I wasn’t aware that the Etsy store had sellers from this tiny island as well. It was quite refreshing to stumble upon them. I first came across the delightful Paper Exploits run by Kelly, a Literature undergraduate at the National University of Singapore (she must be a book lover too). I adore her monster bookmarks.
Then there’s saplanet by Lis, with handcrafted products you can make yourself. This crochet doll craftwork is called Amigurumi and looks fun to do. I was attracted by this see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil set. She sells both the dolls and the doll making kits if you’re into exploring your artistic side.
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals or dolls. The Japanese words ami, means crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, means stuffed doll.
I also came across Lily at Lily Pang, who does lovely paintings of owls which she sells as laptop stickers as well. It’s just nice to see Singaporeans exploring their artistic side.
