    Spring Jacket

    For Christmas I made my youngest godchild a pair of trendy green linen pants. After making this and a cute little bowtie to go with it, I still had a fair amount of fabric left, which I could use to complete the outfit. So at the beginning of this year I leafed through the available magazines in my sewing class,…

    Pink birthday

    For the birthday of one of my nieces, I once again resorted to an old favourite pattern, the Catalina dress from The Simple Life Pattern Company. I’ve already made so many versions of this dress, but I never tire of it. Fairly simple to make, with always a stunning and practical result. For these birthday dresses I dived into my…

    Forest animals dungerees

    Christmas has been over for a while and the Christmas presents have all been unwrapped, but I didn’t show them all here yet. I can already hear you thinking: “Erm, Charlotte, there must have already been 7 posts about presents with I don’t know how many creations! When will this end?!” Well, now, actually. This is the last of the…

    My Christmas sweater

    After everything I made for Christmas to give away, finally something I made for myself! The Julgran sweater* by Andi Satterlund has been on my wishlist to make since its publication in 2017. Five years later and I finally got around to it! * Unfortunately Andi decided to close her shop at the end of 2022, so this pattern can…

    Jim pants

    Christmas has been over for a while and the Christmas presents have all been unwrapped, but I didn’t show them all here yet. Well, not the homemade presents. After all the knitting mill creations, another sewing project today! For my youngest godchild I had already made the Jim pants from La Maison Victor (Sep/Oct 2016) a while back. I liked…

    Harry Potter Headbands

    They’re all the rage these days, headbands. I saw them appearing everywhere and I had thought several times that this would be a fun craft project. In the meantime I had made the Gryffindor beanies and also wanted to do something with the other leftovers from the Harry Potter-scarves, but hats suddenly didn’t really appeal to me that much anymore.…

    Fox beanies

    In between all the Harry Potter projects I made on my Addi, I wanted to revisit the little fox beanie pattern I had made when I first got my machine for practice and as a tension experiment. This time I wanted to make the beanie in real foxy colours. For one I used orange with beige, for another orange and…

    Gryffindor beanies

    After finishing the Harry Potter scarves on my Addi, I still had some of the used yarn left over and an itch in my fingers to continue working on the machine. And what goes better with scarves than hats? So I started experimenting with configurations of yarn stripes, first with the Gryffindor leftovers. Since I didn’t have enough left over…

    Harry Potter scarves on the Addi Express

    When I told you about my reason for buying a knitting mill, then this was my justification: Harry Potter scarves. For years I have been collecting wool with the intention of making Harry Potter scarves. It was mainly a search for the perfect colours according to my eyes. It actually started ridiculously many years ago when I first saw the…

    From Elsa to Crystal

    Christmas has been over for a while and the Christmas presents have all been unwrapped, so time to show them here! Like every year, I make a large part of my Christmas presents myself. My most productive months of the year, when I actually finish crafts, are usually November and December. This year I kept track: in 2022 I made…
