MisFydKrafts First Homemade Tape Label

Last weekend I was excited & eager to try to make my on labels based on Laurraine's Fabric Label PatchworkPottery's tut that was posted by Aisyah Daily DIY in My Tinker Space.

My check list & plan was:
1) Buy an inkjet printer @ Tesco near my place
2) Buy some iron on transfer paper @ Midvalley
3) Buy some cotton tape @ Macy (plus some new yummy yarns...muahahhah)
4) Redesign the logo fit for the labels
5) Install printer & test print the labels
6) Print the labels & cut them
7) Iron on cotton tape

So I went to buy an inkjet printer @Tesco on Saturday. Hehe don't have a printer after my previous one had broken quite some time ago :p. Well now I can do more printing work for my eraser stamps patterns too. :)

On Sunday, I drive to Midvalley to buy some iron on transfer paper at one of the computer shop. Quite expensive! Well anyway I just bought it to try it off & I can get a lot of labels for one A4. Then I bought some cotton tapes, the white one that normally ppl use for sewing along with some new chunky yarns @Macy on the same day. Later I just managed to redesign my logo a bit & layout it several sizes on A4 format.

On Monday, I've installed my printer, printed my labels on the transfer paper then iron it on the cotton tape. Not all the label are ok as some did melted b'cos I ironed too long :p.

Anyway, here's some photos of my first self made labels:

 My first home made labels!

One of the melted labels caused by excessive ironing :p
Hope I'll do better next time :)

Crochet Slouchy Beanie Squary

After the pink beret beanie, I start to design another beanie the same Friday night. :p
This time I create my own design with a squarish top which looks more like the original slouchy beanie snow cap. Personally I luv this one. So here's the my new design blue beanie:

It looks plain when it's flat. Same as the pink beret it looks like a weird square head mushroom :p

So here's how it looks like when I wear it. With a darker color & bigger size, I think men/boys also can wear it. What do you think?

Crochet Slouchy Beanie Beret Style

I'm really into beanie fever since last week after I bought those chunky yarns last weekend :p.

So last Thursday night I've started to make a new beanie. This time is beret style. After google myself away searching ideas on how to make one I've finally found one that I understand the pattern from Quazen by Dvorah. It's quite easy to make. I made one with my own adjustment. Finished it on Friday night. So here the new pink beret style slouchy beanie:

Weird looking mushroom shape when it's standing :p

A bit girly type of slouchy beanie. What do you think of this beanie?

Rubber Stamp - Mabbits Cookies (with smiley)

Just managed to update this :p.
On Monday night, I was like crazy to make a rubber stamp. So I took Amal's writing for her sister Iman's Mabbits (She a young baker whose cookies are great & also she's selling them at her myspace) which was attached on the Mabbit's cookies that Amal gave to me. So here's the result:

  For the top, this time I stamped on a recycles paper then glue in on the rubber stamp. This is the easiest way to deco the top for me as don't have any wood & equipments for a proper mounting.  The eraser was kinda hard so normal paper is just fine to glue on the surface.
At least it looks presentable compare to my previous stamps. 
Hmm maybe I should try to make all my stamp with the stamped paper top next time. 
 BTW I gave this stamp to Iman for her early birthday gift :)

Crochet Beanie Hat with Short Visor

Feeling awful not updating for more than one week! Quite tired & busy with work last week.

Well anyway, I didn't stop my craft work :). Last Saturday I managed to buy some yarn & button supplies at Macy. Then, when out with friends to see the hot air balloon at Putrajaya at night. The balloons were great & the fireworks were awesome.

Sunday I tried to make something using my 'fresh' yarns. I bought some chunky yarns to try my new project which is a beanie hat. Initially I've tried to make a snow cap for men (for my Pdy) with a thinner yarn but eventually turned out too small :p. Need more adjustment with the number of stitches. Anyway, got stuck with the snow cap so I turned to my new chunky yarns as I really wanted to make something. I've designed the pattern myself. So here's my new beanie hat:

 Mind my big ears :p. 
I've designed it with a simple boyish look using normal stitches so I think boys also can wear them.
So what do you think of this beanie?

Sneak Peak - New Ideas, New projects

Here's a sneak peak of new things that I've tried last weekend. Still thinking what should I use them for. Tonnes of ideas in mind :)

New F'dyHana Hana on a Prezzie!

