Keychain Pouch

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 20.27 0 komentar

Long time no touch felt, but yesterday I made this cute keychain pouch for myself from felt. I just playing around at and found tutorial how to make a keychain pouch from felt. I think digu is similar with pinterest, but it is in Chinese (if I am not wrong). I don’t understand Chinese, but since the pictures and tutorials are clear, then its not a matter for me. Hehehe… ^_^
Alright, this is my keychain pouch. The way I make this was adopted from tutorial I found at digu ( I don’t know the real artis or crafter who make the tutorial). But, I make my keychain pouch like I want, with my stuff and taste. I use yellow felt because I love yellow. Then I also use lace and bow (made from felt) to make Lolita looks (yeah, I love Lolita with bows and laces, hehehe). Actually there is a special keychain holder for it, but I don’t have it so I just use keychain rings.

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!!! ^o^
Okay, this is my newest kanzashi flowers, all of them are chrysanthemum, just in different colours. They’re in white, broken white, and coral. The petals of chrysanthemum that I make this time is different with the chrysanthemum I made before, and the size of every petals also bigger, so I just make 3 layers. The leaves also has bigger size but lower in number. Hehehe ^_^

How To Sharpen Dull Scissor

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 01.03 0 komentar

Happy weekend everyone! ^o^
I think old people always have their own ways to do their house chores in the past. Then I curious how old people sharpen their scissor, because I believe they will not throw something easily as trash. I asked my mom and she said that traditional barber usually cut the neck of glass bottle to sharpen their scissor. What? Really? Does it works?
Then I try to cut the neck of glass bottle about more than 5 minutes with my dull scissor. That scissor of mine was dull because I cut fabric, felt, paper, cardboard, tape, even thin wire with it, but I’m too lazy to buy new scissor, hehehe… :p
I didn’t know why (the scientific reason) but it works! My scissor became sharp again. Of course I was happy. If you try this, make sure to cut the glass bottle, not the other. In this picture, there’s something disturb the glass bottle neck, but I try to avoided it when I sharpened my scissor. I hope it works with your scissor too. Hehehe ^_^

Good rainy Friday morning everyone! ^o^
Its really cold and I’m too lazy to take a bath yet. I think I need warm the water (to bath) before my flu become worse. But, before I do that, I will write some blogposts.
This time I make another kanzashi series that I call Red Velvet Kanzashi Series. Actually I don’t make it from velvet, just from soft shirt fabric. I call it red velvet because the colour looks very good (in my taste). This is a request from a costumer. She interested with Coral Kanzashi Series that I make before and wants 2 series, but just coral series that available. So, I make another series for her with her choice colours, deep red and pink.

Gift Wrap with Batik Paper and Kanzashi Flower

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 18.08 0 komentar

What do you think about my gift wrap? Or do you interested what inside? Hehehe… ^_^
Yeah, this is one of doorstoppers in my house and of course the inside is wood, a hard and heavy one called ulin (Ulin Wood). It’s a good quality wood that really really expensive now. If I’m not wrong this ulin that we use as doorstopper is as old as my house, because this piece of wood was leftover when this house built. If you ever read my blogpost about 2 years ago (when I’m still a beginner in craft and blog), I ever made a felt cake that I call cheese cake (if I’m not wrong, I’m too lazy the recheck it). It’s the doorstopper that I remake. I remake it because it got dirty.
I just do simple thing to cover this doorstopper. I use paper gift with batik pattern, gold ribbon, bead, shir fabric to make kanzashi flower, tape, and glue. I choose warm colours because I like it. Hehehe… ^_^

Hello, good Wednesday morning everyone! What a good date today, December 11th 2013 (11-12-13). Hehehe… :p
Alright, I make another kanzashi series again. The name is Sweet and Dark Kanzashi Series. I call it like that because the colours that I use this time are pink, white, black, and gray. I inspirated by Lolita fashion, sweet and gothic Lolita. I love both of it, so when I got black fabric (I already have pink, white, and gray), I decided to make sweet and dark kanzashi, two opposite colours. Hehehe… ^_^

