Elsa Dress

The kindergarten teacher of my son asked me if I can sew a dress or skirt for the older kids in the kindergarten. Of course I can. I know that some sisters from a disney movie are the favorite figures for girls in the age from 2-6 years. First I draw a sketch to see how it supposed to look. Than I took turqouise brocade fabric, light blue satin and some other fabric and arranged them as shown in the drawing, to a beautiful dress. For the waist and the neckline I used elastic band to make sure that the dress fits all girls in the kindergarten. From some other fabric I sewed also a skirt. The girls now really happy and sing "Let it go...." all the time.

Sorry for the bad pictures, there were made in the morning before I bring the dress and skirt into the kindergarten.

Advent Wreath 2015

Our Advent Wreath in this year is very simple. I took a star shaped tray and put some turquoise organza fabric on it. Than I arranged the candles, fir branches, turquoise tree decoration and some silver stars I made long time ago.

Last year I sewed some pillows for the grandparents of my kids. I took a fabric with several prints on it. My kids grab some fabric paint and make the fabric colorful.

I took the colored fabric and sewed two pillows of each fabric. What a perfect Christmas gift.

pattern: my own
fabric: IKEA

Hello December - bye November

The November is already gone and here is a review from our November.
Enjoying the last scraps of fall, walking with the lantern, building a ginger bread house, seeing the first snow, drinking hot wine punch, visting a Christmas market, making some decoration and set the fire to the first candle on the Advent wreath.
