My Nick Cave version of the Betsy Bag, tutorial from Para Noire.

This handbag pattern is an absolut must have.

I just love it, it s so versatile and you can use it in so many different ways ( i already made it in printed cotton, luxurious black velvet, vintage fabric from old curtains, and this time silk)

I wanted a special, small and light handbag to take with me for the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds gigs I will attempt in a few weeks in the US.

I decided to personalize it with the name of their last record: Push the Sky Away and to embroider it in blue black sequins with gold thread .

Here is the result!


You will find the tutorial with the free pattern here:

A personnalized zipper pouch, video tutorial from Craftsy

I really love zipper pouches, they are very practicle to use and you never have too much, but they also are very nice handmade gifts for friends.

I wanted to make something special for someone very special: the son of a friend of mine.

That boy, Tristan, (aka Mini Nick!) is a talented artist, doing painting, drawings, music, videos and even writing beautiful texts.

I then decided to simply use the title of his last miscellany and to embroider it on the front of the pouch.

I just wrote a few words inside to make it even more personnal.

The fabric I used outside is a vintage linen sheet that I dyed.

I really love how this turns out as the colour is not perfect but it s a living colour.

Having already dyed a lot of vintage sheets , I know it will even evolved and change with the time and sun exposure.

I used this very good video tutorial from Craftsy, it s one of their free mini classes and like all their classes , it is clear and very well done.,5

It is also a very good start on how to put a zipper for someone who never did it before……

I met Tristan and his lovely parents in Lyon last summer at an amazing gig of Nick Cave and really hope to share more moments like this one with them in the future…….




The way I walk is just the way I walk!

One of my favorite band ever ( and highly missed since the singer Lux Interior is dead), is The Cramps.
From the retro aesthetics, to the music, the performance, sens of humor and palpable humanity, THAT WAS A GREAT BAND!
This live in Napa Mental Hospital is amazing and really touches me everytime I watch it.

Un de mes groupes préférés , depuis bien longtemps, est The Cramps.
Ils manquent beaucoup, depuis le décès de leur chanteur, Lux Interior.
Leur style rétro, leur esthétique, leur musique, leur performance scénique, leur sens de l humour et la très grande humanité qui se dégageait, bref tout en faisait UN GRAND GROUPE!
Ce live dans l hopital psychiatrique de Napa est incroyable et m émeut, chaque fois que je le regarde.



God probably hates you, but I LL LOVE YOU FOR EVA!



WE REAL COOL, Best sewing song always?

A song whose first words are:
“Who took your measurements
From your toes to the top of your head”
Could probably be in the Top Ten of the best sewing songs!
That' s why I chose these lyrics as a king of welcoming prayer glued to my sewing room s door!
Enjoy that amazing performance by Nick Cave, a very special moment for me….

Une chanson qui commence par:
“Who took your measurements
From your toes to the top of your head”

Peut figurer sans problème dans le Top des chansons de la Couturière!
C' est pour cela que j ai choisi ces mots comme un hymne de Bienvenue collé à la porte de mon atelier!
Délectez vous de cette superbe performance de Nick Cave, un moment personnel très intense…..



Couture & Rock’n’Roll?

Why not, why not?


Entre mes tutoriaux, je vais aussi vous parler de ce que j' aime, la musique et surtout le Rock, a une part très importante dans ma vie.

Les concerts m' ont permis de voyager et rencontrer des amis qui me sont très chers aujourd' hui.

Ok, il y a un artiste dans mon coeur, bien au dessus des autres: Nick Cave!

Tous ceux qui l ' ont vu au moins une fois en concert comprennent forcément pourquoi……pour les autres: VOILA POURQUOI!


In between the tutorials, let me talk about the things I love, music and especially Rock, has a big part in my life.

Thanks to gigs I travelled and met lovely people who are close to my heart today.

Well, there is the ONE & ONLY ( dixit Tatjana!), far, far beyond others: Mr Nick Cave!

Anyone who saw him live at least once for sure can understand why, ……..for the others: HERE' S WHY!



NICK CAVE- the carny- from her to eternity.
