Christmas tree key chain

Christmas tree! Cute mah? It's a key chain. My colleague said a bit big as a key chain and it's look like a candy ice-cream =.= Hey. Don't eat it! Save your stomach for annual dinner. Lol. Everything can buy in Centre Point. Yarns and key chain can buy at Meelo, while those small and colorful things sew on the christmas tree can buy at Daiso Japan. (`・ω・´)

Arigurumi - Bear Bear

Amigurumi (編みぐるみ, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture. (Resources from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amigurumi)

This is my first time to crochet a small toy. It's really fun and sense of accomplishment after finish it. I will try to do others doll after this experience.            ლ(❛◡❛ლ) Let's look at my toy and leave comments. ^ ^

Purple bear~*

Kekeke.... puuuuurple bear! It's very small, can be a key chain hang it on somewhere. Bear look very cold hor, should do some shirt to let it wear. Lol. I reverse it after I crochet, so the pattern looks a bit of difference with other crochet i have done.     
 (๑′ᴗ‵๑)    

Back side of bear
That's how the back side of the bear. The scarf hanging on bear neck is a furry yarn which can be buy at Daiso Japan. Sure is RM 5. =.= Those kind of yarn suitable to do hairband. For those who lazy to crochet nicely, also can use this kind of yarn, it's suitable for messy crochet, because it is furry, can't see the crochet pattern. You know what I mean.
꒰˘̩̩̩⌣˘̩̩̩๑꒱


Zoom Zoom Zoom!
From closer look on the bear, can see that those eyes is using thread sew on it. Yup, also the bear bear nose and mouth. Just simply sew it, you can change the expression of the bear eyes to "> < ". Sure very cute. Hahaha.....(>ω<)

Pattern created by: Sue
This bear pattern are not created by me. I learn it from other blogger, Sue. Here's the link:
http://sue-mindnsoul.blogspot.com/2011/09/bear-with-balloon.html
My bear is a bit quite difference with her bear. I change it. Hope you all still like my bear after see her blog. ꒰ਊ◞‸◟ਊ|||꒱

Hello Kitty Meow Hat ^ ^

Hmm... Is it possible Sabah have four seasons? Awhhh... That would be great if that happen. Then, now is winter season! Wahhh..... I like snow~* Kyaah... Snow melting on my hands! Snowball! Skating! Wooo~~ Lol. (◍•ᴗ•◍)

Very looooooong didn't write blog already. Sorry nia... Haha. Few weeks ago shopping with my colleague at Daiso Japan again. Then we noticed that there is a crochet book! Here, take a look! (๑´⍢`๑)

Daiso Japan Crochet Knit Book 1

Can buy it at Daiso Japan oh! Centre Point branch there, I dunno whether Daiso Japan have other branch or not. ;p I only noticed 2 books for crochet. This one I show is Book 1. Very nice and good looking book right? Hehe... There's few pages teaching basic crochet, but in Japanese words. Haiz... Still got some chinese words inside de, but I think see those pictures then also can know abit. RM 5 (๑°⌓°๑)!

Inside the book have teach how to do beanie hat! Sorry, I didn't picture that pages. Here is my beanie hat.~♥

Hello Kitty beanie hat

Hehe.... Cute mah? It's Hello Kitty hat! Look weird? Yea, my colleague said add a ribbon would be look more like Hello Kitty. But I tooooooo lazy to add it. Hmmm... I should make 2 ears on top also. Next year bah! >.< Don't scold me behind! The color of yarn very unique rite? Hehe... There is some chocolate and black dots on the yarns, looks like very dirty. Haha, special yarn rite? Sure lah, price also very special. RM 9.50 per roll. =.= I'm broke already... Can buy it at Meelo, also at Centre Point. (☍﹏⁰)


Side view of Hello Kitty hat

Hello Kitty beards! I'm used single crochet to make those beards on the surface of hat, unlike other parts of Hello Kitty, nose and eyes, which is sew on the hat. If look more closer on the hat, then will notice that I changed the yarn to white yarn for 2 rows 2 times. ('◕ェ ◕' )

Ear flaps of Hello Kitty hat

It's kitty ear flaps! My kitty ear flaps a bit difference with the book. I changed it. Then that long hat beards is using single crochet with 3 yarns together so that it would be look more bigger. I dunno whether that hat beards important or not, because in my country no need wear these kind of hat. We don't have winter! Sob sob.... But I know the ear flaps important, to protect the wind blows on ears and keep ears warms rite? Please correct me if I'm wrong. 


