Hallöchen, ihr Lieben!
Hope you’re having a great week so far! I’m starting to get a bit stressed by the wedding preparations, especially with things involving the dress. A blog post was long overdue, though, so I’m trying to squeeze this one in between all the fittings and muslins and whatnot.
This is a really quick refashion project I wanted to share with you. It’s a loose-fitting embellished crop top I made from a dress that the Mr’s grandma gave me a little while ago. (scroll further down for before pics!).
Honestly, after a couple of weeks of vacation and laziness, it’s hard to get back into crafting, photo-editing and blogging mode.
So as not to overwork myself I’ll start by sharing some of my souvenirs from Iceland and the Faroe Islands with you! Apart from two books these were all sewing or knitting related (of course!)
First of all, the wool! You won’t find many craft shops on the Faroe Islands, but when you find one it’s a knitter’s dream! Most people live on sheep farming and as you can imagine, Faroe wool is pretty awesome. I bought a 100g ball of 100% sheep’s wool in a natural colour in a little shop call Igloo, in Torshavn, the capitol of the Faroe Islands.
Hi everybody! Today I want to share with you a book that I pre-ordered on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. And since I got it last month I’ve been making plush animals!
And if you’re asking whether making plush animals is different from making clothes: Oh my, yes it is! But more on that later.
The book “Sew Cute to Cuddle” by Mariska Vos-Bolman includes 12 easy soft plush animal patterns and step-by-step instructions to make them. The book came out 8th September this year, so it’s basically brand-new! The patterns are full-size and in the back of the book. All you need to do is copy them and then cut them out, some bigger pattern pieces will also need to be glued together.
