PIPIT 3rd Anniversary @Annexe

It was a fully-planned Saturday yesterday.

First yinyin & I went to Craftworld @SS2, then we off to Central Market by lrt.

This time PIPIT was so crowded, compared to last year. I didn't have the mood to buy anything, so I just strolled along for a few times. However, seeing these things and people is inspiring~

suitcase exhibition

Mari, the Japanese artist. Her stuffs are cool~

I was planning to go to Macy @Petaling Street to buy some sewing stuffs, but too bad it was raining, which will make walking around a bit difficult.

Yinyin left me & chenyee then, so we both went to MV, just for Kamdar & Artfriend.

yeah, bought these fabrics for my next sewing project! so happy~

DIY: Book binding

I learnt the technic from my form 3 art teacher, which we all did a book binding as one of our art project. It was fun! and useful, too.

This is my 4th handmade book.

Just collect those used school exercise book, tear out the non-written parts (need a few books to get enough thickness). Clip to hold them together, and nail holes along the binding side. Pull threads through the holes to hold the papers together.

Use any hardcover paper, which here i used magazine cover. Cut to the size of my book.

...and wrap up with favourite wrapper. I usually use magazine to wrap. Obviously, this time i use Subway's sandwich wrap to make the cover. Of course, it's clean. ;P

Combine them together by sticking a paper on both.

And I save money on buying notebooks. =)
