Yeayy..Yesterday, I got a birthday present from my beloved sister. Guess what it is? It is a box of 19 skeins of Knitwise yarns! I am so happy!!! The multicolour 8 ply yarns are VERY beautiful and yummy. There are 3 types of yarns: bluebird, cloudy, and candy. I'm loving all of them but those in bluebird tones attract me most. I love the colour so much!
There are lots of projects linger on my minds but I haven't decided on making any yet. I was thinking of making a bag for myself, as I haven't got one. The truth is; I've crocheted more than 40 bags so far, but none is mine:-)
I made a flower brooch yesterday. It's about 3.5' wide. I would call it a half flower amigurumi, because only the pistil was stuffed but the petals wasn't.
The owner of crocheted flower brooch a.k.a my superb model:-)
Kak Siti has ordered a total of 6 bags from me so far (click here and here to see her previous bags). That's a lot! Thank you kak Siti. Thank you for your appreciation. I am very very happy to know that my handmade bags are loved by others. Therefore, I've made a small bag in green shades especially for her. I hope Kak Siti will like it~

Earlier this year, I made a bow ribbon to attach to a bag, but later decided not to use it. The bow ribbon was kept in a box until my sister asked for it today. She said that she wants to replace the brooch she normally use with the ribbon. I dare her to do so:-) (me myself would never wear a big bow ribbon especially on the side of my head!)
I thought she was kidding me, but she didn't! She went to a hospital for a medical check up with the ribbon attached to her head, happily. The doctor was surprised with her appearance. 'wahhh new fashion ? cantik aaa...you want to be a designer, don't you? ' (^_^)
my sister said that she would definitely wear the bow ribbon again and she even asked me to crochet a huge butterfly for the same purpose - head accessories! I'd love to make one for her (and for myself too!)
These jerseys are requested by Syahizatul from UM. I've posted them yesterday and alhamdulillah, she has received them today! I'm very very happy when she told me that she likes them:-)
look at this ceramic plate set. I think it is very beautiful and unique. don't you think so? someone gave the set to my mom as a mean of souvenir from Turkey. My mom likes the set very much. She even put some of my crocheted items onto the plates and snap the picture for me so that I could share the picture with others in my blog~
Alhamdulillah, Ajra's order is finished. It's a striped sling bag that emphasize more on purple colour. This bag is a present for her sister who did well in her SPM before. Congratulation Ajra's sister!
let's have a look on close up pictures...
The drawstring bag was made up of 4 yarn colours: cream, grey, pink and purple. Its size is about the same with tote bag, but a lil bit wider. There are flowers and bee for decoration.
This bag is requested by Asyikin. She had asked for 3 themes: 'It's not gonna rain today', 'happy butterfly day', and 'love is in the air' plus lady bug and butterfly appliques. Ashikin had given me the authority to do whatever I think is best. Knowing that it would be awkward if I simply put all the themes together, I decided to alter the theme a bit by reducing the number of mini clothes (normally, I put 4), and assemble the crochet appliques differently on her tote bag.
I'll post the bag tomorrow and I hope she'll like her new bag.
