My first felt craft! eh car!! =)

I was looking for something to do during holidays. First I thought about baking, hence I joined the cupcake class 2months ago. However, I forgot that the members in my house are not fans of sweet thang. I baked a chocolate cake last time and I ended up eating it alone. Mak and Abah tak sukeee....

So last week I decided to order Felt Starter Kit from this blog: Love The Buttons. Actually the owner was my school friend and room mate when I was in Form 5. I ordered the things on Friday and got the item on Saturday. Super fast!


Felt Starter Kit for Beginner

I fell in love with felt craft after looking at my senior's craft, Kak Asay. She's doing business too using felt fabric. Check her fb out! Or search for 'Asay Craft' on Fb.

Anyhoo, I didnt have time to start with this new project as I was busy editing mum's slides. Since she's paying. cannot do cincai la..hehe...anyhoo, I started with all the searching for ideas, tutorials since yesterday as I completed mom's on Friday. Only today, in the afternoon I got the chance to start.

I even rearranged the furniture in my room, to make some space for my new work place. muehehehehhehe


The table from my practicum day...my room, a bit messy =.='. This is the aftermatch.ngee

After lunch, I had too many ideas to start from: flowers, owl, love, animals etc that got my mind a bit confused. So I asked B what design should I start first and he suggested, Car. I quickly googled and found many ideas for cute felt car =)

The process was simple but I dont have artistic hands so my template for the car a bit uneven =.='. Not just that, I am an amateur at sewing so I took a long time. But hey, I learned a new technique of stitching, Blanket Stitch!!! Here's the tutorial if you wanna try yourself. Another problem was to mix and match which color. Mixing and matching color is one of the key for cute felt craft. I'm not good with color combination. But I choose something that MIGHT be my wedding theme =p
