New items in my shop.

2014-03-31

I have been working for three days on my new necklaces and decals. Things kept being added to my to do-list. Labels, photos, more labels and then more photos. Then to edit all the photos and put everything in the right bag with the right notes. I made tiny fabric bags for the necklaces and more labels. And gosh three days went by and finally everything is done. Sort of.

I’ve added lots of decals and necklaces to my Etsy this evening. I’m so excited about these things!

My necklaces are made with small light ball chains and wood beads which I’ve painted in different lovely shades. A lot of pastels and gold.

My decals are hand cut, my hand has been tired. They make every room fun, and will make furniture happy. There’s loads of different triangles, fun animals and a nifty Narwhal.

You can find everything in my shop. I hope you’ll like them all! <3


Aztec Animals decals.

2014-02-04

I got a bit inspired last week and made some new decals. It started of just as a black cat head, and then turned into a cat wearing an Aztec printed sweater. I ordered the decals with Spoonflower last night, together with some fabrics I also made.

It later evolved into a bear and a fox, but I’ll show them in a later post. I’m thinking they’d also be fun on furniture.


Pin cushions.

2013-11-29

I ordered new fabric for wrist pin cushions a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I started on four. I only have four wrist bands left, and I need to order some more. The store I got them at has such expensive shipping so I’m hesitating, I hate paying almost as much in shipping as the item itself. I haven’t found any other shop yet though.

Two cats with feathers and a hat, a scared braced girl and a very sad apple.

Our neighbours are rebuilding their house┬á and it seems they just started. There’s a machine humming in a very annoying sound, when it goes quiet it’s like my brain goes ‘aaahhh’. I’m not looking forward to this..


Kids sweaters.

2013-11-10

I’ve been sewing some kids sweaters this week. I used one of the sweater patterns from my Ottobre pattern books, but I changed the pattern a bit. I’m sewing on the neckline and cuffs in another way, and I added a bottom cuff.

It’s quite fun to think about that I learned how to adjust patterns and such from sewing doll clothes. It’s a really good scale to learn on.

Any ways, since I got my new fabrics on Friday I’ve been itching to try it. While I waited for them to dry after a wash I made a really cosy apple sweater, in size 104. It has a fluffy inside, so it’s a perfect autumn/winter sweater.

The second sweater is a red striped raglan with a circus scene which is just lovely. The combinations of colours are so darn neat. Can’t wait to do more versions of it, next up is one with black/white sleeves. This is in size 92.
