[Handmade Gifts]: Lavender Love Hearts

BLOG_STRIP-lavender-hearts-3-WEB Adding a few more of my lavender ‘love hearts’ to the collection. These are smaller in size that would be perfect to have hanging in your wardrobe or to adorn your home with.  They could even vintage-inspired occasions like tea parties, bridal showers or weddings. Perhaps even stocking fillers for Christmas? The options are endless! ;)  Anyway, I’ve listed them up on my Etsy shop where they come as set of three and are currently available in pink vintage floral fabric but I can have them made in different fabric, on request. Do take a look and let me know! xxBLOG_STRIP-lavender-hearts-4-WEB

 

[D.I.Y. Gifts] Personalised / Made-to-order cushions for little’uns

I’ve been busy practicing my sewing skills during my spare time especially since the last little lavender cushion was received quite well. And despite my hesitance, I’ve been encouraged more and more to actually start selling them.  So before I do, I’ve been playing around with designs, styles, materials, sizes, etc to get a good feel for what i’d like to sell and in turn knowing what design templates to create in the spare time I have….not to mention sharpen up my sewing skills even further! So here are two that I made and there’s two more on the way!! Seeing as I LOVE typography and now sewing, I’ve been trying to collaborate the two into the designs – keeping them simple but bespoke. I designed the type using various design softwares and then use that as a template to cut out the appliqués which I then hand-sew onto the fabric panels that make the cushion. (FYI – all the fabric used here are premium 100% Cotton) When the panels are machine stitched together, they are stuffed with polyester filling  (I can add lavender if requested) and finally hand-sew them shut. So then – what do you think folks? Is it a “yae or nae”? Would you buy these for your little ones? :) Or they can be used for Baby Showers too? I’m pretty pleased with them but I would love to hear what you think of these too (I have a couple more to show by this weekend) and always welcome any tips if you have any! Thanks!! x  BLOG_STRIP CUSHIONS3 WEBBLOG_STRIP CUSHIONS WEB BLOG_STRIP CUSHIONS2 WEB
