ouch! this story actually happened at the early days of 2011, such a long delay, hihi. anyways, i've got a souvenir order from a girl who was getting married at the end of january 2011. she wanted the say-it-with pencils with a sophisticated packaging in a vintage feeling. i came up with some ideas, but finally we decided to cover the pencils in a granny chic feeling with flowery fabrics and lacy ribbons.
she ordered 125 packages, each with 2 pencils in it. the saying on each pencil was (1) Ari (heart) Lrz are officially married!!, and (2) Ari & Lrz 'till death do us apart..
i sewed all the packaging by myself with some help from my mother. truthfully i am a newbie in sewing and i think this was my new commercial project in sewing. it went smoothly though the sewing machine got troubled at the last pouches, haha.
the girl, Laraz, was satisfied with the result, as she told me via sms: (1) "…Cantik sekali.. I Love it! Thx yah.." (2) "..Iya sudah aku bongkar, thx jg gift nya pokoknya aku suka bgt.." glad she loved it though i was one day late in shipping the whole batch (oups). but i made in on-time :)
it was fun doing this. though a bit exhausting as the deadline was pretty tight. thank you Laraz for trusting k.e.d stationery :) *bighugs*
