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:
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 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:
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! =)
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:
I made lining with black felt (first time!) & sew my label on it.
A F’dyShawl for my good friend Amal who celebrated her birthday on the 31st Dec. For her, I embellished a rose pink jersey shawl with some crochet edging.
One of my crafter friend Norlie from Sekoci Norlie will be organizing a felt craft at the end of this month 30th January 2011. If your kids are into craft, do have a try & join Sekoci Norlie’s felt class!
Oh BTW your kids will also have a chance to be features in TV3 Kids News too! =)
