You maybe remember my first “Craft with Racaire” project #1. The needle roll tutorial with German Brick Stitch embroidery which I recently posted. I was very pleased with my new German Brick Stitch pattern and the finished embroidery for the first needle roll. Furthermore I also tremendously enjoyed working with the beautiful new silk/wool thread I just got from the yarn shop. Like always, this are more then enough great reasons for me to became playful and creative. This time I decided to play around with my German Brick Stitch pattern #2 and to try out two new pattern ideas I had on my mind. The German Brick Stitch pattern #2 is already a simplified version of my German Brick Stitch pattern #1 and both new…

Medieval Embroidery Basics – how to start a new thread / “sew in the thread” :)
I normally don’t care much about the “basic” techniques I use because… Well, actually there is no because – I “just”use them. Though they come rather natural to me, it seems like they are not so basic to others like I thought. While I was chatting with a member of my blog about my recent tutorials, I was rather surprised to get to know that what I considered “common” knowledge was rather new to her. Therefore I decided for the future also to take a look at my simple and basic steps and to share them from time to time. I am starting today by adding the new category “Basic” to…

This posting is about: “how to make fast and easy tassels…” …at the end of a cord. Yes, there is a very fast and rather easy way to make this cute small tassels which you can see at the picture underneath: …and here a description of what you need and how you can make them:
Craft with Racaire – Project #1 – Step 4 – medieval finishing technique for the border :)
Ok, first we started with some embroidery and embroidered a nice “stripe” of fabric using a medieval embroidery technique – “German Brick Stitch” for our very first “Craft with Racaire” project – a small embroidered needle-roll. …and yesterday I showed you in my detailed photo tutorial how to assemble the needle-roll. Today I put together another very detailed photo tutorial for you. In this photo tutorial I will show you a nice medieval (or like some people like to call it: “period”) technique for the seam treatment at the borders.
Craft with Racaire – Project #1 – Step 3 – basic assembling of the needle-roll
Welcome to step 3.1 of my first project for “Craft with Racaire” – this time we assemble the needle-roll. In my opinion needle-rolls are a perfect little gift for everyone who uses needles in one way or another. Years ago I got my very first needle roll from my dear friend Gunnhild from Hamburg. It already shows several signs of usage because I took it with me wherever I travelled. To Germany, Finland, England, Sweden and even to the USA. This lovely small needle roll still contains all my sewing and embroidery needles and reminds me of my friend and the events we both went to…
Sneak Peak – Craft with Racaire – Needle-roll #1
Great news! I just finished my Craft with Racaire – Project #1 – needle-roll #1. …and I took more than plenty pictures for some nice tutorials for you. Pictures like the ones of how I assembled the needle-roll and how I made this small tassels. They are just waiting for me to turn them into some nice tutorials for you. 🙂 My project #2 is also already finished – my gaming pouch for my 14th century backgammon game box – I just need to take some pictures of the finished pouch for you as soon as I find some time for it.
Craft with Racaire – Needle-roll #1 & German Brick Stitch Pattern #2
Embroidery comes rather naturally to me but I learned during my last 9 years of blogging, holding classes at SCA events and explaining techniques to friends that unfortunately not everyone is also as fortunate. In the past this was just one more reason for me to make tutorials and to share my knowledge and my technique “insights” on my blog. As long as I can handle a camera, a tablet and a computer I won’t stop doing it, I promise. Nevertheless, as some people could tell you who already met me in real life, I just love “talking” about my craft & hobby. Posting on my blog is just another…

Craft with Racaire – Needle-roll #1
Before I “restarted” my new blog, I told a friend of mine that I have many possible projects I could start with for my new section “Craft with Racaire”. I told her that I could start with a German Brick Stitch needle-roll, a Klosterstich needle-book, a 12th century fillet, a Reliquary box with bead embroidery based on a rather rare 13th century Pearl Ciborium or based on a period extant piece, another pull-over dress/underdress with revisiting my last recent pattern, a tight fitted bliaut, a linen veil with a period bird pattern, the “We have Dragons” project, a pouch, a hood with daggings,… – just to name a few possibilities.…
Medieval Embroidery – German Brick Stitch Pattern #1
After all the hours which I spent working at German Brick Stitch chart(s) today and yesterday, I am happy to say that I just finished the German Brick Stitch Pattern #2 for my first “Craft with Racaire” project. But this is Pattern #2 and I haven’t re-uploaded Pattern #1 yet – therefore I decided to start with my German Brick Stitch Pattern #1. I am quite sure some of you will remember the pattern and/or my handout with the pattern chart, which you can see at the picture on the left side. I uploaded it to my blog and a download link for it can be found at the new…
