Start With A Kiss

Posted on

This is the longest period of work in progress I have ever experienced.

I think I took almost three months to complete this handsew kisslock purse.

It is highly challenging to do sewing these days when I have to run the showroom and take care of the back office too. I am definitely not complaining about being busy in the showroom. I am glad to have your understanding when I took a little longer to complete your pre-order kisslock purse.

Polka dots print fabric is still my number one love. If I come across other fabric prints that catch my eye, I will include that fabric print in my current collection of handsew kisslock purse. I will be working on restocking the sold out kisslock purses. Head over to place your order.

I will be working on a new purse shape.

And a new DIY project.

Wish me luck.

Cheers,

Hello Pink Berries in the Green Field!

Pink Berries in the Green Field Kisslock Purse

Let’s say hello to Pink Berries in the Green Field!

I had a fun time working with polka dots print fabric when I produced Happy Dots Kisslock Purse and Happy Dots n Mickey Kisslock Purse. These two kisslock purses were a sell-out and very well-received. There are so many awesome people who love polka dots as much as I do!

Off I went, in search of new fabric prints last week. The choices that are suitable for making kisslock purses weren’t many. I have my own set of checklist when it comes to selecting fabric prints to make kisslock purses. This time I chose to employ a thread colour for the kisslock purse frame that is not matching to the fabric background colour or even close to the frame colour. It was either pink or green. I find the green thread on the frame more refreshing and unique. Plus a green inner lining. What do you think of the colour match?

I will be working on more kisslock purses in this September. Maybe a bigger purse or a clutch bag?

Stay tuned.

Adding Queenbels

Happy Dots n Mickey Kisslock Purse

The ‘Queenbels’ label wasn’t intended for this kisslock purse I handsewn.

When I started Queenbels, I wanted to carry my own apparel designs. Things did not turn out excellent and I had to shelf the production plans.

When enquiries started flowing in on my 2nd mini DIY project, I think I should put these labels to use if I am going to put this kisslock purse up for purchase on my webstore. Sewing on the ‘Queenbels’ label is a tiny proud moment for me. 

I am not claiming any originality on the purse shape. I shared previously about how I learned to do this from a crafting book. With the sewing technics learned, I think and decide the fabric prints I want to use, the inner lining I should match it with, the most suitable padding to use, what kisslock purse frame to put onto the purse and what thread I should use to sew the entire purse.

With all the above thinking and making process, I am proud to say I produce this kisslock purse, under the ‘Queenbels’ label.

Once again, thank you very much everyone, who has already made a purchase on the Happy Dots n Mickey Kisslock Purse.

Thank you very much for your support.
