Until two weeks ago I left the house in a warm winter jacket.
And it was 77 degrees today.
Yesterday I drove past my favourite park and saw that everything was colourful.
A good reason to take the camera and take pictures on a sunny day.
I’m about to start with my favorite flowers: Daisies 😀
The next two photos look like I changed the color. But the tulip field really looked like this!
Many other visitors of the park took pictures with their mobile phones because the colours red, yellow, orange were simply amazing.
I don’t know what kind of tree it is. But some of the trees with pink flowers are in the park and you can see the pink from afar.
A lonely pansy at the house ❤
That dandelion reminded me of my childhood. After school, I used to pick dandelion for my hamsters in the meadow.
This is my last DIY project this year for Miss M.
Originally I wanted to sew a jacket with Christmas flannel at the beginning of December. But I just forgot!
I have 3 different flannel fabrics which are related to winter / christmas.
So I talked to Miss M.’s mom and she picked out the snowman’s fabric. This jacket can also be worn after Christmas.
But only sewing the jacket without appliqué would be sooooooo boring!!!!!
First I thought about taking the snowman from the flannel. I like the flannel fabric but I didn’t really like the snowman for the jacket.
On the internet I found free cliparts with snowmen and printed one of them.
The idea with the scarf came to me very late and I was afraid I would not get the delivery in time.
But luck for me, the knitted tube came on Monday 🙂
Here’s the jacket from the front. I’ve stitched a few snowflakes on it.
Here you can see the flannel lining. I like it very much – otherwise I would not have bought it – but I don’t like the snowman so much to apply it.
I didn’t apply anything to the back of the jacket. At first I wanted to do the snowman too, but unfortunately I didn’t have enough time.
Now a closer look at the snowman. I have sewn the scarf only in a few places to make it look more real.
And another jacket for Miss M.
A few months ago I sewed her a skirt with dots.
I found the lining fabric on eBay and the mushrooms with the dots brought me to the idea to sew a suitable jacket for the skirt.
I didn’t have to think long about the motive for the application. I copied a piece of fabric and printed it in different sizes.
Okay, the colors are very spring-like but I hope she’ll like it anyway when she gets it tomorrow 🙂
My challenge: One year - I will not buy clothes - I will upcycle to make what I need - everything from underwear to evening wear! Join me for tips, exclusive BrawHem makes, and inevitably some hilarious disasters...
