Classy Bow Ring

Rings have become a popular seller in my shop!

I also had a few requests from my friends and my friend's friend for bow rings too!!

This week I received new ring bases that I had ordered! The bases are flat and don't have this random plate that sticks out like the previous - more expensive - ones. They're perfect!!

I made a batch of really cute rings from them!

These ones are smaller compared to the other ones I made. They're soooo petite! I LOVE IT!!!

If this item is sold out, don't worry! I have soooo many ring bases and fabrics left! Just message me and let me know you would like one and I will make some more!

I understand you may need to enter credit card details to join etsy. If you prefer to purchase outside of etsy, please email me with the link of the item you want and I will send you a paypal invoice from there!!





If an etsy member purchased before you do, then I am unable to sell the item to you. Etsy will confirm and finalize the order so I can not make any changes after it has been purchased on etsy!

Happy shopping!

Are you waiting for tutorials?

Sorry! I haven't been very inspired lately! =(

Hope inspiration comes back after my exams!!!!!!!

Himehood Shop - more items!

I've spent the whole day today making the promo clip and adding more items!!

This time around, I can no longer offer free shipping!!

I felt bad because one customer bought a ring from me and I had to pack it in a dodgey homemade box and fill it with all this foam just so it wounldn't get damaged!! I sent it off but I felt bad that my presentation didn't look too good! She did not complain but I do feel that it didn't look so good when she received it!!

So now, I am charging normal shipping costs. With that said, I can send to you in a much more presentable way and in a proper box!! And I would feel much better!

Check out my shop again for these new items and new price!

I don't normally do this, but I have a bit of spare time at this moment!

A viewer asked how to create a "puffy" look similar to the images below:
She made it seem like an emergency so I think making a video would have taken too long!! HAHA!!

So I quickly drew up how I would have done this!

There are two ways to go about it.

I messed up the order, so I will explain option 2 first as it applies to option 1.

Option 2:
to cut out three pieces (small, medium and large pieces) and as you're sewing, push the fabric together (or "scrunch") under the foot/needle plate of the sewing machine.

You're going to sew those pieces on top of each other to create the layered look. (Line up the top if that makes sense?)

The order to sew would be small, medium then large.

Option 1: As with option 2, instead you sew the middle and large pieces onto a shorter piece of fabric (which would still have enough room for you to fit into as a skirt).

Then! After you have sewn and scrunched the small layer, add the middle layer then large layer without scrunching as you have already done so on the short pieces previously.

These techniques have different outcomes. Option 2 results in the ruffles get wider at the bottom whereas using option 1, you get even looking layers.

Different results but not so obvious!

If you're still confused, take out a ruffle skirt that you own and have a look at how it is done. Turn it inside out, check out the stitching... and if it is old and unwanted, pull it apart to see how they cut the fabric!

That is how I figured out how to sew... I must have been one bored kid!
