Fabric bins

Carrying on with the sewing machine, I made fabric bins based on the easy tutorial of this blog. The foxy fabric is from the French fabric store Mondial Tissu.
My interfacing is really stiff; I sewn it on the inside fabric so that I would not have to flip the inside out.

Soft book - textures

This cute fish has ribbons, buttons, plump felt belly, felt scales that you can lift up and fancy machine stitches on silky shimmery fabric. 
Inspiration: this Etsy item.

This time I made 4 textures in a page:
- silky fabric with heavy interfacing
- buttons
- felted and un-felted wool
- cotton wool

I have combined 9 textures in one page, which my mum advises is overwhelming for a young one, so next time I will do with only 4 per page.
Inspiration: this page available from Etsy.
I have used the following materials: 
- pom pom ribbon 
- thick fur
- velvet ribbon
- satin ribbon
- acrylic wash cloth
- buttons
- towel fabric
- bicone beads
- thin leather

Sur le bassin d'Arcachon

A few pictures from the "bassin d'Arcachon" where we spent a few days. The bassin is tidal and empties itself twice a day.
