Stashvember 2015

A while ago I got sad while looking at my fabric cupboard. I own so many fabrics! Too many!! And all of these fabrics represent dreams that haven’t come to life jet. So this month I will be giving priority to these lost dream, and turn them into reality.

In november I’ll be shopping from my stash. And I’m joining forces with Hanne and turned this into a bigger thing: Stashvember. Since Hanne and I felt the same frustration we’re sure many people have the same feeling. Let’s join forces and shop from our stash!

I tried stashbusting before. And that helped a lot but one year was too long for me. So this time it will be one full month.

Are you joining in?

A School bag or 2

It doesn’t happen often but once in a while I like to share stuff I make for kids. Like these school bags I made for last school year. Whoops, better later then never, right?

The Galaxy School Bag was named the ‘Galaxy park Bag’ (there is a childeren show called Galaxy park). And the green one the ‘Planes Bag’, my nephew loves that movie!

Welcome into my sewing studio

Making my room into a real sewing studio seem to be a never endig story. I wanted to share it with you a few times, and I even took pictures. But afterward I changed a few things and then my mind turned into not blogworthy materiaal. So  I just stored it on my external hard drive without doing somthing with it. And then I realised, my studio will never be finished. I’ll alway keep changing things  )expect of they are screwed into the wall- so  I descided I could live sharing pictures of my sewing studio without it being the exact same room that’s below me while I’m writing this blogpost.

So ladies and gents, without any further ado I’de like to present you my sewing studio:

And I also have a gift for all of you, from now on the blog will actually be multilangual. Right now you’re on the English part of the site, if you click on the flag on the right you’ll go to the Dutch site. If you’re in a post in the wrong langue and you click the flag then, if there’s a translation you will automaticly go to the post you were reading.

I had some troubles setting this up, so my goal to have a completely bilangual site by now failled, but I will do everything to make it work to it’s full potential as soon as possible.

And of course you can start follow my blog in English on Bloglovin and any aother reader. Just search for and it should pop right up. Btw I translate everything it isn’t a google translate thing.

Enjoy 2015 and I hope our paths will cross a ton of times!
