Packing my suitcase and taking with me … Mugrugs

During our summer holiday we missed our mugrugs. Now we knew that our holiday home here was having glass tables I absolutely needed to make some mugrugs. And as Halloween is in the middle of our holiday the mugrugs had to be themed Halloween (embroidery designs by FruBlomgren, Kreative Kiwi and EmbroiderLibrary). Also, the little skeleton doll (design by FruBlomgren) that Marianne  Continue reading “Packing my suitcase and taking with me … Mugrugs”

Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a beach bag

When the four of us go to the beach then we need a big bag for our picnic blanket, towels, swimsuits, drinks and all the other stuff necessary for a good stay at the beach. Of course I have several patterns for such a bag and maybe some fabric, too. But as it is the time was missing to sew and so I jazzed up our simple, blue, bought bag and took Marianne for a stroll at the beach (design by FruBlomgren). And in doing so, I brought Continue reading “Packing my suitcase and taking with me … a beach bag”

Additional bags on the outside of a bag

Since the children are old enough to carry their bags themselves, I like to take my big camera with me on excursions and journeys. Thanks to the in-the-hoop zipper bags I now have a place to store the accessoires that do not fit into the camera bag at the strap of it. I mde a small bag for the rechargeable batteries (design by EmbroideryDesigns), that is waterproof through a piece of transparent plastic table cloth. Additionally Continue reading “Additional bags on the outside of a bag”

A new life for old clothing

My daughter has several friends that we sew with from time to time. And the girls like it so much, that they ask for their sewing meetings. Therefore some time ago a friend of hers brought some old clothes with her and asked to use them for sewing. As a woman never has enough bags the girls decided to sew a bag – Nanes tote which is a simple but pretty bag of which I had found a hand drawn pattern in a comment of a facebook article. To be able to Continue reading “A new life for old clothing”
