This week’s Mother’s Day giveaway comes from none other than one of our favorite local handmade brands, Oh & Ah! We wrote about Oh & Ah wayyyy back when (click to read), but the brand has expanded heaps since then. With new products under their legally charming belts, Oh & Ah has proven that a little innocence and a lot of good design sense goes a really long way. We asked them to recommend three of their latest products for those of you who aren’t familiar with the brand, and here’s what they picked:
“Our Bus Series has been really popular among the Lapan crowd. There are three designs available for purchase: bus sekolah (a long yellow school bus for RM79), bus mini (a smaller model in pink at RM59), and our latest addition which is the zoo bus (RM79). Right now, the bus mini is sold out.”
“Another favorite among customers is our Elephant design light (retailing at RM230). These lights are made of clay, and are attached with a lightbulb AND dimmer. We love hearing what people decipher this clay guy to be; some have said monkey, others have thought of him as an odd-shaped man, the list goes on… However, to us he is an elephant!”
“These little guys sunbathing on patches of grass have been on constant repeat through our collections since the days of setting up shop at Art for Grabs. We love them because to us, they represent Malaysia’s hot weather, where so many enjoy a wonderful sunbathing temperature of 30 degrees almost all year round. Now they’re available on easy-to-wear rings, adjustable to fit all sizes. They retail at RM39 each, and are really fun conversation pieces to have on hand (pardon the pun!)!” <—EDITOR’S NOTE: Ellie couldn’t resist these adorable sunbathing dudes, and has bought a few already!

Hey guys, I just got my namecards from Jacqie, and I was so thrilled that I decided to dedicate this week’s DIY Wednesday to making a namecard purse (sorry, no fancy schmancy name, it is what it is)! Very simple project with minimal sewing necessary, you could even glue the entire thing together if you’re lazy. All you’ll need are a pair of scissors, any fabric that won’t fray – I’m using upholstery PVC – and some pins.
Measure and cut your three pieces… the main body of the purse that’s rectangular with a rounded top, one circular piece, and one small rectangle for the middle of your bow.
Start by folding your small rectangle into half length-wise. Sew in place. Then just use your fingers to gather the circle straight across the middle. Use your sewn piece to hold the gathers together, and just sew the ends of the rectangle together.
This is what it looks like once done. Don’t worry about the tab not being perfectly in the middle of your bow as it’s not secured to one another, hence it’s adjustable. This bow can also be attached by the sewn middle tab to a plain hairband for easy glamor.
Next, take your main base and fold it accordingly. Pin the sides together, making sure you leave the overlap cover alone. Place the bow on top of the front of the purse where your overlap flap will be, and pin the sides into a straight line following the base’s sides. Once you’ve got all the folds to your liking, cut off the excess from the bow. Then just sew the sides together, trim any uneven edges, and you’re done!
Okay, now here’s the part you guys will love. I kinda got carried away with making this purse and made a whole bunch of extras… six, to be exact (yeah I’m a tad obsessive compulsive). Since I’m in a giving mood, I’m gonna share the rest with you guys. To stand a chance to win one, just follow us on our new Twitter account and Tweet this post to your friends. You can also RT our tweet of this post, either way is fine by us. We’ll choose the winners between 11am-5pm, so you can keep trying within those hours.