Foxy Apron

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 15.49 0 komentar

Good Saturday morning and happy weekend everyone! ^_^
Today I will write about my newest apron that I made yesterday. Yeah, yesterday and actually it finished just about some hours. Friday morning I cut felt to make the fox and flowers applique. After I take a bath then I handsew the applique. Actually I handsew all of it because I don’t brave enough to sew jeans with sewing machine. I’m afraid the machine will be broken.
Okay, this is the stuff I use. You can see it by yourself. If you read my previous blogpost you will notice that this is the second apron that I made to upcycle jeans. But there are some differences between them. You can see, this is my second jeans apron
And this is my frist one.
I really love the fox. Hehehe… ^_^

Wisteria Kanzashi

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 22.25 0 komentar

Finally I make it! Wisteria of Fuji Blossom Kanzashi. Actually I don’t brave enough to make wisteria or fuji blossom kanzashi because I never see the real flower by my own eyes, so I don’t know the real shape of it. Beside that, I also do not have proper stuff to make that kind of kanzashi. But yesterday, suddenly I depressed. I usually became really brave if I stress or depress. I just take my scissor then cut the fabrics.

Felt Pouches

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 22.23 0 komentar

If you think I’m the one who make these cute felt pouches, then you’re absolutely wrong. Because the one who make these was my mom. Lately she loves make pouches from felt.
One day, she want a very simple pouch that similar to her old pouch that she usually bring to traditional market. Then she told me that she wants to make a felt pouch that the colours similar to my pouch (you can read my blogpost about my strawberry felt pouch). She take broken white and pink felt from my craft storage (because I use broken white and dirty pink on my strawberry pouch), but I told her to change pink with orchid (soft purple). She agree then she design and sew the pouch by herself.
The first felt pouch that she made was very cute. She loves combination between broken white and purple.

Look at my newest felt dolls! Aren’t they cute? Hehehe… ^_^
I call them Cutie and Pouty Jars because I make them in shape of jars with faces. I inspirated by pattern on my pajama (Weird? Yeah, I know). Actually the pattern on my pajama is long jar with smile face and has written ‘Sugar’ on the bottom. So, I decided to make jar felt doll with faces.

Then yeah, I make this cute peony kanzashi for her.
She loves green so much, so I use tosca (I don’t buy a real green fabric yet) and pink. I just feel want give it to her eventhough there is nothing special happen. Yeah, that’s why my parents usually have misunderstanding if I make something for myself, for selling, or give away. Hahaha… :p
After she received the gift, she told me that she really loves it. Alhamdulillah! ^_^

Easy Photo Editing with Cymera

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 15.47 0 komentar

Look at my newest red peony kanzashi, isn’t it pretty?!? ^o^
This time I use red and pink soft shirt fabric. I make the peony kanzashi a little different with original peony kanzashi because I’m in the mood for to do it. I use some small beads and woll yarn. I love this red peony kanzashi!
Alright, actually I just made this kanzashi this morning then take the photo at noon. Before I take a photo of it, I show this kanzashi to my parents. My father said something about give it to someone. What??? It looks like my fater has missunderstanding with me (because I sometime give my crafts to my friends) but sorry, I don’t give this kanzashi for free to anyone. I usually take photos at daylight on my veranda, over creamy ceramics. Then I editing the photo using Cymera on my tab. After I finished, I show the photo to my father then he said the photo was prettier than the real one. What??? Is it mean that my kanzashi was ugly??? or I did too much editing??? Sigh, actually I don’t do much editing to my photos. So, I decide to make a tutorial how I did my editing.
I use Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and installing Cymera. Cymera is like a programme to take photos and editing it. I use Cymera because it’s very easy to use and the results were pretty. I think the most important things for crafty photos are watermark and a little effect. So, I just give a little effect and write text for my crafty photos, like this one. Usually, after I editing the photos, I upload it to my facebook, pinterest, fanpage, or twitter. Then I download my own photos and save it in my laptop. Yeah, if you lazy like me, you can do this too, hehehe… :p

