My Melody for Adele...

After all the drama and headaches last week, It's so good to be back on tracked working on positive things.

When your head is still drifting in outer space or thinking multiple things at the same time, your hands get carried away stitching non stop but you head thinks nothing but your work. So when you're in that moment when you finish your orders, you wrap them up and pack them so that they are ready to be mailed out, you realize that something is completely wrong. So ! look at the photos again to make sure the right orders and being mailed to the rightful owner and...OMG GUYS! I forgot the little pearl beads and flower sequins on the key chain! No wonder It looked so plain! But no worries, Angeline! It's fixed now!!! So lucky I was still at home but I was literally on my way out the door! hihihi..

Here's an adorable banner made specially for baby Adele! Thank you, Angeline for you lovely custom order and congratulations on the arrival of you new baby joy!







Wishing you all sweeties a wonderful weekday ahead!

WIP - Monogram Hoop Art

A messy but beautiful thing to see! I'm having such a productive week and how about you? I'm done answering emails, contacting customers, restocking and finishing up orders <3

This adorable hoop, and another one that I'm currently working on, is for my dear friend, Carrie. Two new hoops with two new different themes that she will be giving to one of her friends as gifts. I have a couple of hoops left before my entire stock run out and most probably won't be restocking them, so my embroidery hoop art are only here for a short period of time more like a yearly special kinda thing.

I'm finally making use of all these wonderful buttons that were gifts from "Paper and String". So in love with them! Thank you, Sarah!
If you want to purchase these beautiful and fun buttons, please go ahead and order it from her online craft supply store at Paper and String. You will be amazed how beautiful her shop is!

Little Miss Frog Tutorial

Hooray for my first tutorial ever! You guys have been awesome.. thank you so much for the loving support that you all have been pouring on me. Here's a lovely and super easy tutorial as a thank you gift for you all to make! Hope you like it!


Materials:
馃崺 Universal glue ( I love using UHU glue but you can also use hot glue)
馃崺 Main felt for the frog
馃崺 Felt scraps for the tummy and cheeks
馃崺 A pair of round black beads ( I used 2.5mm beads)
馃崺 7cm long of 1cm satin or polyester ribbonto match frog
馃崺 8cm long of 3mm satin or polyester ribbon for the bow
馃崺 Key ring
馃崺 Lobster claw (optional)
馃崺 Water soluble pen
馃崺 Polyfil

Step 1.
Print the template located at the end of this tutorial. Cut your pattern pieces and lay each one of them into the chosen felts.


Step 2.
Before we start to stitch all the parts together, mark down the position of the eyes using a water soluble pen. Then lay the tummy and cheeks and applique stitch. Make tiny stitches for the eyelashes and nose. Make a tiny fly stitch for the mouth and ,finally, a small cross stitch for the bellybutton.


Step 3.
After stitching the details, It's now for the fun part! You start by combining both body cutouts and blanket stitch them together leaving a small entry for the polyfil. Lightly fill the body then close shut.


Step 4.
Position the ribbon. Apply a small amount of glue to secure it if you wish.


Step 5.
Sew both head cutouts onto the body. Blanket stitch all around leaving a small entry for the polyfil. Lightly fill then close shut.


Step 6.
Blanket stitch the arms and lightly fill.


Step 7.
Sew in the eyes.


Step 8.
Glue the arms and ribbon in their position.


And you're done! Congrats! You just completed a lovely frog key chain!
