The weekend of april1st we where in Disneyland Paris!!!

This picture is taken by Fien, our youngest DD!! You also can see my infinity scraf that I made out of 4 sleeves of two sweaters! I also made two skirts for the girls of the shirt… Pictures will follow soon!

I made these things for the scavenger hunt for april. I had to use some words and link it to the things I made.

These are the two out of 3 cupcake swaps… the 3th I forgot to take a picture of….
These swaps I received! The scavenger hunt came from Kimminata It’s also her picture I used, she had all things great pictured!!!
This cupcakeswap came from SaschaThis swap I received from Esther

Bowina’s swap I also received and the softie swap from Roosje… But had no time to make pictures yet… next time!!!

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!!!

Lots of fun


Look what we have here… Fien has got her glasses now! She is soooo proud to have them! When we went to the shop last week to seek for a nice pair of glasses, she had deffenetly her own taste… Lucky for mommy that I liked them too and daddy liked them also!
As we where finished, we went out of the store and she stoped:”Where are my glasses now???”I had to tell her that we have to wait aboout 1 week and then we can pick them up… She talked about her glasses all week and today was her moment to get them!!! She put the pink ones on and kept them on!!! Just see taht little face….

I made different bento this week…The first is our Yummie pasta salade with Loads of garlic in it…The second and third have pita’s filled with a corn, grilled pepper, cucumber, creamcheese, italian herbs, garlic and salade… Yummie filling.

Sewing today and the days before…


This is Emma’s birthdaydress. She was trying it on today and loved it!
I love the fabric choise! It’s stenzo fabric and the pattern is from Portabellopixie

This little navydress is recycle stuff! I used an old poloshirt of myself, it was almost new, didn’t fit well to me… So I took an old dress off my DD and traced it for the pattern… Some ribbon and a aplliqué…voilá!

This is my first fused plastic bag -bag…
I found this tutorial and had to try! I still had the lovely bird plastic bag and found it great to use! It’s soooo cool t redo and repurpose things!

These dresses are the invitations for Emma’s birthdayparty!
