    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…

    Left-over skirts

    When I had finished my June dress, I still had a fair amount of the purple fabric left. I didn’t have to think long about what I wanted to make with that: skirts! I hoped I would have enough to make a little skirt for each of my four nieces and I did! For the youngest I did have to…

    Cropped cardigan for June dress

    My outfit for my niece’s wedding was not yet complete simply by finishing the dress. No, I needed a cardigan to go with it. I wanted the cardigan to be short, so it kept showing of my waist and the pleats in the skirt. I also wanted a V-shaped neckline to mirror the back of the skirt. Additionally, I also…

With that in mind, I started working on my dress in sewing class somewhere in december. The dress I was going to make was the June dress from La Maison Victor.     © La Maison Victor The…

    Weasley sweater for Mini

    Last Saturday I went on maternity visit at Evelien’s. At the beginning of February, she gave birth to her second baby, a boy named Lucas – code name Mini. I already knew it was going to be a boy, which gave me pause to figure out what to make. For her little girl, over a year ago, I made a…

    Speedy Bulle

    Time ran away with me again and suddenly there were only 2 weeks left before A’s birthday party and I still needed to start on her present. Doh! Like I said previously, the plan was to make her another Bulle, since she loves wearing her pink one. It’s not such a difficult pattern, but to knit it in only a…

    What I made in 2017

    For 2017 I count twenty-one handmade projects! Surprising for me is that the majority are sewing projects, while I’m fairly new to the craft and thus less inclined to try something new. The majority of these projects didn’t get an English blog post, but you can still see the pictures or use Google Translate if you’re curious πŸ˜‰ 04/02 –…

    My secret santa gift

    They say that you can look back at the previous year until the end of January. If that’s the case, I’m totally going to ignore that rule, since I’m a little behind with my overviews of 2017. I still have at least 4 posts under way, but that’s not the reason for this post. In this post, I want to…
