Over the past week I experimented with making a custom pair of shoes using an old pair I had. I will need to experiment more to see if I can offer this kind of item in my shop 🙂
You can now buy my items online! http://sourkissdesigns.etsy.com
In the coming weeks I will be reopening my Etsy store and redesigning my website!
I recently had my first commission! A friend asked me to make a travel bag set for his wife’s birthday. She liked her gift! 😀
Fabric is from spoonflower here
Made with cotton gauze fabric that I accidently bought XD
Still trying to get the hang of making these travel bags with the piping around the edges
I’ve challenged myself to try to make at least one thing a day
Super cute retro travel makeup bag
Last Christmas I made my mom a tote bag and now for mother’s day I made her a matching coupon wallet. The wallet was not that easy to make!
This bag was a pain to make but it’s super cute! Follow my Instagram for progress pictures 🙂
I finally got my hands on this fabric (even though it’s only half a yard..) and made this gift for a friend. I plan to make more and different kinds of makeup/travel bags! (Just need to find more of this fabric XD)
I found the most awesome Legend of Zelda fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a while back and bought the entire bolt. Aftwr a long search, I finally found a nice fabric to match. I decided the first thing I’m making is a backpack.
I drafted my pattern by looking at a backpack I owned then made a muslin to test it out.
I tried my best to match the patterns.. not so easy! I used a thick woven interfacing to make the fabric more sturdy. This was my first time using metal zippers; not too bad except when I forgot they were metal and broke 6 needles (haha). Even after messing up a few times, I think it turned out well.
I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make the PokemonGo hats. Iron on transfers are okay; spray on fabric paint however was not. After letting the paint dry then washing per instructions, the paint faded. I really liked the color too! 😦 Next up I will experiment with embroidering the hats instead.
Now that I am taking a break from classes, I wanted to make my PokémonGo avatar’s hat to wear around as I walked around looking for Pokémon. Then I thought, why not make a bunch of them and see if people would be interested in buying them.
Currently I have the one avatar’s design in yellow and red. I will be on offering it in blue as well (since everyone I came across asked for it) along with other custom colors. I am also planning on making other various Pokémon hat designs. I will post updates and work on getting these posted on my etsy store.
