DIY Embroidered top





Last day in Paris! We decided to take our pictures at the Place de la Concorde, but when we got out of the subway, the sky was dark and the wind was blowing. I started to pose but suddenly wind blew through the fountain and all my back got soaking wet! Then it started to rain so we rushed to the nearest station, laughing out loud :)

It was the very first time I tried to embroider something! I am more familiar with sewing things, so this was a new challenge. Finding flower and leaves shaped sequins was a long story, hand-embroidering it was even longer! Actually it's easier than it seems once you get the right way to do it, all I needed was patience, but I enjoyed it, so I will probably try again in the future ;)




Dernier jour à Paris! Nous avons décidé de prendre nos photos Place de la Concorde, mais au moment où nous sommes sortis du métro, le ciel était devenu noir et menaçant. J'ai commencé à poser, quand une grande rafale de vent est passée dans la fontaine et m'a trempé tout le dos! Puis une averse nous est tombée dessus, alors nous avons couru jusqu'au métro en rigolant comme des gosses :)

C'est mon tout premier essai de broderie! Je commence à avoir un peu plus l'habitude de coudre, mais là c'était un vrai défi. Trouver le sequins en forme de fleurs et de feuilles a été une longue histoire, puis les broder un par un a été encore plus long! En fait c'est plus facile qu'il n'y paraît, une fois qu'on a pris le coup de main, il faut surtout de la patience. ça m'a beaucoup plu, je pense réessayer d'autres broderies à l'avenir ;)

  21. Ton top est canon ! C'est exactement le genre d'application que je voudrai faire de mon enseignement de broderie. Pourrais tu me dire où tu as trouvé ces perles, elles sont superbes !

    A très vite,
