I’m determine to make this engagement as personalise as possible!!!
I manage to squeeze some time in over the weekend to work on the felt flowers and my guest book amidst my super duper busy schedule. Of cos, by doing so.. I kinda neglected the work assignments tht I’m suppose to submit this week for my visual comm class :(
So here’s what I’ve been up to…. Started with my guests book and then later my felt flower trial version to see if its do-able without any formal explanation or training from the guru.
The Guests’ Book
Another page from the book… Yes! These will be some of the many decorated pages that you will be signing and leaving your mark (well wishes and blessings) on. And for those of you who prefers to sign on a less complicated or flowery page, I have decided to leave a couple of pages empty for you to have your “Moment of Glory” :)
Here’s another ‘fun’ inspired page… Pictures were taken out of fun while waiting for our lunch.
I guess I could have done more…but I tend to be abit lazy at some point..and then I would try to cut down on the steps to create a more awe-worthy piece. Anyhoo…i jus love the cute trinkets of cupcakes, biscuits and ice creams I got from Daiso. They match this theme and colour so well! In fact I was actually planning to use these as add-ons for a handphone cover design….but I just couldn’t resist putting them on this page. hehehe….
Felt Flower – Trial version
Then I thought since I tried the easier ones…why not I try re-creating the ones I saw on Princess Lasertron’s website….of cos…she is the guru…and only hers will ever be the good enough and awe-worthy. But no matter what….I was still quite excited to give it a shot and see what my outcome will be.
And so….I cut out two pieces of felt from the template I free handedly drew….and then I used embroidery threads to sew on some decorative stitches…….on and on I sewed….I must add that this is a very tedious and tiring pcs of work…and I kudos Princess Lasertron for making this a business of hers….It is one hack of a hard work!!! I dunno how she do it man!!…because it took me 2 nights to finish sewing just piece of this…and its not complete when its done…cos this is only the base of what is more to come after.
I sewed…..and I sewed…..
first night and then the second night…….
Now that I am done with just the bottom -.-”, why not I try re-creating the fillers I saw online. If only I could create those ones…. (I wasn’t very confident and sure if I could do it).
I did it!!! I manage to do something that looks abit like the fillers….tho not exactly like the REAL Princess Lasertron….cos mine has uneven number of petals….I accidentally sewed on 11 petals…I dunno why. So my flower looks rather uneven. And since it was my first attempt, the bottom part of the flower did hold to well, so the button and wire seem rather lose and flimsy…gotta work on making it firmer.
And I was feeling rather confident at that point….thinking since I could do the one above…I could do ANYTHING….muahahahah! (the doctor evil laugh). Thats when, I eagerly took out my needle and embroidery thread and started sewing and sewing…..
and Yes! I created my very own felt flower with decorated stitches, jus like Princess Lasertrons….. one can only imagine how happy and excited I was!
At that point I wish I could do a short internship with her and learn what ever I can from her and improve on my creativity. Its crazy….yes i know…especially the fact that I am no where near the U.S. … jus a dream…never fear to dream big…. :)
Who made it happen?
Alright…enough of what I have achieve and all….. I shall not fail to mention how loving and patient and helpful Jono has been throughout this who experiment. He has actually given up his throne and offered to clear up his “Personal Space Zone” to allow me to shift my Mini Factory over.
So sweet of him to do so….. because I was seriously getting bad backaches from working on the TV bench by the bed….
We spent the weekend, clearing up the room and packing my factory supplies into boxes so that I could stack them up near the desk and reach for my supplies as and when I need em.
Our Mini Factory (as he calls it)…hahaha….well, I couldn’t have done any of this without him and his full support. It makes me realise how lucky I am that I am about to marry such a sweet and loving guy!
