我的战利品


记得上次跟大家说我对手艺有兴趣吗?这下想和大家分享我这段期间所尝试的不同手艺。你们别以为我是超人,能在这么短的时间做这么多事哦,我是分开做的,而且一直等到今天才让大家看看我的战利品!

My interest in sewing hasn’t waned quite yet, in fact, I’ve been trying all sorts of craft work, from patchwork to sewing to beading. It spanned across several weeks, although now as I put this entry together, it’s gonna look like I was on a sewing/craft-work-high. I have to admit I was, and have taken a very avid interest in this since, because when you actually see the end product, there’s a great sense of accomplishment! It’s like all those hours do pay off! Well, here are some of my proud, made-with-love items for all to see…:)
Hard at work...

My first attempt at patchwork! 我正在学习如何做拼布小包包。

I love this tiny little shop with all the beautiful (but expensive) cloth! 这小店让我情有独钟,很喜欢这里的布料(日本进口的),可是太贵了,做一件上衣还不便宜。

I love this tiny little shop. It has beautiful (but expensive!) cloth, my favourite are those with small flowers! Does anyone know of any place I can get cheaper and pretty floral cloth? 这小店让我情有独钟,很喜欢这里的布料(日本进口的),可是太贵了,做一件上衣还不便宜。你们知道那里有类似的布料吗?

These will eventually be sewn together to make a little patchwork pouch. 这些小布块会拼在一起,做成小包包!

These will eventually be sewn together to make a little patchwork pouch, which I have yet to learn how. *hee* 这些小布块会拼在一起,做成小包包!不过我还得回去学呢,目前只是做好这些小拼布罢了。

I bought this little design from the market while I was filming "Like Father Like Daughter". It's been left alone for a year...这是我在拍《宝贝父女兵》的时候买的,一直没去碰它,知道最近才拿出来。

Almost completed, only without the outline! 差不多完成了,少了轮廓。

Ta da! It's done! 完成咯!!可爱吧!

This is a small drawstring pouch I made myself! It's actually a lot harder to make small items. 这是我亲手做的,看起来很简单,也不难,只是因为东西很小,所以不容易缝。

I used it as a lavender satchet for my car. 我用来装薰衣草放在车里。

This was where I learnt basic beading. 我从这里�串珠做手链。

I made these bracelets! 这些是我做的!

  5. 最近我也有在看球愛大戰..裡面的Rainnie既可憐又可恨,常看到你戴著一條項鍊,那也是你自己做的嗎?是因為很喜歡所以一直戴著嗎?還是造型師的idea?

  11. Nice to see you update again.

    You can sew a lot of stuffs and put them up for sales at charity bazaar. Proceedings of the sales should go to unfortunate.

  27. hello , may i know where did you get the book which you made the pink dress from ?

    thanks

  28. oh. i oso just came across beads work. and i find them very lovely. all kind of beads, string it in a different way and it can be suitable for all kinds of occasions and functions. i look for online designs but yet to try. hee.

    the top is lovely. hee. jiayou.

  29. Can’t wait to see your patchwork pouch. I really don’t know about patchwork but love to see it or HAVE it. TQ TQ!!! muak muak will u give me once you finish???

  30. Hi Joanne, I must say you did really well in that cross-stitch design… in fact, I think it’s vast improvement from your first attempt! 🙂

  31. Hi joanne! I see that you work out alot, but do you go to the gym or exercise without machines? And what kind of exercise do you do to keep yourself so fit?

    Anyway, patchwork is a wonderful hobby and you do have potential in it, keep up the good work! 😀

  32. HELLO JOANNE 😀

    last episode of beach ball babes just ended ! the show’s really very nice ! 20 eps finished so quickly , it’ll be great if there’s part 2 (:
    & i can see that you like craftwork very much , haha!
    take great care !

  33. Hello Joanne, nice craftwork. Although i did sth like that before. but its not as nice as yours.

  34. woah, you’ve got nimble fingers! the stuff you made are nice. i like the pinkie dress which is so sweet. ^_^ haha whenever i do cross stitch i’ll be stuck on it for ages…

    as for the patchwork right, can try asking for pieces of scrap cloth from tailors etc. i think they’ll sell cheap or give for free. or ask from friends bah. there no for need those big, perfect, uncut pieces of cloth rite, since you’re going to cut them up anyway. oh, but patchwork is like so in now. haha do show us your completed product orh. patchwork always gives me the heartwarming feeling~ haha maybe i have the idea that its like the blanket the ah mah/ mummy make for the children… hee =D

  35. Hey! The pink dress is really sweet (;

  36. The blue bracelet is nice=)

    I was really impressed, seeing the bracelets that you made were exact replica of those in the magazines. Ha ha, you’re really good man. I’ve been wanting to d.i.y my accessories, but sad to say efforts were always half-hearted, hehe. I think it’s so hard to start from scratch, like…there are different types of wire cutters, pliers out there to get, no?!! And i’m totally clueless about beading and stuffs…May i know where you learn them?? Solely through books?

    Your attempt at making the dress is good too! Next time, I’m sure you can work on more complicated pieces=) But I do find the dress abit short, heh.

  37. Yorhh“

    *** Muacks ***

    You rawk!

    Love ya for eva!~~

    Love,

  38. I love cotton friend too but never had the time, patience or a sewing machine to sew! As for cheaper floral cloth, you can try the People’s Park market at chinatown..they have some nice floral cloth which i believe will be much cheaper. Good luck!

  46. Rainie, 很想要你戏里时常戴著的串珠項鍊~~ 想问你每次戴在背心里面不会觉得痒吗?还是有穿件tube? 那个造型很适合你,我也很喜欢。至于串珠手链我比较喜欢第一条(黑白银色的)。你的 drawstring pouch 也可以充当手机套哟~ 哇,你本来就这么传统的吗?还是近来越来越传统了呢?我猜应该是后者吧。。。
