The Dolls Story

I made all these dolls out of curiosity. Saw the pattern in the Japanese book and decided to make one for my DH's cousins DD. I used casement fabric. It turned out quite cute..don't you think? I hope the little Z likes it...(off the record: according to her mom, she's a bit tomboyish out going little girl who speaks multi lingual - Hindi, English & Assamese...well yes, she's definitely adorable^_^ ) 

Catty...the Japanese ..^_^

And these matroyshka dolls I made based on Tutorial by's Ali from SnipSnapHappy
Instead of using Felt I'm using fabric. It's a bit tricky when doing the face part but it gets easier later..believe me. As you can see, the red ones the raw edges are obvious and the pink one it's smoother. I used buttonhole stitch in the pink one and I put fusible web to make it stiffer and to avoid fraying.

Now they belong to one Amercian girl who came to visit us on Eid :)

I will surely make again. Now my sons want one dinosaurs doll which they see in my new books. Will blog about the books later...^_^

Cheers and Happy Crafting

Give me some sunshine

"Give me some sunshine
Give me some rains
Give me another chance 
I wanna grow up once again"
(Can't stop  humming this song from Amir Khan's 3 Idiots....)

This what I completed yesterday. I used smaller size hexies (1") and did the simple butterfly embroidery there. This one is so cheerful with lime green and yellow combination. Inside I put white cotton with pastel color polka dots. yeah..It's yummy pouch..:D
(detail pictures are in my FLICKR)

I still wanna do a few more small patchwork/hexies project but I got some packing to do....wohoooo...I'm going to my home country for holiday...Yay!!..

OK, time to do a serious packing now...I hope I made enough for my friends back home...^^

have a great crafty weekend everyone...


My first Hexies

It's just a quick update. These last few days I've been sort of 'addicted' to making hexagons. I spent a loong time browsing & blogwalking and admiring all the lovelies hexies on the net. Finally I found one this this tutorial by GOLDILOKS.See, I did the 'tacking' at each corner of the folds and it saves me sometime to do the thread cutting..:D.

So far here's what I have made...I don't know yet what to make out of these...LOL. But I'm glad I didn't throw away all those fabric scraps.

and here's my first hexies pouch. I'm so in love with nanikist in flickr, how she combined the polkadots and she  inspired me to make this pouch. I put side pocket inside to keep the cards and cash. The pouch is padded with thin pellon and the lining is interfaced for sturdiness.
