Life update

Hi I’m still alive! It’s been a while since my last post. Normally, I mainly write about my creations and sewing techniques, but I thought it might also be nice to give a little more insight in my life at this moment. So many things are happening and I do all kinds of fun things! Sewing Well… Since my boyfriend and I went on vacation in July, I barely had time to sew. I did a lot of fun things, so often my time was up before I realized. Many makes from before my vacation are waiting to be blogged, but haven’t yet. For example, I finally sewed the Seamly…

Lace weddingparty dress

Lace weddingparty dress

For a special occasion every now and then, I like to dress up. So when I was invited to the wedding of my dear German friends, my brain already started rattling. Of course, I could pick one of the beautiful dresses from my assortment, like this or this one… But soon I remembered the fabric I bought at Stoffenspektakel Den Bosch during the Knipster finals in 2017. I scored a gorgeous glitter lace and matching under layer. I think the lace is from Driessen Stoffen, and the terlenka from Budgetstoffen. If I would be attending a wedding again, I thought, I would make a dress out of it. The pattern…

#MEMADEMAY 2019 – DAY 17-31

#MEMADEMAY 2019 – DAY 17-31

That’s it! My first #MeMadeMay has passed! Looking back, it was a quite long month. Thinking about it: a month is one twelfth of a year, so it’s not surprising that it felt long. I think my month was successful overall, although there were some exceptions. Sometimes I just didn’t have the right handmade items for the occasion. For example when I went away on a 3 day course for work. There I wanted to dress appropriately, but also be prepared for all possible temperatures and situations. That was not always possible using handmades. Some other days I just really wanted to wear something RTW (ready to wear). This already…

#MeMadeMay 2019 – Day 1-16

#MeMadeMay 2019 – Day 1-16

It’s #MeMadeMay! This has been a thing for 10 years already. The idea is that you wear handmade items as often as possible for one month. This will refresh your view of your handmade items, and come up with new ways to combine them. You can even make it a personal goal to help you achieve this within the month of May. It’s the first time I’m participating in MeMadeMay. In previous Mays I tried to join in for some of the days, but this year I figured that I should have enough handmades to dress myself in for a whole month! So, my goal for this month is to…

Tutorial – A serged blind hem in just 5 steps

Tutorial – A serged blind hem in just 5 steps

Last week I showed you how to easily sew flat felled seams on your serger! A fun technique that gives a very cool, sporty effect. Back then I promised you to also show how to do an easy blind hem using just your serger. In just one move you cut off the raw edge, overlock and stitch the hem! This technique is comparable to a blind hem on your sewing machine, but now the edge is finished at the same time. That saves time! Such blind hem you sew in just 5 steps: 1. Double fold the edge of your fabric, like in the picture. You’ll sew on the wrong…

Tutorial – How to sew Flat Felled Seams

Tutorial – How to sew Flat Felled Seams

I always assumed that you would need a coverstitch machine to sew those sporty visible seams. But after reading Sweeter Than Cupcakes’ blog it became clear to me that that isn’t the case. With a normal overlock machine or serger you can just do this! It’s called ”flat felled seam” or ”flatlock”. I immediately tested this new to me technique on the horseriding leggings I sewed (here you can find a link to the full blog about that). It was so much easier than I thought! Now I’m soo enthusiastic about this, that I HAVE to show you how to do this, and what to pay attention to. So hereby! 🙂 First, I’ll give you some…
