Flower Crochet & Illustration

I love doing crocheting and drawing during my leisure time. I would always interchange doing the two tasks ... ensuring that balanced time is given to the two passions of mine.

In the series of photos that I posted below are my special creations ; a combination of my flower crochet brooches and my simple pen illustrations placed together. Maybe, to give opportunity for the two passions to speak.... and interact with each other in their own special ways...

In the series of flower crochets, I have explored with various colour combinations; each design gives a different look, feel ... and style. The various styles represent the varied range of people's likes, preferences and personalities. Each of the designs are so special... just like any of us!

The series of pen illustrations are some developments taken from my previous sketchbook pages, if you can remember from my earlier posting . I have further develop them onto different papers of different colour and texture. The outcomes gives a different mood and feeling altogether. And I have also added some of my free style hand writing. I love simple cursive hand drawn typography, as it gives a light and casual style... 

... it relaxes and calms our minds after a long day at work.

Fabric Button Brooches - Bird Series

One of the latest arrival at my favourite fabric shop... a very bright and cheerful fabric !! As I have always loved collecting and buying fabrics with lovely prints and colours, therefore, I could not resist buying this fabric range.

I made them into lots of lovely fabric button brooches. The colours and images are just so vibrant and eye-catching... these button brooches are very suitable to be pinned on a blouse or shirt, bag... almost on anything you can think of !!

Flower Crochet Hair Ties

After successfully making a series of flower crochet brooches... I have the desire to do more small projects!! Furthermore, I have received many suggestions from my friends to turn my flower crochets into other hair accessory items.

Therefore, over the weekend, I tried making some into hair ties. By using the small crochet piece, together with a fabric button, I attached them to a hair tie piece.


All these small handmade hair ties turned out just as adorable as earlier my flower crochet brooches...

Flower Crochet Brooches

Two weeks ago, a friend of mine invited me to join an art and craft bazaar at my neighbourhood area. Initially, I felt quite nervous about selling my creations. All the while, all my sewing projects were either for myself and my home! Occasionally, I gave away some to my relatives and friends. I have never really sold any of creations so far... But somehow, I agreed to join in.

And  due to time constraints, I had to do something small and easy to produce. Therefore, I decided to produce my handmade button, fabric and crochet brooches, which I had experimented not long ago...

Since I love... love.. buttons so much! I have chosen "Button Love" as my brand name accompanied by a simple logo design. I also made a simple handmade tag to attach my brooch on it. I am quite satisfied and happy with the final presentation of my simple creation ... and my creations are ready for sale!
