MOSAIC VALENTINE CARDS



beaded love

paper love 


Mosaic is super time consuming but since i did a lot of quilling on my Christmas cards i had to use some teserae for the valentine cards.

DIY..JABOT,UNDER THE COLLAR DETAIL




  1. Make a paper pattern of the jabot.
  2. Place the paper pattern on the fabric.
  3. Cut  your fabric on fold.
  4. Fold & iron.
  5. Stitch to hold the jabot in place.
If you have a sewing machine & you want a detachable jabot you can make a buttonhole band or attach with a safety pin.You can also stitch your jabot to your dress,t-shirt or sweater.

PRIMARY COLOURS










I remember my 1st colour assignment i drew my primary colours with green instead of blue.mmmmh how music can inspire you hehehehe 
  1. double breasted sasha jacket,love the spiral-shaped buttons.
  2. plaid,the timeless print,skirt.
  3. red clutch.
  4. west 31st loafers,i know they look like grandma or "mama wa mboga"  shoes but they are super comfy
  5. my blue belt.
  6. love the detail on the blouse,it has an architectural feel to it.
