New creations….


I recycled my rugby shirt. I did not wear it because it went crowling up. So…. It turned into a sweater for Fien! it’s sooo awesome when she wears it.

I also recycled my old DEPT skirt. It was hard to say goodby to this great wearable skirt, but when wholes are falling in it…So it turned into a bag. I used the reversible bag tutorial by very purple person. I put two inches on the fold, so it went wider
.. Loved it so much that I also made my little sister one for her B’day!

For my vossenjacht swap I made a real dutchy style teacosy… It turned out great I think! i also made other stuff, but that I will show later, but my teacosy I wanted to share with you all.

Knofje blogged about her little bear friends… I could not resist making two cuties!!! There’s a pattern and a great tutorial!!!

I made this teapotholder with cinnamon for my colleague. It was her b’day and I wanted to make someting for her…
It’s an easy DIY project!
I also made a little tea wallet maching with it…a great tutorial for the wallet is found on Christy’s blog.

teapotholder tutorial

take two pieces of fabric sized as big ( a little larger so it will stand great in the middle)as your teapot.
2 pieces of fiberfill( to put between the fabric) a little smaller as your fabric.
Stich 3 sides of your fabric and leave one side open. Slide in the two pieces of fiberfill (batting) and take out your cinnamon pouder. Put about one or two teaspoons cinnamonpowder between the fiberfill and stich the open side of your fabric.
then stich some lines… I made a little hedgie on this. Then you first have to stich the outlines of the hedgie when you closed all sides of the fabric.
I later painted with fabric paint the brown color on it!
FINISHED is this easy but great gift!!!! I also made this potholder for my swapparner nancy!
Great gift for christmas, birthdays or just ….

It’s show time again!


After a 3 weeks beiing back from France I have been working and creating! And I had to update all of you!
My parents came for a weekend and we went walking in “Barger veen” A beautiful nature reservate near by.
We had a great walk and made beautiful pictures.Ilove the spider!

Grandma and Fien walking hand in hand…

Grandpa and Emma…hand in hand!

I told you all last time my sister “D” is getting married! She asked the girls to be bridalmaids. A reaction from Fien: “I can’t be aunty… my shoes are to smal and I can not walk on them, my feet are hurting in them…” She was SO serious and dissappointed! My sister told her she would get new shoes and a new dress, not the same as last year when my other sister got married! It was such sweet reaction and she was So serious on it….

I also created a lot again… First a little bag from a baby jeans! the elastic in it was solved so no use for it or… YES! It turned out te be a little bag!
Had seen cute bags of old jeans on a market in france and thought it was cheaper to make myself one ….

A friend of us is pregnant and will get a baby girl! Nice to know so you can make PINK baby presnets!!!! Here’s my Bitty Boots pair!!! You can download the pattern for free on Heather Baily’s blog!

i also made a skirt from an old skirt of myself…
aslo finished the library bags for Daan and Emma. Today they used it fr the first time…
Easy with the library card hooked on the bag so they can not lose them! and always have the card with them when they go to the library bus at school…

Last weekend Fien was at the Neighbours. There she had some great home baked bread. She loved it so much that I asked for the recepy. It was easy with a great result. This morning I made the bred and when Fien came from school she loved the warm home made bread!!!! Soon I will translate the recepi and share it…But first the picture of the bread…Shame you can”t smell it and taste it!!!!

well it’s a long post but now you are udated!!! Hope to share again soon, when the girls wanna show their new made clothing…
