Forget-me-not, set to be used on friend’s pajama set.
One of my best friend threw a flash class in my workshop, for her 2 aunts, in teatime today; with just couple of minutes prior notice. A busy day, several works done in quick hands, finally.
One of the aunties are short staying in HK for joining a banquet, and heading back NJ, USA tomorrow.
She might be bored for else shopping but kept saying why not to have such craft class early than this last day of stay in HK.
Not less, two more Pandora alike bracelet with Jewclay prndants also done in class. We were just over busy for taking any photo.
Anyway, a happy busy afternoon.
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.
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.
A fully sequined satin found in bottom of the wastage carton priced HK$20 at Shum Shui Po few years ago, I bought it and kept in somewhere of workshop until I have totally forgotten it.
Until a day I found a wooden clutch handle, I assumed they should get married.
Fate mists, the sequined satin seems disappeared in workshop no matter how many times I tried to grub out old stuffs in every corners. They singlely stayed in the workshop for another 2 years.
Finally they becomes together.
一片不大不小卻表面釘滿小珠片的色丁 Satin 布，是我幾年前在深水埗一個貨尾箱子底找出來，售價 $20。然後，因為不知可做什麼，我把它完全丟到腦後。
I use to put some materials into a tray and try to figure out a hair accessory design; yes, simply says this is best to do mix and match.
My girl had a glance over, said, “what you can do with this piece of bacon.”
Bacon! No way!
Well, it really looks like a piece of bacon, in frank.
I finally remove the bunch of buds and let the metal parts hallow out for the ribbon colors.
我慣常把一些物料隨意堆在一起，相信這是大多手作設計人喜歡的習慣；這是 Mix & Match 最好方法。