Felt Carrots and doughnuts

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 17.47 0 komentar

Happy Saturday morning everyone! ^o^
Look at these carrots, isn’t it cute? Hehehe… :p
If you think I’m the one who make these felt carrots, then you’re wrong. Because the one who made these was my mom. Yeah, she has plenty time and curious so she tried to make these carrots. She use sewing machine to sew the inside then handsewing the top. I like the colours, I think orange and green are pretty together. Beside carrots, she also make some strawberries. I don’t take the photo of those strawberries because its similar to strawberries felt we made earlier (you can read on my previous blogpost).
While my mom sew those felt carrots, I was make these doughnuts. I think its not as pretty as my previous doughnuts felt. Maybe because the felt that I used was not as bright as the previous one, and because I feel bored. Yeah, my lackness is I can make something too much because I can feel bored and tired easily. But, that’s okay. I still like my doughnuts felt keychains. Ah yeah, we (me and my mom) put keychain ringson the carrots, strawberries and doughnuts that we made.

This is kanzashi that I made a few days ago. It made from cotton fabric. I love the colours, yellow and purple. Actually I want make kanzashi for my kebaya so I can use the kanzashi as hijab or veil accessories. But unfortunately, the kebaya fabric was used up, so I can’t make it.
This is the kebaya that I aimed.
Then, I choose to make kanzashi from cotton fabric. I have purple sasirangan (traditional fabric from South Kalimantan) gown, then I choose purple and yellow fabric to make the kanzashi. Oh yeah, on the photo you can see a hair comb behind the kanzashi. I don’t glue the kanzashi on it, just place the kanzashi on top of it, because I want use the kanzashi on my hijab or veil using pin (not hair comb). Hehehe… :p

Girls on Doodle

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 18.45 0 komentar

Good Sunday night, everyone!
This is my new doodle. Actually I made the sketch about 2 weeks ago but then abandoned because I was busy with other things and do not have the mood to doodling. My mood is the most important thing to make my doodle this time, because I draw my anger on it.
My doodle this time has a message on it, you can read it. It written in Bahasa Indonesia, in English it means “You are not me and I never want to be you”. Actually I wrote a prose (or a poetry) about my anger too (you can read on my previous blog post, written in Bahasa Indonesia) and make this doodle as blog post cover. I just want to tell to people that everyone of us are unique with our own way, have different passion and taste.
Sometime I feel bad because I release my anger or madness to a prose, poetry, or doodle. But I think its still better that badmouth about something or someone who make me angry.

Prosa : Bukan Orang yang Sama

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 06.53 0 komentar

Kita bertemu di sebuah pelabuhan
Aku tersenyum, kau tersenyum, mereka tersenyum
Tujuan yang tertulis di tiket kita serupa

Aku tahu kau kehilangan sesuatu
Hingga mata mereka tertuju padamu
Kau mengepakkan sayap hitammu, aku diam, mereka bungkam
Kau mengepakkan sayap putihmu, aku tersenyum, mereka bersorak

Aku tidak membencimu
Aku hanya muak dipaksa berdiri di belakangmu
Diseret mengikuti langkahmu
Kau bahkan tak menoleh walau aku berontak dan terseok

Aku bisa berjalan tegap jika tujuanmu adalah tujuanku
Namun, hasratmu bukan hasratku

Kau bukan aku
Aku tak pernah ingin menjadi dirimu

Upcycle Jeans to A Cute Apron

Diposting oleh ainahafizah di 02.01 0 komentar

I really love recycle nor upcycle things, because it was really fun to do and of course it was also fun to see people face when they realize what we make is a recycle or upcycle thing. This is my newest upcycle project, an apron from old jeans.
I was looking for old clothes that unused from my cupboard but then I realize my good but old clothes were given to some people because my cupboard is full. I hate when my cupboard full of clothes, so I decided to give some clothes (it were still in good condition but I don’t or seldom use it) to people, my neighbor exactly. Actually I have an old pajama, a dress one with batik design. I love that pajama because it cool when used. But I give up on it because it was really old. Another reason, my mother buys me some new pajamas for me. Then, I change that old pajama to be an apron. Unfortunately, I don’t take a picture of it.

Yeah, I’m not a photographer and I just use my tab camera. So, I can’t show you the cuteness of this pincushion. I’m sorry for my lack talent of it :p
