... anoter UFO (unfinished object) less in my stack.

the daughter of my friend sent me fabric and zippers and asked me to make her pencil cases,

I love the idea but did not find time for sewing, now they are finally finished and are on their way.

I had a little left over fabric and used it to make matching change purses

with credit card pocket. I hope she likes the results.

Have a great weekend.

Fast gift idea

if you are meeting friens it is laways nice to bring a little something, here is the little something I just finished

This is a great gift idea and so easy to make, this is a simple white kitchen towel I bought at Target, I love using these, because they have visible lines in the fabric so it is a lot easier to center the embroidery design. I embroidred the chicken, added somd robbin for trim, added a hanger and a tag. If you do not have an embroidery machine, these towlels look great just by adding some fabric ad trim.

Hope you have a great weekend

Kitchen red-white

I was browsing the net this weekend and came across some absolutely beautiful pictures of scandinavian kitchen designs most of them had kitchen decor in red and white. I just love these colors. I have a bunch of red and white fabric so I got busy doing my own. Here are the results.

I made a german style "Utensilo" it is a fabric basket made from sturdy linen fabric with another layer of white linen fabric and batting. The lining is red and white gingham. the towel was one I of my well worn and loved kitchen towels, I know it has seen better days, I gave it a little make over by embroidering a red and white chicken on front.

I hope you all have a great week and Happy crafting :)

pillow case dress

after a long Summer break I'm sewing again

I finally got the chance to sew a Pillow case dress.

nach einer langen Sommerpause hab ich mich mal wieder an die Naehmaschine gesetzt. Endlich hab ich ein Pillow case dress genaeht. I used a very soft corduroy.
I cut it to an a-line form and added cutouts for the arms.
Dazu hab ich einen ganz weichen Cordstoff verwendet , ich habe die Seiten schraeg geschnitten und dazu noch Ausschnitte fuer die Arme. Dann wird das ganze oben umgenaeht und ein Band durchgezogen.

I also embelished this t-shirt with Hello Kitty, a must for a Hello Kitty Party.

ein Hello Kitty t-shirt fuer die Geburtstagsfeier darf natuerlich auch nicht fehlen, ich habe einen Sticky auf Filz gestickt und ihn dann aufgebuegelt und festgenaeht. There was enough left over fabric for a mimiature dress for the Baby

sister of my little neighbor that will be born soon.

Es war gerade noch genug Stoff uebrig fuer ein Minikleidchen fuer die kleine Schwester, die bald geboren wird.

This dress was super easy to sew I'm sure this one will not be the last one.
