Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

Hygge Clothes

I finally made two garments that I can actually wear ( I won’t show you the others), a tunic and a mantle:

The shapes are actually plain and simple. I should have opted for this design from the beginning, it would have saved me some precious fabrics. I’m going to stick to these personal templates from now on, introducing just a few very small variations here and there but without taking any risk.

Composite Weave

I was weaving with King Cole Country Tweed yarn and although I like this shade very much, there was no magic.

It just didn’t work with my merino warp yarn. So after 50 cm, I decided to try something else. I think this particular tweed yarn will work better with a dark brown warp. I’ve come back to composing with one main yarn and lots of different ornamental yarns here and there. This is my favourite type of weaving. And I also get to add shiny things! Only 10 days til I travel to France for two weeks. I’ll be very busy with sewing and pretty much nothing else (but I still want to watch Wallace and Gromit again, I’ve developed a fondness for these characters). The good news is that I’m getting now slightly better at sewing (I’ve also simplified the hand-made template that I use).

Progress

There are a few fabrics I meant to take pictures of, and here they are:

And I also worked all day with a prototype as a base for all my garments. It took me the whole day! I’m eager to see whether or not it will work with fabric. I may have to adjust it again.

This kind of work, I don’t know why, is very difficult for me. I find it extremely tedious. But if I’m lucky, I might not have to do it ever again. A good base will work fine with any alteration.

Marble Yarn

Marble yarns really are my favourite. A work in progress on my loom:

I’m in love with my hand-woven fabrics. The more I weave, the less I feel like wearing anything else. My only problem is… my tailoring skills. I messed up two wonderful fabrics, it was a disaster and I’m now very reluctant to cut into these little treasures. But I’m working on it. I bought myself the cheapest fabric I could find so I could train without too much damage. I’ve always loved beautiful clothes, it’s like wearing the stuff of fairy tales…

I’m really glad I took to weaving. There are infinite possibilities and so many beautiful yarns out there.
