Origami : Sakura (continuation)

I tried my very best to fill up the whole tree on my wall with sakuras. However, I only managed to make a few. I think I need more than a month to complete my wall since there are lotsa other commitments at the moment. Gonna update with more photos once I finish it up. <3

Origami : Sakura

In love with this sakura origami by Yuichi at first sight. I always wanted to make something like this but never really have time or chance to do so. However, the instructions provided are very easy and simple to follow.

Here are my first attempt to fold some sakuras. The outcomes were not bad. Gonna make more so that i can have a whole branch full with sakura. can't wait~

Origami : Swallowtail Butterfly

Learned to fold this swallowtail butterfly origami from this website. The instructions was clear and easy to follow. I used some japanese patterned origami papers because I like the pattern very much. I pasted the butterflies on my wall to embellish my tree deco. I am loving it very much and now, I just can't stop staring at my wall. <3

my 1st attempt

the butterfly really matches my wall

Felt Craft: Red Ixora Brooch

I always love flowers. Being brought up by parents who love gardening, has given me chances to know different types of beautiful flowers. I have seen many species of orchids, roses, bougainvilleas and many more other flowers as the results of frequent visits to plants nursery with my mom. But I always attracted to flowers that are small, have vibrant colours and bloom like pom-poms. And since I can't wear a fresh one as brooch to school, I decided to make a felt one. This time, I'm inspired by Ixora.

After I'd done stitching the pinback, I just realised that Ixora only has 4 petals instead of 5 like my brooch. My mistake.. Really need to do some homeworks before cutting felt next time.
Feel like making a Hydrangea brooch in future. Who doesn't love Hydrangea especially the purplish pink one, right?

Felt Craft: Grey Flower Brooch

My trip to Daiso never end with nothing in my hand. This time, I bought a cute grey felt that just reminds my of my rabbit, Moko and made a flower brooch from it.

Moko is the plump grey bunny on the left, which was happily eating the greens when I took this picture.

This is the brooch I made from the felt. I really like the colour which is not too dark nor too light. Gonna wear it to school this week!
