New Wallets

On my mind...
I wanted to make a wallet for myself and found several patterns in the Internet.
a cute one was
but I wanted to have a larger size which is about 4" x 6"
so I ended up making a few of my own.
Because I live in Hawaii, many of the crafts and fabric have an Asian style. I did make a few to represent that style.

                                           Musical fabric with a music charm
                                              shabby chic lace and roses
                                 all wallets open with a metal snap
                                            This one is more elegant with gold and antique blue satin fabric

                                I chose this one, pink, bling and roses!
 This one is so pretty with the gold leaves. the back has a large golden moon with gold   glitter fabric, very rich
                               This fabric is light pink/peach  with pretty roses and leaves, I added tiny pearl trim and lace which is topped off with the lovely rose
This silver/ Grey dragonfly has bling trim and cherry blossom pockets. very nice

all my wallets have 2 pockets and the top has a secret opening!

A Tisket, A Tasket, Goodies for Mom's basket

On my mind...
Mother's Day is bitter sweet. I love my mother but am unable to spend time with her as she lives so far from Hawaii. To show my affection, I decorated this old box and created a clip flower and cuff.
I hope she likes it!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!

Creating Bling Centers

I loved the youtube post by Jennings44 on how to create pearl bling centers. (Shabby Chic Pearl Flower Tutorial) ~ sorry I don't know how to link the video yet :(
However when I tried it was very hard for me to cut the pearl strands into small strips and glue all the large pearls together. I found a short/ fast way to achieve similar results and I wanted to share it with you.

                                           First I cut large pearl strands into 5-6 pearl lengths.

                                   I then glue the ends together to create a pearl circle.

                         Next I cut strips of tiny pearls from their strands (about6-7 inches) and I hot glue one end to a space between the large pearls, facing the strip over the space going from front to back. I then loop/ thread the large pearl circle with the tiny peal strip. when I get to the end, I glue it to where I started.

Next I place a bingy pearl, flower or rhinestone.

I hope you try it out, it is easy and cute.
