Sam The Dog (Link to pattern included)

A couple weeks back I was wrecking my brains trying to figure out what to gift to my niece who was turning 1, so I scoured through Pinterest and found a pattern for a “Sausage dog” designed by Michele Wilcox. I knew it’d be perfect since the body was perfect for tiny toddler hands!

Meet Sam the Dog!

I was a little skeptical about using such contrasting colors initially but I like how it turned out!

WOOOOOFFFFF!

I can’t remember how long it took to complete, but you can definitely work this in under 3 hours.

I owe everyone my sincerest apologies for all the inconveniences caused due to the store move.

To cut a long story short, there was some misunderstanding/miscommunication with Yahoo with regards to the domain cancellation and re-registration process. Not only are they holding on to my domain (jeaninegabrielle.com), they have since completely ignored all my emails and emails that the Shopify gurus have sent them! (How’s that for professionalism, huh?) According to a domain check, they are not letting it go until 2015. I am just going to stick with the Shopify URL to avoid yet another URL change, until I get my domain back, or not.

Please update your bookmarks to jeanine-gabrielle.myshopify.com
For enquires, feel free to email me at jeaninegabrielle@gmail.com

No more store URL changes for the next year, promise! I hope you girls will enjoy the new cart system, you can also create a user account to keep track of your purchases. :)

On a side note, if any of you are wondering why the store @ jeaninegabrielle.com has not been updated in ages, it’s cause I have no technical access to it to make changes! Yahoo Sitebuilder runs only on Windows and I use a Mac, and since my Parallels refused to work and I haven’t been able to fix it, I’m in the midst of looking for alternative options. If any of you have good ideas on how I can move the store to another provider or how I can host my WordPress blog on my domain please do let me know, but for now all updates will be here on the blog! xx

The Carnival Collection – Cause everyday should be a carnival!

If you’re following me on Instagram, you would have seen all the sneak peeks I’ve uploaded leading up to this launch, but… why Carnival? Well, it started out with three colors, Magenta, Hyacinth and Teal. They’re not exactly your “safe” colors, but think Mardi Gras and you’ll probably sink right in to the whole Carnival feel. Of course, Mardi Gras is a lot more outrageous than the pieces you will see in this collection, but I want these pieces to be wearable even on a daily basis.

Cause everyday should be a carnival!

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Coincidentally, Mardi Gras (also known as Fat Tuesday) was just two days ago!

Carnivals make people happy and creates positive vibes all around. Carnivals are bold and carnivals are expressive, did I say carnivals make people really happy? So why just day dream about going to a carnival (cause there’s really nothing like that in Singapore) if you can rock that happy vibe through your outfits and get others in a happy mood too?

Everyone has different tastes, and some may not be as quick to warm up to bold colors, so with that in mind I created a collection of varied looks, while still encapsulating that carnival vibe. Each piece is the final product of hours of snipping, arranging, rearranging, and more rearranging. I never know what a piece is going to look like until I’m done. But I create every piece with the same aim in mind, that it will cheer you up and inspire you even on the gloomiest days like a Carnival would!

Here’s Part 1 of The Carnival Collection! Happy Shopping!

Please note : As with all handmade pieces, no two remakes of a design will be carbon copies of each other.

carnival-kaleidoscopedreams

Kaleidoscope Dreams – $45

The highlight of The Carnival Collection! Many of you have been asking for brighter, bolder colors, I hope this is what you girls imagined and more. Definitely a happy go-to piece!

( 4 pieces in-stock // 4 remakes available. )

All slots pending, invoices for this piece will be sent out within 24 hours. Thank you for the overwhelming response!

20140305_152636

Just looking at this makes me happy! I couldn’t help editing this photo to create a realistic kaleidoscope effect!

flamingo_4

Carnival costumes often have “wings” or feathered head pieces that resemble birds or a peacock with it’s tail spread open. Apart from standing out in the crowd, I believe they portray confidence, uninhibited expression of oneself, daring to stand out and be bold, and that was the main inspiration behind the next few pieces.

We all need to remember to not be afraid to spread our wings in order to fly higher and reach greater heights!

carnival-psychdelicbird

The Psychedelic Bird – $39

(In-stock sold, remake availability to be confirmed)

I might restock the fabric to remake this piece if you girls are interested, there may be only one piece available now but if you’re interested please do indicate your interest! :)

Carnival Gems – $39

(In-stock sold, all remake slots pending)

A quirky combination of navy blue and mint green, topped with faux pearls on a string of pearls. Yes! More pearls!

Not quite loud and definitely not in your face, but Mardi Gras is never complete without strings of beads and pearls! This piece actually doubles up nicely as a drapping head piece!

Earth laughs in flowers.

Earth laughs in flowers. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am surrounded by flowers everyday. While they’re not real life living breathing flowers, they still make me happy all the same. It is no surprise I am so in love with what I do.. I’ve been trying to experiment with different types of flowers lately, so I thought I’d share some floral love!

Processed with VSCOcam with m4 preset

I tried making some really cute paper roses! I think these would be great for adding a pop of fun and color to a house party, you know, birthdays, baby showers.. or even a DIY wedding party! Strung together I think they would make some pretty rad rose garlands!

