What’s in a name?

October 16, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

What’s in a name? Well, you could ask Shakespeare what the blazes he was banging on about, or you could ask Emma Lamb. She makes the awesomest modern-vintage (work that one out) crocheted garlands and goodies – and names them all. Wouldn’t you like to take home a Daisy or an Esme? Or a Flora or an Edna? I don’t know how they smell, but they sure are sweet.

For good and not evil

February 5, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

Mesdames Mitchell and Dent advocate the use of crochet for good and not evil. Evil: toilet roll dollies, very small bikinis, and cuff and collar ‘jewellery’ combinations. Good: granny rugs, doilies and of course, lovely deer wall hangings. You can buy this pattern from Re Rae and help put the world to rights.

Bear with me

But only if you want to look very silly (and a little bit cute). Crocheted bear ear headphone covers, what every girl needs.

Cardigan weather is upon us here in Perth, Western Australia.
I might even get one out for my sofa.

The lovely Ashley sent us this adorable ad and we loved it so much we simply had to share it with you. It’s a real *purl-er*.

Good yarn

March 8, 2010 / By Mademoiselle Michelle / 5 comments

Being International Women’s Day today it seems quite appropriate that the Mesdames will be taking lessons in one of the more feminine arts of crocheting from the lovely Ashley at tonight’s Cotton Club. Here’s hoping that we can (eventually) be making things as lovely as these fine examples from Dottie Angel.

An obsession with vintage doilies has seen Jean Lee from Ladies & Gentlemen put her crochet skills to good use. These full size area rugs are hand knotted with cotton rope using vintage doily patterns. We like it when people think big.
