I would like to reinstate that I only have one etsy shop that sells my embroidered items-- which is "LAULAU" (my own shop) and no other etsy shops.  

If you have any questions about whether or not something is actually made by me, please message me.

Profanity & Bad Things

I'm starting to embroider on sweatshirts, I have a bunch of plain ones I found at the thrift store

I actually saw this on a vintage skirt on etsy and had to copy it, old cursive is just so cool right?  I think I heard on the news that schools aren't going to teach cursive anymore, that's sad. 

The cigarette is very popular these days (e.g. Prada), even though I think its gross, i'm still intrigued by it!

This is one of Ryan's drawings, its kinda "graffiti" style(?), I just like it a lot, I'm not quite finished with it, it still needs shadows and whiskers...

I did this for fun, it took so long, denim waistbands are the worst place to embroider imo, but they look so dam cool?

At this point i'm just doing a bunch of crazy embroidery stuff for fun, I have a really awesome one i'm about to finish!!!!!!!!!

Mickey shorts

I just finished these yesterday for Mara

It was really fun!

Here she is wearing them! she looks really good in them!, photo taken from @jimwalrod instagram

She also wanted her name in the front, and she let me pick out what color and style.  I decided on rainbow, because I wanted to give the shorts a 70s feeling.  It was so fun!  I drew out the design with disappearing fabric ink, then drew 6 stripes throughout each letter.  I was thinking of outlining it, but I didn't.  It was a surprise to have it in rainbow, I hope she likes it!

Here she is wearing them, front view, photo via @jimwalrod instagram

It was nice to do a custom job and for once not think of my own creation, which can get tiring!  I am open to custom jobs, if anyone is interested drop me a message!

Summer DIY Ideas

Here's some cute stuff I've saved on my Etsy.  Most are available to buy, but it would be even more fun to try to make yourself!  Counter clockwise:  The first picture is a vintage 30s dress, I like the idea of the print being used as a applique trim, it seems kind of time consuming but an awesome idea.  The tie-dye on the shorts is a really nice blend and color combo, and seems like it would be easy to copy.  The orange slice is actually a pin (it is from a real orange!), i'm not sure how this is done, but it seems like a good research diy project.  The last picture is of cute barrettes, seems fun and easy.  If you would rather buy these the links are below!

Counter clockwise:
1.  Vintage 1930s Dress, $95
2.  Tie Dye Shorts, Sold Out
3.  Blood Orange Pin, $30
4.  Custom Barrettes
