I'm still here. Hope your weekend was lovely. Mine was great with lots of lounging and quality time relaxing at home.
Remember the collaboration project i mentioned a while back? Over the weekend, i finally got around to finish this big collaboration project, the Les Macaron Purse. And by big i mean a wonderful collaboration with one of my very talented sweet friend, Pei Li.
I guess you know by now that i'm addicted to sweet Pei Li's faux macarons. Around end of last year, i contacted her with a collaboration idea ~ sweet classy purse with her beautiful macarons bag charm. After many exchanged of emails with brainstorming on ideas, designs, searching for the perfect macaron fabrics and materials, the Les Macaron Purse was born.
As with any first time project, there was a learning curve and some uncertainty at times. This book and this tutorial were both very helpful. I tweeted the pattern a little to suit my taste. This is a sweet and simple purse with many inside organization (very much needed). I added a heart shape magnetic button for flair and finished in natural linen trim just because.
The best part though is completing a project i've been thinking about since last year ~ that and knowing i now have another project that will always remind me of my friendship with sweet Pei Li. I'm pleased as punch with how it turned out.
I'm hoping to add this Macaron Summery Purse to the shop very soon. I've been a lazy shopkeeper, but that is about to change (i hope). However, if you are interested, please send me an email at qlinesocuteithurts(at)hotmail(dot)com. I have the macarons fabric (pink and brown) and bag charms in other colors.
Happy beautiful week.
Love to you and yours.
