My Melody (and custom bag tags)

It was my niece’s birthday yesterday. What does the aunt who loves crafting whip up? A custom drawn tote bag and a My Melody amigurumi!

The amigurumi was made from amiguruMei’s Hello Kitty Crochet book. I’ve bought the book for quite a while. Even had it signed during a meet-and-greet session with Mei earlier this year. Now i’ve finally made something from it!

Today i took out my stash of felt:

Coz a friend ordered some bag tags to be given to her students for Children’s Day (which is in October here in Singapore). First thing i did was to make the templates:

It’s a simple bag tag with the child’s initial on one side and their name written on the other.

Here’s how far i’ve gotten after 2 hours plus:

Hopefully all the handstitching won’t take too long to finish.
