Felt price at Penang

I always wish to prepare a starter kit for new crafter so he/she can have a feel of making a felt craft without paying much as I do at the beginning.

My first time seeing felt craft was more than 10 years ago. At that time, I have totally no idea where to buy felt cloth and how to start. After 4-5 years down the road, finally I manage to get some felt cloth from sewing accessories shop and 1 piece of 15cm x 15cm cost me RM2.50 and A4 size was about RM3.50 per piece! I told myself that time, nah! Just forgot about it, the money is more useful in other stuff than making this hobby. By that time, Internet has become very common and more and more people start to upload their hand craft in the Internet. Without fail, on and off I still keep looking at people's work until today.

3 years back, the price of felt came down from RM3.50 per piece to RM2.20 - RM1.70 per piece and at one time it was RM1.50 per piece. Later when the cotton's price shoots up, the price of a felt cloth is back to RM1.70 at market price. It had become an affordable hobby these few years and in the Sunday market, we can see more and more people making it to sell. This is eventually a good sign for me ^^

When I did my research online, I found out the price at Northern and KL are almost the same but eventually there are supplier in the South can give fairy good price for large piece order. Well, in this online market, the price is very competitive. The nett earning is very minimal and we can hardly earn more for raw materials. Anyway, it is still a good try right?

After 2 years running my online shop (to the accurate, the first year was just testing water), I found out that the services which I able to provide to my customer had made them become my recurring customer. Some of them even order from me since day one. Here I would like to thanks to all my customers for their strong support. Hopefully I can keep serving them as far as I could go... ^^

剪裁前的打扫 spring cleaning before sewing

刚刚忙完本季的工作, 下一季的工作分配下个星期才开会讨论, 现在开始想偷懒不做工了,哈哈哈。。。 连续忙足了一个半月, 后期几乎每天加班到10点多, 回到家根本不想动了。手头上欠客户的手作还有几个,我也只能欠着, 真的感到过意不去。

这两天下班回家都忙着打扫和整理家务, 我的家在高速大道旁, 家里的尘埃可想而知的多,我还一个多月内才扫两次的地,整个家变得不忍惨睹。 还好没有缝制任何手作, 不然全部都占了灰尘, 怎么给人送货呢?

乘新一季的工作还没分配下来, 这两天忙着打扫, 以便可以剪裁和缝制客户特定的包包, 免得再让客户干等。 虽说大家不介意, 但道德上也不能让大家等太久。 想看我接下来的作品请拭目以待吧! :)

It has been a long while I stopped making my craft due to my heavy work load. For the pass one and half months, I have been working very hard to complete my office tasks and at the peak of my work load I even stay back at the office till late night. By the time I reach home, I am too tired to do anything.

Now while waiting for my new season's job scope, I quickly do some spring cleaning so that I can have a clean place to do my cutting and sewing. Well, living along highway always a disadvantage, the dust you get for a month is unbelievable! Thank god that my customer willing to wait for me for their order, so now I need to quickly clean up and start making my craft!

Keep my fingers cross, by next week you should expect to see some of my new creations. Do drop by next week for a peek of what am I doing yeah!

呵呵, 无心插柳做出来的, 我个人觉得他像林育群呵呵。。。
有兴趣的朋友请给我留言吧! 谢谢。。

My original intention was to make a cartoonist character but ended with this one, personally I felt he looks like a Taiwanese Boy (Lin Yu Chun) who sings Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" on the Taiwanese singing competition "Super Star Avenue" and became well known world wide now. He was also recognized as Taiwanese Susan Boyle.

Safely reach with the new owner

After a long waiting, finally my chess set has safely reached it's new owner.

My customer just dropped me a message saying the chess set is with her sister now and her sister really likes it and showing off at office to her colleagues! hahaha.. When I was told about this, I was extremely happy as the new owner appreciated it! Well, now I'm sure the chess set will be "protected" ^^ not wasting my effort to re-do so many times to make them perfect! :)

Happy happy!
