Fat Owl

After my first attempt at making owls, I saw some cute little owls at a shop and at my friend's house..... so it was time for mini owls!!  They were quick to sew on the sewing machine, but the hand sewing portion was finger-cramping.  The felt pieces for the eyes and beak were so small.... but they looked so cute and chubby =)  This little red fellow is available at my Etsy shop.

Happy Girl Bag

This made me smile =) Simple design that brings out the inner child again.  This talented mum cooks, sews, blogs and looks after kids -- Super Mum!

Craft It Forward!

Recently found out that my friend has a green blog (Green Issues) and that she was participating in crafting it forward:

"I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They in turn must post this statement and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their blog post."

"The only other rules are that (i) it must be handmade by you and, (ii) it must be sent to your 5 people sometime within 2011."

Thought it was pretty cool!  Reminded me of the movie Pay It Forward and really like the idea that there are people who just want to spread the word about crafting.  So here I am, I'm now part of crafting it forward =)  So, if you are interested in further spreading the word of crafting, please leave a message and let me have your name and email so that I can get more details to send my little craft to you.  (Drop me an email at nueyerdua{at}

Such adorable blue dolphins with a sunny yellow background!  Got this cute fabric from Ang Mo Kio Central to make a passport cover for my son, but project passport covers for the whole was abandoned due  to 2 failed attempts and the realisation that light fabric was not suitable to protect passports from moisture (or anything else).

Seeing that my son's bolster only came with 1 bolster case, and the previous one that I made was plain and dull (black & white), I decided to make another bolster case and hopefully a matching pillow case. Alas..... there was insufficient fabric to make both.  Oh well, at least my son likes the cheery bolster =)