Leader!

Very mini mini leh. Haha. Cute mah? Those purple-red-white buttons can buy it at Daiso Japan, there have many choices, very hard to choose, all are very pretty, buy all? Out of my budget! While those rings, can buy at Meelo, quite cheap (I think?), RM 1.00 can buy few of it, depends on the size of ring.(o^ ^o)


Bottom of mini coin pouch

What these? Lol. Those mini coin pouch bottom lor. Yup. Firstly, do a few single crochet then connect it with a single crochet, it will become a circle, then start to crochet it with a half double crochet.

Back side of mini coin pouch

Back side of the pouch! From the left to the right, a rainbow colors pouch, a very berry strawberry pouch, and a multi colors yarn pouch. Which one you prefer? *☆*☆*☆

No owner cup

This is yours....Minnie Mouse cup! Haha... It's a free gift item from Darlie toothpaste (Don't know which year free gift). Actually this cup have 3 owners before. First, my ex-colleague > Second, me (Before I buy my own pink flower cup) > Third, Mabelbaobao (Few days ago she buy her own cup at Tokutoku). Now Minnie don't have owner already. So, who's the next to be her owner? LOL (*/▽\*)

Anyone notice that? Kekeke... Those 2 cups is on the coaster! Pretty? Nice? Owhh... Can't see clearly rite? Let's take a look. (≧ω≦)


Soft colors coaster

This coaster I used 3 (or 4) soft colors yarn to crochet it. For those who have seen my small crochet bag post, then you will know what I mean. I only used one yarn but have  3 (or 4) colors to complete it. Here's my small crochet bag link: http://yeeyeeinthehouse.blogspot.com/2011/09/small-crochet-bag.html ㅇㅅㅇ

Colorful coaster

Wow.... Colorful leh! Yup, another rainbow colors handmade I have made. The patterns is unique compare to my others crochet handmade rite? It's called puff stitch. Puffy puffy? I learn this pattern from Youtube video uploader, tjw 1963. I really like her video tutorial, because she have upload left-handed crochet version! I remember that when I just started to learn crochet skills, I have a problem with those crochet tutorial books. Why? Because I'm left-handed! So I learn more slower than other people >.< Thanks to Teresa, I learn more easier than others from her. Here's the link for "Art of Crochet by Teresa - Baby Puff Stitch Crochet Hat" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGddPdhpMrE ~ ^________^)





That's how those coasters whole look. Which one you like the most? o(⌒˛⌒ )o

Ruffled Wrist Warmers

Hello, October. See ya, September. In some country, weather already start to turn cold. Snowy! Yahooo~ (Myself imagine) Haiz, sad in Malaysia don't have four seasons, but these few days Sabah weather a bit weird, sometimes will have heavy rain and even strong wind too. Everyone must take care oh! Don't get blow away by winds ^ ^

Last week I saw a Youtube video tutorial for crochet wrist warmers. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rN5cH4h28N4
After try to do these wrist warmers, really improve my crochet skills. Actually, a simple single crochet combine with double crochet can do many different handwork. Let's show you all how my wrist warmers looks after watch the video.  


Rainbow wrist warmer

Tada! It's rainbow wrist warmer~ Haha....  Ok mah? It's a bit different if compare with the video tutorial, I change some patterns. Any comments on my handwork? Please leave any comments on this post below or just write on my right side of chat blog. (@⌒ー⌒@)ノ  I'm accept any comments.


After wear it...

Lol. It's Mabelbaobao hand!. ㅋㅋㅋ Actually she is not really typing, she's acting~ Bleh. ♪ Those seven rainbow colors are using double crochet, while the black color which is near red color are single crochet. To make it larger (at blue color there) just add more double crochet then it will become larger (depends on size of hand). While other side black color, it's combination of double crochet and single crochet. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ


Double crochet pattern

Let's zoom in to look more clearly how double crochet look like. Double crochet more longer than single crochet, so sometimes if my lazZzy bugs come, I will do double crochet to complete my handwork, because more faster to complete it. Lol. Anyone also like that too? But double crochet will more loose than single crochet. If pull it, there's a large gap between each crochet. (⌒▽⌒)


So for those who always feel cold, can try to do it! But I think everyone sure will wear sweater better. (⌒-⌒; ) Okay! That's all I want to show you all today! Thanks again to Mabelbaobao, now I know how to let those picture not blur if I larger it. Bye bye ~ See you! < (*.*<)

