1  From a model of 1885 in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz on: January 20, 2015 04:41:38 AM
Nathalie Dentzer set us a new challenge for the “Think Broderie” of 2015. We had a model, an extract of the “Revue de Mode”, a lady magazine of 1885. I love the fact it’s so old, that we just do what hundreds of stitchers have done before. However here the challenge for me was to stitch in a way my ancestors wouldn’t have.

And knit was really the appropriate fabric for it. I’m in the middle of a process of experimenting a lot with the reverse-applique technique, trying to see how I can play with it, so the timing was perfect. I chose two very different fabrics a medium organic one for the top and a light half knit half tencel for the bottom. So the contrast is not in colour but in weight too. I then added stitched with 2 threads remembering the fabrics and beads.

Hope you like it !

5  Metal & silk earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ThéaOz on: November 14, 2014 01:43:30 AM
One day I found an earing in the street, I wondered how I could reuse it in a creation… and started to stitch it. Actually it’s more like weaving than stitching. I liked the result, so I started to stitch a few of them.
The metal is tibetan silver, and the thread, indian silk, I really like the shininess of it.

6  Knit top, free pattern Deer&Doe in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ThéaOz on: November 09, 2014 11:45:34 AM
After long months of procratination I finally made this top. It has the huge advante to be free, but with the same quality as a paying one. It's perfect to wear with a jean, or most likely for me under a dress.

The material was bought at a creator sale in Paris, very cheap for the quality and the comfort it is.

I was lacking very badly tops so I'm pretty pleased it's so comfy and easy to make.

You can check it out, it's in English, and it's here :

7  Reversed appliqué Stitch Along in Needlework: Stitchalongs by ThéaOz on: October 24, 2014 12:18:07 PM
I just discovered this section, I looked for it before but didn't see it.

I'll propose a reverse appliqué stitch along in French on my blog, from the 15th of November, for 4 weeks.

If enough people are interested by a small project to try their hand at this technique, I can translate the lot in English.

Please let me know if you're interested Smiley We'll stitch together a Moleskine cover.

Few pics of the technique :

These are zardosi brooches I made with beads and metallic threads, with my own design.

9  Hand quilted pencil case in Quilting: Completed Projects by ThéaOz on: October 14, 2014 05:43:42 AM
My daughter is nearly 10 (on Saturday) and she loved a cushion I did with this specific material.

So I wanted to surprised her with an unexpected gift : I used the scrap left over and made a pencil case. I really like to hand-quilt small project, it's very soothing for the soul. And I like the way it looks now.

If you want to do one, please ask, I'll make a drawing Smiley

Here it is :

10  Rag quilt with denim and a saree in Quilting: Completed Projects by ThéaOz on: October 08, 2014 01:23:39 AM
I had a lot of old jeans to use, this saree was in my drawer since 12 years so I made a good use of them.
Inside there is a fleece, like that it is warm.

I love the effect rendered by the different shades of blue. I prefer it over the first one I made, with a lot of different materials.
