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. =)
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
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.
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.

Hi guys! I'm back from a very long Raya holiday. Hope that everyone had some fun in the Raya holidays. A lot crafty new stuff happened since before Raya & I'll be catching up some post from now.
This a repeat order from Mysara Mangosteenskin for the mangosteen brooch/badges way back before Raya =D. She's such a sweet heart that her previous one was given away although she love it so much! This time she ordered 5 of them =)
It's in my plan for quite sometime like 3 months ago and now I've settled all the layout & some stocks for the shop! The first few stocks are my new items! Gorgeous bobby pins! Here's some sneak peek of my new blogshop & the bobby pins:
Do drop by & checkout my new blogshop =). I'll be doing some minor adjustment on the blog from time to time & also I'll be adding more items (Oohanas, Orkids etc) soon, so do keep an eye on MFK shop for MFK ready made!
P/S: You can still manage to get the goodies before Raya if you purchase within this week! Payment must cleared by Friday (19/8) to get them. I'll be sending the last delivery before Raya on Friday (19/8) or Saturday (20/8)!
Another experiment for wrap bracelet for my personal use. This time I used some gem stone beads for them. The first time I'm using gem stone beads which was quite expensive material that I've ever bought for only beads! The weaving of the beads to me a lot of time & I need to bead one by one those 4mm beads while weaving on the cord. For 4 wrap bracelet took me nearly 2 days to complete! Really tedious to make except you have the patient. Yeah, I was crazy with these wrap bracelet that's why I do it! LOL. Anyway here's the outcome:
Blue Agate gemstone beads combined with some purple glass beads & metal beads, wrap on blue cotton cord & a flower design button for the fastener.
Black Agate gemstone beads combined with some brown glass beads, silver & gunmetal metal beads, wrap on black cotton cord & a vintage flower design button as the fastener.
This one is wrap with white Howlite gemstone beads on a black cotton cord & plastic resin button for the fastener. Just love the natural black cracks on the beads.
This is how they look like when I wear them!
Just love them that I wear each of them alternately to work! =P
What do you think? =)
