Pretty packages

Call me a perfectionist but I like detail. When I was first thinking of making these signs my mind raced all the way to the other end and imagined the receiver opening this special gift. What would it feel like? look like? Was it going to be earthy? modern? feminine? masculine? neutral? hand-made? How about hand rolled translucence with hints of modern earth? I think I like the sound of that, even if it is a little OTT.

Sneek peek

This is the beginnings of a new girls sign I have been working on. Soft mauve background that is textured with little dots, pure silk pink lettering and white spotted tulle pom poms.
I had this silk colour picked to be used with the floral background but it was a little pale - I'm very happy I get to use it here. What do you think?

For the Girls...

The girls sign features a Japanese floral cotton background and beautiful purple pink linen used for the name and flowers. It also features hand stitching detail. You can meet little Poet over here at Che and Fidel. As I mentioned in the previous post a website is on its way. But if you just cant wait until then to order one, simply send me an email with the name (or word) you would like and I'll be in touch. Each sign is $130 plus postage and takes about 2 weeks. I have also just made an Etsy listing here.
