1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Metal & silk earrings 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.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Knit top, free pattern Deer&Doe 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 :

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Reversed appliqué Stitch Along 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 :
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Brooches Zardosi on: October 24, 2014 12:38:09 AM
These are zardosi brooches I made with beads and metallic threads, with my own design.
I'm quite pleased with the way it looks as it's the first time I design from A to Z something.
My daughter already choose and had a birthday before I've been able to take the picture... I made 16th in total Smiley

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hand quilted pencil case 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 :

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rag quilt with denim and a saree 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.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 tshirts into a "corset" Alabama Chanin on: October 04, 2014 02:27:55 AM

My husband gave me two polo neck tshirts recently, from a job he did 2 years ago. In between he used them for painting.
So when I cut my pattern I had to dealt with : avoid the brand, avoid the stains. But they were large, so it works.

I made this for a competition which says :
create a piece inspired by an art piece. I chose Matisse, because I love the birds, I love the blue, I love the simplicity. So I used this technique I love : reverse appliqué, and birds, my co-favourite symbols, with trees.

It's sewn by hand, entirely, without a machine. It's the spirit Alabama Chanin, and I love it ! The pattern is in her last book, the dark blue one.

The corset is a bit low on the neck line, so I'll redraw it next time. The sleeves are a bit funny too, but that I could sort it out directly.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tops light and practical on: September 26, 2014 11:41:09 PM
I was lacking tops badly, and I wanted tops made with light-weight materials.
The sales saved me, I found those 2 materials. I made a different collars, not to make it so obvious it's the same pattern.

And now I'm quite happy because I wore them all summer, and it's the first time a hand-made item got wear so much !

9  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.

I’m even very happy of the “no-flaws” look. Still don’t 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

10  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 didn’t 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 I’m pleased with it.