I was just finished wrapping a prezzie for my ex housemate new born baby, then it struck me to try one of my earliest to do list which is using F'dyHana as a wrapping accessory replacing the conventional ribbon. So I took my needle & design a new F'dyHana for this which I call just plain Hana as I don't know what flower this is :p. Anyway, the Hana alone was so plain with only the button at the middle, so I added some green leaves with it. So here's my new F'dyHana as a gift wrap accessory:

Ahhh nearly forget about the pin. I attach the pin so the mummy also have a prezzie too! 
A new flower pin for her. She deserve a prezzie too after all the hard work :)

I pin the Hana on a black yarn that I've tied over the wrapped prezzie.
So what do you think about this new usage of my Hana? 2 in 1 prezzie :)

Crochet Tawashi (編みタワシ)

Today I read my friend Aisyah's Daily DIY on crochet Tawashi or dish scrubbie. The tutorial is from Craft Stylish by Linda Permann. For quite some time I was in Japan didn't knew about this crochet Tawashi (shame on me :p). Well my hand was itchy to try to make one so I finished one today. The pattern was not that hard. So here's my new crochet Tawashi:

My Green & Orange Tawashi, 11cm in diameters. I've used Sirdar Acrylic Yarn for this one. Can't wait to try it when I wash my dishes! :)

Hmm.... just wondering whether can it be a body scrub sponge??

New Creation - Crochet Applique Bookmarks

Although I'm quite busy starting this week with my scientist work, I plan to create at least one new creation per week for my therapy :p. So I won't be able to update my blog that frequent ****sob,sob :(****.

Anyway this week I managed to try one of my to-do-list item, which is book mark. Honestly I'm not really a book person, but I guess it will be useful for anyone who like to indulge in thick novels or books :p. It might be a nice gift too.

For this first try, I made some crochet applique & glue it onto a hard type plastic sheet where you can get in any stationary shop. Punch a hole & slip in a ribbon. So here's the new bookmark:

What do you think? 
I have a bit of problem on making the glue look nice at the back side of the bookmark as the plastic sheet is kinda see thru. I've tried UHU glue for the first one but it makes it a bit messy, then I've tried glue gun, a bit cleaner but still not that nice looking.
Anyone has a suggestion on what type of glue or how to glue this acrylic appliques on plastic sheet nicely so that it's more presentable when ppl flip it?

Thanks for supporting & buying MisFydKrafts

Yesterday just right before I want to go out for work....... I've locked myself between the outside grilled & outside door (enterance area) for nearly 1hour!
Yeap...first time ever I locked myself in as I left my keys in the house, the house maintenance management's technician have to cut the padlock to safe me who was locked like a convict + need to break my door knob & change to a new one ***sigh*** Luckily I was still on time for work.......
 The cut padlock & the busted door knob

Anyway, despite that awful morning, I managed to sell some of MisFydKrafts from my colleagues (F'dyHana Hp strap & pin, crochet bracelet & crochet ring). Got some new orders too for F'dyHana Rose.
Thanks guys for all of your support! ***hugs*** I'm so happy. I'll try to create more nice accessories in the future. 

Thanks to all followers too (Total 17 followers since I open my blog in January...oh non-public follower too if there's any).  I hope you all will enjoy browsing all of my creations. Hope to please the eyes of everyone out there.

Please do keep commenting. I love comments!  ;) It's kinda motivation to create good stuff, get new ideas & of course, for sharing & learning too.

Thanks again!

MisFydKrafts Badges are Available for Grabs

Today I was busy designing for MisFydKrafts Badges & learn how to post it so that ppl can grab them. It's been quite some time that I was thinking to make them & of course it took me awhile to learn how to play around with the HTML codes (still learning). With the high tech knowledge library of the 'internet', some very generous ppl out there that shares their knowledge & a bit of hard work, I have successfully post them myself :).

You can grab one of my badge here, or click at the badge above.


How to add your own 'Grab my badge or link me' button 

Maybe a lot of you all out there are thinking of making your own badge/button for your blog, don't know how to start, will spent a lot of time figuring how to make them like me.

To make your work easier, without thinking so much of the HTML codes, here's a simple step by step on how you can add your own 'Grab my badge or link to me' button for your blog:

First, you have to create a badge size around 125x125 pixel.
Of course you can create bigger one but make sure it can fit in most sidebars in blogs. For me, I've created a few sizes so that everyone can choose. You can use any photo editing software such as photoshop or GIMP, logo making software such as AAA Logo to design your badge. For me, I've used AAA Logo & GIMP to design & edit my badges.

After you had create your badge, upload the badge in a photo hosting account such as photobucket, flickr etc. You can get the badge URL there. For example, you can click at the badge below:

The URL address will be something like this:

Next, to add it in your sidebar (for blogger),
go to--> layout > page element > add gadget > HTML/Javascript

Then copy & paste the code below replacing your information in red text:

<a href="http://yourblogaddress.com/" target="_blank">
<img src="http://yourphotowebaddress.com/yourphoto.jpg" border="0" /></a>

<textarea rows="3" cols="20"><a target="_blank" href="http://yourblogaddress.com/"><img border="0" src="http://yourphotowebaddress.com/yourphoto.jpg" border="0" /></a></textarea>


Finally, just save & try it. :)

I hope this will help & simple enough to understand.
Good luck! If you have any problem feel free to ask me.
Although I'm also new in this thing, I'll try my best to help.
