Uniquely Aznique making a comeback!

I have been extremely busy since the start of the new year, both at the office front and at home with my craft projects under the Uniquely Aznique label.

Ever since the start of this year, I set myself a target to try to use up as much of my stash as possible and to try to make as many items as possible, either to give away as gifts or to sell under the Uniquely Aznique label.

I think it’s time my stash works for me to bring in some extra cash. *grin* 

I think I will be needing a lot of extra cash come the end of the year when a certain purchase we made, God willing, materializes, at the end of the year.

So, this year, I set about making as many Little Missy handbags as possible as my time would permit, at the same time having so much fun playing with the colourful fabrics I had accumulated over the years and coordinating them to get just that right combination.

I finally put up my first Little Missy up for sale on the 4th of March 2014.

Guess what? 

It was snapped up within hours of being put up! Wow! I am ecstatic to say the least! LOL!

To add to my excitement, my friends from school started making orders for my personalised embroidered towels and pouches! 

Talk about taking the right step at the right time! LOL!

Syukur alhamdullilah!

The last 2 months was also my busiest time at the office front, coming home late on most days. So I ended up staying up late almost every night fulfilling the orders.

I am not complaining, of course. I enjoyed staying up working on the orders, and getting reacquainted with Em (my embroidery machine, to those who doesn't know that I call her Em) after ignoring her for almost a year!

On Friday, 21st March, I delivered, well, ok, my friend, Lela, picked up her order for 2 sets of towels containing a bath towel, hand towel and face towel in purple, and 2 single orders of bath towels in blue.

I did not get a chance to personally meet up with Lela to know if she likes my choice of design, *wink*, but she did say that her boys like them. *smile*

The following weekend, I spent fulfilling another personalised embroidered towel order for 2 bath towels in blue and a single order for a bath towel in pink.

I really enjoyed doing the embroidery works for the blue sets of towels as I really like this maritime design of an anchor and a compass. I just love the colours!

They were delivered the end of the week that I finished the order, just as requested by Aini, a friend from school.

I hope Aini will like them as much as I had enjoyed embroidering them.

My next order was for two cosmetic pouches.

Nora had ordered the pouches with personalised embroidery.

I made the pouch a little bigger than the pouch I made before shown at my blog, because I thought that a bigger pouch would be better to put in make-up as some make-up items might be taller and bigger. 

The original size of my pouch is 3 ½” x 3 ½” x 7”.  This new one is approximately 5” x 5” x 8”.

I hope Nora likes them.

Just as I was about to mail out the pouches to her, she made an order for 2 towels.

Thanks, Nora, for your second order. :)

Thanks to Aini and Lela too for your orders! 

More Little Missies will be posted here soon. 

I am just looking for the time to photograph them in good natural lighting.

Do visit again soon.
