I’ve been missing for awhile I know! I’m sorry. 🙂 I feel working night shift is definitely taking a toll on my body…
The two scarves I mentioned in my last post are finished and I’d like to share them. They are also listed at my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in purchasing. Here they are!
If some of you remember my “Nerdy Caydi” for my October collection I actually retouch some bits and pieces and made it into a digital print.
I hope you like her! This pillow is also listed at my Etsy shop too.
I will be doing a small giveaway with Nerdy Caydi on my Facebook Page once I hit 100 “likes”, and if you’d like a chance to get this new Nerdy Caydi, keep an eye out on my page to learn further information.
Have a great day!
Long time no see! >_< Even though I’ve not been updating my blog I have been working on a few things! 🙂 I finished my second Hmong shirt. I made it MUCH longer this time compare to my first one. I hope you like!
I’m very much in love with this fabric that I purchased at Minh Phat Fabrics in Sacramento. So shiny. *_* I showed this shirt to my Mother in Law and she gave me a extra dabtsov or flap thing in the back of the shirt to use. 😀 I will definitely use it for my next shirt! Although I did start to wonder why Hmong shirts have the dabtsov on the back. My Mother in Law says it’s just for decoration but do any of you know if there’s a meaning for it? Would love to know if there is!
Before I left for California, I had been working on my new scarf collection incorporating some Hmong designs. I made one scarf and was planning to give it to my Grandma, which I did! Unfortunately, I don’t know what I was thinking and didn’t give it to her when we were together in CA so I don’t have any pictures of her wearing it. I gave it to my Dad to drop it by her place since I was leaving for home soon already. I hope she likes it. She said it was a little thin, which it is; however I don’t think she knew it is more for good looks. Lol. ❤ Grandma.
Anyway more to the scarves, I am working on them some more, trying to find what works and what not. I have two made at the moment, I just need to finish the stringy things at the end. I plan on listing these two at my Etsy shop once they are completed. 🙂
Don’t think I forgot about my sweet little Caydi! I am planning her next little collection piece as well for November which I will be focusing on this coming week. I can’t believe there’s only this month and December left to go for my Caydi Doll Collection. I feel like I was just creating her yesterday!
I also finished the next piece to my Love Noms Noms collection and will plan to share it once I get a few others done too.
So many projects and things I want to do! ^_^ Have a sweet day WordPressers!
For some reason our backyard has so many rabbits that they inspired me to create my own bunny design. WordPressers, I present to you Caydi Bunny plush!
I actually worked on these all day yesterday and some today. Took me quite a while…I was up to 3am just making these and I still wasn’t done. Well they are done now and I’m very please to share them! These Caydi Bunnies are approximately 5.5x2x4.5 inches and made from minky fabric with a bit of felt. I hope you like them! Find them at my Etsy shop for purchase.
I also now have mini 8×8 pillows of my Hmong Collection also listed at my Etsy shop.
Good night WordPressers!
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!
April showers do bring May flowers…and Caydi’s new pillow!
I used a range of charmeuse satin with a cotton flower print for this project. This pillow took me about 6 hours to make but I had so much fun making it. I had music playing in the background and was just having a sweet crafty sewing session! xP Hope ya’ll enjoy. 🙂
I’ve been working on a simple pillow design for awhile now and finally decided to give it a go tonight. The pillow is based off of a common design found on Hmong clothing, swirls. On Hmong clothing, the swirls are usually cross stitched and then sewn onto fabric. For this project I decided to appliqué swirls with satin and charmeuse. Here’s a sneak peak until I can finalize this pillow better. 🙂 Hope you like the rough draft!
