I've been working on a variety of things these past couple of weeks. After launching my Chic Boutique range I began working on some gift ideas to add to the gift shop part of my website. Because my mini cushion designs are square in shape they are ideal for square gift items such as coasters and keyrings, so hey presto, after selecting from some of my most popular designs I now have several coaster sets and individual keyrings available.
I reproduced the designs so that they still have a cross stitched appearance - if looking closely you'll be able to see the designs are made up of tiny crosses. I think the make lovely little stocking filler ideas.
I have also created some festive gift sets which include a tree decoration along with the coaster and keyring, all neatly bundled together. Again, the tree decoration has that cross stitch-effect look to it too.
'Precious Pandas' features 4 Pandas surrounded by earthy colours and patterns.
These floral designs are coming along nicely and I split my time between stitching one and designing the next. I'm also working on a new perfume bottle design for the Chic Boutique range too - I'm not sure which will be released first, the perfume bottle or the April kit. Time will tell!
