Friendly to nature

Friendly to nature, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Eco friendly fabrics from JoAnns! The best part about that is I can use coupons for 50% or 40% off, so the price is way better then online.
The bamboo knit top is based on one of my favorite patterns from Burda. It is out of Burda WOF Magazine issue 10/1998. The cotton-bamboo poplin pants are based on Model no. 125 from Burda WOF 06/2008. I really am not a fan of these pants. High waist line and very large legs with that pleat in front, will not sew it again…

I have searched forever for some simple buttons to use and after looking at a few priced over 5$ I have finally found these geometric wood buttons for .50c 🙂 they go with the eco friendly.



Finished the insides with a simple satin ribbon with a honey comb stitch. It will keep the raw edge from fraying and it adds some appeal without being bulky.

The Golden Label, originally uploaded by fmirela.

4″X4″ Embroidered Custom Label!

Digitized and embroidered logo, using Brother HE 120, with Sulky metallic thread and a special needle for metallic threads.

I have to work more on embroidering text using script fonts that have been shrunk .

The satin frame is done separately without removing the fabric from the hoop.

I have cut around the border and this is now hand sewn to the back of my Jeans Jacket, on the underside.

Here is the machine at work, finishing the border:
