Fabrics Hunting day!

I love hunting for fabrics.  It’s fun and exciting but sometimes it can be frustrating too, like when you’re visiting different shops and you still can’t find the right fabrics for your project. That’s when you need to be creative with your designs and have a great eyes to spot for different fabrics that can substitute for your project.

I have several favourite fabric stores that I get my fabrics regularly. I also know what their specialties are so that it will safe me a lot of time from running around sourcing fabrics from stores to stores. I can just go to that shop and the fabric is available right there. A great tip for you is to get to know the people who work there, if you build a great relationship with them you will always get great helpful service.

So colourful and beautiful ! Golden Goddess

The Making of the Masks

We had lots of fun making these masquerade masks for this coming Queen’s birthday ball on Sunday 9th June at the Fairmount Resort Leura. As you can see the masks are embellished with Sea creatures and diamante. This year’s theme is ” A Water Fantasy”.  So Neptune is the ruler of the sea and his protectors are the warriors.

Here are some of the photos showing the making of the masks. I will share with you the outfits at the later stage.
