Boxy Pencil Case Tutorial

​Sejak masuk SMP, Hanif senang menggambar manga. Sejak itu pula saya rajin membelikan beragam marker dan brush untuk membantunya menggambar. Sayang marker-nya sering tercecer, karena itu saya buatkan tempat pensil sederhana. Selain hemat, Hanif juga senang karena tempat pensil ini “cowok banget.” Hitam polos dengan zipper abu, hanya bagian dalam saja yang saya pakaikan kain bermotif. Semua hasil pilihan Hanif sendiri. Ngga disangka, setelah ia pakai ke sekolah beberapa temannya…

30-Minutes Triangle Bag

Beberapa waktu lalu, saya lihat tas berbentuk segitiga di majalah Jepang. Tas itu terbuat dari bahan semacam linen dengan gantungan warna-warni. Jepang memang paling oke soal crafting, ngga pernah habis idenya! Maka dari itu, ketika saya tetiba perlu tas pesta yang cukup besar untuk menyimpan ponsel dsb tapi juga ringan dibawa, pikiran saya langsung tertuju ke tas segitiga tadi. Kayaknya sih, bikinnya ngga susah *pede Ternyata benar, 1/2 jam kemudian…

LHOR Yoga-mat Bag

Belakangan ini lagi suka banget latihan yoga bareng temen-temen Ruang Yoga. Rasanya puas deh kalau abis latihan terus keringat mengucur dan badan terasa hangat. Buat saya yang sebenernya bukan fans gerak badan, yoga yang banyak fokus di balance, postur dan meditasi sukses bikin saya addict! Nah, meskipun di Ruang Yoga tersedia matras, saya lebih suka bawa matras sendiri. Kebetulan matras saya ngga begitu tebal jadi enak dibawa kemana-mana. Sayangnya saking…

Since I can’t let the key wander my purse unsupervised, I figure I can make a temporary pouch just to keep my key intact. Only until I get better one 🙂 For this mini pouch slash key-case, I am using…

One-Night Shirt for Anipchan

Last month my sister in law booked us a family photo-session on the occasion of her graduation ceremony. She said the occasion is perfect and I can’t agree more, considering we did never took family photo with Papadino’s fam. She will wear grey kebaya for her graduation, so we’ll wear something in that colour range to match. grey and black is always my fav go-to colour so it’s not a…

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…
