Jag lever loppan!

For a short instance of maybe 4 days it got a little cooler again, hooray! Super practical because that meant that I was able to take pictures in my newest cardigan, I really wouldn’t have wanted to wear it in 32 °C. So yeah, here comes my newest cardigan, my version of the Damejakka Loppa by Pinneguri. Loppa means flea in Norwegian, but as it also means flea in Sweden, so I took the opportunity to show off my rudimentary Swedish, hence the blog post’s title ;) Continue reading

Freedom Backpack II

About one and a half years ago I sewed what is now my favorite backpack. It was the first backpack that I sewed myself I really really liked and wore daily. Back then I ordered the niizo’s Freedom Backback sewing kit via etsy coming all the way from Taiwan. It came with everything that I needed and the parts included in the kit were of a great quality and long lasting. Continue reading

Butterick B6446 Wrap Dress

I made another dress from souvenir fabric bought during my trip to  Raleigh/NC. I bought the fabric at Joann Fabrics in Raleigh together with the flannel fabric I made a Belladone dress from. There are lots of peonies in different shades of pink printed on it. And I think it was not meant to be a fashion fabric but patchwork fabric. The cotton is medium weight and the fabric was 110 cm wide. As far as I remember it was on sale. Nevertheless I only bought 2 yards, because I had limited space in my suitcase. Continue reading

Me Made May 18 – Week 4

May went by pretty quickly. And I wore all of my favorite dresses this last week ;) Well, not all of them, I sill have some pretty dresses waiting to get a chance to get worn this summer. Me Made May motivated me to wear those clothes that usually don’t get out that often an reassess if I should keep them or get rid of them.Here comes the final week: Continue reading

Me Made May 18 – Week 3

May is slowly coming to its end, however the content of my closet is not. I think I have enough clothes to fill another me made month.. At least half a month. Sadly I haven’t identified gaps in my wardrobe that would justify sewing even more clothes. However I realized that my backpack starts falling apart and I already ordered some supplies to make a new one. And here comes my third week of this year’s Me Made May: Continue reading

Me Made May 18 – Week 2

Another week has passed, and I have managed to take daily pictures for Me Made May. The backdrops are far less spectacular than they were last week when I was in Sweden. I had to work, but at least Me Made May motivated me to wear nice dresses everyday to work. I still haven’t gotten to my most precious dresses, as usual I’m sparing them for the end of May. Or for better weather, I don’t really know my motivations.. However, here comes week 2: Continue reading

Me Made May 18 – Week 1

I spontaneously decided to take part in Me Made May again this year. But unofficially, I didn’t sign up and I won’t share any of my pictures on Instagram, as I don’t have an account and am really happy with that decision. I will however, share my daily pictures in the sidebar of this blog and I’m planning on posting overviews with more information every week here on the blog as well. Continue reading

Inca Cardigan

Long time no see! Maybe you have noticed, I didn’t translate a few of my latest posts. You see, I do that manually and I simply couldn’t spare the time. However, as you can see, I found some time to translate this post. It is about the latest addition to my cardigans and its story started back in October when I was visiting Marvin, who spent three month at NCSU for his research. I visited him and brought back a lot of stuff, like fabrics and sewing patterns. And I also bought some local fiber.
