What’s Playing In The Background

Now Playing: Wanting ~ Everything in the World Album

How many times did you buy a music album and love every single song in it?

It is very rare for me.

I do not listen to music everytime I work. Recently, I seriously need some music especially when the previous kisslock purse restocks got overwhelming and I had to sew non-stop.

This is one rare album that had me playing the album from the first number to the last and repeat the entire album. Some of the songs got me singing out loud whenever I need to take a break from looking at all the stitchings.

I first took notice of this singer when one of her songs was used as a theme song in a movie. I like her very unique voice and how she sings the song to her style.

I like one particular song: ‘Jar of Love’

This song never fails to make me sing along, together with some dancing to the tune. It’s a really nice song and I have this vision how it should be played when an ice skater does his or her moves.

This album is now available for purchase at all major CD shops.

Share with me what you think after you listen to it.

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.
