It's been a while since I found some scrap fabric from my Thailand's songket. The size fit for one Barbie's skirt. But I just had time to make it and post it in here. This dress is kind of dress you used for a wedding party or semiformal party in Indonesia. The top is easy to make. My aunt teach me how to make it. This fit barbie perfectly.

Finally I finished up the bedroom. Bed made from cereal box covered with white fabric and secure with duck tape. Both side of bedcover can be used. The bed completed with body pillow and regular pillows. To complete the bedroom setting, I add yogurette table with books, pencils and chair.

Things you can put on your table can really be varied. Pictures above showing you how to filled up your table with school stuff such as books, pencils, colored pencils and drawing book. How to make books and pencils can be found in one of My Froggy Stuff videos in youtube.
This table made out of yogurette box. It's a chocolate box. I didn't paint or cover it because it already had a nice picture. For the leg I used wooden clothes pins and wooden hand-fan that broken. I glue the leg to the box and then glue the fan. Put your stuff on top of it such as books, pencils, etc. Pair it with chair and your table ready to use.

I have to look out to Ikea katalog to find out how the bookend called. New word for me since I don't use English as my first language. Anyway... the idea came up when I start making books for my dolls. I don't make too many books that need a bookcase but I need something to keep it stand up on the table. So I'm thinking about making a bookend.
To make a bookend, I just need small paper clips. I bend one part of the paper clip until it shape like 'L'. And your bookend ready to use. If you don't have a wall to hold your books on the other end, so you need 2 bookends to keep your book stand. It's so easy to make and also simple.
Another inspiration I got from My Froggy Stuff. Yeah sure, she's really creative and plenty of idea. This time I use a water gallon cap for the seat part and chopsticks for the leg. It's not easy to find wooden dowel here in Jakarta. So I have to be creative just like froggy mama. With old fabric and glue gun, the stool turn out pretty nice.
Inspired by My Froggy Stuff, I was planning to make the chair. Fortunately my sister brought ice cream from her office. So after eating ice cream, I told everyone to collect the stick. So far I got 6 sticks. So I only able to make one chair. This chair is quite easy to make but a bit tricky with the legs. One of the chair leg keep sticking out. Well, there's nothing perfect in this life :)

This is the third sofa I make. I use felt to cover the sofa. This time I make it differently from before. This time I cover all the cardboard and sew it with sewing machine. To joint all part I also sew it together. This is quite similar with my first sofa. I also add decoration pillows with lighter color than the sofa with pink accent.

Watching My Froggy Stuff makes me thinking about collecting another dolls other than Barbie. My choices are Liv Doll or BFC Ink. Because they have a nice face and they have articulate joint. But finally I choose Liv Doll because it's price and size. The price and size are about the same with Barbie Doll. Although Liv Doll has bigger head than Barbie. This doll also using a wig that you can change. The eyes look so real make the doll look really pretty. With the same price as Barbie, Liv Doll give more such as another set of dress, hair brush, bag, earring, and other tools depend on your doll. From all the choices, I choose Alexis It's My Nature for my first collection. Because the doll wasn't available in Indonesia, I decided to buy it online and sent to my friend who's stay in London for a while and will coming back to Indonesia.
Yesterday I met my friend and she bring my doll. I'm so happy and I like it so much... Can't wait to make dresses and other things for her... Wait up for my review, I just get her out of the box.

This drawer also one thing I made for my niece. Instead of making the one that look like a drawer, I decided to make real drawer so she can keep something inside of it. The surface covered with duct tape and I used beads for the handle. Instead of gluing the beads, I used wire to fix it.

The first picture was a desk lamp I made for my niece. But after sometimes, the things start to falling apart. So I bring it home and remake the lamp.
I change the lamp cap with scrap-booking paper. I drew two circle and cut on bigger circle. After that I make 8 vertical line connecting smaller & bigger circle and cut it. It will make it easier to bend the paper. Glue them until it form a bucket and the rest was the same with instruction on this blog. As an accent I use small ribbon.

I'm just looking around at My Froggy Stuff and realize that they just post plenty of new things. Can't stop reading it. And suddenly it flashed in my mind that I want a space to put my barbie project and take picture of it. Now my head thinking faster than my hand can move...

The tittle may sound funny. But that's a fact. Not really half in physically but more like the ownership. My sister & I bought this barbie after we collect some point in one of supermarket. We can bought it with small amount of money if we have a certain amount of point. Since my sister didn't have a barbie so we bought this barbie. So it's only half mine. Although in reality I played this barbie most of the time.
