Bumblebee dress for my niece

A few weeks ago we had very special visitors. My lovely sister in law, her partner and their most adorable little girl came for a visit. I got to cuddle my sweetest niece for the first time in about 6 months. She is such a delight! She is a happy and curious little girl, and her smile would melt anyone's heart. Needless to say everyone adores her.

Making things for little people is one of the ways I express how special they are to me. So I made the Bumblebee dress for my sweet niece.

Alice in Wonderland

The story of Alice in Wonderland is turning 150 this year. Lovely Sara from Made by Sara had a brilliant idea to celebrate this event and invited a few sewing bloggers to create something - anything - inspired by this wonderful story.

I think in images. Once I am given a challenge, a series of images start flicking through my mind until a right image kind of pops out from among the rest. This challenge was no different. It felt like before I knew it I had four images of things I could make shape up in my imagination, and let me assure you choosing one was not easy!

While she was sleeping, I made an Alice in Wonderland inspired dress for my daughter.

Dear Prudence, we love you!

Dear Prudence, we love you!

R loves you because of the pockets and buttons, and the fact she can jump all over her daddy, ride a bike, climb benches and simply monkey around without being restricted.

I love you because you are fun to make. You have the cutest collar and unique details. You have a vintage inspired shape. You have sleeve options that makes you perfect for every season. The fact that there are no closures makes me love you even more because my girl can get dressed by herself!

Yep. Both R and I love the Dear Prudence dress, the latest pattern released by Suz from Sewpony.

An ode to laziness

Laziness moves the world forward. True thing guys. How do you feel when you misplace your remote control? Do you enjoy being able to move around while talking to someone on the phone? Who does not feel lost when their washing machine breaks down? There was no particular need to invent a remote control, a cordless phone or a washing machine. These things just made life easier.

Apparently Bill Gates said, "I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job... because he will find an easy way to do it". So, how do I apply for a job at Microsoft? Because after completing this project I feel my chances are pretty good!

My indulgence project

Sometimes a girl has got to indulge herself. She has to get out her best fabric, take her time to add beautiful handmade details to a garment and go slow enjoying the process, savouring every completed step.

The Ishi dress by An from StraightGrain was my indulgence project. There is no doubt about that.

Lady in red

Well, it is officially winter here. I can no longer deny it or pretend the cold weather will go away soon because my wishful thinking cannot cancel morning frost, cold southern wind and gloomy gray skies.

But fear not! There is a way to brighten up winter days! I think R's new red jacket has the ability to do just that!

I miss summer

It is not even winter yet and I already miss summer! So please allow me to share one more summer project before I have to accept the reality that the heating season has started :)

A few months ago Marte from Compagnie M was just about to launch her paper patterns. Marte wanted to make sure everything was spot on before sending files to be printed. I was happy to help her test the Mara blouse pattern again.
