- Gutermann sewing and embroidery threads
Hallo, meine Lieben! You won’t believe it! After so many years of sewing, I’ve finally made my first (wearable) pair of trousers! (Not counting any shorts I’ve made.) Traumatised by hundreds of very unhappy experiences shopping for well-fitting trousers I decided at some point that sewing trousers was very difficult and frustrating and certainly nothing I wanted to try.
Hi everybody! Today I want to share with you a lovely – brand new- sewing book as I’m taking part in the Little Lady Liberty blog hop. In case you haven’t heard about it yet, Little Lady Liberty (or Sew Pretty for Little Girls in the US) just arrived last week – for you to get your hands on it in time for the Easter holidays!
It’s a gorgeous little book with more than 20 sewing projects for little girls (and everyone who likes sewing for little girls)! 128 pages full of beautiful photos and fabrics.
I’m in a pretty good mood today not only because the sun’s shining and it’s my day off (hooray!) but I think I finally have my sewing mojo back. Phew. I was getting worried!
Since before Christmas I haven’t really sewn much and that wasn’t because I was lacking ideas (there will always be way too many in my head) but, to be honest, pretty much due to the fact that I just didn’t feel like sewing. Instead I read a lot and started sketching again. I haven’t done either in a while and normally I only read during break times at work or on the train. Curling up on the couch with a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy day is awesome!
I have a new favourite pattern! No, seriously – I love it to pieces!
I was lucky to be asked by Lisa & Alex to test the new Sew Over It skirt pattern last autumn. Right now I’m totally into making skirts, is it’s easy, quick and the perfect piece to wear at work. Skirt are much more versatile than trousers (I think) and you can never have enough in your wardrobe!
