Here’s a short post to brighten up this gloomy Monday šŸ™‚

I just wanted to share with you all my latest handmade creation, her name is Chinkee.Ā  I wanted her outfit to be a simple black dress so she will always be in style, ready for her meetings šŸ™‚

I also made her two necklaces.Ā  One is a key and the other is a keyhole heart that says, “made with love”.

Chinkee is probably the happiest doll I’ve made so far.Ā  Hihi… šŸ™‚Ā  She’s one of the few who has a smile on her face.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My latest handmade project was a hat for an 11-month old baby šŸ™‚Ā  I asked my 5-year old, Crow, to try out the hat. Hehe šŸ™‚Ā  It still sort of fits.

The hat is based on the book, “The Hungry Little Caterpillar”.Ā  Also one of my son’s favorite books when he was a baby šŸ™‚

I had a lot of fun making this hat.Ā  Basic shapes and basic colors.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Late last year, when I joined the Escolta Market, I met this really nice girl who loved Severus Snape.Ā  Her name is Anna šŸ™‚

She asked me if I could make her a Snape handmade doll.Ā  I got excited because I’ve never done any Harry Potter characters before so I agreed šŸ™‚

I crocheted Snape a little wand šŸ™‚

“There is no wand more powerful. It answers to you, and to you only.”Ā  – Snape

It was my first time to crochet a coat šŸ™‚

I’m thinking of making Harry Potter now.Ā  Let’s see.
