Tarn Projects: T-shirt Yarn Basket

Merajut, bagi saya, adalah terapi. Untuk menghilangkan kebosanan setelah seharian berjibaku dengan pekerjaan rumah tangga dan anak-anak.

Merajut itu... hobi yang praktis. Sambil selonjoran, duduk santai di depan TV menemani suami menonton bola. Atau sambil mendengarkan rekaman murottal dan mengulang hafalan.

Sungguh, salah satu nikmat-Nya adalah: Waktu luang yang bermanfaat. Dan merajut termasuk salah satunya, setelah ibadah.

Semoga hasil kreasi di waktu senggang saya ini bisa menginspirasi teman-teman :)

Cute Brooch Boutonniere for Gift or Keepsake

Hello all! This time I want to share some pictures of my creations. It usually requested to be a gift. Everyone love gifts, right? Now let's see what I made.

Anyway, who can refuse these small, cute gift? When one of my friends is moving from Depok to Yogyakarta, she requested these brooches for her friends (not including me, I'm the maker. LOL)
I named it Ann Brooch. To be honest, I didn't have any idea to choose a name, so I abbreviated Nayfah's name. Ann stands for: Arini Nur Nayfah.

It's made of bali cotton yarn (flowers) and beige polypropilene fiber, synthetic pearls, diamonds, and high quality pin-backing. Almost all process are fully handwork. I hand-crocheted the flowers and leaf. Then, 3 mm beads and mini diamonds hand-sewn to the center of the flowers (phew!).

When I posted on my Facebook Page, some people say it's over pricing. Wait -- OVER PRICING? I don't think so. Come on, people... IDR 39.000 is similar to USD $3. I thought it's too cheap, actually (-_-') It was on SALE, wasn't it?

FREE Pattern: Crochet Hot Pads (Pot Holder)

Aloha! Seems that it's time to cook #sigh. To be honest, I'm a very, very bad cook. I can't cook any so-delicious foods like any women out there can make (easily!) But, I do have a passion for the kitchen.
Right! Decorating it!

Days ago, I went to kitchen and was going to cook. Wait, I said, I have only two hot pads. I need MORE to serve dinner!
*Thanks God I have a good reason to leave kitchen and go to my crafting room, haha!*

And here are five (oh, five!) pot holder I just made. They are easy to make, even for beginners.
Now get ready with the "ingeredients" (as I was about cooking, right?):

  • 1 big cake of t-shirt yarn (remember, the cake cannot be eaten. Believe me!)

  • Passion!
