Rainbow Dreams

Been busy busy busy these few days. Trying to settle down and get some things done - had a haircut and did some bank stuff, fetch my sis to and fro her school and for other activities, help mum clean the house, and cook lunches. *Phew*

But I never fail to spare time for my love - crafting. :P I made another rainbow yesterday night. I just feel so happy looking at it. :)

Rainbow Dreams Necklace / Pins Set

Hoohoo.... I have yet to learn proper jewelry-making skills. The metal parts and clasps are actually for finer beading wires and threads. I didn't want to use those, so terpaksa make do with what I have. This necklace base is only an embroidery thread, with a thicker black chord tied to it. Even so, it is quite sturdy and with minimum rough handling, it should stay as it is. :)

The 9 individual embellished felt patches are actually pin brooches. You may take them off to wear as pins, or put on only one on the necklace as a sole pendant, whatever you like. It's quite versatile one lo. :D

Here's my lil sis modelling it :

Sorry for the blurry pic. I have hands-will-shake-when-taking-photos syndrome, unless I steady my hands on a table or something. Look at her. :D She was giggling through the whole process of me taking her photos. Her laugh sangat infectious. Tsk tsk.

Ha... lovely days with rainbows ahead.

Very pretty!

I really like the necklace too! But probably as separate pins, can use for wearing my tudungs and such. ^^;

Anyway, hehe, I bet us Msian crafters are used to "making do with what we have". :) I can't believe you found that craft mag, BTW. At Kinokuniya! Dang, I should've been there. =/ *jealous* Was it expensive, though? The magazine?

Thanks priscilla and christine. :)

Aneesah, thanks. :) Yeah the magazine costed me RM50. T.T But it probably would have been even more expensive if I bought it off online. It's a quarterly published mag I think. You should go look for the next edition sometime in July. :)
