Grey to Grey: New Blouse for the spring time

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.)

Grey to Grey: New Blouse for the spring time

For Inspiration: Birthday Gift Package

Hi Everybody,

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.

Wall Board – A wood construction for my apartment

Hey Everybody,

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.
All finished!

I am so happy with this solution. An eye-catcher with practical function.
