Birthday Pouch for Kristin

Giving someone a handmade gift for their birthday is something that I really enjoy doing. It's fun for me to think of something I think they would like and and use I imagine it's fun for them having a product that was made specifically for them and is one of a kind!

My friend Kristin had a bar hopping party in downtown LA with a Hawaiian theme. To prepare we went to an amazing Hawaiian clothing store in Downey, CA called Exotical! It had everything in authentic Hawaiian wear you could ever want. I strongly encourage you to check it out! But first, have a look at this fun color block zip pouch I made for Kristin below...

Cuppow Custom Patches

I worked on some custom patch designs for Cuppow, an American company that develops everyday products to help with a no impact life. One of which is a reusable lid that can be put onto any canning jar for an on-the-go lifestyle!

The patch designs which celebrate clean eating and healthy living are sold exclusively on Cuppow's website: Clean Plate Club and Veg Out! See below for my sketches, vector art, and final sew out images!

Papa's Tote

No better fans than your own family. My Papa (dad's dad) was looking for a bag to carry around to hold all of his essentials for his hearing aid equipment, hat, glasses case, etc. when he goes out. Who better to give him what he needs than his very own sew capable granddaughter?!

I made him a simple tote with a bright lining so he could easily see what was in the bag with a soft velcro closure and nylon webbing handles. Gotta have it branded so I added a Soda Jerk patch for old time-y's sake! Check out that Mokuyobi custom hangtag! Such a rare breed.
