Just to let you guys know again, I'll be at the Taman Layang-layang Kepong this afternoon as well as tomorrow afternoon to carry out the weight loss survey on the public. Do drop by if you live just a few minutes' walk away and if you're free then. :) My friend and I would greatly appreciate everyone's participation.

After the Singapore trip 2 weeks ago, I came back to KL with head full of what I'd seen. Somehow, ideas just began popping out of nowhere. So I took out a bag of scrap felt, piles of new felt pieces and beads, and started a crafting marathon.

{ I began with this pin brooch on the first day. The speech bubble says かわいい 'kawaii'. }

{ I made this next, on the second day. Glad that it turned out pretty. :P The faux pearls all around the edges just add to the overflowing sweetness. :P Speech bubble says デザート, which I gather from the online translator means 'dessert'. }

{ I made this one on the night of the 2nd day. It's really CUTE, even if I say so myself. :P The base of the pin is salmon pink, and there's a pink organza ribbon bow sewn onto the back of the baby elephant. SO CUTE!!! }

{ This took the whole of Day 3 to make, because two pesky kids came to my place so I had to babysit. -___-" If you noted, I used the polka-dotted fabric button bought in Singapore. }

{ This was done on morning of Day 4. I wanted to put either 'shooting star' in words, but then it came out too long. So I typed 'pretty' into the online translator, and かなり came out. I'm not sure if it's correct. I think it's 'kiirei'? }

{ Made on Day 5 I think. *lost track* If you look at it carefully, you'll notice that I didn't sew the edges of the bunny. I used super glue to seal the felt edges so that it's hard and doesn't fray, and I glued it onto the red circle base. }

{ The same technique goes here. CUTE Mr. Squeeks in love. :D }

So there you go. By the end of last week, I had these sitting in my drawer. Take a look at my Etsy shop if you'd like to have them. :D

I love all your things!!! I saw that you use glue to get together the felt, I normally sew but if you do not want to use glue or sew you can use a felt needle it's very pratical. Just give you a idea since you gave I lot of ideas I like to help too ^-^

hello! i stumbled upon your uber-cute blog. :P
I especially love your elephant~

Just wanted to let you know かなり (kanari) means "pretty" in the sense of "I'm feeling pretty good today."

きれい (kirei) is the term that you were going for. :D

Anyway, they're still adorable, nonetheless. ;)

Hi piko :)

Hehe... What a language mix-up there. XD Ah.... Now I get that kirei is written like that. :P
