Some fun orders this week

I am still on the journey to creat 12 variations of envelope customization and personalization. I think I am quite half way there with about 4 prototypes given away as presents.

Earlier this week, I received some enquiries about making a card case with 2.5mm depth, 8.9cm width and 5.7cm height. After laying out some questions to get more design direction, the customers actually wanted it in my ENVELOVE design. It’s a pretty small case, smaller than my usual card case.
Most important criteria is to fit her cards snugly.

I am already guessing that her cards must be quite precious. I wondered if its to hold a stack of 100 name cards… Turned out its for her tarot cards! She wanted something in maroon – deep deep maroon and surprise her with the choice of thread color. Spotting taste of somebody familiar can already be hard sometimes… For a stranger that I have not meet, and seen the picture… It’s a risk. And I didn’t want to intrude too much into her privacy to discover her taste. Luckily I asked what’s the card case for…

A few months ago, I wanted to make cufflinks with lego pieces. So, I decided to surprise myself with lego mini figures. One of the lego pieces is the Fortune Teller of series 9

I got my answer !

At the same time I got 4 orders for triangle pouch. Nice choices and combination of colors. Not many people go for gold components to go with the leather. Result – vibrant !

Raining season started in Hong Kong, and sky is just gray.

I have been searching for a sky blue color leather, but couldn’t find anything to my liking.

I decided to dye my own color leather. Unfortunately, the bottle holding the dye was leaking, and I decided to hold the tip of the bottle to wash off the dye… It dripped to my fingers…. The phone rang and I have to reach out to my handbag to find it. To cut short the story, I smeared the dye to my purse as well.

Well, an excuse to make myself a new purse, as fixing the color takes more time, and I don’t want to dye it black.

This is a rustic looking piece of leather, and I decided to sew it with multicolor thread. I am quite delighted with the combination.

Special compartment for my mini moleskine book, bigger card compartments (fits up to 3 cards per slot, and even spare compartments for the IDs in different countries.

Oh, fits iPhone. Not that I will change to Samsung, but it fits S4… And all sorts if bank notes and as well coins. Something extra for receipts and bits and pieces.
