This summer I created a little handbag for quick outings or fancy parties perhaps… I love sewing into wool, so that’s what I used as the fabric of the bag, just so I could do some wool embroidery on top of it as well as sewing it together. It’s been a long time since I […]

I’m glad I didn’t decide to blog every day this month, because this week I’ve been under a rock of work, so much so my own creativity has suffered and this blog was left alone for most of the time. All I managed, except making layouts for a magazine I work for, was sending out […]
I love having friends (and sometimes one or two small friends) over in my studio. It is super fun to share from my stash, sometimes papers and sometimes other materials. This was a sewing day. And since I have a lovely collection of pretty fabrics, that’s what we took out (though I might have kept […]
The fab fabrics I got in the Fabulous Fabric Swap became a Quilted Laptop Bag! A quilt-as-you-go-bag! And QAYG is indeed an abbreviation to remember. A bit like crazy quilting, but with a more instant quilted look. I was inspired by Flutter Kat’s tutorial on How to make a Quilt As You Go anything. Seeing […]
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. Marianne Williamson I love scraps! Not only the paper scraps I use all the time, but fabric scraps too. I think I collect them. And pet them, but don’t tell anyone. I love how scraps let’s you mix […]
Red is such a beautiful, strong colour. I love red, but sometimes, in my passion for pink and turquoise, I forget about red. But today red has its moment of glory! Because we’ve got this Nature Trail Curtain Fabric with a warm red background to the forest animals, and a basic red fabric to match […]
Even better than collecting fabric in transparent boxes is using that fabric to create everyday objects. In that way you get to see a lot more of the fabric’s pattern, right? That’s why I wanted a sturdy, usable bag from the Campervans fabric, a curtain fabric that is just perfect for bag making. This one […]
A very girly and super cute thing, just for me. Yes, I got myself a polka dot bag. Too small for travel adventures but perfect for embroidery floss and tiny projects. Just perfect because it makes me happy! PS: Not bought today, a while back. But still makes me smile when I see it.
I’ve made myself a new bag, and taken it out for a walk. Its a very sturdy and nice bag with hand sewn edges, lace and imagery. I like the big lid and the chocholate coloured interiour. There’s also a pen holder – because I always look for a pen at the bottom of the […]
The title of this post could be a metaphor for my creative life; In my wonderful and magic bag of mixed media I have many tricks and supplies that I use when I create and alter the world around me. But that was not my intention today. I just need to show you my new […]
I made a red bag with a white bunny print lining. I love how it looks, but my journal doesn’t fit inside. It will end up in my etsy shop for sure.
There are several books in the Pretty little-series from Lark Books and I’ve been browsing through them lately. They are perfect gifts for yourself or a creative friend that wants to sew but are not that advanced (yet). My favorite is the one on bags, so I’ll write a review on that book today. Enjoy! […]
