    A Newly Made Bag // Thursday, 23.02.17

    Hello, friends! I told you in my last post that I spent this past weekend making a bag, and that I was going to show it to you in my next post. So, here I am, actually keeping my word! I sewed all the seams by hand, which is why they are not perfect, I have yet to master that technique. Though, I have to say, I kind of like it like this. The bag is made out of a slightly metallic silver faux leather, that I got a piece off at my local fabric shop. It was in a bin with large scarps of fabric for really cheap, and…

    A Couple of New Things // Tuesday, 21.02.17

    Heyyo, Party People! Today I am showing you some of the new things I’ve bought during the last couple of weeks, even though I have been feeling quite bad recently, I have still gotten a few things done. I’ve bought a couple of pens and a bunch of stickers from Lidl, along with these tins that had biscuits in them, but I know use for stickers and pens. Today my staff and I went to my workplace, and on the way home we visited a few stores. I this little pouch from Panduro, that you are supposed to colour in yourself, and I think that will be my next little craft project. I spent…

    Sunday, 16th of October 2016 // The Blanket Cape

    Hi there, pals! I posted a photo on Instagram the other week about a new project I was starting, which was making a cape coat out of a blanket and some fabric. I ended up using another fabric than I intended, because the other one didn’t work out, but I’m very happy with the end result. It has three functional buttons at the top, for closing the cape – obviously – and two decorative buttons under the arm holes to cover up and/or distract from the seams there. I also used a faux fur collar that was originally on another coat I owned, but didn’t use, since I did not…

    A Somewhat Delayed Birthday Post

    Around this time a week ago, my family and I celebrated my mum’s birthday. I have been meaning to make this post since then, but I’ve kept pushing it forward, think to myself “I’ll do it tomorrow”, but then tomorrow came, and I said the same thing again. I wouldn’t say that it’s been a bad week, it’s been an average one, I haven’t been feeling noticeably worse than usual, but I also haven’t really done anything at all. I was at the dentist, or is orthodontist? It was a regular check-up for my braces, so I’m fairly sure it’s the later, though we do generally refer to everything as…

    Emma’s Sewing Adventures 1.0 – The Blue Dress

    Hey there Earthlings! Today I am here with a post about my latest sewing adventure, which was this blue dress (I’m going to make a little info page about my different “Adventures” series). It is made from a solid blue fabric I bought at Ikea this past summer, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it until December, which is when I initially started working on it. I started cutting out the pieces for the top, and I started sewing them together, but then I had some troubles with my sewing machine, that are now fixed, and I put the project away for a while until a few weeks…
