Last week, i looked for felt craft blog and i found one interesting site..on seeing at the map, the location of felt craft workshop is just an hour drive from my house.So,on saturday i went to the place and i bought some felt materials,punch equipment,packets of beautiful colourful buttons and also some synthetic wool to be used in making the craft.Without wasting my time,that night, i made one love-shape brooch and decorate it with cute buttons. i used pink and purple felt..and of course it is so easy..i think i want to do more items like pouch,wristlet small purse, bookmark and a lot more.and another information is that it is owned by a young lady.The colour of her workshop is purple.

Pincushion is a small cushion to poke your pins when you sew.Before this i never imagine that pincushions also can be made so creative and cute. I came across one book about how to make it and decorate with different motives such as fruits,ice-cream cone,cup-cakes and many other fantastic shapes.WE can improve it using embroidery,ribbons,lace and even colourful beads!Also we can use crochet,cross-stitch,patchwork or even quilting. If you want to explore more about it ,just surf the internet by typing the keyword 'PINCUSHIONS'..sure you will get the idea.You can do and give it to your friends who like to sew..you can give me too!

I like to go to bookstores and it is quite dangerous if I ever go with my kids (especially boy). He is so jealous and often show bored face whenever at the shop..as for me I can spend hours browsing books especially on the topic of internet marketing, crochet, craft or any on handmade products. Last 2 months, I came across a book entitled 'HAND MADE'..and is an interesting book with all the wonderful designs/patterns of making bags and other crafty items. I am not sure whether the book is in Chinese writing, Korea or Japanese.. of course i only look at the pattern and not at the written characters.I can find it at Popular Bookstore at KB Mall. Starting from that day, i never miss to buy it for my collection and useful reference.
