Geometric dress coat

Our girl was wearing this coat during the first warm days of the year, when she told me it was getting too small. At first I said, no it cannot be too small yet you are only wearing it for one year. Then I realised I sewed that coat 2 years ago. Time to sew... Continue Reading →

Cases for pencils or glasses

I love making handmade gifts and cases are just perfect for that. The book Zo geknipt! 2 includes several cases, big and small. Last year I sewed a case for glasses and this year I sewed up the pencil case. Last year I wanted to give a handmade gift to my dad for Father's Day.... Continue Reading →

Last minutes mittens

Plus I like colour blocking and combining fabrics, so I ordered some new softshell fabric to make the Kids Jacket from SHO! The red... Continue Reading →

Sofiona Designs always lives up to bringing new exciting patterns, at least that is what I think. Also this time they deliver, they designed a bracelet that is quick and so much fun to sew and great as a present (think Christmas gifts). The best part about it all is that you can get the...

A softshell Fairtytale coat

A softshell coat for our eldest was already in the planning for half a year. However with pattern tests and other clothing that were more needed, the softshell coat kept on being pushed forward. Then we were going to one of the Frisian Island for a couple of days and the weather forecast wasn't that... Continue Reading →
