DIY My first polo shirt

I love polo shirts. I guess I have at least 40-50. Long sleeve, short sleeve, in all colors.

A few months ago a colleague came to work with a shirt. It looked like a normal shirt but was as long as a mini dress and had a ribbon on the sides. I was blown away.

Unfortunately I couldn’t buy the shirt anymore.

But hey, I can sew hehe

And because I have a liking for polo shirts, I changed my shirt accordingly.
Look at it!

I used a twin needle with 2 colours and triple stitch on the arm and bottom of the cuff. I love the result ❤ ❤ ❤

This won’t be the only polo shirt I sew. Only next time I have to change the pattern because the neckline is too big for me.

DIY – A jacket for your next beach trip

Maybe I have mentioned once or twice or even a hundred times that I like stripes hihi

I have so many different fabrics with stripes that I lost track of them.

I started this jacket last year, put it in the closet and forgot it. While sorting my fabrics I rediscovered this jacket.

Now I finally managed to finish sewing it.

And I used my embroidered badge with the compass for the first time on a piece of clothing.

Wonder why I took the french ribbon to hide the back of the zipper? I didn’t have a dark blue ribbon.
Plus it matches my woven badge 🙂

I love fabric panel – today spring

In my last post, I showed a T-shirt with a dinosaur panel.

I have loved fabric panels since I discovered them a year and a half ago.

The panels for the door or also for the wall are made so fast and so simple. Meanwhile I make them in less than an hour hihi.

There you can see how many I made and gave away.

Most of the ones I sewed were with winter or christmas motives.

This is the second one I made for a colleague. Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph the first panel. She chose the panel and I sewed it.

I think this one with the cherry blossoms is beautiful, but it would not suit my interior.

The panel is not crooked as in the photo. I only used 2 hangers to hang it up, but there are 3 sewn hangers on the panel. So it fits and looks even 🙂

For all who also want to sew a panel, definitely take Vylene for inside. Then the panel is much more beautiful and not so thin.

 

My newest sewing project – A dinosaur t-shirt

I sewed so many things for Miss M, but never anything for her little brother!

Last year I started a project for him which is very time-consuming and so that he doesn’t have to wait so long, I put this T-shirt in between.

I found the Jersey panel a few weeks ago on the internet and thought about David.
Like most 5 year old boys he loves dinosaurs.

David, this is for you 🙂

Needed things for sewing – Photos

Today I actually would have had my first sewing course – day this year.

But I had something else in mind.

However, in order to do something with my favourite hobby today, I had the idea to photograph a part of my sewing supplies.

Yes, I have also photographed needles and scissors, but I have then decided for more colorful motifs here.

Here you go 🙂

DIY Miss M’s first maxi dress

Do you remember the first time you wished for a maxi dress? I was a teenager.
Miss M and her family are invited to a wedding. She wished for a long dress with a spaghetti strap. I think because she saw it at her Mom’s.
She chose the fabric for the dress herself. The first time I saw the fabric, I thought, “Yuck.”
I would never have picked this fabric for a seven-year-old girl.
Her dress – her decision!
Here you can see how the dress turned out. Looks really good!

Two months ago, I bought fabric for Miss M. It was supposed to be a dress. Since there was more than enough fabric for a long dress, I also made the pattern with this fabric.
Now I just hope she likes that dress, too.

I sewed both dresses so that she can still wear them next year. There’s more than enough seam in there.
In a few hours she’ll get the dresses and I hope I can get some nice photos so I can show them here 🙂

Et voilà

Miss M was right about the intense colors. She’s blonde and has very light skin. The contrast green/blue looks simply more beautiful….

DIY A cute Kids rain coat

Last year I saw a children’s coat in “my” fabric shop. Sellers sometimes sew clothes so you can see how a fabric might look dressed. The coat was so cute.

When I saw the coat, I immediately thought of Miss M.
Unfortunately I didn’t like the fabric and didn’t find anything suitable in the next months. Until a month ago!!!

I found a totally cute laminated cotton fabric.

Originally I wanted to sew a coat for fall / winter. But this fabric isn’t warm enough for that.
So I decided on a raincoat that was finished yesterday and I love it ❤ ❤ ❤

When I started to learn how to sew I got printed badges. I still like the motive very much but I wanted something new 🙂
That’s why I got 2 woven badges this time. Here’s my first one. I just love it ❤
