Pattern progress

It’s summer and there is so much to do, sewing and knitting have to wait sometimes… At least I spent yesterday afternoon/evening in front of the TV (watching the world championship [women’s football/soccer – in case you didn’t notice]) and made some progress with the second pattern for my jeans. The first one just didn’t want to become the type of cut I envisioned or …

blendend

I made some progress with my blue top. The trim is finished and waiting to be attached to the top. It went pretty fast for more than 300 stitches. I hope the sleeves will do as well – since yesterday it’s officially summer after all. Mit meinem blauen Top geht es endlich weiter! Die Blende ging wirklich schnell von der Hand und wartet jetzt darauf, …

Die Nadel im Heuhaufen…

How do you know, which needle is currently in your machine? Ok, sure, if you just put it in and are sewing quite regularly on a certain piece it’s quite easy to know.

Sweet Dreams – Teil 2

I finished my new pj-top! It’s always a very euphoric moment when I finish something.

The fumbling has been well worth it – even the raglan seams match. the front/von vorn When cutting I …

Sweet Dreams

Look: I made myself a sleeping mask to match my sleeping pj-shorts. Next I’m working on a matching top to go with it. I made the shorts a while (read: 2 years) ago. They are made of light blue cotton chambray shirting fabric and adorned with white velvet ribbon to hide the seam allowances. They even have cute little cuffs. I made up the pattern …

1. Juni

Happy international children’s day! Because we all are the child of someone. 🙂 Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum internationalen Kindertag! Schließlich sind wir ja alle das Kind von irgendwem. 🙂 I’m not sure if you are aware that Me-Made-May became Me-Made-June on Zoe’s blog. And even if I was soooo sure at the end of march that I would be participating again this time, I decided last …
