My creative corner

i rescued this chair from the streets and gave it a new life...

...and made a matching sewing machine cover

it's a mixture of some of my favorite fabrics and colors
like some apple?
or a little strawberry?

i like the fresh look of my corner. and i have to do something about this pampers box. it holds a ton of stuffing...

the apple girl...

a while ago i made this skirt...
 ...but we had nothing to go with it. so i made a top yesterday. and here it is:

bright and yellow with red buttons! happy summery...

a slightly ruffled back

again... notice the red stitches on the straps!

a little embroidered apple to go with the fabric of the skirt and red stitches! 

look at this little model of mine

see you on the street!

butterfly dress & headband

I am home from my sewing vacation and finally brought back my sewing machine. Here is the first project I did... I used a similar dress my girl owns as pattern. 

 I used elastic in the front and back for a nice fit around the chest... and bias tape for straps.

 This is pre-made pleated trim in blue-turquoise. I couldn't resist when i found it in the shop...

 For the headband I simply sewed up some solid turquoise cotton and added a cut out butterfly from the same fabric the dress is made of. I also added elastic on the back-part for better fit, but left the front straight. (Elastic is about one third of the headband's length)

A close up of the butterfly... sorry for the hair. What to say - a toddler on the playground!
