Craft Tutorial: Glitter Heart Shoe Clips

Heart Shoe Clip 21

Happy March everyone! Today I have a fun and messy project for you. I have been a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood for the past 15 years (wow, didn’t realise it’s been that long since then…), and ever since I saw their ‘Lady Dragon Shoes’ collection I’ve been in love with them. Read More

Craft Tutorial: Pearl Stacking Rings

Pearl Stacking Rings

Hello lovelies, did you enjoy the leap-year day? I have a fun tutorial for the special day, and it’s about everything I love; pearls, simple and delicate rings, quick and easy crafts. I love fresh water pearls and can’t get enough of them, but if you are not so much of a fan, you can replace the pearls to any beads you like, of course :) Read More

Craft Tutorial: Make Pom Poms with a Fork

Pom Pom top

How do you make pom poms? I usually use pom pom makers by Clover; the size goes from 20mm (pretty small) up to 85mm (pretty big), and I cannot make patterned pom poms without them. But… yes, but, I was making pom poms for my next project, and realised that even the smallest pom pom maker was too big! So, here comes today’s tutorial :) Read More

Anthropologie Inspired Tutorial:
Felted Soap

Felted Soap 4

How’s your Christmas shopping going, lovelies? I am proud to tell you that after brain-melting hours of shopping (on and off the internet), Mr T and I no longer have to suffer; yes, we actually finished Christmas shopping before December even starts!! And we have 5 days to wrap and send them before we head back to Japan :) And before getting my hands on wrapping these pressies, I wanted to make some felted soaps that I saw at Anthropologie’s.

Felt Ball Alphabet Tutorial

Felt Ball Alphabet 4

As I promised you last week, I’m posting another project using felt balls (am I obsessed with felt ball? Hell, yeah!). This time I’m making alphabetical letters; I think these letters would be cute Christmas ornaments or decorations, also perfect for stocking fillers! Read More

Felt Ball Mat Tutorial

Felt Ball Mat 2

Hello lovelies, how is your Christmas presents preparation going? I am, in fact, in a state of panic; Mr T and I are going back to Japan in two weeks for one month (yay!), and we have to get everything done – everything including work, lovely tax calculation, sending out Christmas cards, getting souvenirs and Christmas presents for friends and families… So, while sorting out all the above, I am frantically making some Christmas presents. And today, I made a small mat (or you may call it ‘a rather big coaster’) using felt balls for my mum. Read More

Today I Made: Felted Sweaters

Felted Sweaters top
Have you felted, accidentally or intentionally, your wool sweaters before? I have done it a few times accidentally, quite many years ago, when I washed my sweaters in washing machines. And last week I’ve done it again – this time, to my horror, one of Mr T’s favourite sweaters… It didn’t shrink thatmuch (or so I protested), but it was quite a tight fit; when he stretched his arms above his head, I could see his belly (I insisted that it kind of looked ‘young and fashionable’). Instead of getting upset, though, Mr T simply told me to ‘make something fabulous’ with it :) Read More

Stiffened Fabric Origami Box

Fabric Origami Box 4

I’ve been collecting vintage and antique buttons for a while now, and I was looking for a neat and cute way to organise them. I first thought of making small boxes with craft papers, then this mad (and brilliant, I hope) idea came up – why not make origami boxes out of stiffened fabrics? And oh yes, as I hoped, stiffened fabric worked as fine as origami papers! Read More
