Supplies

  • 1 mug tree holder 
  • decorative paper towels
  • 1 pot of glue-varnish Decopatch
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 1 flat brush

 

I used to store my embroidery threads in a simple cardboard box, and then one day, seeing that mug tree holder hanging in a closet, I told myself that I had to do something with it. I wanted to be able to easily catch the thread spools for my Brazilian bracelets, and I also wanted to highlight them in my small workshop. 

So I covered the mug tree holder with decorative paper towels and glue-varnish. To hang the embroidery threads, I first gathered them in groups that I tied with a ribbon before attaching the ribbons to each branch of the tree.


If you also want to retrieve an old mug tree holder and cover with decorative towels, nothing more simple : cut pieces of towel , apply a first coat of glue-varnish, put pieces of towel on the support, then apply a new layer of glue-varnish and leave to dry for 24 hours. You can replace the decorative towels with another type of paper such as Decopatch or Artepatch.

Supplies

  • Bouton d'Or yellow wool yarn
  • Katia Baby blue wool yarn
  • Bergère de France "Porcelaine" wool yarn
  • Blue and white "Celebrate" ribbon
  • 2 small blue buttons
  • Rayher fabric flower

 

(Plain knitting)

 

Inspiration


For Easter I knitted an overall dress - size 3 months - plain knitting. I chose a yellow wool that reminded me of the little yellow chicks that are often seen at easter in the windows of chocolate shops. I also found little yellow chicks at Hema for my photo. They're so cute!

With the dress, I knitted baby booties, also size 3 months and a headband on which I sewed a fabric flower. The headband is based on a cap pattern that was in a PHILDAR and Marie Claire  book called "Baby birth gifts" - "Cadeaux de naissance" in French. For the baby booties I used a pattern from the book "Baby Booties" of Bergère de France and Marie Claire. ("Chaussons de bébé" in French).

I didn't used a pattern for the dress. I knitted a skirt, then I binded off stitches on each side keeping the center stitches before proceeding straight on to knit the square front. I binded off all remaining stitches, then I sewed two buttons to fasten the suspenders that I knitted from the back of the skirt.
