So.. in order not to loose or slip of this ceramic-like finger presser, I tied the pincussion onto it like a keychain. Easier to "iron" & prick the pin... Easy way to get organised..
See.. I made more of the pincussions.. for my friends.. I know they would envy my pincussion.. So I decided to make a few for them as well.. and share the joy in sewing! Anyone interested? But in one condition.. you have to be my friend ..ehhehe..
A bit messy.. but what the heck.. as long as it can holds pins..
Cute eh? I love it too. I used felt material as well.. all hand-sewn.

Very good workshop although we do not have enough time to complete our task..
I'm proud of my EPAL!
My first gold yarn embroidered sewn the word "Epal" on a piece of white cloth.
THis is my buddies - Neneth (newly member) & Aween.
Neneth busy with her Tulip Cushion project.
A bit plain.. (lack of ideas.. sleepy already. I'll do better next time). The soccer ball was embroidered with applique technique... Need to practice more of my machine embroidery..

My hands was a bit shakey when sewing this embroidery on the cardigan. Its not the same as sewing on the normal cotton fabric. This one needs extra gentle & patience .
The cardie is not mine... I wonder when I can make one for myself..
Tweety Mutley ordered this red cardie for her beloved mother for her birthday.
Pre-Happy Birthday auntie!
Very suitable as a gift. The owner requests for a diaper stacker to match the booties..

A pre-gift for Baby J.. will be out of mummy's belly soon!
I'll call her baby "Jane"... since the family is all starting from letter J..
I remember a malay (Kedah version) of a riddle joke.. All starting from the letter "J"
Japaq (Jaafar) jalan-jalan,
Japaq jumpa Jah,
Jah jolok jambu,
Japaq jolok juboq jah.. (hahaha.. sensored word)
Jah jerit -- "Jangan jolok-jolok"
Japaq jeling je...

I made one cardigan for Tweety Mutley.. hmm.. I cant remember when I started it.. sometime end of June. The cardie was actually completed last week, but the finishing part was a bit time consuming - especially darning the yarns & the embroidery..
So here's the 98% of the cardigan I've made.. Need to complete the embroidery part. I made 2 daisies so far at the front.. I hope I can finish it tonight..
Look at the chain stitch I made using the crochet hook.. saves time.. But I have to be more careful on straight lines.. too many glitches here and there.. hehehe..

Aween concerntrating with her work..
More practice.... please.
This is my hands.. holding my 1st totebag.. that I got from Shiela (my machine seller & introducer). Cute bag indeed.. I finished it in 1 day.. But only the tote bag..Actually it comes with a makeup bag and one tiny purse. That one.. still not done yet.. I think I can make 'em as my homework.. should be easy.. as the instrution on the paper guide is very easy to understand.
This is the finished product.. but mind the crumpled fabric.. I should iron it before taking a pic. But I was too excited.. i just quicky snap a shot without making the final touch-up..
Can't imagine how happy I was looking at my first totebag..
All this while I have been sewing things.. but none for my own self..
Aawwhh.. this one is the cutest! The lil darling Ying Ying, although she was not lined up to be with the flower girls troop, cos she's only 2yrs old.. But she also wears the same dress I made... So cute, isn't she??
