Recycled Paper Pencils

Materials : Recycled paper cut out from magazine or newspaper, 2mm pencil lead, glue, cutter, scissors and rhinestone for decoration.
Duration : 1 day.
Pattern source : My own from inspiration from Etsy's supplies shop.
Comment :
Just another simple, relax and fun recycled project to do. It's like a try and error start up for me to do this project. I was so afraid that it will fail me. However, the end result is so good and I just love the pencils. The texture is so great with the colours and words from the paper. It could be used as well and I'm actually started to use it for writing. If you are interested to make one for your own, just try it out, I have the instruction written in my main blog.

Small coin purse

Materials : Coats & Clerk crochet yarn in white, cotton in beige colour and metal purse frame.
Crochet needle : 1.5mm in steel crochet needle
Period : Begin 01/06/08 and end in 15/06/08
Pattern source : Purse : My own and the crochet lace : Japanese crochet book called "100 crochet lace in 4 seasons".

Comment : Made this small coin purse for my own used. The metal frame was recycled from a purse that already broken. However it's not really well made, a little defeat on the construction area on the metal frame. Well, it really doesn't matter much to me though, as long as I could use it, I don't mind that much.

Shoulder slit sweater

Material : Katia denim yarn in the shade of "Sand"
Needle : 6.50mm straight needle
Period : Beginning of 2008 to End of Apr 2008
Pattern : From Vogue Knitting

Comments : A very easy to make top, however I have took too long to get it done.Reason being I was so lay back on knitting project and was involved quite heavily in making bags for my Etsy shop. Not quite satisfy for the result, the top seem to be too thick and it makes me look very plum when wearing it. I guess I might unravel it for other project in some other times.
