Pocketlover

Let me introduce you to my new (or not that new actually) t-shirt that I've made. The fabric is NOT second hand, wow. But I like it anyway, I bought it in Barcelona. At first when I hadn't added the pocket, I thought the t-shirt looked a little boring because of the simple shape of it. But then I added the little yellow fake skin pocket and now I love it. Pockets are the best thing in the world, I put them on everything. Even t-shirts apparently.

More shorts

I'm really into making shorts these days and here is my latest pair. Highwaisted with fake leather pockets. I'm really proud of the fly zipper, which was my first one (except one I made on a pair of jeans, but that was 3 years ago and with help from a teacher) The pattern is made by me and the fabric is cotton I think, bought second hand. I really like these ones!

The top is a piece from my collection.













Today I've finished a t-shirt that I'll probably show tomorrow. I get much sewing done now that I've finished school and am unemployed. :)

This is the shorts I made yesterday. They're made in some stretchy fabric from a thrift store. I used lace for the... hm, don't know what it's called... the small things that you put the belt in? Anyways, I'm not very experienced in sewing with stretch materials, but I think it turned out good!

And I don't think I have showed you this top before, have I? I made it in the beginning of the summer, before Barcelona. I have more nice pictures of it on the other computer that I'll post some day.

This outfit is all second hand too. The top is from a curtain and the shorts from some other second hand fabric. Not even the lace is new!

A curtain and a sheet

So here's the shorts and the top. I'm really proud!

The shorts has an invisible zipper (which is not that invisible) in the back and lace trimmings on the pockets. The fabric is an old bed sheet from a thrift store, so this outfit is made of a curtain and a sheet :)

And they were all yellow

After one more day full of sewing, I've made a pair of yellow shorts that goes perfectly together with the top in my previous post. I love them! But you only get a sneak peek untill I have better photos of them. Here:



I hope to show more than a pocket tomorrow!

Today I've been sewing almost all day, and this is what I came up with:



A waist-short top with flowers and a contrasting black neckline with a bow. It's made from a curtain I bought second hand. And the pattern is made by me too. In my head I'm pairing the top with a pair of mustard highwaisted shorts. (working on a pair right now)



I don't know when the pictures started to become so small here on the blog, and I don't know how to change it. But if you click on them they will get larger.

Hello

Long time, no see. As you might know I've been in Barcelona for the summer. I love that city, it wasn't the last time I was there, that's for sure! I worked as an au pair, which I didn't enjoy that much, but it was ok. Anyway, the free time I had I really enjoyed, exploring Barcelona and meeting fun people.

I have way too many pictures to show all here, and right now I'm to lazy to pick out a few. So instead I'm gonna show you something I've made. And maybe some barcelona-pics will appear here in a while. I have some new and some old garments to show you, but they will have to wait (I'm on the wrong computer) So first out is a cake plate that I made out of a plate and a candlestick.

Before:





And a few minutes and a little glue later:
