Funny laundry bag


laundry-bag-01
The ellipse of my previous post was for the bottom of this laundry bag.

Our second bird has left the nest :cry:
Fortunately our daughter is not far but her first year of medical studies doesn’t allow her time for daily stains. This laundry bag is full of what I have to wash (I don’t see her when I go to her student room).

I did not resist and added a humoristic deco ;-)

How to draw an ellipse


How to draw an ellipse (step 01)
I did not resigned, but since five months a nasty (and persistant) right thumb tendinitis prevents me to make any manual activity (and quite anything else as I’m right handed …).

Few days ago I completed a project, but since then I am again in a phase of forced inactivity :cry:

Anyway, for this project I needed an ellipse!

Love clover family names cushion

My friend Marie is a great person! Generous and caring she is also a very cheerful person who has been an invaluable support in difficult times.

She appreciates the value of “handmade done with love” and for Christmas I like to create for her a customized gift.
This year, her daughter left for her studies, with this cushion I wanted her to be able to hug all her loving family.

Autre-Porte-Papiers-11Autre-Porte-Papiers-01
After the minimalist car document holder (HERE), here’s a second more complete model which includes the registration card, the driver’s license and the green insurance card.

Despite 30 pics (yes, I counted) I didn’t succeed in showing you the multicolored holographic glitters of my coated fabric.
Trust me, it’s very nice …

End of year bal


Bal 01Masque 01
It’s already the end of the school year, and it was the high school bal for my daughter. The theme this year was “bal masqué”.

It’s not the most graceful pose, but I was in a hurry while taking photos and it’s the one in which the dress I sewed is the nicer ;-)

Furnitures for the mask :
– tulle,
– stick of fabric paint,
– clinging film.

Thread catcher


poubelle fils 01
The shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot : I have already sewed thread catcher but it was christmas gift.
I didn’t have mine.

All is recycling :
– an old jeans,
– a piece of purple satin,
– some sand taken from a Corsican beach 4 years ago,
– even the scissors holder is a belt loop…

Cameo Silhouette carrying bag


housse-cameo 01housse-cameo 02
There are 2 types of protection for the Silhouette Cameo :

– the dust cover (but you can’t carry it),
– totes (as you can bring your laptop, they are too big).

After 2 weeks of several tries and prototypes, I have found the solution : the Silhouette is protected, cords are stored and you can carry it !
