>Tshirt Patchwork

> Leftover pieces from cut-up t-shirts. Some stitching and embroidery by hand. I will keep embellishing some of the squares and then will probably turn this into a pillow. Or had squares all around and turn it into a small blanket. Time will tell… Des restes de t-shirts coupés. De la couture et broderie à la main. Je vais continuer d’embellir certains carrés puis transformer le tout en coussin. Ou ajouter des carrés autour et le transformer en couverture. Seul le temps nous le dira… Advertisements Continue reading >Tshirt Patchwork

>Mason jar pincushion – Pot Mason pique-épingle

>  I have seen pincushions made from canning jars on the web before and have been wanting to make my own ever since. It wasn’t too difficult but I had to wait for the glue to dry between each step. I just eyeballed the whole thing. And since this is my prototype, it’s not perfect (I don’t even like the colours I used) but it does the trick. I will probably do another one and decorated it in a way I like better. I’ll let you know if I do. J’ai vu des porte-épingles fait à partir de pot à … Continue reading >Mason jar pincushion – Pot Mason pique-épingle

>Felt journal page – Page de journal en feutrine

> I haven’t played in my felt journal in a while so I thought I’d get back to it this week. It sort of looks like a landscape but really, I was just trying some new stitches and this is what it now looks like. Il y a longtemps que je n’avais pas joué dans mon journal en feutrine alors j’ai pensé m’y remettre cette semaine. Ça ressemble un peu à un paysage mais en réalité, j’essayais simplement de nouveaux points de broderie et c’est ce que ça donne maintenant.

>Felt grid page – Page de feutrine grillagée

> Inspired by all the “grid action” I made this page for the felt journal. Had fun playing with different stitches. I’ll show a better picture after I stitch this page to its back. Keeping it short today: I spent most of the weekend with my mother and my grandparents + I’m setting up the laptop that my father bought me. *** Inspirée par toute l’action “grillagée” j’ai fait cette page pour mon journal en feutrine. J’ai eu du plaisir avec les différents points de broderie. Je montrerai une meilleure photo après avoir cousu cette page à son dos. Je … Continue reading >Felt grid page – Page de feutrine grillagée

>Felt journal page 1 – Page 1 du journal en feutrine

> She “hearts” her cat. I decided to go with fabric/felt pages to fill the journal I made last week. And this is my first one. I thought this journal would be a great way to practice my hand-stitching. So I’m trying stitches I’ve never done before. Like the chain stitch for the heart. And the half-backstitch for the word “son.” The purple lace at the bottom is from a stash that was given to me by my boss’ mother. The head bead was made by my own mother with Sculpey clay and a mold. And I’ve had the cat … Continue reading >Felt journal page 1 – Page 1 du journal en feutrine

>Felt journal cover – Couverture de journal en feutrine

> Yesterday, I suddenly had the urge to do some hand-stitching and make a fabric journal cover. I decided to use felt because I have tons of it. I started by cutting two cardboard pieces 5-1/4″ x 7-1/4″. Then, I cut two pieces of felt in orange and two in yellow, about a half inch bigger than the cardboard on all four sides. I cut the pieces for the sun out of the leftovers from one of the yellow sheets. I stitched the sun on one layer of felt as well as the two triangles at the top. I sandwiched … Continue reading >Felt journal cover – Couverture de journal en feutrine
