Shall I ?

Tomorrow my advent calendar will start. I think. Nobody wrote a comment on my last post, so I don't know if anyone is intrested. Shall I make one? If at least one person give me a YES! on this post, I will do it. Come on now, I really want to do this!

My own advent calendar

As you know, christmas is not far away. I felt that I wanted to do something special here on my blog before christmas. And you know the advent calendars you had when you were a kid, I kinda miss them. When you got to open one flap each day before cristmas and find something in there.

Well, I thought I would make my own advent calendar here. A DIY-calendar.

Starting 1th of december, ending christmas eve (which is the day that we celebrate here in sweden), I will make a small DIY-project every day and share it with you here on the blog and write how I made it. It can be re-makes or made from scratch. It can be christmas decorations or christmas presents or something totally different.

So, at least one post every day filled with fun projects and tips, I think it will be really fun, hope you're with me!

Fabricaholic



Cotton, cotton, poly/cotton, cotton, poly/cotton, poly/cotton, wool









I bought lots of fabrics in London, on Goldhawk Road. I've never seen so many fabric-shops at the same street before. And I've never bought so many dotted fabrics at the same time before.

Frills









Months ago I posted a sneak peek on a garment I was working on, and now I've finally finished and documented it. So here's the little top with the chiffon frill. I like that the buttons and the lining matches.

London again


More Portobello.


What a cute sister!


We managed to catch two typical-London-things in one photo
- the red bus and Picadilly Circus


Rokit vintage = <3


I'm awesome in my new mittens!


I love brightly coloured houses.

So happy together

London was great!

I will just show some random photos, there's no particular order.


Me, lost but happy, on our way to Portobello market.


We found it finally! I love Portobello market.


How cool isn't that wall? I want it in our apartment!


We found the sweetest little shop ever, somewhere near Oxford street.


Sisters in Hyde park.


A typical tourist-photo? Well, we were actually tourists!


Portobello market in my heart.

There will come more photos soon. I can't give you all at once ;) And I will also write more about what we did and what I bought (fabrics!!). My sister is hanging over my shoulder now stressing me, she also wants to write on her blog about london. So check out her blog soon as well!

So long!
