More and more people starts making clothes by themselves. And the numbers are still growing. Just in my surrounding more friends telling me, that they bought a sewing machine because they want also to sew some things.
That makes me quite happy, because I know that hobbies like that makes you come down from your work life.
When someone is showing me the first project, I am asking the person how did they feel, when they hold the first finished project in the hands. The answer is every time the same: “Happy und lucky.”
Yes, that is also the feeling I had, when I finished my blouse.
I chose a pattern from the magazine “Easy Burda” (Spring/Summer 2014).
That blouse has raglan sleeves, which I really like. In the originally pattern is it quite short, as you can see in the picture from the magazine. With a different fabric I made the blouse longer.
(For our German readers here is a link where you can buy this magazine.)
I hope I have inspired you a bit!
Lots of Love ❤
this Post is more for your Inspiration. Sometimes you don`t know how you can give a birthday gift a special look. so maybe that will be an option for you.
I packed some pictures and one of my wood picture holder in paper, fixed with a sticker and put it in a black box with a birthday card.
Finally I tie up the box with a red bow.
Additional I made some gift for my other friends, that is how I packaged the present for those:
See you soon!
Last time I made the “wood picture holder” to decorate my room with some pictures.
In the search for a perfect place for my finished project, I came across to this blank wall in my apartment.
Since a long time I have been searching for some decoration to give this part of my room some color.
Just a poster was not special enough.
Another problem is that I love to receive postcards, but it is really sad that they end up in my desk drawer.
So one day I was standing in front of the wall and finally I got a good idea for my problem.
I would build a card holder for my room, on the same principle as the wood picture holder.
For the back I took a wooden panel, which is 37 cm wide, 92 cm long and 0,5 cm thick.
Further I needed strips of wood, in my case they are 37 cm wide, 3 cm thick and 1,5 cm high. (For each 5 pieces.)
Before I glue my wood strips on the panel, I cut slits in them for holding cards or pictures.
Every 16 cm I fixed the wood strips on the wooden panel.
I am so happy with this solution. An eye-catcher with practical function.
See you next time. Lots of love!
