Tralala Collection

This is a small collection of whimsical designs that comes to us from France. Something about them is endearing... all the skinny legs, all the big berries and flowers... the scalloped borders... I just love 'em! Offered in chart format, the instructions are written in French, with those recognizable DMC floss color numbers! I believe most of them call for overdyed floss dyed by Tra La La.

I purchased Joyeux Noel with the hand-dyed threads... but not the rest, as it really sky-rocketed the prices. (I'm looking at the overdyed floss... it is a cotton... looks just like Gentle Art, Weeks or Crescent... and as all the designs are cute, and I'm sure you can find fun fabrics and threads already in your stash for these! I just *had to have them!*

Charts by Tra La La... some cute designs for you Paris-Lovers! Stitch the Little Black Dress piece to decorate your closet door or inside wall -- if you have a big closet! Might be cute in the Laundry room too!!!

La Parisenne is sweet and would make a cute photo-album cover. Just fun designs about 100 stitches square each... offered in chart format and coded for DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

What a pretty, wild tulip basket -- a flowing vine along with a couple of hungry blackbirds! From Tra La La, this is one of three new designs we have. I love the curves in this -- it measures 92 x 100 in size and is shown in summery colors. Picture it with those same black birds and rusty flowers with a golden alphabet... the shape of the design is really good, you can fit it to lots of color schemes.

Directly from France... the chart is coded for DMC and Sampler Threads. That's all I can read -- but it's enough! Make sure to see our other new offerings by Tra La La!

We have two new designs by Tra La La... absoulutely the cutest things... one for Christmas and one for winter.

  • *Ma petite deco de Noel* has 4 separate designs inside -- Pere Noel is the Santa and he's 67 x 107 stitches. There is a tiny white bird in a snowglobe way at the top -- it's precious and measures only 35 x 32 stitches! La renne is the reindeer, he's got a border and presents and a little Christmas bird perched on his antlers -- he measures 43 x 83 stitches and finally, the little angel -- she's 47 x 87. Really cute designs, all are coded for DMC floss.

  • *Sous la neige (bleu)* is a snowman scene that measures 65 x 149. Coded for DMC, the colors are 310, 921, 3777, 931, 3862, 3371, 926 and 422 -- so lots of greyed blue and creamy off-white in here. Just a cute, fresh, unique look, this is offered as a chart.


  • ABC Noel from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more ABC Noel
    CUTE! With a stitch count of 65 x 131 -- you can stitch this on any count fabric you want -- go over one or two threads. The chart calls for Gentle Art Sampler Threads, and I think the whole piece would love to be embellished with buttons and possibly a few glistening beads in the snowlfakes???

    Offered as the chart, over one on 28ct, it would finish approx 2-1/4 x 4-1/2!


    Comme un Oisen from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more Comme un Oisen
    What a pretty urn with the explosion of flowers -- such a classic sampler-motif type of piece. This needs to be made into a pin cushion stuffed with crushed walnut shells - so it feels soft and heavy.

    A stitch count of 49 x 85 offers a petite design that is worked in Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Briar Rose, Heirloom Gold, Dried Thyme, Old Red Paint, Old Purple Paint and DMC 3371.


    C'estl'ete & C'estle Printemps from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more
    C'estl'ete & C'estle Printemps
    Spring and Summer? Don't know... but I like the gazebo surrounded with the lavish garden blooms of flowers and strawberries!

    85 x 89 inch stitch count, charted in DMC!

    Carre' de Printemps
    I'm sure this must say *Spring* on it... I love that little bunny section! 85 x 87 Stitch count, it uses 3722, 3781, 778, 3012, 646 and 3051. Pretty colors!

    Carre' d' Hiver
    Season of Winter? I think the snowman, tree and reindeer would all make cute Christmas ornaments -- especially over one, and finished with a ruched ribbon edge treatment.

    Another one I cannot pronounce! I think it's Garden of Spring... because it is a companion to Garden of Summer! A 79 x 149 stitch count... everything about this is charming!!!
