Drawstring Bags

My kid’s future daycare needs two laundry bags in order to store additional clothing. I jumped at the oppurtunity to use some of my stashed cottons (both Stoff&Stil) and made two drawstring bags. I used the proposed measurements from this tutorial and sewed up one child sized and one adult sized bag. The child’s version … More Drawstring Bags

I made a book

In a family of book nerds ( I will never move again!) the baby needed a book as well. So while she happily rolled around on her blanked, I rummaged through my scraps and whipped up a baby appropriate book: she can suck at it, try to eat it, throw it around  without any visible … More I made a book

Christmas gifts

Although I have started on a T-Shirt which I intend to finish and blog about soon, there wasn’t much time to sew in the last couple of weeks. However, I managed to make some pouches for friends of mine for Christmas in several 20-minute-installments. I was able to cut out all the fabrics in one … More Christmas gifts

Triangular

I said I was fed up with quilt making- and I really am, but I couldn’t leave my own baby without a quilt of its own, so off I went to work on another one. I thought hard which fabrics to use, rummaged through my stash but couldn’t find something in large enough quantities to … More Triangular

Lou and Jim

Three pairs of pants in a couple of hours- not too bad! I tried two different patterns and used leftover fabrics, as well as leftover and new ribbing. The striped pants and the cream pants are La Maison Victor’s Lou Pants (September/October 2017), both in a size 56. But instead of just hemming the legs … More Lou and Jim

Nand Sweater

My La Maison Victor spree continues- I made the Nand Sweater (Issue May/June 2017) for my husband. Instead of the scuba fabric the jumper was designed for I chose a thin summer sweat from Stoff&Stil and it worked beautifully. He was between sizes, but I opted for size S because of his chest measurement being … More Nand Sweater

Picha Skirt

Another quick and satisfying project: The Picha midi skirt from La Maison Victor (March-April 2017) for my 8-year old. As always, I made size 122/128 but did not add any seam allowance. I ordered the given fabric amount (1.05 metres, so I went for 1 m) from Stoff &Stil, prewashed it, bought a matching zipper, … More Picha Skirt

Liz Dress

I made this dress for a 7-year-old to wear at a wedding. It’s the Liz Dress from La Maison Victor Mai/June 2016. The back issue wasn’t available in German anymore, so I ordered the French version of the magazine, which worked out alright (lots of pictures to help). Other than with the Mitch Jumper, I … More Liz Dress
