Greetings to all needle artists and supporters!
Welcome to NeedleWorkMonday Community’s 106th Featured Posts!

This is a weekly curation showcasing the needlework of our very own HIVEians.

Every Monday we get together to share our love and passion for the needle arts, posting from the NeedleWorkMonday Community and using the #needleworkmonday tag. On all other days we use the #needlework tag. We enjoy each other’s creations, ideas, patterns, tips and shortcuts.

Let us as a community, continue to show our love and support by visiting and commenting on each other's work while inspiring one another with the beautiful works of needle art that we do. Nothing makes a heart happier than to read a supportive comment from a fellow member!


A crafter's heart is filled with joy when they have created something with their own hands. There are a lot of tools for us - from simple needles over crochet hooks and knitting needles to electrical ones like a sewing machine. There were a lot of interesting and educating posts this week, but I decided to make a "special edition" dedicated to sewing, showing the different projects that can be made, that not everything will run smoothly but that you can get a good result nevertheless. Here are our featured posts this week!

A bike shirt for a small bike fan by @akipponn


Kids grow and need new clothing all the time. @akipponn decided to make a new shirt for her bike-loving daughter and bought a lovely fabric. Isn't it great that kids are small, and we can afford to splurge a bit and buy a good, long-lasting fabric! She used a pattern that she made before, where she knew she would get a good result - and I'm sure her daughter will love wearing that shirt!

Though I'm a bit curious to see whether she comes up with an idea for the fabric of the old shirt - it still looks very good...


How to transform an ill-fitting dress into a cropped blouse by @neumannsalva


And others still dream of the perfect pattern, which will work with your favorite kinds of fabric and bring a wearable result. @neumannsalva is still on her quest for that elusive treasure and shows us what she learned from her latest attempt: There's always a way to rescue at least parts of it. She now has a beautiful top made of this lovely fabric with all the butterflies on it :) And here again I'm sure she will find some purpose for the discarded skirt of the dress.


Making a black lace brassiere by @lauramica


Again a first try for a pattern, with much less fabric - which doesn't make things easier. The smaller the parts, the more exact you have to work. @lauramica made a beautiful bra and shows us again: Yes, you can make underwear yourself!

Lovely curation!! I love this special edition of sewing features!! Thanks @muscara for highlighting these quality posts :)

Thank you NeedleWorkMonday team for featuring my post with other great posts! Yes, we can afford good fabric for small kids ... and I must say we also can finish projects before we loose motivation as their clothes are small 😁I cannot say the same for underwear. I may need tolerance to finish a delicate one like @lauramica's but I want to try to make mine in the near future!

Thank you @akipponn! Yes, it requires a bit of patience but it is not impossible! I hope you can make your own underwear soon. For my part I only made a baby dress once, I would have to continue practicing with other clothes :)

Thanks to all the @needleworkmonday team and @muscara for including my work in this post! I'm very happy. ❤️❤️ Congratulations to all the artists!

I am amazed at your precise work with tiny lace parts (ok for my underwear the parts would not be tiny... more on the huge side because my booty is a tad wide:-DDD) I love how your underwear turned out <3

Thank you so much @neumannsalva ❤️❤️. I keep practicing, but I really enjoy doing it. And the good thing about making your own underwear is that it can be tiny as you want 😂

I loved all this creation. You are fantastic.

Thank you for featuring my post and hopefully I will get some inventive ideas on how to rescue the skirt fabric. And the elusive good fitting pattern... you may have seen on my insta account, there is another dress which needs rescuing :-DDD

Congratulations to three of them @akipponn @neumannsalva @lauramica
These all posts are of quality and should have been featured.

In case of @akipponn, its really nice to bike lovers friend. Much love.
From @neumannsalva's post any one can learn how to combine with blouse. Good step by step post
@lauramica, its creativity of making new design.
