A and F


I took only one (sleepless) night to make F, but almost 2 weeks to finish A. They must have reached KL by today and I only spend MYR11.90 for their air ticket. Bye bye, A! Bye bye F!

Their badges? Oh, I made them using my quick handmade stamps (inspired by Ciyou's Christmas badges). A and F, respectively means Alysha and Fara (my stepdaughters living in KL). I manage to find the same sock pattern to replace the previous one and the old one will be given to ... "hey Free..it's yours!".

I tried to finish them before the school holiday ended, but I missed the deadline. I had a hard time stuffing the skinny-skinny tail and stitching the "simpson" mouth and ears. Anyhow, I think I did just great (angkat bakul). I plan to sew a vest or shirt, or coverall or scarf... but I think these stripy monkeys look just fine ... naked, right? Well, I lied. I just don't have enough time for more experiment.
