Stitched with Love

My name is Lisa, I live and work in a little town outside of Bristol. I'm a full time graphic designer but in my spare time my hobby(and new found passion) is crafting handmade goodies. I create everything from hearts to hedgehogs and bumble bees to campervans! All of my items are designed and made by me in my home.

You can see examples of my work on my shop.. http://www.etsy.com/shop/StitchedWithLoveUK?ref=si_shop






*********************************

MadEmoiselle Sugar  is a Paris based artist who creates eye lingerie (sleepmasks)  and accessories fuelled by a passion for vintage fashion, vintage lingerie and old films. Love Me Sugar was born in 2010 out of a passion for sleepmasks, a lingerie item that she could not live without. When she couldn't find her ideal sleepmask - one that was luxurious as well as adjustable,  she turned to designing her own "avante-garde" sleepmask collection,   inspired by the likes of  Marlene Dietrich, burlesque and pinup.

When she's not watching old films or going to the cinema, you can often find her scouring brocantes in and around Paris, looking for inspiring objects - lace, fabrics, vintage postcards, old bits and pieces, buttons. Inspiration often comes from these found bits and pieces, books or an image in a film, combining new and old, mixing vintage with modern.

"I hope to bring a sense of glamour and empowerment to my products. My sleepmasks are not simply something to cover your face at night, shielding you from the lumiere.  They are more. Soft and elegant ....over your beautiful eyes."

As well as designing I am also the director of the Sexy International Paris Film Festival, a yearly film event which takes place over two nights. I am also a filmmaker having made several short films as well as featuring in Anna Kannava's feature film "Kissing Paris".  I am currently working on expanding my range to include vintage inspired lingerie and very soon...I hope to combine both my filmmaking skills and my products into a short film.

GREEN BUBBLES HOME
I make alternative, all-natural products for bath, body, and home.  I am a happily married mother of two (with another one on the way in September), and am also currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Multimedia Design and Development.  I began researching the chemicals used in our everyday products and was stunned by what I found, and how much of it was completely unnecessary.  I use the products I make every day, and so does my family, and I feel much, much better about them using what I make as opposed to the commercial products that contain harsh additives and dyes!  It’s better for us, our environment, and even our wallets!

Hand Knitted Baby Cardigan Pattern

By Popular Demand!
This is in one size only - takes for ever to figure out other sizes!
For chest 10" - finished measurements about 14"
Sleeve 3"
You will need:
2 balls of a soft yarn that woks with 3.25mm (US 3 Needles)
A button

tension is 25sts and 50 rows for a 4x4 inch square

If you are a beginner you may not understand this pattern - for more experienced knitters, I am sure you will see the 'pattern' of the decrease rows forming the raglan)
I think this was originally a Debbie Bliss pattern i had written down somewhere so please forgive me if there are any mistakes - as i keep saying, I am hopeless at writing down patterns and i just had some notes on a scrap of paper!


Back
cast on 45 sts
knit until back measures 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at beginning of next 2 rows
leave remaining 37 sts on a spare needle

sleeves (I  knit both at the same time)
cast on 29 sts
K 7 rows
increase:* k3, m1, k to last 4 sts m1, k3
knit 7 rows*
repeat *…

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Switch to stocking stitch (1 row K - right side- 1 row P - wrong side)
Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
K20
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker
K20

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
k 2 rows then with right side facing, k20, CO 16, k20 (shaping the thumb)
next row, (W side) knit …

An easy shawl pattern

I wrote this as i knitted it so if you find any mistakes let me know!


The cast on sts are the top of the shawl, the cast off will be the bottom. This is a very basic pattern that you can then embellish - i used an eyelet pattern on random rows.(k2tog YO) The first stitches should not be slipped (as i usually do when knitting) but knitted.
You can use any yarn you like with its corresponding needles. there really is no gauge
You can also knit it to any size. Just remember that the final amount of stitches you have will be its width and the number of rows you knit will be the length. You can check that on a swatch and calculate accordingly


Cast on 7 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): k2, yo, k1, yo,place marker k1 place marker, yo, k1, yo, k2.
Row 2 (WS): K2 , P to last 2 sts knit last 2 sts (and on all WS)
Row 3 (RS): k2, yo, k to marker, YO, k1,move marker YO, k to last 2 stitches, YO, k2.
and so on


So to give a quick recap.
The 1st 2 sts of every row are always K followed by YO
Before the 1st marker, there…
