Random Patchwork

This is a simple, standard patchwork piece - a table runner... 
I have used random fabric pieces to make this patchwork. 
Using all the fabrics that I could find in my collection. 

Every single square is different; 
not one fabric is repeated on this patchwork piece. 
There are a total of 68 squares, and the fabrics 
are wide ranging colours and prints!! No specific theme applied...

I LOVE FABRICS... so it is my gift to myself!!

I will be away for a short vacation this weekend
... and on the look out for inspiration and resources for 
my future projects! 

Till then, do have a great weekend too :)

Strawberry Shortcake Blocks

If you do remember my 'work in progress' project 
- Strawberry Patchwork... 
I would like to proudly say that finally all my blocks are completed! 

Every single block is pieced together by hand. 
There are a total of 77 blocks, consisting of 6 different designs. 
Each block; measuring 5 inches by 5 inches.

So, my next task is to join the blocks together into a quilt cover... 
hopefully it can be completed before Christmas!

Fun with Fabric Scraps

Fabric scraps from my previous projects... 
though some are very small in size, 
they are all just too beautiful to be thrown away. 
So, I decided to have some fun with the scraps!
Yes, a patchwork piece.. 
and this is specially handmade for Pipit Zakka Store. 
It is to express my appreciation and thanks...

And to those who have purchased my handmade creations, 
many thanks for your support!

I will be back again at Pipit Zakka Store with new handmade items,
hopefully at the second quarter of next year...
untill then, do continue to drop by at my blog.

Recycled Craft - Detergent Bottle

A liquid detergent bottle,
creatively transformed into a beautiful flower pot. 

I have specially chosen this detergent bottle 
because of its shape, form and colour.
I have carefully cut one third of the bottom part of the bottle.
Turning the bottle upside down; 
the handle of the bottle resembles an elephant trunk...

 Therefore, I have decided to make a feminine looking elephant!
I have neatly pierce small holes for my crochet hook to go through.
Using a bright yellow yarn, I have added two beautiful crocheted ears, with a green flower earrings on each sides, a flower dangling on the front ...and a tail at the rear.

I have creatively turned an ordinary object into 
an interesting craft piece... 
My crafter friends, hope you like it and give it a try!

Happy 'green' crafting!!!
