DIY Blackboard

Back in the Sale Season last August, our shoe shop Kumi was also giving away 20% discount for in-shop shopping. But what good is a discount if no one notice, right? So I’m thinking about making a small blackboard to hang on the display. At first I’m thinking big like wanna grab a pile of wood, paint it black and voila! But hey…wood ain’t gonna be one hour diy material…

Nah..tahun ini, seperti sudah saya duga…dengan suara 5 oktaf anipchan langsung bertitah: SUSHI! Waduh! otak…

T-shirt Surgery: Studded Tee

Papadino is not a “shirt” guy. He wears t-shirt from time to time. Sometimes they got so worn-up or getting smaller (ah, yes…he’s been fluffing a lot now :p). Since majority of his t-shirts are illustrated, I always get so itch to play with them & make them my own. I’ll try posting some of my altered t-shirt. Though I made some tops for myself, I mostly love turning them…

Me, Myself & Mini Rex

4 months ago I was in panic attack trying to find perfect mini-sewing machine for my projects. Yes, after decades jumping around needles with barehands, I finally say “okay, I think I want a faster, easier, tidier sewing. hmm..” So I ran for it. Why mini? while I already own an industrial machine plus one twenty years-old singer machine that my mom never thought of teaching me how-to (Er…no, this is not a curcol hihi), I cannot use them. Not that I haven’t try, but…yes, I haven’t try :p

Then my oh-so-crazy mind naively thought a hand operated mini-sewing machine won’t hurt my guts. Since I will only have to turn it on, run my fabrics to it and voila! Project is done :p. Not so true. But I will get to it later…
