Kanzashi tutorial

I found this great tutorial on the brazilian blog Superziper with pictures that are very much self-explanatory - and for which I am very greatful - obrigado!

Here is my first Kanzashi flower, I replaced the button with a fabric yo-yo so that it would better cover the junction of the petals

Voyage nocturne

Ma mère fait partie d'un cercle de femmes qui font du patchwork. Elles ont eu l'idée de se donner le challenge de créer un patchwork avec seule contrainte la taille (qui devait être la même pour tous) et l'utilisation d'un même tissu qui a été distribué à toutes les participantes - je trouve l'idée très sympa, c'est comme un "patchwork challenge". A la fin du "concours" elles ont organisé une petite exposition mais voilà... le patchwork de ma maman a été volé! Snif... le seul souvenir que nous en avons est cette photo - le tissu en question est le vert avec l'imprimé de l'oiseau

Fabric Toy Box

Living with a little baby at home - I'm drowning under baby toys...and they spread very quickly all over the place... I needed to find a solution so here is my little son's new Toy box :-)

With a tutorial for "non-pro" sewers like me

First I cut 6 squares in the exterior fabric (braun), the lining (green) and the batting (white), I tried to use a strong one to help the box keep it's shape.

Then I put the lining and the exterior fabric right sides together and on top the batting as so for 5 of the squares :

For the lid I insert a ribbon between the lining and the exterior fabric as so:

Then I sew all the squares living an opening to turn them inside out, and then close it with some hand stiches.
And finally I assemble all the squares to form a cube by threading a needle with wool and stiching all the squares together as so:

And I also sewed a button

Panduro Lykkepose Challenge II

In min lykkepose var der også nogle fine stjerner. Jeg malede dem og brugte dem som "til-og-fra-gavekort"

Ny suttekæde

I did another pacifier holder as I came to realise that the first one I made was too long, there is a risk that it goes around his neck so I now did a shorter one - 18 cm long
And I added a little ribbon on the side for fun but he actually likes to play with it sometimes :-)
