Chaise brodée. One curbside find + an idea + three days of stitching = my favourite craft project ever.

Chaise brodée

There is something so satisfying about finding a discarded object, giving it some special attention and turning it into something covetable. Apart from my time, this project cost me nothing at all.

Dopo il lavaggio e l’essiccazione, rimuove con precisione chirurgica ed estrema cura i segmenti in eccesso, usando una tecnica simile a quella del tradizionale paper cutting. Quest’ultimo passo è ovviamente il più difficile vista la fragilità del materiale scelto, il risultatò di questo processo è una serie di affascinanti disegni geometrici incredibilmente belli e dilicati. Grazie a Francesca per il suggerimento. via: illusion.scene360.com.

Œuvres en cuir

In collaboration with Gravillis. Austin's symbols : - Paramount Theater - Food Trailer Parks - South Congress Bridge bats (- The Texas Capitol) "Our goal was to create a poster that did not feel like it could be easily digitally reproduced. Ultimately, we wanted to embrace the 'do-it-yourself' ethos that SXSW has shown each year with their creative and imaginative footprint at the festival.”

Organisateur latéral pour lit

I don’t know what took me so long because it’s awesome and has made my space so much more pleasant to be in. I’m not a very organised person and can sort of ignore a moderate amount of mess, but after a while it gets me down, so it was time to do something about it. This Bedside Gadget Caddy is designed to hold everything that I like to keep on hand so I’ve designed it to suit my needs. Originally (last year) I was just going to make a pocket for my iPad but I’m quite happy that I waited and made a caddy to hold everything, as you can see from the picture below, I really had to sort out the clutter situation. You can use my exact pattern or adjust it slightly to fit your space and gadget holding requirements.

So many people asked me what the twine can be used for. Well I suppose what ever you use yarn or rope for is a good answer. Some suggestions were basket making, crochet, weaving, macrame, cording for garments…the list is endless, but I was drawn to my sewing machine (as usual) and wanted to see how it sewed together.

You will need: Scrap fabric twine, lots and lots of it! How to: 1. 2. Hint: Starting is the trickiest, you can sew a little cross shape over the center to make it more secure. 3. Chemin de table en patchwork. I’ve used an ingenious but easy construction technique to assemble this rainbow hued Patchwork Hexagon Table Runner.

After making hundreds of Paper Pieced Hexagons, and sewing them all together, I thought a table runner was a nice project that would to show them off to their full potential and that I could see and enjoy every day. Dessous-de-verres en Tricotin. French Knitting (or Dolly Knitting) is usually is usually the first foray into knitting that most of us have had as kids.

Do you remember making long lengths of long knitted cords and then thinking “What do I do with these now?”. Sac à main. Moi, mon sac à main, c’est le même que Marie Poppins!

Sac à main

On peut y trouver une paire de gants (même en plein été), des lunettes de soleil (même en plein hiver bien gris), des pansements et des billes d’arnica (éléments indispensables quand on a des enfants!) , des dizaines de stylo, mes 3000 cartes de fidélité, une lime à ongle, une mini lampe de poche (très utile quand on se retrouve complètement dans le noir dans des escaliers au 5ème étage d’un immeuble, je vous assure!) Sac à tarte. – « Allooooo??
