Flower Vine Necklace

The first order for my flower vine necklace by Wan. I’ve changed the designed a bit as she wanted to put more flower. So here’s the necklace:

  Initially she wanted 2 flowers but I’ve added another different design flower (freestyle) to balance the flower bunch.
BTW Marta from Creative Yarn has started blogging again! I got this flower vine necklace inspiration from her free pattern the white flower necklace. I’ve adopted the idea design & changed the pattern. She’s is a great crocheter & knitter who shares her great free pattern. Do check out her blog =) 

My Family Mobile Sock – Experimenting

A backdated post. While I was relaxing for the 2 weeks holiday in December with my popo (grandma), mum, my 2 bro & sis, I managed to crochet some small items for them, my Pdy & myself. This was including the New Year/Christmas present swap for cousin in the previous post. I’ve crocheted 6 simple mobile socks for my mum, bro, sis, pdy & 2 for myself. Here’s some photos of the socks that I’ve made:

I’ve used the Mohair acrylic mix yarns that I’ve bought from Daiso. It was the first time I’ve used these type of yarns. The yarns are soft & furry!
BTW The 3 mobile socks in the photo are my sis, bro & myself. Not in the photo is my mum’s mobile sock  (black mix) & my 2nd mobile sock (brown mix), both with slightly different design. =) 
I’m using my 2nd design with button (not in the photo) & the furry mohair is getting furrier than before! =P



Mangosteen Craze: Last Custom Order of the Year 2010

I kept this post for quite sometime. The last custom made order that I’ve received for 2010 is from a Malaysia well-known eraser carver friend Mangosteenskin. She ordered 6 Oohana pins & a custom Mangosteen theme pin. I’ve designed 2 mangosteen theme pins for her to pick but eventually she choose both =)

Here’s the photos of her order:

As you can see she’s is really crazy about mangosteen =D. It’s the first time I make these type of pins & really enjoyed bling the crochet pins with beads. The beads does make them pop!

Actually when I was small, I had a bad experience being stung by 3 hornet/wasp on my head while I picking some mangosteen under a mangosteen tree at my late granpa’s ‘kebun’ (fruit graden). I can’t really remember the hospitalization or anything except crying out loud. My mum said that my head & body was puffed like a melon. Despite that I still like mangosteen! =)

I absolutely enjoyed making these pins! Thanks Mango for your order. =)

Extra Mini Shell Pouch for New Year/Christmas Present Swap

Every year on Christmas/New Year, my family normally have a present swap session with my mum’s sis family (my aunt). Although my family do not celebrate Christmas (my Aunt do), we really enjoy this present swap session as it’s fun to get present from each other. It’s like our family tradition. Who doesn’t like the surprise & excitement of getting a present right? =)

So every year each family will do their selection session to know who are you going to give the present. This year I have picked my cousin Kim & lil Nat For Nat I’ve bought a craft kit for her to try to make her own decorative headband. But I was having some difficulties to pick a present for my teenage cousin Kimberly as I know she had received the normal accessories (earrings etc) for these few years. Eventually I’d decided to get crafty & make something for her. A mini shell pouch, a smaller version of the mini bag. So here’s the pouch:

This pouch is around 9x7cm in size with 2 gold vintage button to fasten.
I made lining with black felt (first time!) & sew my label on it. 
Hope she’ll like it =). Can’t wait to get mine present soon (still in Kuching)!
