What is your next sewing project?

April 16, 2015

Hoping to inspire some of you to make your own things. These are my latest finished sewing projects:


Designed and made a doll for my youngest daughter. I made the body out of bed sheets from the 70ies and fabrics bought from my favourite fabric shop Stoff og Stil.

Check out Dana made it for a sewing pattern on how to make your own doll basket. I winged it and made my own pattern. My version got a bit too floppy and I should have used a thicker fabric as well as lined it with a thicker interfacing.



Toddler modelling mittens

Woolen mittens

Also I’ve knitted some red woolen mittens for my daughter. They are connected with a plaited string. Very practical when the kids are little and therefore avoiding losing one (or both) of the mittens. Ravelry has tons of great free knitting patterns if you would like to knit a pair too. I also would like to recommend with more than 80 000 free knitting and crochet patterns and a nice selection of video tutorials.

Water proof mittens for my active little son which loves digging in slushy snow. Traced some old mittens and bought bright green wet weather fabric from Stoff og Stil. The mittens are lined with fleece and have an elastic with velcro around the wrist.
