Beads, Buttons, Ribbons, Oh my!

I found some fun stuff on a recent trip to Malaysia 🙂 Incidentally, I didn’t go treasure hunting for souvenir items as any normal, sane tourist would do.  I rummaged amongst the aisles of a DIY shop instead and found these ~

A handheld sewing machine!

Now why would I buy this when sewing is a siren call that I am absolutely deaf to … ? Or, am I? 😛 I saw it way down on the bottom-est rack and it was quite cheap so I put it in my basket.

I don’t know how to use it. There’s no manual, or spare parts, we just tested if it would come alive with batteries 🙄 Maybe its purpose is to inspire me to sew or maybe it will become a craftsy paperweight.  It looks promising, let’s leave it at that for now 😀

A paint by numbers kit!

I was inspired by my daughter’s and when I saw this at a low price I didn’t hesitate ❤

And here are some lovely ribbons, beads and buttons ❤

IDK, again, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them but I’m thinking I could use these for my fashion doll clothes.

As well, I was inspired by a lady somewhere here on WP who collects buttons.  So I’m starting my own collection 🙂 ❤
