The Shepherd's sisters

It has been two years since we have made the pleasant discovery of the Shepherd's sisters.


They grew up surrounded by a creative atmosphere since their whole family enjoyed creating together.

It took them 28 years to create the huge needle work store they are today !

It seems that the sisters never run out of ideas, so they never stop creating.

Lavender cushions


Lavender is in bloom! Its smells is just perfect and flowers are now waiting for our little burlaps!

Img 1094

This year,I will sew mini linen cushions with a 'Lavender' textile tag.

I have a beautiful botanic book that I'am never tired of looking .... lavender drawings are there of course!


Img 1079

Here they are, a little modified and adapted to the size of the cushions I wanted to make.


Lavande 4     Lavande   Lavande 2

I printed them on textile. It is very simple if your printer allows it. Just tape a piece of linen (I used a cream linen) on a sheet of paper. 
Use our designs and launch your printer. The inks will not be fixed and may disappear with water. Realization of the cushion:

What you need:

- 2 pieces of linen (18x11 cm)

- accessories (button, lace or any accessory you like)

-Lavender of course

Center & sew the printed tag on on piece of linen. Sew your button.

Place both rectangles of linen, right side on right side.

Sew them, leave a small side open.

Turn the cushion on the right side, iron it slightly and fill it with lavender.


Img 1080

Close the opened side using invisible stitches.

I wish you a nice & perfumed summer!


folding furoshiki way

You have small pieces of fabrics that hang out and you don't know how to use them, discover the art of Furoshiki!


Furoshiki, traditional technique of Japanese packaging, is the art of reusing fabrics and textils
for decorative and creative projects. 
It is an ecological and original alternative in gift wrapping for your family and friends or just for your own fun.
I had the opportunity to test this art by taking inspiration from various tutorials and fabrics that were hanging in
my workshop. It requires a little patience but it's worth it and l was really proud of my little gift wrap.
Discover them, l use few of our buttons, tags, or you can also use ribbons, cards..

Heart in hand

I am glad to show you the amazing work of an american designer that I especially like: Cecilia Turner.

Bluebirds nest med 2

She is the founder and designer of Heart in Hand Needleart.

The company was founded in 1994 and is famous today for its different crossstitch designs, kits or leaflets.

We admire the attention she puts in details through her crosstitch artwork. Here, each element brings more personality and depth to the sheet she imaginated. 

Buttons had, sometimes, the chance and opportunity to slide through them, in order to blend with the atmosphere of a design made in america.

Sheep pocket

Hop Hop Hop!

Here is a good idea to use your new sheep buttons.


Be inspired by our design to realise some embroideries on a linen. Use backstitches and knot stitches for the red "fruits".

Sew all on a nice pocket or a bag you will make. I like linen fabric because it goes well with the light brown color of the sheeps.

Sew all buttons, a lace and the fabric of course, included in the pack.... Photo sendinblue



It is easy!




"Summer cherries" Door hanger

It's summertime and we love our garden, take some time off to stitch!

Here is our new door hanger 'Cherry time" (Le temps des cerises) ;a really easy idea to realize.


You will need:

Some buttons (ref TB63) 

some of your favourite fabrics : cream cotton for the central panel, printed fabric 

a nice lace

a lace to hold the cushion

A needle, some embroidery threads assorted to your fabrics, cissors, a water erasable pencil for fabrics and all materials you usually have to sew.

A sheet of Cottonjet: a special fabric you can use in your regular printer (follow all instructions of each brand).

We used this fabric to print the text "Le temps des cerises". 



Cut a rectangle of cream fabric for the central panel.

Transfer the design of our packaging on the panel, using an erasable pencil.

 Make your embroideries using the following stitches (using 1 stand of the embroidery thread) :

- Laisy Daisy stitches for the tree and leaves   Cerise1


- backstitches for the grass                                       Cerise2


- running stitches for the tree and around the leaves 

You can add the printed fabric included in our pack of buttons to the back of the embroidered panel, or just a nice lace.

Sew all buttons as well as the Cottonjet text.

Cut 2 stripes of fabrics: 20.5x9 cm and add 1/2 cm for seam allowances.

  Sew them on each side of the central panel.

  Place a nice fabric (for the back of the cushion) on the central panel, right side on right side.

Sew 3 edges, leave the upper one open.

Turn the cushion on the right side. Iron it and fill it.

 Close the open edge using invisible running stitches. Place your lace to hold your nice door hanger.

Have fun doing it!
