for little ones..

It's been a while since I last crocheted baby sets. The pattern went missing and the size of hook was forgotten. While I was about on the edge of giving up, I told myself that I can do it! I believe that I can!

and yes, alhamdulillah, finally these two sets are finished! 

two sets of crocheted baby hats, mittens, and booties

I hope you'll like them:-)

special request bag

this small bag is a request from my mom. She wants to gift it to her dear friend at school. It is simple and cute~ I hope my mom's friend would like the bag

It's funny though. I've been wanting to make a bag for my mom since forever but she always ask me to focus on my business first. She said that I could make one for her later. Now that her friend got this bag, I asked her, 'mak tak jeles ke...mak pun tak ada beg macam ni?' (don't you envy your friend? You yourself haven't got any bag like this)

guess what was her answer?

'mak nak jugak, tapi nanti-nanti lah.....'
(I want one too, but not now....)


I don't have much times left to crochet. I hope in this 2 months times, I would be able to make bags for my mom and not to forget a bag for my dear model too!

cute small clothes

small clothes fever!

colours of rangoli~

i'm having fun making all these!

I never thought that so many people had fallen in love with these small clothes. While there are some who asked for specific colours and design, most of them had faith in me and let me choose the best for them. That's no big deal, but it means a lot to me.

Thank you!

more bags!

These are bags that I made recently. have a look~

A very special bag

The owner had requested for a bag with the names of her family members. Isn't it so sweet? I'm sure she loves her family so much that she wants to see their names everyday. At first, she wants me to put the names in heart shapes, one each, but I know that would be very difficult. So, I told her that I won't be able to make the bag for her...

However, she said that she didn't mind if I alter the design she has made. So, I choose to make the one above, which is not easy though. There are lots of calculations needed and it took me days to finish the name part. At last, I managed to finish the bag, Alhamdulillah...:-)

colours are chosen by me. A sweet person like her deserves sweet colours too~

Red+black tote bag

These two bags are requested by two friends. They choose the colours themselves and let me decide the design. I hope they wouldn't compare the bags as both designs are different to each other.

My mom plays a major role in helping me assembling the flowers. What do you think of her touch? I couldn't think of any except for 'awesomeness'!

Thanks for reading, and happy crafting~

Calling for Nurin/Nurin's family/Nurin's friend.....

Last month, I made this pencil case for Nurin, but she said that it is too long (12 inch). knowing that it's all my fault, I agreed to make a new one for her (10 inch). Alhamdulillah, she has received her pencil case recently and she told me that she likes it.

Sadly, I didn't manage to take a picture of it since I was too hurried to catch Pos Laju service that close at 3.30 pm...the new pencil case is about the same with this one except for the choice of colours and measurement.

So, I would like to sell this long pencil case to anyone who is interested for RM 20.00. Postage is free! simply drop a comment or just email me at [] for more info.

a little bit ethnic~

This is my newly finished bag a.k.a tapestry crochet bag in black and white~

the zigzag looks like an abnormal electrocardiogram wave :-)

This is the back view

At first, I planned to put some flowers and leaves on the bag, but my mom advised me not to. She said that the bag is just nice, and any addition of flowers could eliminate the ethnic look of the bag. I couldn't agree more..

I lined the bag with a not-so-ethnic fabric:-)

Just in case you were wondering how big the bag is, it's about the same size with my tote bag, but a lil bit wider.

Thanks for reading~

baby hat and scarf

A friend had asked me to crochet 2 earflap hats for newborn. The hats are very simple as didn't put any flowers on them. They are suitable for boys and girls. Have a look~

Both hats are similar in size.

She also asked for a scarf, but didn't specify on the pattern that she wants. So, I made a wave scarf in candy yarns for her. I found the pattern while browsing ravelry. The written pattern of the scarf could be found here.

Its length is approximately 66 inch.

Thanks a lot to my dear model, who agreed to put on the scarf eventhough it was too hot outside!

Teddy for Putri:-)

Yeayyy..teddy for Putri is finished!

I thought the idea of crocheting a huge teddy bear would remain in my dreams, but I was wrong. Today, I am so proud of myself for being able to make one of a kind teddy for Putri!

Putri is the daughter of my aunt's colleague, aged 13. Her mother has seen the bear keychains I've made before and was interested with the larger version of that bear. She asked if I could make one for her beloved daughter, and without hesitation, I answered 'surely yes, I can'

back and front view

Putri's teddy is about 20 times larger than the one I've made before. The pattern is truly mine, and I believe that there are more rooms for improvement.

(everyone in the family began asking for one! I want one for myself too!!! who could resist a personalised teddy, anyway?)
