Since I got my hands on the book Freehand Fashion by Chinelo Bally I’ve been drooling over this. So much drooling to the point where it get’s hard to decide which project I want to try out first!
And that’s where you guy come in. I invite all of you to help me choose my first project from this book. I selected 8 projects, and you guys can vote for you favorite one until friday.
I know, it’s short notice, so just do it now so you won’t forget.
It’s been sooooooo long since there was a sewing cafe. Today Hanne and I are making it up to you by doing an epic interview with Joost.
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:
