WordPressers, I present to you the newest addition to my Hmong Pillow Collection, Hmong Boy! (Don’t you love the names I give to my pillows?) >_<
Compare to my very first original boy version, I didn’t change to many things but added more color to it. Hope you like. 🙂
Find this pillow at my Etsy shop.
A few posts back I mentioned possibly designing another pillow for my Hmong collection, and I did! Hope you like. 🙂
I also have one more pillow to share and hope to have it up by tomorrow. =]
Good Night WordPressers!
Pillow number 4 of 6, Hello Kitty!!!! This pillow will be going across the country soon to reach a niece of mine. I hope she loves it!
I was a bit nervous about making Hello Kitty due to the fact that Hello Kitty is so popular and who doesn’t know her?! Any Hello Kitty fan can easily pick her out from the crowd and knowing this, I was afraid of making a mistake with her eyes and nose placement. The smallest misplacement could totally throw her off. Oh yeahhhh the stress was on. >=O However I think the final came out pretty good. I was very pleased with the finish pillow.
I had Google an image of Hello Kitty and used it as my layout. I used a combination of minky, velvet and felt fabric to finish the pillow. I also used my new Gingher scissor and serger that the Hubbie had got me this past week. The scissor is a bit heavy and uncomfortable but very sharp and good for corners. The serger as of now intimidates me because I’ve not learn how to thread it completely yet. O_O It will take some time. 🙂
Later on today I will be working on pillow 5. What do you think of the final pillow? 🙂
Been planning on my next pillow and here is a sneak peek!
Planning on getting this pillow done and completed before March ends. Can you guess where I’m going with this? 🙂
Good night WordPressers.
Okay! My final post for tonight before I head to bed. My newest pillows were made the other night and yesterday morning. I believe they are my cutest yet. Yesterday after showing it them to my husband, he told me I should definitely give it a name! Giving it a name would be a great idea, but what?
This morning I woke up around 7am from a strange dream. I laid in bed for a while just thinking about it and before I knew it I was debating if I should try to sleep some more since it is my last day before going to work again or should I get up and research names for my pillow. Hmm…the questions in life. I got up!
I surf the internet and came upon some beautiful names but none of them seemed good enough. After messing with letters I happily settled with Caydi. Everyone, I’m pleased to introduce to you, Caydi!
Image 1 – My vector image I created. Image 2 – My first try from the other night. Caydi is quite wrinkly I must say! She took me about 6 hours to make. Image 3- Caydi made yesterday morning, roughly made in about 4.5 hours.
They are both 16×16 and I’m very happy with the outcomes. I am thinking about making a pillow for every month but that’s just a thought!
In 2006 I created and designed a little “doll”. It was actually just a digital piece of artwork but I wanted to share it on here. I’m sharing it because at the time when I made it I was so excited just to make it. That’s how I feel about my sewing right now. It’s exciting! My doll probably took me a whole month to make. I drew it, vectored it, painted it and repeated the cycle over and over again. After working on it for so long, one day I felt I had absolutely nothing else I could do for it, and I called her finished. I was so proud of myself. 🙂 Oh yes, and then I named her Elly and here she is. Isn’t she sweet?
Lately I started thinking about her again. To this day, I feel like she is my greatest accomplishment yet in artwork! =D I want my sewing to be the same. I want to keep pushing myself to see what I can make!
