Little Girl Key Chain

My Little Projects key chain

Yay, I managed to make this little key chain from my own drawing. At first, I made it for myself but after it's done, my youngest daughter begged me to give it to her. She said the doll was her and she wanted to show it to her friends and tell them that it was her. She even tried to smile like it. What a cute!  And now she asked me to make her a doll like the Black Apple doll that I made but with this face. Just be patient, dear! Mommy will make it for you as soon as mommy has a time.
It's always been a great pleasure if our children like things we made, right?

Happy crafting!

Hand-stitched Hello Kitty key chain

Here is my craft project from last week. It's a Hello Kitty key chain. It's still made of felt, my favorite fabric, and of course, since I still don't have a sewing machine yet, I have to hand-sew this small doll. Its height is about 10 cm, more and less. At first, I thought making a small doll like this would be easy but it turned out to be a bit difficult. It must be done thoroughly and because I never made small project like this, I made few mistakes here and there. Hey, what can I do? I'm just a beginner. :P  I learned the hard way.
However, I'm still happy with it because my daughter still likes it  in spite of the fact that it is not flawless.

My inspiration

I drew this few days ago. It's been a long time since my last drawing. Actually I didn't intend to draw this, it was just pop up in my head. After it's finished, I put it as my twitter profile pic and suddenly my husband asked whether it was our youngest daughter that I drew. I didn't realize it until I looked closely at my daughter's photograph that I just took a day before after I cut her hair short. Here is my daughter's pic.

My beloved daughter.

Do they look alike? I think I see a slight resemblance in them. LOL. Well, she is my inspiration, you know and she will always be.

Updated : Little Poppy

Still remember my Black Apple doll named Poppy? Of course you do. I posted that few hours before this post. Well, now little Poppy got new skirt and shoes. They are handsewn. I did it by myself. And for your information, I've never sewn any skirt before. So that was my first skirt. There's always a first time for anything, right?  I'm very proud of myself because for a beginner, it turns out not really bad at all.

Poppy got a new skirt and red shoes.

Happy stitching!

Black Apple Doll

I've been curious about making this black apple doll since I found its pattern in And I saw many people make one so I said to myself that I should give it a try. I didn't enlarge the pattern though it says "enlarge 150%". I think it's enough for me, it's about 25 cm in height, not too big, not too small either.

By the way, you can call her Little Poppy. :)

Updated : Matryoshka Felt Bag

Since my daughter was a bit not satisfied with the matryoshka's face on her bag, I made a quick fix so it would look like the matryoshka pillow I made.

Do you remember this?
the old one ...

With a little embellishment, now it looks like this.

the new one.

And my daughter loves the new one. Which one you think is better?

Happy crafting!!!