This post will show my colleague, also my blog photographer (Mabelbaobao) DIY. ^ ^ Since Mabelbaobao so lazZzZzy to write a post, so I will "help" her. I'm very nice leh! Kekeke. Now you know...Well, last week she bought Naruko facial skin care products. Then we notice that (Thanks to Irene, if she didn't inform Mabelbaobao, I think she won't know it.) Naruko products box actually can do something. What something I mean? Let's take a look! (´Д` )♡

OUTSIDE






Outside of these Naruko facial skin care product boxes look like just a simple boxes. Inside those boxes are the most important parts. Do some advertise, Mabelbaobao said that this brand nice and moisture after used it. In Taiwan show, "女人我最大" also recommend this brands too. For those pretty girl who interested to Naruko brand products, please gently click: http://www.naruko.com.tw/shop/  for more information. ~ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

INSIDE




Inside these boxes are creative and well look picture to DIY pencil box and pencil case. It's nice idea right? Can recycle, fun and useful too ! All you needs to complete it are scissors, stapler/glue, and small knife. All these items can get from your office ^.^! Inside of each box have instructions to teach how do it in step by step. No worries, it's very easy. Even don't understand what it's wrote, look at the picture also know what to do! (ΘωΘ)

Tada! Pretty leh !. You see, really can put things inside. If you all see clearly, below those boxes have a small paper, those are instructions paper what I mention just now. It's really fun and feels good after finish it by yourself. Everyone can do it if you really want to do it !~o(^-^)o


Please go Green with me!
Lastly, please Go Green, Think Green, and Act Green to safe our Earth! We must do it even just a small actions. For example, when go shopping to buy goods, why don't use a recycle bag? Just bring a recycle bag along would not waste a lot of your space in your handbag right? (Forget to bring wor.... ㅠㅠ")Hmm... Then just make a habit to think that recycle bag are as important as your wallet. You would not forget to bring your wallet go shopping right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ GoGoGo!~*

Fancy pouch

Hello~* This time I will show my handmade which is made from felt. For more information about felt, please Google search! ♥  


Daiso Japan Felt Kit Fancy Pouch


Due to my sewing skills very poor, so I went to Daiso Japan buy a felt kit to try my sewing skill until which level. Well, everyone know that, Daiso Japan goods all sold RM 5. ^ ^ After open it, I found out that the felt quality very nice. Its soft and also same color as the picture. I'm sure will try to buy another type of felt kit at Daiso Japan.      ( ´ ▽ ` )


My Fancy Pouch

Jang! This is my own fancy pouch. How is it? Hehe... Nice? Inside the felt kit have provide felts, embroidery threads, buttons, and lace. While items which need to provide by self are scissors and needle. Same as the cover picture right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


Inside the Pouch

This is how it looks inside the pouch. A bunch of thanks to my colleague, Mabelbaobao (Bow*) who picture my pouch so pretty. She really put a lot of afford to picture it, even put some items inside the pouch to make it look more nice.  (Thumbs up*)           d( ̄  ̄)


Makeup kit Pouch

Lol. Those makeup kits is not mine. I only use lip balm to prevent my lips dry until bleed, that really pain. Okay! Back to pouch, actually this pouch is used to put makeup kit (wrote on the felt kit cover), but I'm not going to put it. Hmm.... maybe use it to put tissues? @_@

Love is on the Air~*

Actually those love shape felts is my own creation. Because after finish the pouch, inside looks very plain. So my itchy hand sew some love on it. No need to draw the love shape line on the felt, just simply cut those love shape out from felt and sew it.


Backside of the Pouch

Let's look at the backside. It's surrounded by 2 laces. Those laces provided quality nice also, its really suitable to the pouch. Did you see that? I even sew my name inside the pouch. Hahahah... It's on the right of the blue love... "Yee" =.="


Blanket Stitch

Did you notice my pouch side? It's a blanket stitch. Above the picture is the paper which teach you how to do the blanket stitch, backside of the page have English version. This is the part which waste most of my time to do it. I tried many times but still can't get the same stitch as the cover picture. Fortunately, I found out that Youtube have kind uploader who upload how to sew blanket stitch. 
Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXkSE2TTF4s
Let's try it! ⊙▽⊙



Lastly, thank you for those who come to visit my house. Sorry the picture is so small, it will blur if I larger it. This is my first time to write blog, so please be kind if anything are wrong. Please leave any comments on my "It's Tea Time Chat", I will try improve it next time. Let's try our best! Fighting~*
Thanks
