cubby update!

 

Mak­ing more stuff for my friend Jessica’s shop. This sim­ple ring was my favourite out of the batch. I called it the robin’s egg.

Love the red and teal togeth­er. The but­ton is iri­des­cent. Even used a metal­lic thread to sew on the but­ton for a bit of sparkle. Was tempt­ed to keep it but I don’t real­ly wear rings oth­er than my wed­ding band.

 

On anoth­er thought, I think I will bring it home if it doesn’t get sold by the end of the mon­th :P

Some cher­ry blos­som rings.

 

Made ring stands for them out of an old birth­day card I received. 

 

Tried some­thing new and made fab­ric cov­ered but­tons. My friend who is the shop own­er said that ear­rings are pop­u­lar. Have been want­i­ng to try mak­ing fab­ric cov­ered but­tons for a while, but haven’t found a trust­wor­thy glue to attach but­tons to ear­ring posts. When I told my friend that she said, “mak­ing dan­gling ones!” 

Great idea, Jess! :D

 

The ear­ring wires came with plain met­al beads, which I swapped out for oth­er kinds of beads to go with the fab­ric.

I also don’t have a fab­ric but­ton mak­er, so I cov­ered the back of the but­ton with some hand sewing, with a wire hoop sewn in for dan­gling.

 

It’s quite a pleas­ant med­i­ta­tive process actu­al­ly. I’m hop­ing to make more. Now when­ev­er I look at fab­rics my mind would think: how would that look on a but­ton?

The spring gar­den brooches were sold out! :D (I only made two, but still.) So I restocked with moon flow­er brooches. 

 

I made up that name, moon flow­er, but I lat­er looked it up and they do exist! I’ve seen them in a park before and called them origami flow­ers because of the way the petals are fold­ed togeth­er. Here’s a video doc­u­ment­ing how it unfolds at night­time. It’s quite mag­i­cal.

Alto­geth­er now :D

 

Real­ly hav­ing fun with this new ven­ture. So grate­ful for the oppor­tu­ni­ty! 

Have a hap­py Wednes­day!
