Baby Burrito (free pattern)

Baby Burrito (free pattern)

Hi all! It’s weird times with the Corona virus around… For many of you your life and daily routine will be different than normal. I really hope none of your loved ones will be heavily affected! Let’s take care of eachother (even if that means distancing from people or activities you like) AND make the best of it! One safe way to do that is by sewing our stress away!  That’s why today here’s another blog from me in the category of maternity gifts! There’s no end to it. And there I don’t mean the flow of babies of course. I actually just like to sew a lot of gifts,…

Project maternity present (free pattern)

Project maternity present (free pattern)

It is painful to admit, but by now I have reached a phase in life in which more and more of my friends are having babies. Of course that’s great, so I like to celebrate with them! And I also like to celebrate that from behind my sewing machine. Because what could be nicer than gifting something handmade?! So when I heard that several people around me were expecting babies all at the same time, I decided it was time for action. I thought it would be more efficient to do some batch sewing. Sewing the same item for several children at once, is often faster than when you go…

Create your own super simple (Christmas) skirt made to measure!

Create your own super simple (Christmas) skirt made to measure!

Merry Christmas everyone! Oh wait haha, that was a while ago, right?;) Yet today I want to take you back to that time, which is already a month ago. Namely, in this blog I will tell you how to draw a skirt to your own measurements, as I did for my Christmas outfit this year. I re-experienced how easy and effective that is, so I would like to share the method with you! Let’s do a little throwback to that time: Christmas was approaching quickly, so I decided to start thinking about my outfit. Oops, that caused me some stress, because I couldn’t really find something suitable in my wardrobe….

Happy Sew Year! – 2019 recap

Happy Sew Year! – 2019 recap

So, I don’t know about you, but my vacation is already over! I have been free for a week and a half and am going back to work today. At the start of the Christmas holidays I always have all kinds of plans, which mostly don’t work out as I imagined, because I was not as free as I thought, haha! Recognizable right? Yet the start of a new year is a good moment to look back. What has happened in the past year and what are the plans for the coming period? I found it so nice to see my overview from last year that I decided to make…

Mica T-shirt (Free pattern)

Mica T-shirt (Free pattern)

Do you know the term ‘’UFO’’? No, then I don’t intend spaceships. Online this term is often used to describe UnFinished Objects: Sewing projects in which you get distracted halfway and lay in the closet unfinished. I personally have a few UFOs laying around. Some of them even are a couple years old already. In most of those cases I gave up hope to ever finish them, because the result will probably not be worth it… The T-shirt I’m showing you today, was a UFO for a couple of months as well. Luckily for this one, it always was the plan to still finish it, but my rehousing and trip…

Happy Sew Year! – 2018 recap

Happy Sew Year! – 2018 recap

It’s the end of the year! (Obviously, haha) That can only mean one thing: time for lists and looking back. 2018 was the year for me to start a blog. Although I’m not always posting regularly, and not solely post on my own blog, I do really enjoy it. I hope you do too! Because I love overviews I’ve made a list of the items I’ve created this year. To also be able to draw a lesson here, I tried to list the top 5 items I’ve worn most. Hoping this will help me to be able to decide on forehand what I’ll make and eventually actually wear! Happy new…

My contribution to The Refashioners 2018

My contribution to The Refashioners 2018

Hi there! This year I’m joining The Refashioners 2018 community challenge! This is an online challenge hosted by Makery. We’re challenged to refashion unloved or thrifted garments into something new, to show and experience ”how cool, creative and ecologically and ethically sound refashioning old garments actually is!” I could not let that opportunity slip (especially after last week’s blog;))! I started out with this pink velvet knitted cardigan I had in my closet. I bought it at the end of last winter’s season. I don’t really know why I bought it, but probably just because it was super soft, one of my favorite colors and only €5, oops… It was…

Sewingridd and the 7 gowns

Sewingridd and the 7 gowns

From the moment I started sewing my very first T-shirt, the item at the top of my ”to sew” list was an evening dress. Because isn’t it a huge treat to stride in such a beautiful garment?! And when you have made it yourself, it’s even more special and personal. Plus, you will get more bang for your buck because you can also enjoy the sewing process. No wonder my first evening dress soon followed my first seams. At the end of 2014, this purple A-line dress rolled from under the sewing machine. It wasn’t a masterpiece, but still a personal milestone. I had largely drawn the pattern myself, based…

Fabric markets, you know the phenomenon: a super dangerous place for sewists to go. And still I let myself be seduced to go again and again. Mainly because they often offer better deals than regular fabric stores. So the minute I saw an advertisement for a fabric remnant sale, I knew I had to go there! I was just a poor student, this was the perfect time and place to supplement my fabric stash. The company that organized the sale was Megastoffen which is located in Enschede (The Netherlands). Once every while they sell all their fabric remnants for just €1 each. Of course it is then your own responsibility to check the fabric…
