A first trial of my new F'dyHana KoHana (idea came from Kak Jijah) on a new attachment that I haven't tried yet which is a key ring. This one I used my leftover medium husky pink yarn from Japan. It's a smaller version of F'dyHana besides my Rose which is quite similar in size. That's why I named it KoHana= Small Flower. For the key ring I just use my available jump ring to connect the ring & the flower. So here's my new F'dyHana KoHana key ring:
I've sew a glass beads for the KoHana middle and it looks quite nice & shiny =).
Next need to try the same pattern with different yarn see how it will turn out.
Last week I've also finished an order from my friend Atikah who is now studying in Australia. I've finished the cap & hat but yet to delivery to her. Most probably I'll sent it to her within this week. Here's the photos of her cap & beret beanie:
I didn't manage to update any new stuff for couple of weeks as I was busy with trainings, meetings & friend's wedding receptions. But a few weeks ago my friend's sister Iman had requested a new pattern beanie beret. I managed create one but it to took me a bit more time as I need to adjust the new pattern I was designing with the proper size. Eventually it came out quite ok. So here's the new Lacey Beret Beanie:
The new beret beanie with a blue bow as Iman's request. The bow is slightly big around 10cm in length. I've attached a pin behind the bow so that it can be detachable whenever she like or use it as a pin on her scarf etc.

Here's some photos of me modeling the new beanie =)

Last week I made a flower hat which is adapted from baby Emily's Hat, an order from Aida for her baby girl. As I didn't quite remember the stitches for baby Emily's Hat as I just made it up on the spot without any record. I tried to make this one as close as possible using a different mix colour yarn of lilac, cotton pink & off white. So here's the new flower hat:
Closeup of the flower. This one don't have a name =P.
A view from top. The mix colour yarn makes nice pattern naturally.
Hope the hat will fit Aida's baby well & the photo session will be great =)
Last weekend I was like crazy experimenting on making two types of hairclips, double prong alligator clips & snap clips. I managed to line the double prong & cover the snap clips with felt. So here's the the result:
My first attempt to lined the double prong alligator clips. Luckily manage to make them neatly enough :)
Here's my snap clips. I've covered the snap clips with felt made from recycle bottles & sew the side with a blanket stitch.
Now the clips are ready, next is how to embellish them :)
This is a custom order from Eza. Managed to finish it along with the F'dyHana bulk order. She wanted an earthy colours & with some strips on the beanie beret. I design it with the colour & design that she choose which are brown base with light brown strips.
So here's the sketch design & the beanie:
The outcome. Eza has received this beanie yesterday & glad that she like it :). Thanks Eza!
Since last 3 weeks I was busy completing some orders and one of it was a bulk order of 50 F'dyHana Roses for Kak Jijah who is the owner of ChomelCraft. She is going to put it on her hairclips which are her expertise. Something like a 'sifu' of hairclips in Malaysia :p. The roses was sent & safely arrived yesterday. Eager to see how it turn out when she give her touch on it for her hairclips. BTW I'm in the midst on designing & making my own hairclips too. So stay tune guys :).
Here's the 50 F'dyHana Roses (reminds me of a bouquet of 50 roses :p):
Total 5 colours: White, Pink, Lilac, Red & Light Blue
A view of all of the roses. This is the first time that I made this much of F'dyHana Roses at a short time. Not that easy as I was like crazy busy with work (really unpredictable) but then I managed to squeeze my time for this order (also some beanies order) by only making them at night & weekends. Thanks to Kak Jijah for collaborative order :).
Just finished this rubber stamp today. Started carving last night but then my eyes was too sleepy until I don't know what I'm carving! Dangerous!Luckily I didn't carve away the letters or my fingers :p.
Anyway this stamp is for my MisFydKrafts thank you note. As the rubber was a bit thin so I've used a new type of mounting that I thought of trying for a long time. Not bad I guess comparing to the normal wood mounting where you need to saw & sand it. So here's my new rubber stamp:
In the process, after carving off the unwanted parts.
End result. Stamp it on the paper & it looks ok for me :)
Tadaaa~ My new mount which is from recycle cardboard box! :D. I've stamped on my recycle paper & glue it on top of the cardboard mounting.
Here's the side view of my new recycle cardboard mounting. I've glued 3 layers of the cardboard to give some thickness. Not that bad as the cardboard edges give the stamps a bit of special touch.
The best part is that we can safe more trees & less tedious work of sawing & sanding wood mounting!
