Best of DIY 2014

Caro from this website and Misses Cherry , asked for a best of DIY in 2014. Here are my favorite DIY of this year.

I sewed a lot of bags. Most of them cause of the TS II sew along with Emma and farbenmix. I love the "Hunter and Prey" costume with the dead zebra bag.

And of cause I sewed a lot of clothes, sometimes even for myself. But most clothes are for the kid's.

The king sized blanket and the matching pillow for my daugther was the first huge project in 2014.

And I sewed much of presents. Most of all is the relaxing neck pillow from Sew4Home.

Christmas Review Part VI

So that's the last presents I sewed for Christmas. I sewed a relaxing neck pillow for a boy and two others for a girl. The pattern is from Sew4Home and is free. For the kid's I resized the pattern to 80 %.

And all of these preparations for Christmas are the reason why you don't hear or read something from me in the last month :o)

Christmas Review Part III

For my mother-in-law I sewed a "Sew Together Bag" for her knitting needles and other needlework stuff. This time I sewed the bag a little bit larger than the first one and it only wracked me two needles of my sewing machine ;o)