Would you use paper flowers around your home? Share your thoughts! :)

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

Camellias… Made famous by Chanel no less! I started making these last month and I must say these are quite a popular pick for bridal hair accessories. I can’t wait to see the photos from the weddings, will definitely share them when I get my hands on them. :D

I first created this design back in 2011, and if I remember correctly, it was called “Pretty as a bride” (I think).

sherylyn

Photos courtesy of Sherlyn – IG : sherlynchanwp (Thanks for letting me use these!)

Recenty some girls spotted Sherlyn wearing the 2011 version and have requested that I remake this sweet and simple piece that’s great for everyday wear. I heard you, so here it is; slightly tweaked and now in two color options. This time I’m giving it a fun name, Roxy!

The beauty of simplicity, the innocence and purity of white. Roxy will take you to school, work, date nights and brunch with friends.

roxyrose

Add some floral fun to a casual outfit or polish off your look in a fitted dress. How would YOU wear Roxy?

octoberlaunch-colors

Roxy is available in Off white and Ivory, with limited remakes of each color. Please indicate your color preference when ordering.

I’ve been tweaking the design to get as close to the original version as possible, and have decided to stick with the less chunky version (3) for all future remakes. The 3 pieces below are in stock, (top left) 1. Roxy in Off white, (right) 2. Roxy in Ivory, (bottom left) 3. Roxy in Off white – remake version.

IMPORTANT *Please note that remakes will be done in the bottom left version (3) which comes closest to the original 2011 version.

Once in a lifetime, one chance to create memories that will last forever.

At the beginning of the year I decided that I would start working on wedding related products this year, and I did! Bouquets, corsages, hair pieces, I just haven’t had time to sit down and document everything properly so here goes nothing.

This is the latest bouquet I’m working on, and it is one of my favourites personally.

20130718_151257_Fotor copy 20130718_151241_Fotor2 copy

20130718_151245_Fotor copy

Unlike previous bouquets I have completed which leaned more to safe colour combinations, this one is a lot bolder and unconventional. It is still in the works though, but I’ll definitely update again once the arrangement is finalised.

bouqet-valene

My very first bouquet for Danny & Valene, I heard they got tons of compliments while doing their pre-wedding shoot in Taiwan!

And that’s just one advantage of having a fabric bouquet, you can get it months before the actual wedding, use it for shoots, travel with it, and then take it down the aisle on your special day. I can’t wait to see their wedding shots!

20130507_151716_Fotor copy

The second bouquet for Seng Wee & Xin Yi, a subtle, sweet bouquet of baby pink and ivory roses and peonies.

ivoryroses

Luscious ivory rose hair pins that were made for Valene. These are so versatile, you can pop on into a high bun or classy chignon any day! Who says only brides can wear flowers in their hair? :)

spencer-corsages

Spencer and a previous lot of peony flower corsages.

brenoverlay41-invert

The question people most frequently ask me is, “Do you actually make all these flowers?”

“Yes, I do.” Each one handmade with attention to every petal, and as much hard work as they are, these flowers  never fail to make my day. Yes, making flowers from scratch compared to buying them off the shelf and putting them together in a bouquet is extremely tedious, but I believe there’s just something special about handmade that’s different. One thing is for sure though, these “forever bouquets” will make your memories of that special day last forever… :)

Are YOU planning your special day? Or know of someone who is? Feel free to contact me should you have any questions at all, jeanine@jeaninegabrielle.com

“Will it fit my phone?” Here’s how to figure it out!

Grab a tape measure and size up your phone, or check for measurements on the respective mobile sites. You should be measuring it around so, 2 x width + 2 x thickness. Then compare that against the measurements provided for the pieces and you should get a good gauge.

Measurements provided are for length and width (excluding sewing edge) so when you’re sizing it up for your phone, use the (width x 2). I didn’t complicate that, did I? If you still need help, feel free to contact me. :)

Lace & crochet dresses are all the rage these days, so what better way to accessorise than with a complimentary floral necklace?

If you’ve been following my blog you might have read about “The Girl Next Door” designs last November featuring all the color combinations that have sold out. I promised I’d try to bring back your favourites, not exactly the same but identical. For starters I’m going back to where it began with the pink and nude blush combination!

gnd6-launch

The Girl Next Door Edition 6 $45

(One piece ready to ship)

Please note that there are two variations for this piece, The Girl Next Door Edition 6 (above) &  The Girl Next Door Luxe Edition 6 (below). The difference? The same fabrics are used for both, but! In edition 6, the nude blush satin is reversed, giving you a “matte” and more down to earth look while the luxe edition spots a little sheen on the nude blush roses.

No price difference between the two, but at the end of the day it boils down to personal preference. Which one will you choose?


gndluxe6The Girl Next Door Luxe Edition 6 $45

(One piece ready to ship)

Only 18 remake slots available for The Girl Next Door Edition 6 & The Girl Next Door Luxe Edition 6 combined. Orders that come in after the 18 slots are filled will be put on a waiting list.
*If you can’t decide between the two, don’t worry! Place an order to secure the remake slot first, you can decide if you want to go simple or luxe upon receiving the invoice. :)
