Baby cocoon and hat

I finally finished my baby cocoon and hat!
and this is my last project for 2013!
It was a long project and I think it's pretty cute!

I used the cocoon pattern from RedHeart
and the hat from Hookedonneedles blog
(really easy tutorial with pictures)
Thank you!

This year wasn't as creative as I wanted to but I had other interesting experiences and being pregnant is a huge creative process!

I hope I will be able to manage some creative time in 2014...

Something different!

While I am still waiting for my decoupage and scrapbooking supplies I had to keep my hands busy!
As my daughter started to knit, it motivate me to crochet again (I did a little baby set 21 years ago!)...
So, I bought some crochets and yarn, watch some tutorial to refresh my memory and here we go!
I did 2 little cardigan with my personal touch, a little hat and some booties for the baby to come...

Here is a cute Cardigan with a little hat and booties:

Here is the video that help me for the cardigan:

Here is the video that help me for the booties (then follow part 2,3 and 4):

I don't remember where I got the pattern for the hat but you can easily find free one on the web.

And here is another cute one:

Just a little note!

Just a little note to all my followers and visitors...

As I moved to another country, my blog is on stand by, I still love everything crafty and I can't wait to get my hands on my supplies again, that are travelling in a container.

Be patient!

Artist Feature : The Art of Embroidery

This year I wasn't able to do the National craft month (as some of you know, I was busy renovating my basement!)...
But my creativity and my eye for beautiful creation bring me today to introduce you to Melissa from SewSweetStiches.

Melissa has a passion for fiber especially for sewing and embroidery (It was one of my first passion too!)

She makes such beautiful and intricate accessories.
So pretty, like a little sunshine in every of her pieces!

Simple to sophisticated!...
She was kind enough to even share her creative process on her blog; Check it out!

They are so perfect for Spring!
I just Love them all!

Ipad sleeve Tutorial

I took a break in my cleaning, sorting out stuff to create a little something for me but I thought of sharing it with you!
It has been a long time since I sewed, and since I received an ipad for Christmas I thought of doing a cozy sleeve for when I will travel with it!
I had this pretty fabric that I have saved preciously and I finally found a perfect project for it!
Sewing was the very first creative thing I've learned; I took one year in a school in Paris as I wanted to became a stylist but I changed my mind and took another career!...
I used to make my own clothes...

So anyway... here is my pretty Ipad sleeve!

and a little tutorial for you; actually 2 ways of doing it!

Option 1:

- Cut your fabric and fleece in the size of your ipad + 1.5cm for the sewing
- Sew the printed fabric and the sleeve face to face
- Flip it over
- Sew the inside border
- Fold the fabric face to face and sew the 2 sides
leaving the flap.
- Then turn it over.

Here is a little video that can help:

Option 2:

- Cut your fabric and fleece in the size of your ipad + 1.5cm for the sewing
- Sew the flap (fabric face to face) and flip it over
- Sew the inside border
- place the sleeve printed fabric on printed fabric and sew the borders
- Flip it over and iron if needed!

Video #2:

Here are the measurements I used for
The ipad without cover: 50.5cm  (54cm for the printed fabric) X 26cm
The Ipad with cover : 56.5cm (60cm for the printed fabric) X 30cm

I hope it will help you to make your very own Ipad sleeve ;)

I appreciate your comments...
