Sling Bag For Myself

Found this material at Nagoya. It just caught my eye and from that instant I knew this was going to be turned into a bag.

Anyway, I am please with the outcome. I combined the fabric with a plain red material for the flap. I decorated the flap with some felt flowers. I must say this is so far the best bag I made.

Save Our Turtles Shopping Bag

For a long time I wanted to make my own shopping bag but never got to it. So finally after months of procastinating I managed to make my own bag with an environment message " SAVE OUR TURTLES". It is a cause dear to my heart as I am a diver who enjoys watching these creatures in their own underwater realm.

Note: I think I made the hatching turtle too small :(

The illustration was made with Pentel Arts Fabric Fun Pastel Dye Sticks (see below) which I bought a few months ago at ArtFriend (a really superb arts and craft store). It is simple to use and is not permanent till the images are fixed with a hot iron.

So another overdued project completed. Now I am thinking of making more shopping bags and having fun creating the illustrations and messages. (Btw, this current message was lifted off MNS :)

Scrunchies and More Hair Ties

I have pretty swamped with work lately and had no time to blog nor make my hairbands. However, had to make these as my friends i.e Mariam and Chew Ping been requesting them since eons ago. Took my time as I was searching for a good quality hairband (the previous ones I used became loose quite fast:( )

My project for raya is decorating my cookie jars - this was a last year project and has not been completed yet. Hopefully by Raya I will have something to show :)
