The next thing I’ve done is a stroller bag for use in spring/summer/early fall. This one was made for Jonatan, my stepsister’s youngest one. It was a long time since the last stroller bag I made, and I had forgotten about all the work… This is really some hours of work! But also very satisfying when it’s done and you’re happy with the result 😉
This winter had not been the most productive, but I actually have managed to get something done 🙂 And I think my inspiration is on it’s way back, finally! There’s been so long without blogging now, that I actually have to go back to August to find the first thing I have not presented here. This is a Rumpie (I think it’s called) for Matilde. It’s a shorts and a top that is in one piece. I just made my own pattern out of an old singlet and a pair of shorts.
I have to say, this fall and winter I haven’t found any motivation for sewing… I can’t really explain why, it’s just been that way. I have been knitting, though! I finished this sweater from Ravelry a few weeks ago, my first ever cable knitting project! The pattern is «burrard» by Glenna C.
The headless picture of me is taken by Aurora, so I guess it’s showing her perspective of things 😉
A little Flower Power inspired dresses created on order from my sister in law to her friends two daughters. The dresses are similar, in sizes 2 and 4 years. The largest one on my soon to be 5 year old here on the pictures. A little bit too short for her, but you get the impression of how it looks on 😉 Always nice with some action-pics!
Sometimes you need to make a mistake to be inspired… These fabric combinations are a result of a misplaced order. I thought I ordered stripes, and ended up with two types of dots when I got it. My first impulse was to return it, but then I changed my mind and ordered stripes in addition to the dots 😉 So one night after the kids went to bed I made this set for my youngest one (5 years) A lot of stripes and dots, and she loved it! So did my oldest, so I guess I have to do another one for her…
My stepsister got a baby boy some weeks (actually more like months now…) ago, and I wanted to make him something special. The Jeans are made out of a pair of Magnus` old ones that didn`t fit him anymore. Perfect for baby jeans since they`re worn and soft! The onesie is my first try ever to make one, so I was not so sure that would work out the first time, but it did! I`ve got a picture of him in it, so it even fits 😉 I thought it would be funny to add some details to the jeans from the Onesie-fabric, so it appears to be more of a set. I really like those ooga booga figures! (Also have the fabric in pink…) Here`s pictures of the front and the back of the set. I thought I had picture of the onesie alone to show the nice buttons, but I guess I forgot…
These hair bands were made just to have something whenever I needed a small gift, and now they are all gone 😉 My own girls tried to take off with every one of them, but ended up with one each. The rest is spread out. I can make more on request if anyone is interested. Price is $10 or 75 kr. Lots of work, they´re having 3 layers to keep them nice and steady, and everyone has two different fabrics so you can use them on both sides.
