I love her and enjoyed so much creating it!!
I created my own pattern and just guessed and tried for making the different body parts and face details. The best thing about it is that every step of the process of creating it is really enjoyable : designing, sewing, grunging, heating… The only part where I really struggled was the making of the dress. I know I will have to learn more about this process 🙂
Now, I am planning on finding a way to make a frame box to display it and have it in my sewing room.
I bet she is the first of a long series of primitive looking dolls (well, there’s already a black chicken just out of the oven and almost ready to join her!).
Hi there 🙂
I have been busy this last week working on my first custom order! I am really happy to have been picked up to create something special but I must admit it is also quite stressful lol 🙂 The pressure of making something really perfect is big and I have been making, unmaking and remaking a lot!!! But still, it is a very great experience and I can’t wait to have a feedback from my customer!
In between two creations for my customer, I couldn’t help make something else, to relax a bit from the stress previously mentioned 🙂 I have focused on adding lots of colours and patterns and for the first time, I have framed my creation!
I really like how happy and colourful the artwork is (especially with the bad weather we are having in here at the moment..) and it looks really gorgeous in its white frame.
So here it is – and yes, it is another house! ,)
Happy week end every one 🙂
I so wish I could live in a little house like this!
Lost in the fields, tomatoes slowly growing in the sun, a little tree to read a book in the shade. Of course, there is ivy on the walls and clothes drying on the line, dancing gently with the wind.
Just wanted to make a quick post to show you what I have been working on today!!!
It has been a long time I had wanted to try to make a little brooch using the free embroidery technique. Every time I see a picture of one, I try to guess how it has been made, what type of support one is supposed to use etc.
Needless to say, the fabrication secrets stay, well, secret this way!
Anyway, today I thought I would try to create one even though I had no idea really of how to make it! I threaded my sewing machine, got my darning foot on and whoosh! I started to sew 🙂
And here is the result, it is a bit wonky and full of imperfections, but still extra small and cute 🙂
The real difficult part for me is to get a nice back when I addd the tiny brooch bit.
Then, I tried to make another one, a pliable portrait. It ended up being too big for a brooch, so I turned into a framed artwork instead.
And a close up :
It might not stay in this frame as I really like when I can see more of the orange fabric. Maybe mounted on a square canvas might really be cute.
Wishing you all a good night (or day)
