Embroidered Gift Photo

26 October 2017

A cousin of mine have been working in Germany for quite sometime now and she will be there for more than two years still and so I will be seeing her again for the third time if I am not mistaken and so I planned this beautiful embroidered gift photo of her and her daughter. I always ask the same digitiser on http://www.etsy.com she is from Russia. Anyway, this embroidered photo took sometime to embroider although I was able to finish it in a day which is great because my machine can maximise stitches up to 800 spm but in this case I only used 500 spm so that is quite ok. I was able to find a new photo frame in our apartment which is still wrapped as if it was just been bought recently so that is a good thing. In these photos you will see the threads that I used and the sequence of embroidery that I made.

Cumberland Backpack

4 September 2017

My eldest daughter is in her secondary grade 1, so she needs a school bag and she requested a backpack. And so www.sewsweetness.com have this pattern plus video offered on sale the time I bought it together with three more pattern and video as well. That backpack is a cumberland backpack. I used the fabric I bought at stoffenspektakle which is an upholstery fabric in a cubic form of shape. I combine it with a cork fabric on the pocket which I bought at Les Tissus du Chien Vert Liege. As for the lining I bought that long time ago at www.cotonurbain.be. Zippers, twist lock, nylon strapping and bias tape are bought at veritas. I do not have mesh so I just use fabric instead.

Getting ready for summer vacation in France and since it is a long trip I made the girls a cuddly seatbelt pillow.  I made these already its just that the first time was with a pillow inserts and of two different sizes but these seatbelt pillows are without pillow inserts and the fabric is a bit fluffy and  I combined it with jeans fabric for the pockets and embroidered name on it.

 

DIY Dollhouse with lights

13 August 2017

We built/assembled, together with my eldest daughter, a diy dollhouse with lights as a gift for my youngest daughter for her eighth birthday. It took us at least ten days to finish it, why you would ask well we are always doing it when everybody else’s asleep and finish it early morning. This dollhouse was ordered at http://www.banggood.com. The name of the dollhouse is love castle and yes I modified it. I used popsicle sticks small and big, bought paints, varnish and adhesive foil. Took fabrics from my stash instead of using the one that is included inside the box. And yes I even took a video of the everyday updates we made and of course you will see the finish product.
