inaku Label Trial

i n a k u
yup, that's my handmade suppose-to-be-label name.

Found this tutorial for a quick label some time ago, and I tried to handwrite using permanent fabric marker instead of print on transfer paper (read: I don't have ink transfer paper).

... hmm not a pretty sight :p

really should consider about purchasing those transfer papers!

for Teachers with Love

My friend ordered these for her kids to give on Teacher's Day.

The bags are made of fabrics from Ikea, tenun Troso (handwoven) and batik. Can you guess which is which? :)
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to make something for my kids as well..

Blue Bag - remake

My friend saw the blue bag I've made some time ago and asked me to remake it for her.

Just between you and me, I didn't put any lining in the previous bag :p

But I sure make it for this bag now :D

Handmade Space

I drool over these pretty organized craft rooms and always dream of having the same space as those beauties.

images from Modish: HANDMADE SPACES
Unfortunately I'm not that organized, since I find my craft room tidiness is the hardest to keep up (apart from the boys' room, ofcourse).
