Bags for little ladies

This weekend I have made two little bags. The bags are presents for twin girls, age 6. I hope they will like them.

It is only two weeks left until our Dear Jane adventure begins, and the countdown has started. I can`t wait to get started, and hope you will follow our journey :)

Have fun sewing!

Enjoying some weekend sewing

This weekend I have enjoyed myself in my sewingroom, making a little bag for my workphone, with a inside pocket for notebook and pen.

I had no pattern, just went along with the idea I had. If I make another one, I will make it a little bit wider, then I can fit my cell phone as well.

I have also made these two mugrugs. I started out with a dark teal fabric, and this is what I ended up using. Man, it is hard to change ones color palette! But then again, I don`t feel a strong need to do so. I guess I will always be a hopeless romantic :)

Have fun sewing!

I`m back!

Sorry folks! Time just flies by so fast these days, I tumble exhausted into bed every night. Big changes at work leaves little time to sew. Today I brought this lovely mugrug and bag with me to work.

They are both a Christmas gift from my dear friend Lena. So even if things are hectic at work, I have some fabric to look at and touch.

I bet I can find something in my office to fit into this cute little bag :)

Soo, what else have I been up to lately? Not much! This is what I have been working on lately. I have no idea what I`ll end up making!! I just like the colors :)

Next month things will change though. On February 12th we start on the great Dear Jane event. We are 13 women that for the next 8 months or so will meet up with one of my favourite quilt teachers (Hanne Schneider) and make our own versions of this wonderful quilt. And I have sworne that I will only hand sew..........

Have fun sewing!
