Clothing for the Pooch in the House

I have just sent Akiko for her first full grooming, and it's a tad shocking to see her missing that coat of voluminous (but tangled at the wrong places) fur... She's now a scrawny-looking little Bambi...


Coincidentally, I chanced upon Milla Milla while searching for youtube videos on sewing yukata for dogs. It's a Japan-based dog wear patterns shop and they have free patterns for the basic tank and hoodie (It's also a good way to test which size fits your dog better before purchasing any of their patterns).

Between SS and S sizes, I couldn't tell which would fit Akiko better so I made a muslin out of the smaller size first.


As you can see, I did the muslin before she had her fur chopped off. Despite the ridiculously poofy fur she had, the SS size fitted her pretty well.

With that, I made another with a hoodie.


She looks pretty chic and sporty, ready for the hot months ahead!

And yes, I did purchase their Yukata pattern for SS-sized dogs.. I still need to study more dog wear patterns before I can draft any on my own..

Weekly Color #18: Magical Flower?

We've been spotting lots of interesting flowers and plants recently at our nearby park! And here's one of them!


Have no idea what plant it belongs to, but it sure looks magical enough..!


Loving the color scheme for this one!

Weekly Color #17: Colors of Upcycling

I had the pleasure in assisting Agatha from Green Issues by Agy with her 4-session upcycling workshop at a secondary school. In our last session, we got the students to upcycle some bottle and jar caps into charms and magnets.



June Illustrations

I'll blame it on my birthday month for the drastic decrease in illustrations as compared to May....

Weekly Color Theme #16: Donna Wilson

A little bit of throw-back..

Went to the Donna Wilson exhibition and pop-up store a while back and I was blown away by her colorful and quirky creations!

Weekly Color Theme #15: Dreams?


They are like fluffy white clouds.
Beautiful. Sometimes growing. Sometimes fleeting.
It does not matter,
Even if we have become shriveled,
We still reach out for them.

Weekly Color Theme #14: Egg Dish?

A while ago, we brought our puppy to its first grooming session. While the pup was having its spa time, Ed and I (plus Ed's sis) decided to hang out at a nearby cafe for lunch. I ordered this pretty delicious egg tomato dish..


This is the color combination that the Adobe Color app generated...


Which isn't the best color combo out there...

The odd thing was the app decided to give me another combination the second time I tried (both using the 'colorful' option)...


Um.. Slightly more palatable?
