First custom order of the year: Custom Froggy Beanie & Instax Mini 7s Sock

One of my first few customer of the year (February) ordered a custom froggy beanie for her baby & an Instax Mini 7s sock for her camera. She requested the froggy beanie to have a pop up eye like ears, so here’s the outcome:

Froggy Earflap Beanie. It was my first time creating character beanie & it was fun =D

                                                                               

Pop fuchsia pink Instax Mini 7s Sock as requested.

Thanks Zamzila for your order! =)

Iphone 4 socks & Baby Beanie

My first order for iphone4 socks & a baby beanie from Atiqah last year. She ordered 2 iPhone4 socks, red & dark blue. Here’s the socks I’ve made:

I’ve used a stitch like fish scales for the red sock & the basket weave stitch for the dark blue. I also sew my plastic tag on both of the socks.
Here’s the baby beanie I’ve made for her:
She choose the pink mix coloured yarn for the beanie. I crocheted an OoHana for the beanie where she can detached it my untie the ribbon & the back.
Thanks Atiqah for the order! =) 

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. =)

Custom Triple Zippered Crochet Pouch!

This is a custom order pouch by Kak Ina for her mobile phones (which I think she have 2) and all the other miscellaneous stuff that she want to be in one place. Here’s the finished pouch: 

All the zippers & inner felt lining are hand sewn (No sewing machine). It take me some time to figure out how to make the triple zipper compartments. This maroon pouch has safely passed to Kak Ina. 
She loves it. Thanks Kak Ina!
I got another 2 pouch order from her, one for herself  (cosmetic pouch) & another one for her daughter Need to work out with the design soon! =)

My Handmade Crochet Hook & Accesories Case

I didn’t have a proper casing for my crochet hooks before. Normally I just put them in a plastic case with all of my other tools. I eventually made this as Mikko decided to start crochet/knitting hook case project with a few crafty friend quite sometime ago. Here’s my new hook case:

My denim folded hook case tie with faux leather cord.  All the sides were hand sewn with blanket stitch. No machine stitches at all for this case as I don’t even have a sewing machine. Ok I lied, I have one but the small type sewing machine which just can make running stitch, rarely in used that as the stitch is not that good. =)

I’ve used felt for the inner part and hand sew some compartments for my hooks & thread snipper. I’ve also sew some denim pockets for my needles, thread, measuring tape & small accessories.
Now this is my favorite case as I can have all my tools that I usually use in one place!
Anyone has done your own casing for your craft tools? 
Do share as I would love to see your version of handmade casing  =)

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:

 Tadaaaaa~~~

 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?

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! =)
