    A little pin cushion

      Who doesn’t like peonies? And who doesn’t like pin cushions? I know I’ve covered pin cushions before but here’s another super simple and easy pin cushion, even for a beginner! We were terrible with pins in the sewing room- plenty of pins where to be found on the floor. Though I’m pretty sure Taufiq would tell you that it’s…

    A little world

    Call back the search parties! I’m here! Tentatively dipping my toes back into the big Blogging world, I’m bringing you a little felt version of the  world… You may remember my post from a while back on our wedding anniversary scrap book, Tree and I had decided not to buy each other gifts to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted to keep anniversaries…

    A little walk down memory lane

    When our first wedding anniversary started looming I started to panic about what to get Tree. I pondered over gifts and searched the internet for inspiration but all I found were variations of the standard ‘gifts for men’; watches/wallets etc etc. Each of these had a hefty price tag and lacked the personal touch (unless you got it personalised in…

    A little jewellery stand

    Something a little different today! A long while back I got asked how to store pretty hijab pins in a decorative but practical way. I’m a big fan of displaying jewellery as a decorative pieces (my mannequin is currently displaying half of my necklace collection!), so was excited about taking up this challenge. I’ve also been itching to use the…

    The little spider web

    I recently got a few new readers (yay!), including one of my friend’s mum! She made a special request for ribbon embroidery tutorials- so here I am- uber happy to oblige! Unfortunately I’m a bit squeezed for time, so I only managed to do spider web roses and having left my camera at home, I had to use my phone. So…

    A little bit dotty

    Just before the summer I got the idea in my head that I wanted to learn Arabic calligraphy. A couple of years ago I did a bit of research and found out that there’s a lot more to it than first meets the eye. It’s not just about curling letters weaving out words of prayer- there’s a very exact science…

    A little pin puff

    Crafters use an awful lot of pins. Hijabis (someone who wears hijab/ headscarf) use a whole ton more. As one of both, can you imagine the amount of pins I have lying around? And when you use pins every day, having to store them in those pesky pin wheels is a real pain…especially when you’ve got one hand over your…

    The little revelation

    Hmmm…I feel like there’s a theme to my last few posts and I’m afraid the theme is going to continue! Don’t worry, wedding season is soon to be over in this little pomegranate’s world so hopefully I’ll be breaking out of the box some day soon. P.s. WordPress tells me I’ve had my best day for followers since my last…

    A little bit of pastel and pearls

    Shh… I can’t tell you who this was made for… or why (look out for a future post) but after finishing it off- I can’t help but share it with you! So, yes I’ve posted on memo boards before (http://thelittlepomegranate.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/the-little-memo-board/) but this time its a quilted memo board! Oo-er. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about: rather…
