Crochet + Robot = Crobots

I am so excited and I want to share this wonderful book for those who are little bit geeky or just love adorable robots!!!

This book has 20 crobots for you to make and play with. The pattern is easy to make and they are all too adorable. All the crobots pattern contains difficulty level and also abbreviation used in the pattern.

Here's my first crobots, Ms. Mechanobot. Lady version of Mechanobot from the book.

Private swap - Baker dotee

Recently I did a private swap with Debra from USA, I am sending her dotee doll and she will be sending me some scrapbook supplies. As Debra love dotee doll and baking, I make her a baker theme doll.

This lady doll is a blondie with checker's apron and a wooden spatula (made from felt). I have fun making dotee doll for Debra and hope she will enjoy & love the baker dotee doll.

Earth Day at Ikano

I happened to drop by at Ikano Power Centre during the Earth Day celebration. While hunting for the organic cotton supplier for my aunt, I was amazed with the creation with all the household trash that is polluting our mother earth.

I guess that reuse and upcycling is the way to go. I am trying to cut down on buying fabrics and use up the old t's lying around and the scrap fabric i got from the streamstress. Though it's a big challenge as the fabrics are not so ideal for my work, I hope to resolve this problem by crafting based on the material and the fabric print.

Let's have a look at the exhibition in Ikano.................

I just love this bag, I guess the message the designer try to convey is to "Think before you throw away things" . If you don't like upcycling, then just recycle.

There's actually 3 upcycle items in this photo. From left: A chair made from wood pellet; a round table with Singer sewing maching pedler; and the last one I can't recall but i guess it's a resting station

Plastic Bag made from plastic bags!!! And a holder made from Milo foil.

And lastly an interesting tent by indie artist.
