11  2 tshirts into a "corset" Alabama Chanin in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ThéaOz 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.

12  Tops light and practical in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ThéaOz 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 !

13  Pink, purple mandala in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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

14  Pink green mandala in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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.

15  Zardosi jewels in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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...

Here is the link for all the pics : http://theaoz.wordpress.com/2014/09/12/bijoux-zardosi-zardosi-jewels/

16  Very simple dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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

17  Zardosi mandala in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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.

18  From men shirts, a dress, and a sari in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ThéaOz 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

19  Rag Quilt with few of my favorite materials in Quilting: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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 !!

20  Floral embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThéaOz 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
