This post's title is in Bahasa Indonesia, means 'freedom' - and it's also the title of a new launched comic book.

As the title suggests, yes, the comic is made in Indonesia by some talented Indonesian young authors, and it's written in Bahasa Indonesia too :D

Based on a story of struggle for independence, who would've thought it could be presented in such cute graphics and light storyline.

Sneak Peek : more custom designed cushion covers ..

This one is for my friend in Bali, Indonesia, who needs some covers for her floor cushions.

As her favourite color is purple - and I happen to have loads of fabric in that color - so I made her cushion cover from purple IKEA fabric combined with Tenun Troso fabric in purple shades rainbow.

Then I added a dash of orange color in the form of buttons to complement the purple color as well as it matches the color in the Tenun Troso's rainbow pattern.

... just changed my blog's header (again)

Currently I'm on holiday in my hometown Jakarta, Indonesia, so I feel this bright outdoor pic is more suitable :)

More children's decoration.. Pillows!

You may call it throw pillow, accent pillow, or cushion, it's still the same thing.. it's soft, huggable and usually nice to look at.

Feathers For Nest has some new pillows! Made from handwoven cotton fabric, and coloured with traditional handstamped batik. The twist here is that the color is bright orange which is a very fun color for your children.

What's more, the pillows are embellished with fun flannel felt applications, all hand made :)

Now imagine how pretty these gems would look in your children's bedroom, or their playroom, study room, or even in the living room.

I heart throw pillows coz they are soooo versatile!

Don't you think so? :)

Butterflies on Shirt

I made this for my friend's daughter, for her belated birthday present to be exact :p
A plain white shirt with some pretty butterfly felt applications, and not forgetting the birthday girl's name embroidered on it.

Not in the mood to make a birthday card, I just use a tag I bought in IKEA and attach it to the shirt.

I particularly like how the felt butterflies can flap since I only embroidered the center part of them.
So to prevent fraying, I put a note on the back side of the birthday tag *Doh, really need to improve my handwriting!*
