ByGraziela + Give Away

Yesterday, I added a new set of four new fabric to the shop.
These fabrics are from ByGraziela and are reprints of designs from the 70's.
The fabrics are extra wide (1,50 - 1,70 metre) and therefor very suitable for bedding and curtains (but also for pillows, bags, skirts, etc.....).

And to celebrate this new brand in the shop, I will give away one metre of one of these fabrics to one of you! All you have to do is to leave a comment here before or on Sunday June 5th and keep your fingers crossed. On Monday (June, 6), I will draw the lucky winner.

Retro Camping

Sometimes you find items on the internet that you have to share. Like this tent. I always liked to have a VW van to go camping with, but with two small kids it isn't very practical, because it is really small. This tent is a more practical alternative. Designed to look like a perfect 1:1 scale replica of their 1965 Camper Van and comes in your choice of red, yellow or blue. Available from August this year, so too late for our holiday, but still cute!

Unfinished projects

I made a start to finish several sewing projects that where laying around the house for quite a while (some already for more than a year). Like these fabric flags for a bunting. Perfect in time to decorate the garden with.

My sister asked me if I was interested in a knitting workshop. Sure, I am always interested in doing something creative. When I was young, I learnt how to knit, but because I am left-handed, I didn't learn much more than the basics. And that's where it all started again, at the basics. Knitting a scarf (for the winter, this time), with the perfect wool to start with, because you do not see any mistakes (which I made already of course). In the meanwhile, I really started to like knitting and I found a little book at the second hand store which will hopefully help me to try out different stitches. My goal is to make one of these, but knitted for myself (found via Vlijtig). Must be possible, right?
