The Perpetual Spring Collection Revival!

I had initially planned to launch these updated and new pieces last week, but if you’re following my Instagram, I got totally derailed by the TraceTogether token! I started making cosies and simply could not stop, until now. I told myself I will not touch another ball of yarn until I get this done!

So I did! And decided to have some fun with it while I was at it! I found some old photos of the previous versions so I decided to do a before and after with 2 of them.

But first, Tulle Princess!

This is a Perpetual Spring Luxe piece, complete with a girly touch of tulle! Which girl doesn’t fancy a dreamy floral piece?

Tulle Princess in Nude Beige (SGD$42) is a neutral and versatile piece which can be dressed up or dressed down, okay it might just be on the dressier side but still great with casuals! This is a tweaked version of the one I posted in my previous post.

Ivory Rose!

This was “Pretty as a bride” first, before it became Roxy Rose. I decided to name it Ivory Rose (SGD$39) as it sounds more simple and well, who was Roxy?

The current version of Ivory Rose.

The Roxy Rose then —–>>> Ivory Rose now.

A really old photo I found of Sherlyn wearing The Roxy Rose!

Black & Blue

Last but not least, Black & Blue! (SGD$39) Okay I didn’t change the name for this one because, you really can’t deviate far anyway.


Black & Blue then and now.

I have lost count of how many versions this piece has gone through! There was also a felt version of this. And now I’ve brought it back and “updated” it again! Unlike the previous version which had a raw edge blue flower, this version consists of 3 handsewn fabric rosettes and 2 singed fabric flowers, one black and one blue. 

Which version do you like better?

If you’ve been following The Perpetual Spring Collection all these years, you would have noticed that I lowered the prices of the pieces (Ivory Rose & Black & Blue included) and I thought I would share with you why I decided to do so…

When I “rebranded” to “Le Petit Cadeau”, we were pretty much in a terrible state no thanks to Covid19. With most people taking pay cuts, losing their jobs and struggling to hang on to their sanity, I wanted to make my pieces more affordable to everyone. After all, being in a pandemic situation doesn’t mean we should stop dressing well and wearing things that make us feel good about ourselves, right? The process of making them really makes me happy and getting messages from you when you have received your orders makes me even happier! I want to spread that love and joy as far as I can.

Remember, you don’t need to dress up for anyone but yourself, and we all know wearing floral pieces kinda makes you that much happier for some reason. :)
I’ll leave you with my latest stop motion animation short video!

What’s the deal with “The Girl Next Door”?

Over the past few weeks, my Instagram feed has gone crazy becos of one thing, The Girl Next Door. So….. What exactly is the deal with this girl next door? Who is she?

Well, it’s not exactly a girl but it is what I named one of my designs. The Girl Next Door. The Girl Next Door isn’t someone who is obsessed with shiny rocks, but instead down to earth and accessible, although at times charming to the point of being slightly intimidating to others… (According to Wikipedia)

It started with this, the very first piece. I never imagined I’d be making subsequent versions of it but as it turns out, I’m currently at version 4.

What I called, “the very pink version”. This was snapped up quick that I totally forgot to take a proper photo of it myself. So I “stole” this photo off Instagram from one of my customers who found a really cute way to display her necklace. According to her, “necklace in the day, decor by night”, thanks for this amazing photo Si Min! :)

When I exhausted all my pink fabric, I decided to cut up a whole piece of stripey fabric I bought awhile back, and created version 3! I didn’t have much fabric to go around for this color combination since there were only that many lines of pink from the entire piece of fabric.

And what did I do with the rest of the fabric? The blue and off white stripes went into version 4!

This is currently the only version still available for purchase by remake, the slots are filling up fast tho, you might want to pop into the store to try to secure a remake slot!

I hope to be able to restock some of the fabric I have run out of to make remakes available for the previous sold out versions, but! No promises just yet. If that fails, you can be sure to look forward to seeing many more versions of The Girl Next Door! :)

Have a fantastic weekend ya’ll! The countdown to 2013 begins.

Putting smiles on faces, one at a time…

Come year end, we all start fretting about shopping for gifts. Some of us fret all year round with endless birthday celebrations, but that’s where the challenge is! Everyone has different likes, dislikes, different tastes, needs, the list is endless. This can make shopping for something ready-made a real nightmare, plus it can take up a lot of time. Have you ever found yourself hopping from store to store to find something appropriate, only to end up buying a huge teddy bear?

It can be as simple as giving me an idea, and having the finished product shipped directly to you, anywhere in the world. :)

My aim is to make customisable gifts affordable for everyone, and yet bring bigger smiles to your loved ones than any store bought teddy. There’s just something about handmade, the personal touch, knowing it was made by a person and not pressed out of a factory machine. There’s just something about it that you can’t put your finger on. They’ll always think of you when they use their gift. And I guess my customers will think of me too? *laughs

A lot of work and time goes into creating a handmade piece, but when the product is ready, shipped out, and received, I know it’s all worth it.

My customers are the “proof” that this is so. :)

This email came in last night from Nadiah. She had a keyring customised for her bff and a cosy for her mum’s birthday that’s over a week away.

“Jean thank you again! My friend was speechless! I really can’t thank you for the effort! The box and card all! Thank you Jean! Ill always pray god blesses you! You’re too nice already! Will order again in nov okay! Heh I got too excited I gave my mom her present also! She was like “omg!!!” I gotta thank you again Jean! Terribly happy! Xoxo!”

If you would like to order customised gifts for the year end season, you might want to do so ahead of time so that I will have adequate time to work through your orders. Every piece is handmade with lots of love to go around. :)

Time To Get Cosy!

I’ve been in love with Miu Miu’s S/S 10 Collection for the longest time, and finally had time to create these Miu Miu-inspired pieces!

( click here to get them today! )

Been sewing alot more than usual of late i realise… Got some new foldover pouches to add to the store too! And I’ve got tons of fabric sitting around… Time to start making some new tote bags perhaps?

I LOVE WARHOL ANYTIME. HE’S MY INSPIRATIONAL MUSE!

This one’s Warhol-inspired. With cutesy blue hearts to line the inside.

florals?

This floral one will fit your cards, or maybe stash your accessories if you please. Perfect for holding cash and small items in a clutch when you go partying, it’s so slim so it won’t take up any unnecessary space that a proper wallet would.

These foldover pouches should be in store by tomorrow, I’m trying to tidy up the store for a better shopping experience this year end! (Stocking up on charms for customisations too!)

Have a great Sunday everyone! Altho the rain is dampening the weekend quite abit…
