Finished: Darling Ranges Shirtdress by Megan Nielsen Patterns

When you want to sew every free minute just to complete your current project, you know it’s a satisfying sew.

I made the Megan Nielsen Darling Ranges dress, version 3. And I never going to take it of again. Well, almost. 🙂

Halfway MeMadeMay

It’s May 16th and I documented my outfit almost every day. I am pretty impressed by myself, because normally i’m not really dutifully 🙂

For every day (except one) I wore at least one Me Made garment and still haven’t worn every garment i made! I’m very proud of it, because I’m sewing since September 2015 so that’s 1,5 years now.
Also I’m good at thrifted clothing. My jeans are mostly from garage sales/ thriftshops. And all my RTW clothes are with me for a long, long time. Lees verder “Halfway MeMadeMay”

Finished: Saunio Cardigan of Named Clothing

The second make of the SewMyStyle Sewalong!
This time it was the Saunio Cardigan of Named Clothing. It is my first try with the Named patterns, and to be honest I am a bit intimidated by the patterns. They are very hip and have a lot of constructive details, and I always consider them out of my league (read: comfort zone).

The same with the Saunio Cardigan: a short but boxy/ oversized cardigan. Very simple, and could be elegant with a thin, very long hipster girl who likes to play with her silhouet. Everything I am not 🙂
(#momcore of the non hipster kind is more me)

But I tried the Saunio Cardigan (a heck why not) and I was pleasantly surprised. It kinda suits me!
Woohoo!

Finished: Toaster Sweater #2 by SewhouseSeven

Woohoo, my first make for SewMyStyle! The Toaster Sweater of Sewhouse7 was the first pattern to attack. And I made it the second day of January. So quick!

I planned a Sew-All-Day day with my friends Marianne and Freya. We sewed all day, ate a delicious lunch Freya made and had a blast!

How to make your own stamps and stamp your fabric

how to make your own stamps and stamp your fabricJeez, that’s a long title. But sums it up pretty well 🙂

This is superfun to do with your kid!

(or alone, because who need kids for fun stuff: I enjoyed it tremendously)

Your own drawings (designs!) on your t-shirts, dresses, table clothes, leggings, handkerchiefs, quilts, beddings, dishclothes, cardigans..  I think you get the picture.

Sewing plans – 2017

Happy New Year!

I started my sewing plans for 2017 with a kick start. I spend New Years Eve making stamps and decorating t-shirts and fabric with Ieke (my 6 year old) and my mum.

The fabric of my Toaster Sweater 2 and the birthday dress of Ella (and Ieke’s very similar dress 🙂 ) were made.
After dinner I was so tired and I was afraid I couldn’t keep my eyes open till 12. So I just kept going. Ironing (so much fabric!), cutting out the Toaster Sweater pieces and tracing the Saunio Cardigan pieces. Pretty pleased with myself for keeping myself awake, gheghe.

NY resolution #sewmystyle

(English below picture)

Een heel vroeg voornemen. Ik doe mee aan #sewmystyle: 12 kledingstukken maken in 12 maanden. En niet in mijn eentje, maar via Instagram georganiseerd project met deelnemers over de hele wereld! Alex Bartholomew heeft dit bedacht en uitgewerkt. Vet tof!

Nu de patronen eens goed bestuderen en misschien (stiekem) een beetje vooruit werken. Want ik merkte dit jaar dat de zomervakantie een naaistop betekende.

Wordt vervolgd!

A very early NY resolution: I’m joining #sewmystyle: 12 pieces of garments in 12 months. And not just by myself, but in a through Instagram organised project with participants all around the world! Alex Bartholomew is the organiser. SO COOL!

Now I need to use my time wisely to check out the patterns and maybe try to (secretly) do something beforehand. Because last year I noticed the summer vacation means a sewing stop for me.

To be continued!
