoe sizes. Good thing the designer included photos and charts together with the written instructions.

I think i’ll make another one. ;)

First crochet dress

I finally made a piece of crochet clothing… a dress for a 12-18 month old child. Here’s what it looks like:

image

It’s supposed to be dark blue and pink but due to indoor lighting, it looks black. Will try to take another photo tomorrow when the sun is up.

Anyway, this is a pattern i’m testing for Cute & Kaboodle. Will give the feedback to the pattern designer tomorrow. I’m too tired at the moment to turn on the laptop.

Have a good rest and a lovely weekend, everyone!

The Craft Club yarnbombing update

image

These are the items that i mailed to The Craft Club yarnbombing event (which will be held later this month). I know it’s not much but i do hope the package reach them before 20th of August. Coz i think they need to number/itemize everything for the record.

But silly me forgot to include a note inside the envelope to let them know these are for the yarnbombing. I was so excited to mail them out that i immediately sealed the envelope after putting everything in. Heh…

Check out their Facebook page for the progress ya? They posted photos of the place that will be transformed into an Enchanted Forest. It’s a beautiful place!!!

Kooky the slug and a pseudo-ami mushroom

I received my Freshstitches kit club #9 package on Wednesday. It contained eight 8-yards hanks of wool yarn, safety eyes, the pattern for Hannah the slug & a snail-shaped measuring tape. The snail-shaped measuring tape is oh-so-adorable (see photo below with the pseudo-ami mushroom). Here’s the yarn in this kit club package:

image

Here’s the finished ami:

image

Kooky the slug is born!!! I gave him “cookie monster eyes”. Actually, i couldn’t decide what kind of eyes to put on him. So i posted the folowing photo on Instagram (for those who are interested, my IG username is @bisukiut) and let my followers decide.

image

Everyone (with the exception of one) voted for option a a.k.a. cookie monster eyes. ;)

Since i user a smaller hook size than the one recommended (i didn’t like the holes made when i used the one stated in the pattern), i had some extra yarn. So i made this pseudo-ami mushroom (free pattern at Sweet N’ Cute Creations):

image

Why the term “pseudo-ami”? Coz it does not use any stuffings at all! The designer is a genius! I am sooo going to make more of these and send them to the yarn bombing event at Essex (which i am hoping to mail the package out on next tuesday).

Crochet workshop at SMMF2014

I received a text message from a fellow yarnbomber in the late afternoon yesterday asking if i was available to conduct a crochet workshop today. So i did (coz it was supposed to be an hour starting at 11am)!
It’s at this year’s Singapore Mini Maker Faire at Senja-Cashew CC. The morning crowd was slow. I only had one “student” at 10.30am (i arrived at 10am) who was actually helping out at one of the booths there (that’s her hand in the top left hand corner of the photo collage below). Taught her to make a granny square. She enjoyed it a lot…repeatedly saying, “This is fun!” She made 2 squares (one with minimal guidance). Yay!!!

image

As i was about to leave, two girls came along and wanted to learn. I handed them a hook each and let them choose the yarn. At first, hey had trouble holding the hook and yarn but were fine after awhile. I taught the older girl the granny square while my friend showed and told the younger one to make a length of chain. More people wanted to join in so my friend went to teach them. The two girls tried their best. Through twisted stitches (which i left as it is. I couldn’t bear to frog their first attempts) and a couple of improvisations, the older girl finished her square and the younger one made an “A” (coz that’s the first letter of her name). I had to take my leave then. But… not before taking a few shots of the place.

The Craft Club yarnbombing

image

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).

Another yarnbombing at Senja-Cashew CC

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:

image

The squares and rectangles people brought along / dropped off. I see lots of my squares (the ones with the words and cat).

image

image

In case you are wondering, they yarnbombed a huge pillar / column.

image

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!
