miss smockie

I’ve been working on my smocking skills using my sewing machine. Created a simple clutch or wristlet using basic smocking.

Here’s some custom clutch I made for a friend.
Named this clutch design Miss Smockie 😛

Miss Smockie - sweet roses

They measure 7″ x 4.5″
Inside is just a simple 1 pocket, fully interfaced for durability. I tried using heavier cotton or linen as the lining fabric, since the outside I use lightweight cotton.

Miss Smockie - tiny tulips (custom order)

When I have time, I’m going to make some for the shop 😉

I’ll be going for my annual holiday to Chengdu next week, so this could be my last post until I get home in November !

ROSES ARE BLUE ~ etsy treasury

I simply love blue roses..it gives me the vintage + modern feel {if u know what i mean…}, especially when the creator combine modern elements with the blue roses.

Here are some of my favourite picks from etsy. Such a sweet combination on elements with blue roses.

*new* Evy purse

It is a simple purse that will fit loose change, driver’s licence and even a small mobile phone.

evy purse - brown song

“evy” stands for “everyday” … because when I made them, I was thinking of using it for my everyday shop & run (maybe i forgot to buy bread, or there’ no more butter in the fridge!) activities… just tuck in some cash, car keys and driver’s licence when I need to take a quick run to the shop!
