1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pink, purple mandala on: September 19, 2014 09:08:44 AM
I love the colours, and I love the sound of it, pink, purple.

Well I had a lot of fun picking up the colours, the different sizes and stitching it.

Im even very happy of the no-flaws look. Still dont know what to do with it, but will soon find an idea !

Sorry for the amount of pics, but I really love this one  Cheesy



2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pink green mandala on: September 17, 2014 11:11:43 AM
I stitched this mandala over 3 months. Not because it took a long time but because I really thought about which effect I wanted. At first, (crazy me !) I wanted to only do French knots, then reality took over. And I thought about other stitches. The grid and the ribbon were nice and easy to do, but then I let it to rest. I didnt know how to finish it.

A big clean in my workshop gave me the key : 2 soft thread, and the way to tie them to the material give them soft waves.

Now Im pleased with it.

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Zardosi jewels on: September 16, 2014 08:55:25 AM
This is some new trials. I made "small" embroidery patches and then stuck it onto supports.
Zardosi is time consuming so if I want to give them away, I had to make them smaller.

My daughter loves them, and can't wait to get one Smiley So I'm pretty pleased.

But not entirely satisfied. They could be better complete, but "how" ? I still have to think about it...

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Very simple dress on: July 24, 2014 02:16:44 AM
Nowadays I don't bother with patterns anymore for my children.
The simpler it is, the better it is.

Here it's a rectangle, with an elastic and 2 straps.

It's the material which makes it nice Smiley



5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Zardosi mandala on: July 14, 2014 02:49:37 AM


June was a bit complicated for me, so I needed to unwind a lot.
To stitch is my therapy. And to add sparkes to a material add sparkle to my life too. However cheesy that sounds it's true Cheesy

So with few sequins, beads, silk and thread I did that.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From men shirts, a dress, and a sari on: June 18, 2014 11:52:50 AM
I wanted to  make this lovely top since last year, but I didn't have time, and when I had again, it was not the season anymore.

So I got ready for it, but I wanted to make a muslin first. Except I didn't have muslin materials and I didn't want to buy anything.

My husband donated my few stained shirts few months ago.... I had lightish material.
For the inside I had an old dress to cut from.

And the back, the blue I love, is from a sari.

The pattern is Datura, from Deer&Doe. More pics and info http://theaoz.wordpress.com/2014/06/08/datura-chemisesari/ Smiley


7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rag Quilt with few of my favorite materials on: May 04, 2014 09:00:44 AM
Here is the rag quilt I've made this week.

I really try to have my pile of fabrics to get down, but these are a few of my favourite ones. It's great to be able to have them around thanks to this quilt.

Thanks a lot to the ladies on youtube who explained so well how to do it, I didn't know about this style of quilt. It's so easy, it's a great thing to do quicky.

And my daughter absolutely love it !!

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Floral embroidery on: March 22, 2014 12:30:36 AM


From a material I like I drew the flowers (very inspired by indian designs) and then stitched it.

I really like it, but it's so precious I don't know what to do with it. The last silk ribbon piece I made didn't do so well in my handbag. If you have any ideas, please let me know Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hand sewn dress - Alabama Chanin style on: March 08, 2014 05:12:29 AM


After a month and a half of work, here is my new dress.

It's done with knit, from the book Alabama Studio Studio + Design.



I'm a bit disappointed as my knit was not stretchy, and the dress is a tad small. But well, it's done so I better enjoy it !
