Embossed Silk

Today I finished covering this 
sweet Moses basket with embossed silk material.

I used off white for the colour 
and it has three layers of lace.

Here you can see the embossed flowers in the silk.
I am always on the lookout for new materials,
and Dubai has a great choice..

Next on my list was a feeding-cover.
The little flower can be moved to the right or left side.
Just a little reminder on which side the baby's feeding started.

I had a few requests to make a 
baby swaddle..
About one square meter of soft, light cotton
with a small panel of lace for decoration.

I used French lace for the background
and some cotton trimmings.

I love the way it turned out...

I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine..

Little Crown Favours

Today I added a few more favours to my website
These past few months have been great for my business,
I have a friend who was kind to advertise my work on Instagram
and since then my phone hasn't stopped ringing..

Thanks to the great response, I am now thinking of 
moving out of the spare bedroom, where I do all my sewing
and start a small shop.
Maybe in a few months time..

My head is bursting with so many different ideas,
I wish there was an external drive for that,
click and save it for later..

Aren't these crowns cute!
They can be used as wedding favours and for 

The baby pouches are still my best sellers,
and they are requested in all colours.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Two Linen Moses Baskets

This week I finished a few consignments,
first a Moses basket covered with crisp linen and 
a blue silk double bow.

The second Moses basket is also covered with linen
and has gold silk bows..

I tried out some different ways to cover the 
boudoir seat, this time I used lace for the skirt.

The material I used on the seat was bought 
in France, I wish I brought back more..
We usually travel to France with light suitcases
and return with the maximum weight allowed.
We stuff the cabin-luggage to the max including handbags..
I wish that the airlines gave us credit weight and agree to add
 weight balance that we don't use
 on the flight to France to our weight allowance 
on the flight back..
I'll have a word with them...

I love the way these roses wilted, sweet pink
with an edge of gold..

The next consignment was an army of 
baby-shower favours.
Cute little baby prams for chocolates.
They are going all the way to Saudi-Arabia..

All ready to be shipped.

Just showing off my pretty lace covers,
I bought last time at auctions.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Eid Mubarak

Dubai is enjoying a few days of Eid Festivities.
It marks the end of Ramadan.
Add to that the blessing of new babies.
These days I did my best to finish all my orders on time.

This wrought iron baby bed I made before and 
this model will not be repeated.
I do like to change often and introduce new designs.

I love the curtain on this Moses basket,
the lace is so pretty, sadly it is not available any more..

Here you can see the details of the lace curtain.

The same Moses basket without the curtain.

Not to forget the baby pouch to match..

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Two Baby Nests with Piz-zazz

I like that word.. Piz-zazz
meaning dazzling style and flair.. 
All nice words to describe these two cute
baby pouches, I love the colour my clients chose.

Soft yellow silk bows and 
I also used yellow lace under the cream one.
Can you see it peeking out?

On this pouch I used light green silk for the bows
and matching green lace.

Last Friday we participated in the ARTE market.
It was very quiet, I was told that it wasn't the ideal 
time of the year because most people leave the country 
for school vacation.
never mind.. we will try again in a few months time.
Summer vacation lasts here for about 3 months
because of the hot weather.

I hope you have a wonderful week.
