striped sling bag-purple

This is a special order from aunty Zaiton. She wants a bag that looks like Mas's but is purple in colour. As for the decoration, I've crocheted some flowers and assemble them beautifully on her bag:-) have a look!

the photo looks better outside and the real colour of yarns could be shown...

front's name

back again!! oh I'm in love with flowers now~

I lined the bag with purple cotton fabric. I've sewn 2 pockets, 1 with zipper...

I'm glad that aunty likes her bag very much!

coin purse with frame

My coin purse with ball clasp frames are now finished! I've bought the frames about a month ago and had wondered how they're gonna work ever since. The frames are non-sewable and glue adhered type. At first, I was afraid that the glue would leave marks on my crocheted purse but thank God, everything went well. After hours of trial and error, tadaaaaaaaaaaa~

There's a lot more to improve, especially the lining parts. (i lined the purses with cotton fabric)

The coin purses are fat-bottoms and they could keep a lot of coins at a time:-) As you can see, I used felt clothes for the decoration. This is my first experience with felt and I admit that I enjoyed stitching the motifs very much. The felt clothes are actually a giveaway from MJbannister that I won recently. Do pay a visit to her blog here~

other than felt clothes, I got some cute paper clips too!

I gave the red purse to my best buddy and kept the pink one to myself. Since it is very time consuming, I don't think that I can accept orders for framed purse...However, I could replace the frame with zipper if anyone is interested with my crocheted coin purse:-)

*I bought the ball clasp frames from DAISO , The Curve

learn to crochet: what you need

1. You need yarns

owh ya, you don't need so many yarns to begin crocheting (those in the photo are my stock..hehe) Two is enough. You can choose any brands that you want: Nona, Minlon, Ondori, Wina) Personally, I like Nona and Minlon brand because they're widely available in the market:-)

2. You need a crochet hook (jarum kait).

These are my first 4 crochet hooks bought by my mom. The most right is used in most of my crochet project because it is bigger in size compared to the others. Crocheting in long hours can be tiring and painful. So I just wrap the stick with rubber band to ease the old school..hehe

my lovely crochet hook set:-)

Crochet hooks can be found in many store near you. They come in many sizes. The hook size will determine the size of your crochet project. If you don't have the right crochet hook as in the pattern you are referring, you can check the gauge and add more rows or stitches to get the same size.

That's all!!

ok now that you have both yarn and hook, you can begin crocheting now!!!
Please refer to a video I've posted in my previous post to get started...happy crocheting everyone!

learn how to crochet

I never knew about crochet till last year. It happened that I found some crocheted items in the net and was interested to learn crochet in depth. Thanks a lot to the advancement of technology that I am able to learn it through youtube videos. There are many videos posted about learning crochet, but I like this one below the most.. It is very clear and easy to follow.

while browsing the net, I found a site whose author's name is Teresa. She got so many free crochet patterns with videos to assist beginners. .Do pay a visit at her blog here and you'll find many patterns to try with assisting video, including the lefthanded versions. She also has few crochet videos for beginners where she taught the basic of crochet like single crochet, double crochet, and crochet circle.. Below is the link to her videos..

Indeed, crochet is fun! I love it so much and I really want to share it with others who are interested too. hopefully, the links and videos I've mentioned in this post would help those who wish to get started. I wish I can make my own tutorial about learning crochet one day..happy crocheting!

new tote new design ~!!

Yeayy!!! Kak Azfahani's bag is finished:-)She had designed the bag herself but I've modified it a lil bit since it's not easy to find the colours of yarns for which she had asked for (lavender+soft apple green)..Alhamdulillah, She likes the bag very much, so do I~

some photos...

the front view..Kak Azfahani wants a lot of flowers and leaves on her bag, so I've tried my best to arrange them beautifully on her tote..:-)

the back view..i like the design most! I reminds me to 'awan larat', an art that was introduced by my late grandmother when I was a child.. it's classic and simple, yet very pretty!

the inside view..heart keychain as free gift~

The bag will soon meet its owner and I'm glad that its owner loves it!

striped sling bag

done with Mas's bag. It's a large striped bag in pink and white. I was hesitated to combine those colours at first, as both pink and white are soft colours which might contribute to dullness. However, I was wrong! the outcome was so cute and girlish!~ (This proved that customers are always right)

some close up photos...

I've attached pins at the back of ribbon so that the ribbon could be adjusted or removed...
'name' theme

wild flowers..

inside view...2 pockets, 1 with zipper

I hope she'll like her bag!
