Mom’s Old Serger January 21, 2010

I took my mom’s old Belna serger out of storage today. I think this machine is as old as me. I don’t think the brand is around anymore. haha. though old, it’s still a kick-ass machine! πŸ˜€ My mom still uses it now and then, especially if she has to sew my dad’s trousers. Her sewing machine is an antique Singer. It’s mounted on an wooden desk thingy with iron legs with wheels and pedal. But we don’t use the manual leg pedal. My dad powered up the Singer with an electric motor pedal. I should take a picture of the sewing machine too. I’m very lucky my mom has all these toys to fuel my crafting needs. πŸ˜€ hahaha.

look at how worn the machine is (or dirty) πŸ˜› It’s so cool!

Anyway, I think the serger and I are gonna have lots of fun. hehe. πŸ˜€

Fat Bottom Bags! December 20, 2009

I found a wonderful bag pattern while browsing ravelry a while ago. It is the Fat Bottom Bag by Samanta Maragno. But ALAS! Her pattern is all in Portuguese. :(:(:( I couldn’t make this bag initially. Then, just a couple of weeks ago, I was surfing again and realized that Bend Beanies (Annie Bean) had translated her pattern into English! It’s brilliant! So I quickly set to work and made my own fat bottom bag :D:D:D


DJ Domo just had to camwhore with my new bag :p

Then, like the next day after I finished my bag, I realized that my friend Eelaine is going back to Malaysia for good after living and working here for almost 1.5 years. sniff.She saw the photo of the bag I made on facebook and said she loves it! So I decided to make her a fat bottom bag as well! It’s made with TLC :D:D:D


I made the pretty flower from the pattern by Teresa.

And here’s the girl who left loving her new bag πŸ˜€

It’s Monday morning and I’m happy so far. πŸ˜€

I made this Domokun amigurumi for my boyfriend Ryan. He’s a techno dj, so I added earphones to personalize the Domokun for him :D:D I may just make a turntable for this domokun too cuz I found a turntable pattern πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

I told Ryan I have to make a domo for myself soon, otherwise, his Domo will be mine πŸ˜› lol

I’d been away for quite a few weeks. I spent 3 weeks in St Louis. πŸ™‚ being away didn’t mean taking a break from crocheting. πŸ˜›

so far, i’ve completed a pair of fingerless gloves (i finished these on the plane :p), a hat and a small bag. :D:D:D

i forgot to take a pic of the hat i made. Will do so soon. :p

I’ve also learnt how to make basic granny squares.

I’m gonna make this bag (with a shorter strap) with this granny square pattern from Teresa Richardson. πŸ˜€

I’ve completed 3 squares so far. 10 more to go πŸ˜›
