I had so much fun in California, it was great seeing the family again. I love you family! ^_^
While I was visiting I found something in my niece’s room! I found my first Hmong doll I made which I had sent her. I can tell the doll has been played with plenty of time and I love that! I also spotted the Hello Kitty pillow I made from 2012?
I dropped by Minh Phat Fabric Store and GP Fabric in Sacramento and oh my, I just love fabric stores. Something about holding and touching fabric is just so satisfying! A family member told me about another fabric store not far from these two also but I didn’t make it there. I hope to next time though!
The fabrics I picked up are going to be aimed towards my dolls. Hopefully I can start whipping up some again. 🙂 Lastly, my Etsy shop reopens soon! 🙂
Yay! I’m so proud to have all my Lucky 6 pillow’s done! 🙂 My nieces will love them! …I hope. Here are the last 3 pillows. Click here for the first Lucky 3.
Hello Kitty, Pandapple and Chococat.
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? 🙂
