Jewellery Box

Ladies admit it; we all have had jewelleries which have taken over our dressing table space in a mad disarray. Mine have taken over 2 drawers and a wardrobe door! I like all my jewellery on display, so that I know what I am looking for when I am rushing out the door.

This jewellery box is actually a watch box, custom ordered by a client. She wanted some sort of storage for her dozen or so watch collection. I was not sure how to go about designing a watch box from scratch.

So I bought a good sized gift box, it was fluorescent green in colour to start with. I didn’t like the colour, and so I took some pretty blue and white striped fabric and covered the box. I lined the inside of the box with a bit of padding, and royal blue felt lining on top of it. The padding and felt together gives a soft cushy surface to protect the watches/jewellery. The process of covering the box with fabric and felt seemed easy to begin with, but it was so too time consuming.

The box shown in this pic is L 29cm/W 20cm/H 9cm; it comes with 4 round inserts to hold your watches and bangels. Custom sizes are available on request.

Gifts for Baby Boys

Recently one of my friends had a cute little baby boy. I wanted to make something personalised Punch Embroidery for him. And so I got designing this cute little dinosaur vector art. I had a lot of girly designs, but my options were limited when I came to designing for boys. But I loved this idea of dinosaurs. And they were pretty easy and simple to design.

I choose vibrant colours for the embroidery. The actual embroidery was done very fast, but the green background took me 2 days to complete. I did not expect for it to take this long, but it sure was worth the effort, the final product looks so colorful! And the bright red frame complements the embroidery so well. 

The size of the embroidery is A4. Different frame sizes and colors are available on request. If you are interested to make your own embroideries, please proceed here to take a look at my Punch Embroidery Kits
