100% heppie

100% heppie I certainly was with the brooch I ordered here. Lovely packed, it arrived in my mailbox last week.
The perfect addition to my new bag.
Sadly enough, I already lost it....... I think that I didn't attach it well enough to the bag. How stupid of me! (I'll probably order a new one, or one of the lovely necklaces, a bit more safe ;)).

Delivery Bike

I am so happy with my new bike. It has not only space for two kids on the backside, but it also has a big wooden crate on the frontside. And this is perfect to carry all the packages and envelopes in when going to the postoffice. To make the bike a bit more "VANMARIEKE", I made a little bunting from fabric scraps and attached this to the crate.

So Sweet

Of Helmi to send me these cute fabrics. She screenprinted the designs herself on vintage fabrics. And because the owl reminded her of my logo, she offered me to send me a piece (which became a few pieces). Now I only have to think of a nice way to use the fabrics, maybe on a bag or in an embroidery hoop as an artwork on the wall...... Thanks Helmi! A little present is (finally) on it's way to you too, hope you like it.

Almost Ready

I finally finished embroidering this deer. The only thing I have to do now is choose a nice fabric for the backside and make a pillow from it. Very retro, don't you think? I love it. And if you want to make a pillow like this for yourself, you can order it in the shop (the package comes with printed canvas, yarn, needle and instructions).
