Simple Baby Cardigan ❤️

Syukur, setelah beberapa lama pasang niat nak kait cardigan untuk baby ni terlaksana jua. Cardigan
ni khas buat Ammar Muayish, anak saudara ku yang berumur 10 bulan. Sumber paten adaptasi dari "WoolyWondersCrochet" melalui youtube. Bagi sesiapa yang mengenali diri ini, memang kombinasi warna kelabu dengan biru gelap atau navy blue adalah warna favourite aku 😍 

Masa nak bagi tu adalah berdebar-debar jugak, risau tak muat/longgar sangat. Namun Alhamdulillah perkongsian foto dari Ummi nya menunjukkan cardigan tu terletak elok aje kat badan dia hahah! 

Abang Emmer sampai kata best peluk adik dia sebab gebu macam bantal πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Yalah benang "bcyarn" dari kak Lina "pinkyfrog" ni memang tebal dan lembut sangat, dan yang pasti tak panas. Selesa dipakai terutama kat negara kita yang beriklim khatulistiwa ni. 

Jadi sempena tahun 2017 ni, aku ingat nak mula buka tempahan untuk sweater/cardigan/dress buat baby yg berusia 0-12 bulan. Tambahan satu lagi produk baru dari "Cute Pretty Lil' Things Made by Yoan" selain dari baby cocoon/swaddle (bedung) hari tu πŸ˜‰

Alright, kalau ada apa-apa pertanyaan untuk nak tempah produk kait boleh je PM tepi,
email atau WhatsApp ye. Thank you!

Baby Swaddle Sack..

It's been 2 weeks since we entered year 2017, Alhamdulillah for all the blessings. I sure hope things are going well for all of you too! Actually I wanted to share with you my first crochet custom baby swaddle sack aka cocoon (bedung kait in Malay) that I made for my client recently. She ordered it as a prop for her baby's first photoshoot. She just gave birth somewhere in the first week of January. I figured it was meant to be a baby announcement photoshoot.

I happily accepted her request as I also have been planning to make a baby cocoon since last year, so that I could budget the yarn usage and the time consume needed in order to complete one. To my surprise it doesn't take that long, I was manage to get the cocoon done within 4 days. I think if I go for a simple hdc/dc cocoon pattern I could've finish it earlier. I pick a paid pattern of pretty wave-yish design I bought from ravelry, here's the link to the site if you wish to have a look. I just switch the cute chick beanie to a simple bear beanie with ears and since this set is made for a baby girl, hence the color used; pink, baby pink, ivory and light grey. With finished measurement of 14'5" in length and 9" wide, I think it should be a nice cocoon sack for a baby to snuggle in 😁. Together with it, she requested a set of headband and shoes with co-ordinating colors 😍. 

I do pray and hope the mommy will love her baby's prop, which is schedule to be taken on this coming 16th! Now it's only a matter of time, I just have to wait for the photos (feeling hopeful she'd share it with me) soon! I will update when she does, insha Allah 😁

For now, here are some photos of the baby swaddle sack set that I manage to take before sending them off to its new home! 😍

Kind of sweet right? Well, I know I had a good challenging time working on this set πŸ˜… and surely looking forward for more new makes I'll be getting myself into. Do stay tuned and please remember your endless support towards my handmade and other makers out there means the world to us.

This plush actually took me a while to complete ( all my projects lol πŸ™Š) but Alhamdulillah, finally I'm happy to share with you all that Kiko the Monkey has safely reached his new home 😍 Measuring 5 inches in heights and weighing just about a soft toys should be hahaha.. I think he's the cutest lil' creature I've ever made, with his poseable arms and tails to make him sit around and hugging his favourite fruit of all; the banana! Of course lil' Kiko won't be possible if it weren't for the wonderful  and talented crocheter Stephanie from All About Ami who generously shared her pattern for free! I thank you Stephanie for helping me turned the wish of a new mommy-to-be into a reality.

A lil' snippet while I worked on Kiko's bottom back then heheh πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Even before putting him together, he already looked sooo cute ❤️❤️❤️

While working on him, it did made me feel a bit sad cuz after our long weeks together he will be departed to his new home, one of the perks of being a maker huhuhu..but I know deep down I should be happy cuz over at his new home NOW he'll be loved, cherished and admired by his soon to be born owner πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸŽ‰ and that's what keeps me going with what I enjoy doing most!

Our first Granny squares blanket.

Alhamdulillah, happy to share with you, now the granny squares blanket I've been working on since end of December 2015 is all DONE! Measuring 34"x 34" and made with pure natural cotton using boy theme colors in sky blue, ash grey and solid white, I'm thankful for the opportunity and trust my client has given me. 

I realise while making this blanket has taught me that I am capable of more than I give myself credit for, and that I am stronger than I think. As with everything in life, there are challenges, but we also learn through them and come out stonger in the end. 

I pray the lucky little boy (which is due somewhere this April) will treasure this blanket, so one day he can pass it on to his little boy! Insha Allah, Amiin ;)

Crocheted Mini Bag..

Next in my list of order was a simple mini tote bag. A customer of mine requested it to be made to fit in two regular size formula's bottles for her lil' princess. I started to imagine how the bag will look like. At first I just do plain DCs' in rows, but since my yarn is quite the soft ones, it doesn't give the sturdier look that I've imagine and they look kind of thin I pull the stitches apart which I had worked like almost 50% over and started to look around at google and youtube for more ideas, cuz being a self taught crocheter and trying to create something from scratch it ain't easy. I needed inspiration! There I found one .. A japanesse tutorial, with no subs to understand what she was talking about. I then just mute her and go on slowly thru her actions from the video tutorial in order to learn what she was doing. At last I managed too, luckily she was very precise and her video was exactly focusing on what she was doing. Alhamdulillah, now the product is finish and I must say I'm very pleased with it, especially with the weaving effect it has. I just can't wait to give it to her. Hope she'll be happy with it and I'm glad that I got to learn this new kind of stitch, its just beautiful <3 <3 <3

Oh and by the way, I just learned that this beautiful stitches are called "Basket Weave Stitch" Perfect for a lil' cute bag don't you think so?  ;)


Baby Owl Giftset..

Took the liberty of customizing a giftcard on behalf of my lovely customer who'll be gifting this cute babyset to her brother's newborn. Actually she doesn't even know it herself hehehe.. I love the idea of making someone's day even in a smaller way and adding a greeting card is something people will always cherish especially if the card was a customade according to the babyset theme; OWL

Hehehe "Owl-ways Love You, Baby!" I've seen this phrase somewhere before that I immediately thought it'll be a cute caption to the giftcard..Alhamdulillah it turned out cute as I hoped it will be ;). Now who doesn't adore babies and owls? :)

If you'd like to order your own personalized greeting/gift card just hop over to @ayaminlove insta for details even better just visit her website at , signup to order and start redeeming points for free cards! Thank you sweetie Munira @ayaminlove for accomodating to my request! She was indeed fast and friendly through out the whole process which made my first customize giftcard purchase a lot easier than I thought hehehe.. It was awesome getting to work together, looking forward for more collaboration work with her again soon Insha Allah :)

P/s : I've got something on my mind actually for a collaboration sale but still much to work thru the details. Insha Allah when the timing is right, I'll update with more information, but first I must make readymade shoes/babysets for that occasion aite! huhuhu..please keep me in your du'a, jazakallahu khayr :)

That's my new DIY thank you tag and box which I made myself hehehe..No full view of it as I forgotten to take one ;D
