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.

Sew It Up – and the winner is…..

//….Dorien!!!! Way to go Dorien! And I’m also really happy with my second spot. I’m happy that I got this far in the competition. I loved every bit of it,  but I’m also happy that it’s over now -Hello social life-.

Thank you for supporting me during this journey! 

Signature Look – Sew It Up Final – do I get your vote?

Thank you so-so much to everyone who voted for me. I hardly can believe I made it into the final! Wow! Thank you for all your support the last few weeks. One more week and I won’t be begging you to vote for me anymore. That will be weird. This week we had to say goodbye to Froukje. She made some really nice things. Follow her on instagram to check out the new things she’s making. 

This weeks challenge is signature style. Make at least 3 items that represent you signature style.

Since it’s the last week I will still ask you to vote for me one last time. But I also want to ask you to share this. I would love it if you could help me out to win this competition. So go on share my beggings on Facebook, Twitter,… You would really help me out a lot!

But first things first, let me tell you a bit more about my signature style.

In this post I’ll share the complete look. There will be a few more post where I’ll go into detail about every piece I made.



Wow that patterns fits you perfectly! Sewing café

// Do you envy those people who fit into every, really every pattern? Well you shouldn’t because nobody fits perfectly into the patterns. To make it fit perfectly you should do some adjustment. Today we’ll be sharing the adjustments that we have to do everytime. Hanne and i have so much fun making these video’s, so if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Summer stashbust // 3 out, 1 in I’m stashbusting

Is a full year of stashbusting a bit to much for you? Luckely The Quirky Peach is challenging you to stashbust a whole summer long! And it’s stashbusting the advanced level! No new fabrics untill september 22. Whoa! That will be very hard, but I decided to participate to give my stashbusting challenge a boost! Although I have 2 exceptions:

  • The fabric that I ordered before I joined the stashbusting challenge. Since It’s comming from the other side of the pond it takes a while. And I only count my fabrics as in when I have them in my hands.
  • I will also be making some dressup stuff. And well if the colours don’t match there’s no fun in cosplay.

And you will you be joining in?
