I've done it

Finally I've done it...:D. Few months back I bought patterns from Etsy and one of them was baby frock with smocking design. The pattern was fab and I badly wanted to try it, but I've never done smocking before. And ne day I got this perfect fabric which I thought will be good for my 1st trial so I just cut it out according to the pattern, read and re-read the instruction carefully...and after lots of un-pick moments here is my 1st ever smocking...*LOL*...Hope you enjoy it..:D

The frock...
please dont mind the dirty wall. Been trying to clean it up but somehow my sons manage to write something on it again and again...

The detail
I think I should've used more strands..I really have no idea about this.

So that's all for today.....have a great weekends...~_*

What I've been busy with

Well, I haven't written for few days. Been little busy with few projects that I have and yesterday got a good news that I get a stall in a craft show here. It's quite difficult to get one here unless you have known people who will kind enough to introduce you to the organizer. This one Ava aunty had done it for me. Thanks a lot aunty..:) so now I will have to get my sewing machine running full speed... are few things that I've made and managed to take photo...frankly I'm not very good with this photo thingie..;P...

This small pouch I made for a friend. I embroidered it my self with design based on a book "The beginner's guide to freestyle embroidery" by Christina Marsh. I added few leaves and dots here and there. The fabric is upholstry raw silk fabric. The color is pastel green. I hope it shows in the photo..;)

this is the original design

This one I did the embroidery based on our old pudding bowl..:D. I wanted to to it for along time. This is only my trial. I'm going to make it again maybe on silk or linen (for napkins??)

Last week was my friend's DD 5th birthday. So I made her this pinafore and added monogram of her initial and put on a little roses there. The roses are readymade embroidery applique....

Here is the detail. Oh and I did button hole stitch all around the armholes & neck lines....isn't cute???
