Harry Potter Pencil Case

I finally finished making the Harry Potter pencil case (which was supposed to be a softie along with Ron and Hermione):

image

It took me a bit longer coz i didn’t have any zipper. So i had to go down to the shop to buy one. If you are interested, here’s the step-by-step instruction on how i made it.

image

Cut about 0.5cm around the grey line.

image

Cut the same size on another fabric for the lining.

image

Also cut a piece of felt (the width is slightly wider than the zipper) long enough to go around Harry’s silhouette (mine is less than 70cm).

image

Pin the zipper into place. Cut a rectangle where thr zipper’s teeth are. Sew in place.

image

Pin the felt to both Harry and the lining pieces. Ensure that right sides of Harry are facing each other and right sides of the lining fabric are facing out. Also ensure that the zipper is open. Sew in place.

image

Trim any excess fabric.

image

Then cross-whip stitch the edges to minimize fraying. If you have those machines that can sew edging, then you could do that first before sewing the felt around the edges.

image

Turn it inside out…& you have your very own Harry Potter pencil case!

Everybody, meet Ang and Bel. Two owl friends who came for a short visit. They enjoy sharing a bowl of chocolate mint icecream and a cup of hot cocoa.

Zombie Cat

When i was on the train to the Singapore Art Museum, i drew some ideas for earphone cord holder/wrap. This is the result of an idea to a sketch on paper to a physical object:

What do you think of this Zombie Cat earphone cord holder? I’m thinking of making a few more and putting them up for sale.

Froggy Boy and Mini Humti

Yesterday night i finished this Froggy Boy Wawa Doll:

image

This afternoon i finished Mini Humti. I didn’t really know what i was making. I just went along with the hook (if that makes any sense). Anyway, Mini Humti looked as if he should be sitting on a wall. For his own safety, i told him a wall would be way too high for someone like him. Then he spotted my nanoblock models and asked if the bridge is safe enough. “Why not?” I thought. So here he is…

image

I dare say that he looks mighty happy.

Wawa Doll meet up & Amigurumei meet-n-greet

We had a Wawa Doll meet up today. It’s a smaller turn out compared to the previous sessions. But it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t fun coz it was! ;) Plus some of those who came for the previous meet ups came down to drop off their completed Wawa Doll to us. Here’s the headcount for now (these are only the ones done by public participants. Those done by the organizing team are not featured here):

image

I really love how others injected various personalities to the Wawa Dolls. I especially love the granny with her ‘pasar’ trolley and the gorgeous Robyn doll with the suitcase and flirty lashes. We have collected about 17 Wawa Dolls. That means we still need another 33. We should be able to get the number by June.

I also went to Amigurumei’s meet-&-greet session. She’s the author of the Hello Kitty Crochet book. She brought along her amigurumis and they are all soooo cute.

image

Aren’t they just adorable? I love the way she uses brads for the cheeks and some of the eyes.

image

Of course i had to ask her to sign my copy of her book! I even showed her my Wawa Dolls. =D
… and made her amigurumis pose in photos with mine:

It really is a yarn filled Saturday! Hope your weekend is as wonderful as mine!

Gnomnom the gnome and a blue flower brooch

image

Gnomnom winks a “hello” to everyone. He loves exploring the world. On one of his exploration, he found this huge blue flower.

P.S. Mochimochi Land is going to have an art exhibition in Seoul, Korea. If you would like to contribute a gnome (or two or more), then head on down to this website for more details.

A variety of coffee cup sleeves (& other stuffs)

I haven’t been holding my hook since i finished the corner to corner scarf. Instead i’ve been working with felt (and the fabric i designed and ordered from spoonflower.com).

Here are the coffee cup sleeves that i made totally from scratch. Yup! You heard me right. I didn’t print off the template for it off the net (coz my old lappy can’t sync with my new printer). Neither did i use a cafe given one for the template (coz i don’t drink coffee).

image

What do you think? I really love the animal shapes.

I also made another coaster and card case.

image

image

And… because i was bored on a Saturday morning, i made this koala earphones holder:

image

I love working with felt! But i do miss my hook. 😅
