In an earlier posts I mentioned that my son loves colorful cloths and he loves his two very happy trousers. He apparently is not the only one, because one of his friends placed an order for such a pair of trousers. The fifth birthday of my sons friend is this week and I therefore created another pair of Small Fry Jeans. The friend is similarly build as my son. I hope that both the friend and his mother will like it.
have made more gifts this year which I did not blog about yet. Some of
the pictures are from before I made my resolution to make better
From this girly skirted onesie I actually made two,
for two different girls. I used an Ottobre pattern for the onesie and I
based the skirt part on an exiting skirted onesie I received when our
youngest was born.
One of my friends liked the (regular)
onesies I sewed my youghest and when she gave birth to her second child,
I gave her this one.
This dino I made for a small boy. It was a very easy and quick gift, you find the tutorial here.
sewing I crocheted a moos/deer. You can see the other animals I made
earlier this year here. This moos/deer is not from the Edward's Managerie book, but
from a pdf pattern set that I received because I bought the book
directly through Toft.
In my previous post I already said
that I used my recently acquired Silhouette for multiple types of
projects. When a loved daycare lady stopped working at our location I
made her a mug. With my Silhouette I cut two pictures of our youngest
girls (the ones she took care of) and peeled the "negative part". Then I
glued them on a mug and colored the cut-out pieces with a porcelain
pen. After half an hour in the oven the mug is dishwasher proof.
last set of pictures shows another recently made gift. I came across a
technique that I had never seen. With zippers a frame is created and the
spaces between the zipper parts are filled with needle felting. I
simply had to try it (I have a big pile of jeans zippers waiting to be
re-purposed). It took me a relatively long time to fixate the zippers, I
hand stitched all the teeth individually, but this can easily be done
in front of the television.
Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google
translate might have to assist me if you choose something different
than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
