• The summer mini quilt swap

on-my-desk

I thought I needed a challenge to try something new, so I submitted to the  In the Good Ol’ Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. My partner’s favourite colour is blue so that was something to start from with my design. I want to try a scrappy quilt with a panel where I can add a summer […]

• Long time no see

tshirt-application

It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. Revalidation is taking a lot more time then I thought. I have to cycle on the hometrainer multiple times per day, I have to walk a lot and besides that I have my stretching exercises. But…. every week it’s going a little better, so that’s a […]

• A little girl is born

A friend of mine got a daughter recently. Inspired by the birth announcement I made this paper/fabric creation. The size is A5 and I first clued all the pieces to the card and then sewed the tree branches. I was inspired by all the comments on my feedback request, one of the things I did […]

• Pimp a little jeans skirt

pimp-a-jeans-skirt

I used an old jeans skirt for this, but you can also use an old pair of jeans trousers. Cut a piece from the skirt (or trousers) so that you can still use the front pockets. In my case I used two pieces of cotton fabric, but off course you can also use just one and add a […]

• I could use some feedback

owen-and-sophia

Sometimes I think that everyone is crafting around the world, because of that endless amount of inspiring blogs. But in my daily reality, that’s not the case…. No one in my neighborhood I know is crafting in any way, so when I am in desperate need of any feedback, I have no one to show my project and discuss… […]

• A RevoluzZa monster

monster-front

I love the work of RevoluzZa and I appreciate the fact she makes some of her patterns available for everyone to use. For this version I used the fabric I cut from an old blouse and pieces of left over felt for the eyes and other embellishments. I’m sure RevoluzZa will love the recycle idea, she […]

• Fancy pants

wrapping

I did this wrapping last week, I loved it so much I had to take a picture of it. Yesterday I made these fancy pants for the daughter of a friend. I like to create such girlie stuff, and I was looking for someone I could create it for. As the model wasn’t around during […]

• Easter bunny

easter-bunny1

Hi there, it’s been a long time since I’ve been here. I’m struggling with my energy level and a lack of confidence to start new things. The crocheted hearts garland is still not finished, 3 hearts are attached now. I find it such an unlike-full job to sew all those hearts to the string by […]

• Pin Cushion of the Month Club

pincushion-of-the-month

Half a year ago I submitted to the Pin Cushion of the Month Club. Each month for seven months you receive a package with fabric, haberdasheries, a handmade pin and off course a pattern, to create a pincushion. Till a few days ago, I didn’t start on any of those…. but here you can see […]

• Another felt workshop

verjaardag-barabara

My best friend said, what you had for your birthday, I want that too! So yesterday 9 girls together became crafty and creative. So fun to see how everyone shows their her own character in their creations. And this is one of the things I made for her birthday, I used the pattern of Jona […]
