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?
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!
It’s time for me to awake from my summer nap! The is one this I love to do in summer,-besides sleeping- is swimming! Preferably out doors, and -of course- in a swimsuit that is me-made. Take Abigail swimsuit pattern by Ohhh Lulu and throw in a lovely polka dot fabric, and there you have it. A match made in heaven.
As you know I participated in the sew it up sewing competition last fal. And I ended up being second, pretty good huh. During and after the competition I got a ton of questions about. So that calls for a Sewing Café about sew it up!

Every once in a while I sew something that isn’t clothing. And one of those occasions was the making of this play-kitchen-chiar for one of the young ladies in my boyfriends family.
So it’s been a while since I shared my thoughts on a book. Luckily I’ll be sharing them today about the book Pattern Cutting for menswear. I can tell you that I love this book! If you watch the review you’ll find out why.
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:
A while ago I asked if somebody could help my find the perfect peacock fabric. And eventuallly I found it! Oh happy days! I found it at the webshop Studio Elf and turned it into another Belladone dress. And if you want to find out some more great news, you can make your own dress during a workshop so I can help you make it.
Btw, I’m so sorry it took so long before I posted something, but making this blog bilangual (and this time for real) is taking a ton of time!
If you follow A Bouquet of Buttons by e-mail subscription you’ve recieved a ton of mails today. That wasn’t my intention. I’m working on making A Bouquet of Buttons into a real bilangual site with a nifty buttons that allows you to choose you prefered language.By doing so I sended out a ton of mails I didn’t intend to do. So I’m reallys orry but I figured out how to stop them. So you should recieve any old blogpost in you inbox anymore. If it would be the case, please let me know so I cant try and fix it.
Sorry for the trouble, but once it’s over, A Bouquet of Buttons will be much more pleasant te read.
With kind regards, Lieke
I want to wish you a very happy new year! I hope 2015 will be a great year for you. If 2014 was a good year, great! I hope you can keep on following that path! If 2014 was a year filled with sorrows and pain, then I hope you can find the strenght to make something beautifull out of this year!

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 bouquetofbuttons.be/en 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!
