One of the first orders that claimed my attention after the Patches artisan fair was this pair of custom embroidered pillowcases. Commissioned by a friend of the couple as a personalised wedding gift, they feature the couple’s initials surrounded by a floral wreath design inspired by the bridal bouquet.
Fresh from the madness running up to Patches artisan fair on December 1st, comes the Christmas order rush. With not long to go before I close up shop for two weeks for my festive holidays on December 21st, there’s plenty going on. Before I can share any of that however, I’m so pleased to finally able to share a selection of photos of the project that filled many a day’s work pre-market craziness: custom souvenirs for a winter wedding.
Freshly back from an invigorating short break in Italy and France (which I’ll post about soon), I’d like to share a trio of items completed before I left, commissioned by one of my repeat customers – the lovely Marilu Vella.
A little while ago, I was commissioned to come up with some embroidered wall art to celebrate the birth of a little baby girl. Equipped with a photo of her adorable nursery for reference (where it would finally be displayed), I started out with spray painting a vintage wooden frame white, in order to match the decor.
Let the documentation commence 🙂
First Sewing Project Yayy, so my first blouse of the summer is finished! Its made of a pretty little leaf-print cotton with a v-neck pussy-bow neckline and sweet cat-face navy buttons. After a couple of days on-and-off work on it, I finally stitched on the cat-face buttons this morning; and I’m quite happy with it overall 🙂 Save a few glitches along the way, it seems to have come through very well for the first project of the summer (and there will, hopefully, be many more).
