DIY Wrist Rest/ Mini-bloggers Lunch

Ever saw those really cute wrist rest they sell it in shops? Cute, furry and... EXPENSIVE!

What? $20 for something to rest my wrist while typing? I might as well lay down on my bed and chat using "on screen keyboard" to type (I mean click letters by letters), which.... I always did. =p

(Nonnie's lazy tactic)

So....

I decided to make myself one.

(I know IngSiang, I should rename my blog to DIY Garden)

First what I need to do is to sketch out my design.. the prototype I suppose.



Yeah, it's pig again. What to do, I'm born in year of Boar. That makes me officially a pigomaniac, whatever that means anyway..



Secondly, trace out the shape on to the cloth. You need to trace two in case you don't know. One for the front, and the other one for the rear.


Nonnie at work


Yeah... I wear my glasses at home, sometimes.
And NO, I don't wear contact lenses! My right eye is completely fine that's why I don't need any glasses, unless... I'm only using my left eyes for aiming.



Then, you cut it out.




And stitch them...



Then stuffed the cotton in,




Wa-la~ (Almost) done.




I showed my mum the semi-finished product, and she was like, "Cute oh the dog."

"Ma... It's a PIG. Only pigs are pink... -___-""


And to make it looks more like a pig, I just need to give it some eyes and nose.



Like this,







Not bad huh? At least save me money from buying one..

Actually I don't really need it, just that I was too bored for this holiday and I just want to do something so I don't feel wasted.

* * *


It was only when I placed it near my keyboard then I realised...


"Shoot! Too short liao lah!"



Maybe I should have draw a Giraffe (with long neck) instead..

But it feels just right....

"AaahhHhhhhhh..."






[Add: Bobby says that this is a THIN looking pig]

That is one real good looking thin pig. Great work. Save money too. Can i have it? You make the whole process of stuffing and sewing very easy. Next time if my pants or any clothes got hole, i won't need to go to the indian shop to ask them sew. I got you now, save me $3.

I agree with IngSiang saying that you really should change your spiritual garden to DIY garden.

affy said...

you should branch out your blog by creating a DIY Garden blog.

Nonnie King said...

Bobby : So I'm more like a general worker that save you money than a super-lihai-bao-ka-liao future wife lah?

But but, I like the name "Spiritual" more than "DIY".
DIY means something else for some people you know?


Wardah : Nisah was following me and she needs to go back early for her family.
That's why~
But it's okay.. we'll always have next time.


Iwan : Cute ah? What can I say... Like owner mah~ (sibeh thick skin!)

Nonnie King said...

Rebbe : It is easy, as long as you know how to stitch that is..

Maurina : Hmmm... Must be you "Ayam" Teriyaki Bento!

Affy : Branch out? But I think I'm lazy to manage 2 blogs at one time. Hehhee

Giraffe ah? Let me figure out how to make the patches on the body first.

Sha said...

Nonnie King said...

Sha : Cat? LOL!

Well... I must agree that it can be any animals, just depend on what figures I want to put.


HORNY ANGMOH : DIY IN CRAFTS AND NOT THE ONE YOU'RE THINKING HORNILY~!


Kelly : What's so funny leh?

Nisah and Nonnie crossing the road:

Nonnie: Waahh..so hot ah??

Nisah looks at Nonnie in her sexy top then looks at her three layers of clothing plus tudong.

Nisah: Nya, what you wear right now, is what I am wearing inside
