DIY Bird – Cross Stitch

DIY Bird – Cross Stitch

Hello! Happy new year to all of the viewers here! 

I am so glad to be back and created another project that I’d love to share with you. It’s cross stitching! I just recently did it for the very first time and it’s really fun. I myself did this piece for 2 days, isn’t it strange? or is it normal? Please let me know if you are an experienced cross stitcher 😀

As soon as I tried cross stitching for the first time, I knew that making the pattern will be more fun and challenging. I planned to make it simple but beautiful. So, here is the pattern of a little bird on a branch. 

When you finish this piece, you will notice how pretty the combination of gray colors on one frame. It would be perfect for wall decoration and even apply it to any of your project. 

 I hope you enjoy the pattern!

How to add a border around the picture

For a better result, it’s better to add a border around the picture. The border will guide you to cut the sticker precisely as the original size and it becomes neater. Below is the little steps you can do to add a border using Photoshop. 

  • Open the file and click Image >> Canvas Size

  • Tick the Relative and set the value of width and height as you like it (I put 3 mm). Then, set the canvas extension color to black and click OK.

And…Voila! here you go 🙂

DIY Cute Boxes

Hello again! I hope you are all doing fine and healthy. As of today, I want to share one of my bunch of creations. I am sure it would be pretty interesting for some of you who love paper crafts. It’s DIY cute box :)! 

These boxes are not ordinary as you can see from the shapes and the drawings on it.  It would be wonderful for many purposes. I myself made it from scratch because I’ve once seen a post about cute drawings and I thought it would be so kawaii if I can draw it myself and have it on the boxes. 

You can download the template below for free. You will get a zip file containing 3 .JPG images that you can resize and edit whatever you want. The original and real size from the picture is around 3.2 inches width and I printed it on 200 gsm A4 paper.

 Tools and Materials

o    200 gsm A4 Paper (customize as you like it)

o    Ruler

o    Scissor

o    Double sided tape

Instructions

Download and print the template.          

Cut the template with a scissor.

Fold the dashed lines from the back. I use the tip of my scissor to define the line and make it more foldable with the help of a ruler to make my line straight. Note: do it gently 😉

Then, make sure to fold the paper as shown in the picture below.

Next, you can start gluing the flap as shown below with double sided tape or just regular glue. And, your cute box is done! 

Clipart: Quarantine

Clipart: Quarantine

Hello! it’s been ages and finally I can get back here. The reason for not being active lately is because I develop a quite disturbing allergy that makes me hard to work with wools and fabrics. I don’t know why it happens so suddenly and I think I may stop working with my favorite materials for the unknown time.

However, I feel like I need to get back here no matter what and I thought sharing a set of clip arts will be cool.  So, I took some time to draw cute images that represent the current situation in the whole world. It’s pretty chaotic out there with everything related to Covid-19. I hope you are all good and healthy. Eat and rest well, loves! 

For the clip arts, you can download it for free. You will get 5 PNG files that you can use for many things such as stickers. 

Hope you like it! 🙂

 Tools and Materials

o    Felts

  • White

 o    Scissor

Instructions

Download, print and cut the pattern.                 

Trace the pattern on the green and ivory felts and cut it.

For the eyes, I cut the eye from the pattern, trace on the felts (black and white) and cut it.

Glue the eyes and create a smile and blushes on the cheeks using black and pink thread, respectively. For the smile, I used straight stitches while for the blushes I used satin stitches.

If you are done with the face, you can start sewing the head with blanket stitches. Then, leave a space for filling the toy stuffing inside and close the seam.

Sew the body with blanket stitches. Then, if you’re done, sew the body and head together with ladder or invisible stitches. You should do it on the front and back to make sure it is attached well.

Sew the belly and hands with blanket stitches on the body directly.

Lastly, sew the feet on the back of the frog’s body with blanket stitches directly. Aaaand… The frog is done!


DIY Carnation Necklace

DIY Carnation Necklace

Hi lovelies! Let’s join me making a lovely and adorable project that you will love it. I believe some of you may or may not know that certain flowers symbolise somebody’s birth. It has a reason why specific flower represents specific month. As of today, I want to start this project with the first month, which is January. 

Carnation is believed to symbolise someone’s birth in January. January is a cold and gloomy month, but in some non-frozen areas, many flowers will bloom beautifully and carnation is one of them. It symbolises admiration, deep love,  and affection. Therefore, this project is perfect for you who wants to make a special gift for someone’s birthday in January. Without further do, let’s make it!

DIY Dragon Plush

DIY Dragon Plush

Hello! I am back for a new and free pattern. At this time, I want to share how to make this adorable not-so-like a dragon plush. This dragon plush is perfect for Birthday, Mother’s day, and any special day. Moreover, it’s also a gorgeous toy for a baby and you can use safer material for this purpose.

Let me share a little story behind this adorable creature. Whenever I made my plushes, I usually did some trial until I got the perfect pattern for the final result. However, for this dragon plush, I directly made it without any trial with hope that it can at least be good. I noticed something, which is not that perfect for this pattern but I am too lazy to found the culprit behind it. And, I think my dragon plush is still acceptable, isn’t it? haha.

I am very open for any modification on this pattern. It’s up to you to modify and find what suits the most to your liking. Here I am trying to show you how to make it from scratch with hope you get the basic idea. Without further do, let’s make it!
