New Arrivals

In my circle of friends there were some babies born. For two of them I sewed a dinosaur with woven ribbon on their back. The babies can fiddle around with these little ribbons and discover new colors and maybe later also some motives. On Linda's website is a little free tutorial for such a sweet cuddle dinosaur.

This year my son disguise as Emmet, a figure from The LEGO Movie, for a party in his kindergarten. He like the Lego toys and he also likes the movie, so I took a jumpsuit pattern and sew his costume. The ID card is made with frezzer paper and fabric paint.

Chair Socks

It's over four years, since we moved into a new appartment and the first thing I sewed after we moved into our new home was some covers for the chair legs. The chair scratching over the floor and that makes me crazy. So I unpacked my sewing machine, took the box with my fabrics and sewed some felt fabric covers. I remember that I made these covers with my old sewing machine. The machine dosen't like the felt fabric and looses the stich. But I sewed the covers (with some curses, screamings and yellings on my machine) for all four chairs. Since this day until now the chairs doesn't scratch anymore.

A half Century

A workmate  of mine has celebrated her 50th birthday - a half century- . For this reason I sewed a personalised bag. The letter from her first name is attached on the flap and made from demin. The outside of this bag is made of demin too. For the inside I took knit fabric and iron some interfacing onto it.

Organizing for Survivors

For my calender, pencils and other stuff I need a organisation purse. A (long) time ago I buyed a fabric with some "The Walking Dead" comic stripes on it. I consider carefully about the sewing project for this fabric and found the perfect pattern and the perfect fabric for the comic stripes. It hits also the goal, that Katharina from the "greenfietsen" blog arranged a monthly link party. The January link party is all about organisation and I know that I'm a little late, but next time I tried to do better.

Hello February - bye January

The first month of the new year is already gone. Here is my review from January.

Forgot to close the window in the car wash, celebrating a birthday, enjoy the sunrise at a free day, declutering the kid's room, got a little present, sewing a present for a workmate, got some help, made a costume.

How was your first month in 2016?
