  1. Lovely ethnic wear
    Lakhshmi about punches you can ask for craft punches- the big shops would have it but will be more expensive prices range from 30 rupees to 800 rupees depending on the size of the punch. Very small punches are a pain to use as you need to give pressure. Go for a medium sized punch costing 80-125 rupees as then even your daughter can have fun with in for her school projects etc.Choose a shape such as flowers for your first punch as you can have more fun with it. A heart is so easy to hand cut you can buy it if you are really fond of hearts or do a lot of papercrafts!

  2. Cute! i miss wearing pattu pavadai! Whether it was a birthday or a festival.. this was the only thing my mom used to make me wear! It was like a holiday uniform!
    Love the colours in this one.. typical green and maroon combo! :)
