Alhamdulillah dapat rejeki laptop baru buat kerja. Kali ini mau bikin pouch rajutan sendiri. Kebetulan masih punya benang no. 10 warna dusty pink (matching sama laptopnya) beli di Bonn jaman dulu dan dirajut dengan crochet hook no. 2.0. Bikinnya sambil nonton film di komputer dan disela-sela kerjaan lain. Butuh waktu 5 hari buat menyelesaikannya. Untuk ukurannya langsung disesuaikan dengan besar macbooknya. Kancingnya pakai koleksi kancing kayu dari Berlin.
It's time to restock the tumbler/bottle holder since I send 30 pieces to Karawang. I'm doing in between working with reusable vegetable mesh bag.
I'm enjoying this busy day. I spent my morning with kids in Taman Baca Garasi. It's been 5 years since first time this library is open for public. Then I spent the day till night with Wira's family. We were celebrating Avi's birthday. I also spent time to make a new order from my friend for her daughter. It's an iPod Touch Pouch.
I've been wanting to make a crochet handbag since a long time ago. But I haven't found the right yarn and pattern to make it. So when I found this yarn in Idee with the pattern I'm looking for, I decided to get it. And today I start to make it. A little bit problem with the pattern though, the language isn't the one I used to. After searching the web, I found the site that translate this language and problem solve :) Now I have a crochet handbag.
I promise a friend of mine a pouch for her iPad Mini. So I start to work with it and finished it by night. Nice way to spend time while having jet lag :) Hope she like it.
A long time ago, I promised two cousins of mine a crochet sunglasses case. Being busy with this and that makes the promised not yet fulfilled. So starting yesterday I start to make one. I finished up this one during my flight and while waiting for transfer. Hope they'll like it :)
I finally figure out how to make this tumbler holder look nice. I used some creativity stuffs in Taman Baca Garasi. Get your favorite tumbler/bottle holder now.
I finished up 24 new tumbler holder with some new colours available. I need to figure out how to package it nicely without to much trash to throw out after.
I'm working something new in between making tumbler holder. It's a crochet belt for one of my dress. I see one picture and try to figure out how to make it, since the instruction not really clear. It turn out nicely 😍
Well...I guess this will be the last picture of my granny square afghan for this year. It looks really nice on this sofa. I think I need to buy a new sofa to put my afghan ;p
I'm working with tumbler holder this week and I have new colour on the stock. I try to make it as many as possible and try to sell it. This is one way to promote zero waste behaviour. Go get one for yourself...
Hope you all not get bored by this picture since I post a lot about this project. Still amazed that I finally able to finish it :)
Inspired by Sandra Juto on her blog, I'm starting to make my own granny square afghan project. Actually I start it around November 2013 but since I'm helping my sister to take care her daughter, Amira, I just couldn't find the time to continue it. On the 21st day of my 365 of 204 projects, I decided to make it as another project for 2014. Hopefully it will finish before this year turn into 2015 :)
After Amira turn 4 months, she starts using a baby sitter and I have more spare time to work on this project. Around mid July, I was able to finish 400 circles that will be joined into granny square afghan. I finally able to finish this project yesterday, just before the date turns into November 5th.
So here are my Granny Square Afghan Project. I'm using cotton yarn with 3 mm crochet hook. Combination of 11 colour for the circle and 1 colour to join all of them. Each square has a different colour combination. Weigh 1.35 kg and 145 cm x 135 cm in size, this afghan contain 400 granny squares.
Sandra Juto sell her blanket for €599 while mine is not for sale at the moment :)
Today I work on two more tumbler holder, red and tuscan red. I also start cataloging the crafts. Now I'm working on purple small size tumbler holder.
All my tumbler holder were sold out. So I start to make some new one to sell. I need to finished it before Wednesday. Work...work...and more work...
I'm making more tumbler/bottle holder to sell. So far available in dark purple, fuchsia, baby pink and light blue. Still working on other colour.
Back to my granny square afghan project. Row 11th need longer time to worked on since to many things need to be done. Now I'm start with row 12th. Hope this project will finished by the end of the month.
Two tumbler holder ready to giveaway tomorrow. First time I make this tumbler almost a year ago. I made it for myself to bring my tumbler every day. So last night and today I make this two. I promised to give a gift as appreciation to 5 person who bring their tumbler to tomorrow's gathering event. The giveaway present will be two folding bag, two tumbler holder and a vacuum & insulated water bottle.
Panic is when you realise you only have enough yarn for half project and it's almost Eid ul-Fitr. But I'm happy when I call the store this morning that they still open today. So first thing when we go out today is Micky Mocko in Tebet to buy the yarn. I bought six rolls of off white cotton yarn to finished up my project.
This is the last posting on January 2014. I would like to show you the progress I make since my posting 10 days ago. In between taking care Amira and playing with her, I'm able to do some crochet. Still need plenty of granny square to complete my afghan but surely it's a progress :)
Today Amira's mom working from home, so I have some time to myself. I am working on my barbie's blog. I took pictures some of new dress that haven't posted in the blog. I feel my creativity light up. I am thinking about make other things.
