Une touche de bleu

Plus que quelques minutes avant la fin de ce vendredi, juste le temps de poster mes photos pour le Friday Foto Friends de Debbie. Cette semaine a été particulièrement chargée au travail et j’ai bien cru que je ne serais jamais prête ! La couleur de la semaine dernière fut le rouge, celle d’aujourd’hui sera le bleu.

Only a few minutes left before the end of the day and I must hurry to post my Friday photos for Debbie’s challenge. These last days have been very busy at work and I thought I would never be ready!
Last week’s colour was red for my Friday Foto Friends, and today will be blue.

Bleu comme la couleur des iris qui sont déjà fanés mais que j’ai immortalise par quelques clichés.

Blue like the colour of irises which have already faded but whose beauty will remain on my photos.



Bleu clair comme le tissu que j’ai trouvé il y a deux semaines par hasard et pour lequel j’ai craqué. Ce fut l’occasion de penser à une nouvelle boîte à couture, la mienne débordant avec les ciseaux et bobines qui ne tiennent plus dedans. 

Light blue like the fabric that I found by chance in a shop two weeks ago. I loved it at first sight and imagined it could be used for a sewing box that I really needed, mine being full and over brimming with scissors and reels. 


Mais le coupon de tissu n’était pas bien grand et c’était le seul qu’il restait dans le magasin. Autant dire qu’il a fallu faire attention à ne pas se louper, ce qui n’a pas été chose facile, surtout au moment de coller le tissu sur la boîte en bois. Les motifs comportent beaucoup de lignes et un collage de biais se remarque tout de suite si elles ne suivent pas les arêtes de la boîte. 

But it was a very small piece of fabric, the only one in the shop, so I had to be careful not to waste it. It was not an easy task to glue it on the plain wood box because the pattern has lines and you immediately see if the fabric is not glued perfectly straight and parallel to the edges of the box.



Par ailleurs, les feuilles de papier fantaisie imitation bois n’étaient pas aussi larges que les tiroirs. J’ai donc fabriqué des étiquettes pour cacher les raccords et collé quelques breloques sur le thème de la couture.

Besides, the sheets of paper imitating dark wood were not wide enough to cover the whole length of the drawers. So I fancied some labels to cover and hide the joints and glued a few sewing charms.

  2. Beautiful blue Irises, Sandrine. Your garden must be a vision at the moment. Love the fabric for your sewing accoutrements drawers. It teams perfectly with the wood-like paper. The little fabric labels are such a lovely idea, as are the addition of the little sewing charms.

  20. I love Iris. I have many Siberian Iris in my garden and in my ponds. They are also called Cuckoos tears.
    You did a wonderful job with the sewing box and now have made me want to try making one as well! I like it so much.

  21. Thank you, Annie! The name for the Siberian Iris is very poetic and your garden must be very beautiful with a pond in it! That was my first box made with fabric and I think I will make some more as presents for Christmas. I hope you will enjoy making a box too!
