A pink unicorn stick horse

S loves unicorns so I wanted to use some cotton remnants to make her a stick unicorn after I found an old unused broomstick. I went through Pinterest to find ideas but finally settled in a pattern published in Finnish magazine Kodin kuvalehti website. (If you are interested in the…

A skirt, a blouse and skeletons

My new favourite blouse is white Diana by In House Patterns. This is actually the second time I’m using the same pattern. I used white drapey viscose remnant which suited nicely for the blouse. The only change I made was that I left out the button in the collar…

I am sorry, I’ve been absent from my blog. I have been too busy sewing, crafting and repairing stuff that I’ve had no time for my poor blog. However, today I got so great pictures from my most recent creation that I couldn’t wait to post them…

Autumn means that S has started her dance lessons once again. The old dance outfit from H&M was starting to look a bit frumpy so I bought a new leotard for S. However, there weren’t any white tutus in S’s size, so I decided to sew…

Time traveling to the 1950s

I have always loved vintage styles from the 1940s and 1950s. The clothes of that era were pretty and feminine without being overly revealing (which is a problem in our cold climate). I bought some black and white checked cotton some while ago and on a whim decided to make…

Somber occasion dresses

I did not make any blog posts in late July and August. Our family was struck by a tragedy when my father-in-law and S and K’s grandfather died suddenly. After the initial shock and while dealing with many things that are necessary when a close relative passes…
