During our holidays in Danmark Marianne Blomgren asked me to join her visiting a crafting fair, which was very inspiring: the newest fabric trends, colorful yarn and thread, pretty embroidery and crocheting. At the stall of Continue reading “Horn – a special material”
Ten Days ago I stitched the first autumnal Ballerina by EmbroiderLibrary. Seeing this my daughter wished for Continue reading “Autumn Flowers Ballerinas”
Before our holidays FruBlomgren set up a new contest themed Zakka. Zakka??? Never heard of that, what does it mean? Thanks to wikipedia I learned that Zakka is Continue reading “Zakka-World”
At the beginning of October I visited the Dutch fabric market and was very dissappointed that I could not find an autumnal themed fabric as I wanted to Continue reading “Sneak-Peak: Autumnal Table Runner”
Nowadays mobile phones are a part of everyday live – we use them barely as a telephone but more as camera, for writing, for hearing music, as a watch and as an alarm clock. Just one problem occurs – Continue reading “Resting Place for the Mobile Phone”
As already told I visited the Dutch Fabric Market last year with my sewing friends. While my fabric that I bought then is ripening my friend was quicker and sewed a shirt and a loop out of her fabric. The little left over pieces she gave to me as she knows that I like scraps for doing applications.
Seeing the scraps I immediately knew what to do with them – a small bag fitting to her new outfit. With the ready measurements of 19cm by 19cm it has room for a mobile phone, hankerchiefs and all the other small things that a woman needs for an outing. From my purchases last year I had some faux leather left that matched her fabric perfectly and so this little bag developed with the wonderful designs by FruBlomgren on a blank in-the-hoop bag by RockQueen – and of course with a motivational saying, as we hard working mothers need it from time to time. Thank God, greens are not my colours otherwise I might have kept that sweet little bag to myself.
At least I made up my mind and have the resolution that until the next market in Mai I will use one of my fabric for a dress or shirt and make myself a similar matching bag!
A woman can never have to many bags. Since I own an embroidery machine and tried for the first time an in the hoop made zipper bag I am doing zippper bags for every occasion. So I did one for my Continue reading “Bag in a Bag”
Such a wonderful golden autumn! When I was sewing a dress for myself in May I did not think that I would have so many opportunies to wear it this year. I rarely wear dresses but at a visit at the Dutch fabric market I had seen a panel that I immediately fell in love with: an Continue reading “Cat Dress”
