Instax Mini 7s & 50s Sock!

I’m quite into analog camera which uses film like lomo cameras besides my CDC =). I was planning to make my own Instax 50s a sock but I just didn’t really get it started until one of my colleague ordered a sock for her Instax 7s which gave me a push to do it! She wanted a red one:

My own Red Instax Mini 50s sock!
Here’s the Red Instax Mini 7s sock for my colleague

Both are the same design but the Mini 7s is slightly bigger than the Mini 50s. =)

Crochet Double Zipper & Cosmetic Pouch

Kak Ina is one of my my return customer & she had ordered 2 more pouches for her daughter & herself (cosmetic pouch) after the first one. Here’s the 2 pouches I’ve made for her:

Double zippered purple pouch with shell pattern stitches.
Single zippered large cosmetic pouch with inner side pocket & zigzag stitches.

Thanks again Kak Ina for the order! =)

Practicing My Lace/Thread Crochet

Last few weeks ago, I went to the Art & Crafts Guild  (ACG) Potluck Steamboat party in conjunction to ACG’s 18th birthday at Jane’s (our ACG president’s) place. We had so much fun talking, munching, sharing ideas & prezzie swap. Each of us need to bring an item handmade by ourselves for the swap & I brought my crochet beaded double wrap bracelet for the swap.

Double wrap crochet beaded bracelet, black with blue shinny beads.
The ACG 18th Birthday cake!

I was lucky enough to get some yummy thread from Kak Zarina, who is the only one that I know who dyes her own thread! Her hand dyed thread (HDT) have really nice colours! The name of this thread is Orchid Garden. Check out her blog for more of her work checkout ConcerningZarina.  I tried to crochet some flower with the thread and here’s the outcome.

It took me quite a while to finish this small flower! The size is around 3cm in diameter. I just love the colour! =D

Sew Along Bag Organizer

It was my first time joining a sew along bag organizer which was organized by a crafty group that I joined a few months back. Most of the members do sewing & they have really nice sewing machine compare to me which I have non. Although I’m planning to buy one in the future but it won’t be too soon =) Anyway, here’s what I did for the sew along, a hand sewn bag organizer:

 
 I made a size that can fit my work bag that I use everyday. I’ve used a cereal box for the inner part & cover it with some denim fabric. I also sew both side with some pockets for small & loose items.
Now I’m still using it for my work bag =)

Free Craft Workshop At The National Textile Museum

Hey guys! It’s been quite a while I have not update any post in my blog as I was quite busy with my work, orders & some preparation for workshops.

Our National Textile Museum (near dayabumi) is sponsoring free workshops for all (*limited to 20 participants each session) by The Arts & Crafts Guild members. I’m taking the baton from CrazeePatches  to do the Furoshiki workshop due to her tight schedule. If you guys wanna let how to use Furoshiki as a bag/pouch or even some decorative wrap using the Furoshiki, do come to my workshop on the 17th & 18th December at the museum.

I learned about Furoshiki while I was in Japan & always go crazy on the colourful & pretty fabrics available in the shops! As it’s hard to get the Japanese Furoshiki (expensive too) any cloth available or even scarf will do.

Anyways, here the latest schedule of the upcoming free weekend workshop by ACG members:
