The almost empty picked Advent Calendar

was filled itself ... this time from mum, in the form of a moose * gg *I got the moose from here and "pimped" it a little bit.Sanded antlers, so it appears lighter and the grain of the wood emerges. sanded just the face. Paint over it-Done!
The bags had made my sister of eternal time ago and are now even been used.

Finally finished ...

is now my Dirndl, which I sewed in a course.

In addition there was a pocket for handkerchiefs and a mini bag according to the instructions of Stella Luna.

Out of the ordinary ..

you can with this gift? Frame covered with fabric and tinkered car and crown as a 3D application. The unsightly fold above disappears under a flower to iron on.

Advent - decoration from child

I think I've inherited my creativity. Here is an overview of various craft work from my daughter.
 An angel gift bag.

A moose table napkin ring. That's really sweet ...

An angel-star chain.

 Penguin in a winter landscape.The penguin is a pin and the cap is a twisted wool cord.

Here again from the side.

Last year we had a Christmas wreath in black / silver. Unfortunately I have no pictures of it, but a little decoration by this whreat is returned for use again this year.


Fir with silver glitter glue. The chess board in the background is also homemade, but I will show later

Two Years ago around this Time

I had "pepped up" an old dollhouse. A friend has given it to me, because her children were no longer playing with it.

The restoration secretly took place in the basement so my daugther wouldn't find out about it.

Befor the restoration

After the restoration

New Bracelets

I have done ... as a small order for a friend. I have not taken a photo of all. Four more bracelets will follow.  ; o)

Why so quiet?

This is the fabric that I want to process in a course to learn how to sew a dirndle over the next few weeks.

 The pink blouse is only for testing! Everything still under construction ... but it is taking shape.

This bag I have made from an old pair of my jeans.
The post is linked up to old Jeans new Bag.

Bird Houses

I not only working on my sewing machine. I 'am also able to work with other tools. I've built these bird houses.

Crayon Roll

I sewed a crayon roll. Above, I have sewn a flap so that the head of the crayons do not break. For the picture I had to use fiber painters ;o)

Instead of wrapping paper ...

... there is a "RatzFatz" bag.

There I placed all the gifts for my nephew. To the Yorik shirt there is a self-created flaps headband and a coloring book. I hope he like the gifts.

The headband was a wish. It should fit under the helmet and keep the ears warm.

I promised

... I show you today the homework book cover (what a word * gg *)

* tataaa *

The butterfly fabric had to serve for two cases. The best friend wanted one too. : o)

The interior was simple with white. Between inner and outer fabric, I have inserted a suitably tailored piece of plastic. Just stitched around and again in the middle of a seam. Then the sleeve is a little more stable.

Sometimes Sh** happens

I promised my daughter a new dress for her homework book. Well then, let's go. Now my address book has a new cover. Why? If I create some new patterns I try out a sample piece. This one, for example. To detect possible mistakes and to avoid next time.

I made the mistake that I have indeed calculated the wrapping, but  I did not increase the height by a few millimeters. My address book in A5 is outside robust enough to manage the small cover. Now I knew the right dimensions of the cover and the next time I show you the new dress of the homework book. ;o)

Like it ?

DS case for my best friend. I create the pattern by myself. I only had the dimensions of the device and the games. Three games with cover loosely fit inside the bag and the belt closed the case. I'm already a little proud of myself * grin * I hope I still get pictures with content * wink *

Where is the mistake?

 I've tried a roll folder for crayons.
Hm ... ok but something does not fit. Well you see it?




Yes I have done a tie
to each side. * gg * The roll folder was still good but it was simply converted into a pencil skirt. * laughs *

The role I had sewn up a little longer so that you can fold it and the head of the crayons do not break.

You're my Star

I folded this star at christmas time.

Many tutorials for Origami you can found here. *klick*

Eat more fruit!

From polymer clay fruits and vegetables  for the Barbie dolls was kneaded. Pieces of cheese for calcium are enough.There are also oranges, blueberries, tomatoes, bananas and eggs. Well then the Barbie dolls stay healthy * gg *


 The ebook by Beate for gardeners bag can be suitable for men. My friend did not want to have this bag . Why that? Here is the version for the entire XBox stuff of my friend. (ok, a little bit of stuff is by me * gg *). I have extended the bag by 4 small pockets (for my micros) and made it bigger.

And ... because the pattern is so great I wanted to make a bag for my knittings. However, I was so confused that I had forgotten the handle. Well, thought I'd turn that off to the side. Now, the bag looks like a little bunny * laugh *

Now that Dad and Mom had a bag so my girl wanted to have a bag too. I promised her to sew one. But if I had known before that she did not have the bag for herself ...







then ... I would have saved me the fiddly job. * gg *

Here the bag up close. Ugh ... looks good in the Barbie room. Now I am afraid that I may sew more for the lovely lady and her family ...
