Fabric Patchwork Illustration

Still remember my last post about my scrap fabric projects?

Today I will share a few -my unfinished- patchwork illustration. I am just so happy with the result so i decided to post it right away ^^. 

You could see the transformation. Thank you Lily for your advise and support while I am doing this projects.

I put a little embellishment and embroidery. Not a perfect illustration yet. But I am quiet happy with it.

what do you think?

My Craft Books Collection

Hey Hoo...

Many of us who have found our place in the craft and blogging world often dream of writing a book. And for that reason we need to read many literature ^^..

I would like share my private craft book collection .. Mostly I buy these books online. Some of them i got from Toko Buku Redjo, Good Think, Toko Buku CraftI am a book loverz, especially craft books. But you know, craft book always a very expensive stuff for us.. so we need to pick carefully. Sometimes these online store (above), give us a very special offer or sale time.

On the right side is Petit a Petit, a Parissian style patchwork. In the middle is Tilda Serie SEW SUNNY HOMESTYLE, and the left side is a book about embroidery. Unfortunetly, they all writen in mandarin/chinesse. 

 These are actually not a book, but a magazine. Cotton Time and Stitch Idees.
These Magazines are a gift from my dearest friends. I got Quiltmaker (US edition) from Mb Hany, and Patchwork & Quilting (Aussie Edition) from mb Afiana. I love all of them ^^..

Scrap Fabrics Projects

Hi^^.. how is your crafty days?

I have been collecting some scrap cotton fabrics lately. I love their colors and motifs.

Others i get from tailors or buy it from the facebook online shop ( eve craft, lemonzcraft, daddy's girl, happy blossom, asyiknya menjahit )

They sell various awesome cottons, and also some  "Perca" or Scrap Fabrics. It's just a really sweet temptations ^^ you really wanna buy it all.

This is my first try. I made some patchwork. not so happy with the result :D or maybe there is no embellishment on it, yet. or maybe you could give me some advise?
