Hey Ho Pirates

After a long time finally a photo of my crochet bag. There are two bags for two card decks in the pirate look. Both bags are held together by a snap fastener and at the front of one of the bags with a pirate button. It was really a fumble and was separated umpteen times.

Vaccination Book Sleeve

Here is a picture of my prototype of the vaccination book sleeve for dogs. I hope that fits ...

Hair Bands

After all previous hair bands were claimed by my girl, I eventually had to make new ones. 


Treat Bag for Dogs

So, this is my latest self-creation. A bag for dog treats. My brother asked for such a bag.

The bag should:

- Carry enough treats

- Have a carabiner to hang on the belt loops

- Have a drawstring to close fast

- Be in a camouflage design

Well, brother ... tata .. I hope you like it!

Although I had to piece camouflage material to a whole, but it looks even better.

Messenger Tote Bag

My work is now finished. A bag for a visit to Grandma. Now my little girl can carry her belongings in a stylish way. However, I still need to find a huge button for the strap, which has become quite large *gg*

Kati the Second Version

The first Kati didn't really fit anymore so I sewed another one. Here I used the special chenille technic on the back pockets. Here you can find a tutorial. And these pants fit ;o)

The very First Day at School

here in Germany we throw a big party for the very first day at school.
Each child which is invited gets a cone filled with treats and little presents. Here are some hair bands, Pixi Cases and a crackling book for a baby which I made for this purpose. The crackling book was really hard. It wrecked me a needle and somehow it does not look like I wanted it to.  :o

Happy Lantern

I'm always excited when I see what pretty things my little girl is tinkering in kindergarten.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, there was a dress that belonged to a little girl. Then the little girl grew up and the dress wasn't needed anymore. Before the dress got too sad I used the fabric to sew a bag to put some "Pixi Books" in it. Here I found the tutorial. Now the dress found a new meaning in life. ;o)

Yorik With and Without a Hood

Let me introduce a pattern called "Yorik". It's from farbenmix and very easy to sew. The first shirt I  made of some scraps. The second shirt is without a hood and made of some fleece blanket.
