thimblecap has joined the assembly

And by that, I mean THE ASSEMBLY, ZeroThreeTwo‘s store.

My items, however, will not be listed on their online shop, but in the physical one. Which is really all sorts of exciting because I can now say that Thimblecap has penetrated the mall. *squeeeeeeee*

The Assembly by ZeroThreeTwo is located at JY Square Mall in Lahug. It’s right between LBC and Watson’s.




Here are the items I have on display: DSC_4598

The stack at the bottom are notepad purses.


And a photo of me sewing the items above, during that one stormy last week:


Aside from The Assembly, I also have purses on display at The Chillage.

As I type this, I think about the many ways with which we can expand the reach of Thimblecap. I am imagining days of working my butt off, lugging materials around from downtown stores, drinking a gallon of coffee each week, and pretty much loving every single step. Insert second delighted squeal here.

anthill x thimblecap

Something awesome happened early this year. I was able to do a design collaboration with ANTHILL!


Anthill is a social enterprise store in the city. They are one of the few places in Cebu where one can soak in culture and style. Not only do they support local communities and help spread the beauty of Philippine-made fabric, they also support independent makers. I’m just a girl with some stamps and it was incredibly thrilling to have been able to work with Anthill.

I was given several meters of neon weaves in four colors and had a crazy, good time. ‘



We used travel and crafting-themed stamps. The name of the finished items: Passion Pouches.

tutorial: a simple way to give an old magnetic board a new life

For the longest time, I had quite the ugly whiteboard. Not only was it ugly, it was tricky to write on as well. The tricky bit was a result of washi tape residue on the surface. I considered throwing this whiteboard away but pretty paper saved the day.

My last TO-DO list involved reminders before heading off to a bazaar. I have not been able to erase it because of the aforementioned tape residue.

So I got myself some pretty paper, Mod Podge, paint brush, and gave the old whiteboard a new life.

Before I started, I had to make sure that the magnets would still do their job on two layers of thick-ish paper.

I cut the paper according to the size of the board and Mod Podged away.

Added three layers of Mod Podge over the paper to seal:

Prettified the border, too, with tissue paper.

I HAD to make new magnets too.

These were buttons with round stickers Mod Podged to the center.

Here is my “new” weapon for an organized life (I hope)!
