Experiment: PVC leather Ipod Casing

Another experiment with my available PVC leather stock. I did this last month. As it’s very hard to make stuff for guys or men, so I tried to make a ‘guy’ ipod casing with my pattern PVC. It’s my old  5G Ipod video 30GB, so mind the chunkyness! =D). So here’s the result:


 Some closeup photo of the casing. I did the strap myself using leather cord, ribbon crimp end & some of my jewellery making stuff. I’ve used some see thru plastic sheet for the display & touch panel & felt inner lining to give more protection to my precious Ipod. All hand sewn! =)

Some snapshot of my guy model (my Pdy) modeling with the new Ipod casing. =)

I guess some girls maybe will like this type of funky casing too. BTW I did my mobile casing with similar PVC but didn’t snap any photos.
What do you think about this guys?


My 1st ATC: Mangosteenskin Butterfly ATC Swap

CI was excited to join Mangosteenskin’s 2nd ATC swap themed Butterfly as she gave a green light for other medium (besides drawing & painting) to participate! Thanks Mango! I know it’s really a late post as the due was 1st of May! I’ve actually finished them in March!

Anyway compare to my friends ATC like MikyLayna & Namizam, their work are amazingly stunning! Here’s my not so stunning first butterfly ATC which somewhat has a dark & gloomy look =P
Oh ya, if you thinking what the heck is ATC, you can check out here for more details 😉

My three Butterfly ATC. I always love to mix my technique. You can see I have embroidery, beading,crochet & cro-tat technique here & there.

Had you guys participated in any ATC swap before? =)

PVC leather pouch!

It was an order from Sakinah which get me started to make the PVC small pouch. She ordered one to put all her USB drives.

As it was my first try on PVC leather, I’ve tried to make a trial pouch for starters just to get the correct dimension & everything as hand sew PVC leather is not like normal fabric where once you poked it with needle it, the hole will stay there. Here’s some photo of both pouches that I did:

Not that neat as I was experimenting with the sewing the zipper, PVC & felt lining.

Nearly the same template as the first one with just a little amendments. I also lined this one with felt.
Hope that Sakinah will like her new USB PVC pouch! =)

A Fun Weekend in Putrajaya

Last Sunday I went to Putrajaya with Mikko & Miyyah to checkout our crafter friends & ACG member booth. I went there with Mikko & we planned to meetup with Miyyah at the Belia market in the 1 Million Youth Gathering Day(3 days event). The event was humungous! There were tents of several pavilion from each Minister Office in the Putrajaya (BTW Putrajaya is the federal administrative for Malaysia).  Initially Mikko & me didn’t know where exactly the market is so we parked at the pink mosque in Presint 1, eventually we walked thru all the tents until Presint 4 where the Belia market is! I’ve checked the google map and it was 2.5km (around 30min) walk under the hot noon sun! The tiredness was nearly forgotten after we reached our destination! We 3 had much fun looking around the booths, meetup with some of our crafter friends & ACG member Adam & Shahril selling their fashion stuff (frugal mugal) and also snapping tonnes of fun photos there! Most of them in Miyyah’s camera, will try to get the photo from her as soon as she uploaded them!. Here’s some photo (not much) that I took with my camera =)

 Fun posing with the Lomo wall by a LomoKids Malaysia at the Belia Market. The wall was really pretty with all the colourful lomo photos! I too play with camera from Lomography but not that active. I have a Fisheye 2, Supersampler & Fuji Instax poloroid camera. If you are wondering what is Lomography, basically is analogue photography. You can checkout more info on it from the Lomography site.
After the fun adventure in the Belia Market, we went down to Alamanda Mall to have our lunch & dessert! Here some photo of us enjoying our ice cream!

 So what did you do last weekend?
