Double-sided sequinned pattern

Double sided sequinned pattern; on notebook cover, cushion cover, kids wear…become so hot in market. In fact, it’s really playful stuffs indeed.

I bought my nieces small tee; one gets Spider-Man transforming to Captain America; another one from a pinky heart transforming into little pony; both are so cute surely the kids love it much.

Myself, wanna get one; sometimes let’s go childishly thought.

Found one not my favourite colour but cute too; a very big round pattern with a pink heart; or colour ver versa.

Due to the size is really too big I decided to make on my back and almost ensure kids would discover it a game to standing behind me. lol

To have the front not over plain: I made some embroidery with cut-out flowers from a piece of lace.

Done!

Little gift for a new special couple

A new couple just overcome the flood in their house; everything finally settled.

Send them a little gift for their newly fix-up home.

Cloth piece, ribbon, badge Mr & Mrs Potato Head; they are so cute, come from my clearance of workshop; however I am sure my friend who know me much don’t mind so.

Is this right, my dear Mr & Mrs Potato Head. 😉

Mickey Patch-work Apron

A friend gave me a piece of Disney printed cotton piece which she has used her part and this leftover.

The dimensions of each printed pattern seems bit embraced in use.

Then I found I have a double-slip denim dress in my wardrobe, which I am no long cute to be in.

After couple of times trial to utilise the pattern pieces I finally made a “many pockets apron” and host a prize-less game on my Facebook “guess how many pockets here!”

Russian Doll, a DIY tag

Received a facebook tag calling from Ruby, a college alumna, her friend Ah-Yu who is now fighting to a very bad situation of bone cancer.  She needs more courage from blessings for beating the pain from physically reacted in various process of chemotherapy and mentally from the changes from the lost of her beautiful face.  She is a young lady just married not long.

Ruby wishes me to support her thought to make a little thing and send this young lady to make her remaining hope for every another bright day.  If we could invite more DIYers to join this event, we may keep Ah-Yu happier expecting during her days.

Ah-Yu loves Russian dolls, Ruby would like to make this as our campaign subject.

My first time to design something with this topic/theme.  I did some research and thinking to make something easy to carry along and practical for her daily use.

Then, I decided to make a shoe-pouche; for her to keep smiling when seeing this on going in and out clinics.

 

認識的學姐自己才剛經歷一場大病正在處於休養;卻傳來一個愛的召喚——希望召集一些手作人一起為她所認識的一位美女朋友打氣,以一人一心意,為這位名叫阿魚的,正在抗癌的朋友,送上鼓勵,最重要是給予她每天期待驚喜的興奮。她所受的痛苦,以致原本美麗的,剛新婚不久的美顏完全因病而面目全非。最重要的,這病帶給她身體上的痛苦與煎熬,需要無量的勇氣與堅持去捱過;而能令她可稍為在痛苦分心,有源動力抗病,堅強地接受治療;就是接到大家送給她的小驚喜。

我很少以這俄羅斯娃為創作主題,想了很久,終於決定製作一個輕便又實用的,於是想到鞋袋;讓阿魚在這段進出治療診所醫院時能隨身帶,為她勾個微笑。

The fabric is given from a friend, Louisa.  I know she loves handmade stuffs and calligraphy.

a hair clip also be used as a corsage; back by lace with handmade edge-burnt roses with pearls and ribbon, always great to attach with a jewclay pendant; I made a little L lettering by marble-mode pin with a sparkling lilac stone.

Some small pieces of polyester (we generally simply call them silk) fabrics got from a friend’s sampling room, a garment manufacturer in HK.

She wondered if those small fabric swatches are good enough for my flowery making, she remembers some similar ones I showed in website.

Oh yes, that’s a treasure!  Those are really great as nice colored pattern imprinted polyester pieces are really hard to find and meters are not affordable for just few tiny flowery making.

Fact finding there are very less meters in diversified colors or pattern imprinted on local pieces-goods stores’ racks.

From bracelet to earrings set

Get boredom from a bracelet bought from Taipei, it looks a bit old fashioned.

這是一次台北旅遊時所買的手鏈;嗯,看來這款式老了,它已經有一段時日獃在飾物櫃裡沒見過陽光。

Find a pair old-fashioned earrings I wore during nine-to-five.  Must get them a change.

另一雙耳環,在我那些朝九晚五年月中,曾陪我過。要給它們一些改變!

One more combination for more changes, with the entire part.

不止一對,是一套三個組合。
