The dress itself consists of two parts; Dress with built in overskirt, and a skirt part. The main dress part is made of cute Japanese print fabric and I embellished it with trimmings made […]

Flower Power Corset

I have made three corsets so far, but I will only show this one, the second. I am also pleased with my third corset but I do not have any good photos of it. This was my first overbust corset and I used a sewing pattern from Simplicity but I modified it much to fit […]

Early machine embroidered projects

When I just bought myself a embroidering machine I had to make things for everyone. I had much more energy back then! For my sister I made a pink shoulder bag with a motif of Raphael of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I did not digitize the motif, however. I bought it online. For mother I […]

Wallet

I made a wallet a while ago using a cute fabric from Japan with fairytale print. I have created the pattern myself for this. I remember I made the coin pouch in a folded design as of to store more coins, but I did not realize it is hard to dig out from the relatively […]

Kawaii backpack

In time for my first Blythecon trip in 2010 I decided I needed a backpack to use for the traveling. I did not want to buy one because all the backpacks I saw in shops were boring and/or juvenile (in wrong way). I had a lot of cute Japanese fabrics and some of them were […]

I began with knitting doll fashion, then I also began to knit other projects. Here you can see those projects. Lace knitting […]

Lolita Fashion

Back in 2002-2004 I was wearing what is called Lolita fashion. (quick reminder; it is a cute and modest fashion, not a fetish nor costume) I made my clothes myself because it was such a hassle to buy from Japan at that time. Instead for making a separate portfolio page for every garment I am […]

Hello Kitty quilt

Back in the 90s I started to become interested in quilting and I joined a local quilting society. There I learned how to hand quilt, and I also learned the importance of being accurate when sewing, which of course set the foundation of me actually sewing well. I started on a quilt with Hello Kitty […]
