Sew What | The Handmade Mavens


After SPM, you will either proceed to Form 6 or college. Then, you further your studies in universities, yada yada yada. 


Those are just one of the paths leading you to a new chapter. But do you know there are more ways to pursue your dream career?

This week, we’d like to share with you a line of handmade products, done by our alumna. Fang Yee was a Diploma in Graphic & Multimedia Design graduate from our college. She and her two sisters created Sew What.

Inspired by their mother’s sewing skills, Sew What twinkles into various sewing projects such as backpacks, clutches, wallets, and more. Plus, these trendy, handmade accessories are one-of-a-kind! Who wouldn’t want to be unique?

Sew What; a handmade collection founded by Chia Yee, Chen Yee and Fang Yee.
Back then, Sew What was just blog where Fang Yee and her sisters share their handmade work. When they became a vendor in a one-day market in Puchong, they used the blog to introduce and promote Sew What. Since then, they never look back. 

Here are some of the products made by Sew What. We seriously consider splurging on these beautiful backpacks!



Polka dot back pack

We love this gravel shade back pack. Goes well with most casual coordinate!

Floral summer back pack for their lovely cousin






Their fist participation in a market; Mari Market.
How can one not love gorgeous craft like this?



They even made an aromatherapy apron!



Hand-Stitched Eco-Friendly Notebook

As mentioned, there are many useful products featured in Sew What. And did you know that their products are eco-friendly? Fang Yee shared with us that it is very wasteful to throw away all the clothes that people no longer want; some of the fabrics are gorgeous. Therefore, Sew What combines all those unwanted fabric and gives it a new life. Some of the products are made of 75% recycled material. Plus, these three creative sisters love travelling, so their fabrics are from different places! The prices depend on material and size. For a laptop bag, it costs about RM50 while a backpack costs about RM80.

Pinterest Weekly Roundup: 12/4/2014


It has been a busy, yet fun week for us. The new intake has just started on April 7th. And it was joyful to see the new students mingling and get to know each other better. 

We know that many students missed the April intake registration. Don’t beat yourself down, because we have August intake coming right up! And if you register for August intake, feel free to come to our free drawing classes starting from June.

Why wait when you can start early? 

On a whole different note, we enjoyed few songs that peaked up the charts this week, such as ‘Me & My Broken Heart’, sang by Rixton. Other than that, the addictive ‘La La La’ by Naughty Boy feat Sam Smith crawled their way through our spines and minds. Try look it up in Youtube and you will find many great covers of the song. Here’s our favourite:

La La La (cover) Naughty Boy (ft. Sam Smith) - Megan Nicole & Jason Chen


Come on! We have been finger plugging our ears and went ‘La la, la la la na na na...’

And while we do that, keep pinning!

PARADOX : Graduation Showcase @ Straits Quay Convention Center


The word “paradox” speaks volumes. It embodies the unexpected, the unusual, and the extraordinary. A paradox - conflicting ideas placed side by side - creates much intrigue and interest. It stands out and makes such bold and illustrious statements. This is why Equator Academy of Art’s graduating class has chosen to theme their graduation exhibition so. This batch of talented, graduating individuals feel that the theme best describes their spirit and character as well as represents what they each strive to achieve in their respective careers. 

Behind every successful man is a woman, and we at Equator like to think that behind every successful establishment is a designer. The significance of artists and designers in fields such as manufacturing, advertising, retail, and even real estate can no longer be denied as more and more companies seek to include such individuals in their payroll. Graphic designers are especially indispensable these days, for their expertise is much needed in designing and developing of computer games, software, and icons.

The graduation exhibition was held from March 28th to March 30th, 11 AM to 10 PM at the Straits Quay Convention Centre (SQCC), Tanjong Tokong, Penang. This exhibition showcased our graduating students’ final projects from several diploma programmes: 
  • Diploma in Fine Art
  • Diploma in 3D Animation
  • Diploma in Graphic and Multimedia Design
  • Diploma in Fashion Design Technology
  • Diploma in Interior Design
  • Diploma in Architectural Technology

Welcoming speech by President of Paradox, Julia Tan


Speech by principal of Equator Academy, Dato' Chuah Kooi Yong.





These students have performed brightly and won awards during their Diploma studies at Equator Academy.

Congratulations to the graduating batch 113!
