Let's play some music!

Hey, hey ... here's a quick post. I just want to show you my weekend project.  I promised my son that I would make him a pillow too. Since he's no longer a little boy anymore so I thought a felt guitar pillow would be fit for him. Though it's not perfect, (my children said that the stick looked like elephant nose) but I'm glad he still likes it. Thank you, son! So, here's my other little project.

I guess I have to fix my pattern for this guitar.

I just finished my Monday project. It's a kokeshi but I still can't decide whether it's a doll, pillow or bolster. :P I made it based on my own pattern but turned out there is a slight mistake on the pattern. I'm not quite satisfied with its face. Maybe next time better.

You can hug her, you can sleep with her ... or you can just simply hang her on the wall.

And as I write, my two daughters are fighting over her. I'm glad they both like her. LOL.

Happy crafting!

Felt plushies key chain

Just a quick craft that I made for gift exchange activity in my daughter's kindergarten school. The school has the rules that the gift should be under IDR 10000. Well, for under IDR 10000, the option is only pencil, pencil case or key chain. So, instead of just buying random stuff in a gift shop, I made it by myself. I think this felt plushies key chain is also under IDR 10000, right?

Let's Rock 'n Roll!!!

It's Saturday and I have finished my weekend project. Yay! Congratulation to me. It means I can make another weekend project, moreover my new craft supplies are arriving today. What a great timing, isn't it?
Felt Android Doll
on process ...
For this early weekend project, I made a small android doll playing a guitar. It's about 13 cm x 22 cm, made of felt and of course, hand-stitched. Since it's not big, it didn't take a long time for me to finish it. I made this doll for my beloved husband, so he can put it on his office desk and always think about me. I hope that doesn't distract him from his work. LOL.

Well, enough blabbing ... here's the rocker!
I'm gonna rock your weekend, guys!!!!
Have fun and hope you enjoy it.

Happy crafting!!!

"Who is the fairest of them all?"

"Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?"
Guess you all know that line, don't you? Yes, you're right. It's from The 'Snow White" story and by any chance, it's my youngest daughter's favorite Disney princess. She even has a picture of her in Snow White costume. Not to mention, she has watched its movie over and over again. 

So, to keep my promise making pillow for each of my children, I made this felt Snow White pillow for my youngest daughter.

Have a nice dream!

Another Hello Kitty. After I finished making the matryoshka pillow doll project, my daughter begged me non-stop to make her a Hello Kitty pillow. And of course, I love to make it and she loves stuffing it. For this pillow, I used the pattern from her Hello Kitty face bag. It's not too big but it fits on her. Its size is about 40 x 30 cm. Since it was my first time using whip stitch, so it's a bit messy at the edge. But at least it turns out to be not so bad.

Felt Matryoshka Pillow Doll

Yay, it's my weekend project! It's a pillow. It's a doll. It's both so I call it "pillow doll". You can call it anything. It's matryoshka pillow doll. For this pillow doll, I used the pattern from my matryoshka bag but I enlarge it a bit to make it a bit wider.Since I have no sewing machine, I hand to sew it by hand so pardon me if it's a bit messy at the edge.
