Mini projects: Strawberry and Mended Heart


I made these felt strawberries the other day
And used one as my mobile phone charm!!
Most people think it's cute. The reactions I get from people vary after I've told them I made it myself; from the slight nod of approval to the wide-eyed look of disbelief.

Anyway, I was eager to try something new but I was low on supplies to do anything complicated.
So I decided to make this little red heart with a cross over it.

I took a risk with the purple side stitching (since I'm still such an amateur) but I think it look so good and distinct against the red! Am so proud of myself *OHOHOHOHOHO!!!!

After that, I was really itching to make more cotton-stuffed cuties.
So I went out in the 30 degree heat today to get more supplies!
That's passion for you! (Or maybe obsession?)

I actually finished Project D a long time ago but it's for Josh and I want him to see it for himself when he gets back from Malaysia (Don't want to ruin the surprise for him!)
Will post up pictures after he returns.

Days left till Josh gets back: 5

Project D

Can you guess what I'm making next??

Hope that those who celebrate Chinese New Year, I hope you had a good one! Josh has returned back to his hometown in Malaysia so I'm without him for 2 whole weeks.

I celebrated Chinese New Year with Rudi instead. HAHAHA!
We went to Chinatown in the City and managed to catch a street lion dance performance outside of a restaurant. It's a little different to the ones back home in Brunei but not enough to keep me interested.

Years ago, I would have been excited (and also scared) of the lions as they are always much larger than I am. Moreover, their movements are often erratic.

As a child, I never understood why my mother would just rather stand back and watch from afar while I would frantically try to catch a glimpse of the lions.

I'm turning 23 and I'm already bored.

Uh oh.

I'm really glad that I went out though. It sure beats rotting at home alone anyway!!

OH! My birthday is in 11 days!!
Cards and presents are welcome!
Please email me for my postal address! XD

Mr. Toast Plushie

Yet again, I've found another obsession.

I saw this absolutely cute Toast keychain plush tutorial by aiwa-9 from and decided to try my hand at making one too!

I went out to source my materials..

To be honest, I didn't know what half the things were inside the sewing/crafting kit

I. am. a. total. noob.

Still, I didn't let that deter me from making my very own Mr. Toast Plush keychain
I began following the tutorial and bit by bit, my Mr. Toast was coming together!

Sewing was the most pain-staking part as it requires a great of consistency to keep the stitches about 2mm apart from each other @.@

My Mr. Toast doesn't look as good as Aiwa's but I'm very happy with it!!
It is so uber cute!! Kyahhh~!! ♥

I've already gotten started on my next plush toy!! :D
Will post photos after I've completed it ;)

Grey Storm Coloured Contacts by Clearly Contacts

As some of you may know, I've recently purchased coloured contact lenses. 
I wasn't too sure where to start so I decided by getting these pair of lenses called "Grey Storm" by Clearly Contacts as I heard that the colour grey are great on asians.


When I first wore them, I they looked really strange on me!

Before and After

As you can see, the grey didn't blend in very well with my natural brown eye colour; making my contacts look quite unnatural close-up.

And I also noticed immediately that my pair of lenses were different!!!

Can you see the difference? The one on the right has fewer number of radial grey strokes and a larger black rim.

The difference wasn't that obvious from far anyway.
I really like them a lot!!! They're quite glassy-looking from far; giving me a teary-eyed look!

Accidental artistic shot (Wanted to show you how the lenses look like in direct sunlight)
Pretty neat, huh?? :3
