Hello Kitty Face Pillow

When thinking about making Michelle birthday gift, I crossed with a cute pictures of Hello Kitty and thinking about make a face pillow. 

Making a pattern on a piece of a paper and then copied the pattern to white felt fabric, and I sewed across the edge. Fill the pillow with stuffing and finish up to sewed the edge. Then I make stitches for the eyes and nose. Add a red felt to make a bow and sew it to the white felt.

But I think I forget something... I forget to make stitches for the cat whiskers. Oh well... I sew it next time I visit my niece :) 

Update 23/02/14:
I had the chances to work on the whiskers today. So I'll post the picture after I sew on the whiskers.

Hello Kitty Bedcover & Pillows

My niece just turn 7 last July. If people ask what kind of gifts she wanted for her birthday, she will say something with Hello Kitty themes. Meanwhile she ask me something for her barbie just like last year. It took me 2 months to finished up the request because I still have no idea what to make. And then I remember that she had barbie's bed but hasn't had bedcover. So I decided to make bedcover and matching pillows.

At first I was thinking to make bedcover with fabric I have at home but then it cross my mind to matched barbie's bed set with hers. She plan to decor her room with Hello Kitty themes. So I decided to make Hello Kitty theme bedcover and pillows.

It took me 2 hours to work on it but it took me forever to find Hello Kitty theme fabrics. Finally I found a fabric that could work nicely as bedcover and pillows with small enough Hello Kitty on it. The fabric is the one you used to wrap a newborn baby. So the fabric almost feel like felt, smooth and soft but not as thick as felt.

Since my niece had a pull out bed, I make 2 bedcovers and 4 pillows. I also make one Hello Kitty face pillow from felt as decorative pillow.

What Barbie Can Dream Of

Found this Vespa at the airport last week. This is really what Barbie can dream of (or is it me? :p). This Vespa has 1:6 scale, just about the right size for Barbie. It cost about Rp. 700.000 (or around 62 USD). I didn't buy this, so if somebody would like to give me this as a gift, I would really love that :) It also available for 1:12 scale.

Red & White Gown

Finally, I was able to finished up this gown. I've been working since end of January until early of June 2013. It turn out into a lovely gown. I still have to put snap button on the back and trim the excessive yarn. I forgot where I got the pattern, but I'll try to search my collection and update the source later on.

The gown made of no. 10 cotton red yarn and white acrylic yarn. At the end of red yarn, I put beads to make it prettier. 

I really love this gown... I need to find a matching shoes and make a purse for this dress. And I need to take proper pictures.
