    Baby Yoda

    It is not uncommon for me to hand out homemade gifts. Sometimes this is for a reason (birthdays and births, etc.) and sometimes I just wanted to make something, but have no place or use for it myself. For example, I have already distributed crochet critters to colleagues at work, who are fans of something or other. One colleague had…

    Snow White’s dress

    My godchild really wanted a dress like Snow White and I actually had a pretty quick idea what kind of dress I wanted to make. Of course it had to be done in the colors blue and yellow, with an accent red at the waist. I also definitely wanted puff sleeves and an A-line, flowy skirt. After some searching, I…

    Snow White Catalina

    For her birthday my goddaughter would have liked a dress like Snow White and I of course was happy to make something along those lines. On Instagram I follow a couple of costume makers and cosplayers, because I’m in real awe about the things they often make. It makes me also want to try my hand at a historical sewing…

    Christmas makes 2018

    In terms of self-made Christmas gifts, this year was fairly quiet. I had drawn my father for the gifts and he’s more for comic books and practical gifts than crocheted dolls or knitted dresses πŸ˜‰ So the handmade items were limited to the gifts for my goddaughter. Firstly I sewed her a dress with the left over fabric from my…

    Aster sweater

    When I bought the purple fabric for the cache-coeur pullover, I also bought this flowery fabric with the intention of making a second cache-coeur pullover with it. However, since I wasn’t that pleased with the end result of that sweater, I decided to use the fabric for something else, namely a simple sweater pattern by La Maison Victor, the Aster.…

    Birthday dresses

    It has become a sort of a tradition that I give my nieces something I made myself for their birthdays and this time was no different. This time I chose a pattern that has been in my favourites for a while now, but I never made it, since it only comes in one size. I’m talking about the violet dress…

    Fox for baby Thomas

    In October a friend/colleague became mom of a little boy, Thomas. Of course I also wanted to make something myself to give when I went to visit, and when I saw the birth announcement, I immediately knew that that something would be a fox. First I had wanted to imitate the fox from the announcement, but then I saw this…

    Pullover with cache-coeur

    This school year I signed up for sewing lessons for the third year in a row. This time for the “Leisure” module, which means that the focus is more on tricot fabrics. The first project of the school year was a top with a cache-coeur neckline. I chose a slightly heavier tricot in a beautiful plum purple, so it would…

    Athena jumper

    After I had finished another Bulle, I took a break from knitting or crocheting. Not only was the summer very busy, but also extremely hot, so I did not really feel like doing anything with yarn. However, then around the end of July, my hands started itching again. That’s how I rediscovered a batch of cotton yarn I had bought…

    Birthday presents

    For birthday gifts I often opt to make something myself. And for my godchild I like to do that little bit extra. I started with a simple sewn skirt, that I made in the last sewing class of the school year.    Next I made a requested dress: a Bulle in duck egg blue and purple.    But my actual…
