Thank you so much for the puffy pouch tute love!
I'm so glad to hear you guys like it. I've edited
the post a couple times to add FAQs at the bottom.
Hopefully that will help you save time on writing
me an e-mail and waiting for a response. I'll
probably add more FAQs as questions come in.
I've already seen a few pouches made by you guys,
which are so pretty and well sewn!
Discovering the pouches online made my day and
I'm now really dying to see yours next!!!
Today I'd like to show you some projects I worked
on in the past week. This is a flex frame pouch
I made for a custom order. I've 'met' this really
nice girl through my blog, and I feel honored that
she now owns several things made by me. This pouch
as well as the pencil case below will soon be hers.
She loves birds and so do I. She also adores Japanese
fabric, and so do I. That makes it fun to make stuff
for her. Whenever I make things for her,
I try to include as many birdie prints as possible,
and of course, lots of Japanese fabrics.
Pink x Brown = the best!!
There are even more birdies inside ;)
Another project I finished was lots and lots
of pincushions for another custom order.
Remember how insane I was about making
pincushions just about a year ago?
I really loved making those and am so lucky
to have this chance to make more of those.
I have not mailed them off yet, so I don't
want to show all of them but a few.
A great thing about this project is it lets me
utilize lots of fabric scraps that keep multiplying.
Also, it gives me an opportunity to practice
putting different fabric together and see
how they will turn out when sewn.
And making these are so quick. There aren't
so many projects like this that I can easily
make multiple of in a given day.
These pincushions will be Thank-you gifts.
I hope every recipient will enjoy what she receives..!
And guess what I finally started this morning?!
It's silk screening! I'd been meaning to design
some fabric for the longest time. I've had ideas
for the designs popping up in the head but it took
me so long to finally push myself to get the bowl
rolling. Partly I was a little paranoid I might fail
and waste all the materials I've invested lots
of money for.. because I did once. Joe got me
a silk screen kit last year for my birthday. I was too
excited to have enough patience to take a look at
the instruction and completely messed up in the
process of making a photo emulsion mix. And
because of that, I pretty much had to buy a completely
new emulsion kit, which was a lot more pricey than
I expected. Ever since, although I had everything
ready to begin screen printing, I was kinda
reluctant to give a shot again. But I was really
thinking about doing it on the daily basis!!
I'm glad that this time I seem to have succeeded
in making the frame. I'll print some fabric now
(OMG!) and will keep you posted..! Wish me luck!
Thanks for taking your time to stop by!
Have a great weekend!
