Two things that came to my mind when thinking about clowns are their creepy make-up and their frilly oversized costumes, particularly the one with frills around their neck. Continue reading “Frilly Collar”

It’s almost Halloween and although we don’t celebrate it here, we still want to join the festivity online. While it’s true that Halloween is often associated with something scary, there is also something sweet about it (you know what I’m talking about :d). Continue reading “Monster Muffler”

Eating too much instant noodles makes me forget that various types of noodles do exist. When the theme “noodles” was decided, all I could think of is that delicious yellow block. Maybe it’s the braid shape or maybe it’s the love for the seasoning packet that I decided to do this “noodle stitching” on a paper plate (I wanted to use real noodles but then again, I don’t want to waste good noodles).

My baker sister wanted a lazy susan for her icing work and I wanted to make one for her, but sadly, I couldn’t find any store selling the rotating hardware. So here goes my attempt making one, using basic stuff, from scratch. It’s still in a very raw prototype condition as I haven’t had it tested (will update again!). Basically, we will need to make a plate, the rotating leg and a base. And for that, we will need cardboard, foils and the roll, cling wrap and your choice of base (something heavy is good, like old unused dictionary). Continue reading “Easy Lazy Susan”

This week’s theme on the brainy cube has given me the chance to practice my sewing again. We had been thinking of creating a “nap space” in our working room and thought something that doesn’t take much space is preferable. So after a quick search for inspiration, I thought making a soft collapsible Rubik’s cube will work for us. It can be laid as sleeping mattress to sleep on or be treated as floor cushions. Continue reading “Convertible Rubik’s Cushions”

Squishy Stress Ball

When the theme “doki-doki” was announced, I didn’t have the slightest bloody idea of what I wanted to make (just in case you are not familiar with the term, it’s a Japanese mimetic word for “pounding heart”). As cliché as it can be, I was about to jump right into the “heart-shape everything craft” wagon if I couldn’t come up with anything by the deadline. Then out of the blue, I remembered my mom was looking for a squishy ball for her fingers therapy and yeap, I accidentally found the connecting dots between a squishy stress ball and a relief to the irregular heart-pounding caused by nervousness or anxiety. Let’s get started!

Of all wearable accessories, I can say that I wear necklaces the most (after wristwatch). Necklaces have been part of me for almost everyday for the past 10 years (and most probably will not leave me anytime soon). I’ve stored them in box-cases all this while and had not thought about properly displaying or organizing them. But as the number increases each year, I think it’s time to do something about them.

Paper cup is becoming one of the best materials I like to craft with. After the universal ruler holder, today I’m sharing how to turn your beverage paper cup into a kaleidoscope. This is purely an experimental craft as I was just curious to try out using compact discs as reflectors instead of the conventional mirror for a kaleidoscope. Let’s go!

I don’t know if this is considered as cheating because in a glance, you may not be able to tell where the ‘ice cream’ theme comes in. Well, it’s actually a signboard that takes the shape of an upside down ice cream bar (I know, it looks more like a chopping board or a pizza pan). Anyway, I cheated my way down and made this sign to hang on our wall. Continue reading “Ice Bar Signboard”

Woven Rice Bag

We had this rather sexist mindset when we were young that every morning, a father is expected to go to the office to work while a mother is expected to go to the wet market to buy groceries for the family. For our ‘morning’ theme, I was imagining a grocery bag made out of the rice plastic bag. Rice is our staple food and you can imagine how many bags we have accumulated over the years. We have been reusing the bags for many things; from garbage bags, weight bags to tree planting. Thinking that nobody (okay, may be not everybody) wants to go shopping literally holding a rice bag, I decided to do some weaving to sort of use it as camouflage (doesn’t work out as I imagined it could be, though). Anyway, let’s keep going! Continue reading “Woven Rice Bag”
