🩶 yarn winder 🩶

Sunday 7 April 2024

I'm so excited for this upgrade~! I've recently acquired a yarn winder. Before this i've made yarn cakes with just my hand, it was an enjoyable experience but does take a good 15mins for me to do a single cake. As I collect more yarns I knew it was only a matter of time before i needed a yarn winder. Im very happy to report that it's worth the hype. Using a yarn winder cuts my organisation time by more than half, and depending on the tension i apply, the cakes are less bulkier thus taking less space, which means more room for other yarns to fit in my trolley. Maybe I will post my humble yarn stash one of these days, it would be good to see how much i have since picking up crochet last September of 2023.

🩶 plastic canvas: card wallet 🩶

Saturday 6 April 2024

hello~ it was Snifflehubby's birthday the other day.. I usually gift him digital illustration but this year i thought i make him a cute little wallet to organise his reciepts. it's also passport size if he prefers to use it that way! I used plastic canvas, bit of crochet and basic hand sewing. I used a different stitch to add interest on texture since it's monochrome. Overall im really happy how it came out. it's very cute and polished! the handmade tag is a nice touch that made the wallet more like store-bought item hehe. We've been away from each other for more than a month but will be reunited this coming week, I can't wait to show him this. He lights up my world so much in such daily mundane ways.
