I don’t know most of the flags, but I liked the idea of a Christmas tree for everyone.
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.
Did you also put your boots in front of the door on December 5th in the evening? And there were candy in your boots in the morning?
Or did your parents order a Santa Claus in your house who always knew what you had been doing all year? And fortunately there were always small gifts anyway?
When I was little I was terrified of Nicholas because he knew all my secrets!
Later I found out it was a friend of my dad’s hihihi 😀
Even though I have been too old for Nicholas for a long time, I still love this tradition.
That’s why I sewed a panel and hung it on the door this weekend.
I woke up this morning and it was all white outside. Snow everywhere!!
All I had to do was to find my woolly hat and gloves (it happens to me every year. One is surprised by the cold season hihi)
I took my camera and made photos.
boats are waiting for the next summer
here you can see how little snow has fallen. But enough for a snowman ❤
here are my so-called ugly shoes 😀 . They don’t look nice but my feet stay warm and dry
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 🙂
Here the front of the jacket

The last days I have been on vacation at my favourite beach ❤ ❤ ❤
One night I recorded the sound of the sea with my mobile. It was a little windy as you can hear 🙂
I’ve taken lots of photos
The next photos are made by low tide
The sheep ensure that the dikes are firm. I think they just eat and sleep hihi
I don’t know what these things were used for before the sea destroyed them
Sunset – more people took photos there instead of in daylight hehe
Dancing on the beach ❤ ❤ ❤
When I’ve sewn the girls dress with the school supplies I found remains of french terry fabric I used for a hooded jacket. Not enough for another jacket for myself, but enough for a little girls hooded sweat jacket.
I’ve made 6,7 or 8 hooded jackets for myself but this small jackets are way more complicated hehe
I started with an very easy jacket, Nothing special! I used the dress fabric as lining for the hood.
Here my first jacket for Miss M 🙂
My next jacket has been more elaborated 😀
I used this jacket to learn how to applique
Remember the maritime dress with the paper boats?
I had more than enough fabric left over when the dress has been done.
First I searched the net for drawings of a paper boat. I printed my found in different sizes and sewn it on the back of my jacket
The front got a paper boat too. This time with Miss M’s initials. I also made piping with the lining fabric
For lining the hood and the front I used the dress fabric. For the back lining I took the pocket fabric
Front of the jacket
Yes, I know. The pockets are a little displaced
Back of the jacket.
Unfortunality I put the paper boats a little to high on the back. The hood is covering part of the boats 😦
