Pop-up store project

It was the idea of Celine, one of our writers, to organize a pop-up store on a weekend in December at the Inside hom&interior shop in Luxembourg-City with Made by Fredke. It should give me the opportunity to show to the public the different little handmade treasures that I was creating.


Preparations began after the summer holidays with favorite monster pillows and the dogs. Our little one was happy, thinking that all of these would be for him, to keep him company in bed at nights… Well I had to disappoint him, explaining him the purpose of my sewing!

Than came my denim phase in which I decided to up-cycle our old jeans trousers. So I first cut the jeans into stars of different sizes. Than I sewed the stars with neon sewing thread, linking them with gimp in the same colour to create 2 different sizes of garlands: one with 3 stars for doors and the other one with 5 stars, intended either for the Christmas tree or as a wall decoration. I lost my heart to the pink one, which, if it won’t be sold, I will put on our front door!


Working in the stars, I continued the momentum with my beloved star pillows finally using all the special tissue I collected during some months. I also sewed some bonnets & loop set for the kids, bibs, baby kimonos, dinosaurs, t-shirts, skirts, crowns…


In the end, I am not even sure if I have created enough of all those little treasures…
