Mini Strawberry Cupcake (& a custom order)

It’s been a while since i posted photos of my mini. Here’s Mini Yaney with my latest FO:

A mini strawberry cupcake (free pattern from Moji-Moji Design). Well… in her case, it doesn’t look too mini at all. In fact, now that i look at the photo, it looks like Mini Yaney is holding a regular sized cake. Hehe…

Anyway, i didn’t have any DK yarn in the desired colours so i used a fingering weight yarn instead. I did use a 3.75mm hook (coz i don’t have a 3.5mm hook and i didn’t want the cupcake to turn out too small by using a 3mm hook). The final cupcake measures about 4cm in diameter and about 5cm tall. Do you think it’ll make a cute pin cushion?

Yesterday i finished a custom order for 5 felt card holders. Here they are:

Cutting small pieces of felt is no joke! I’m happy that they turned out cute. ;)

Well that’s all from me for now. Time to turn off the light and make a trip to Zzz land.

Wawa Doll loom version (& other updates)

image

My friend, Sandra, lent me her 24 peg circular loom. I watched a few youtube videos on how to cast on (i followed along), make loom hats & doll. As i watched, my hands just kept on looming without really following. I ended up with this. Hehe… The hair is a flower loom made using novelty yarn. It’s pretty easy to make but uses quite a lot of yarn.

We had two Wawa Doll meet ups this month. Here are the dolls that gathered:

image

Aren’t they just adorable? I absolutely love them!

I’ve been rather busy making stuffs to sell come 5 May – 5 Jun 2015. Actually i am not too sure how much stock i should have. Any suggestions?

I also made a family of dolls but i can’t post a photo up yet coz the customer wants it to be a surprise for the wife’s birthday.

Talk about birthday, my niece’s birthday was yesterday and i made this for her:

image

She used it when she went out today. :) (if you are interested, you can purchase the fabric from Spoonflower).

And i just have to share this with all of you:

image

Aren’t they just kawaii? My swap partner, Farhana, gave these to me. She printed the fabric and painted “me”.

That’s it from me. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Mini Airplanes (& other updates)

Would you like to fly with me? ;) I love to travel (but that doesn’t mean i do a lot of it)… to see the world… to discover the beauties in different places. But… it’s not a luxury that i can indulge in at the moment. So i decided to make these airplanes:

image

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?

I’ve been making lots of things (& will continue to make more) coz i’ve rented a space at Craft Assembly (located at 61 Haji Lane Singapore 189254) for a month. Here are some things that i’ll be putting up for sale:

image

One of a kind animal cord wraps to keep those wires untangled.

image

Mini Daruma that has detachable eyes so they are like the original Daruma where you put one eye at the start of goal making and the other eye once you’ve achieved your goal.

image

Card case (can be fixed to a lanyard) made using fabric that i’ve designed on Spoonflower.

image

Assorted coffee cup sleeves… & many more.

If you are in Singapore, do pop by Craft Assembly (nearest mrt is Bugis) from 5 May to 5 June 2015 and purchase something that i’ve made. It would mean a lot to me. =)

Ok back to making… have a wonderful weekend everyone!

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!

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:

image

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.
