SpoOctober Batty Bat

After making the Assembly Line Elastic Tie Sweater some small pieces of fabric were left. What can one do with these small pieces? Now Halloween is almost there I receive emails with lots of creative ideas to make for this event. In the Netherlands Halloween isn’t very populair but when I saw a few bats I decided to turn the leftover pieces into one. Time to start looking for a suitable pattern.

JLH Gable Top two all weather versions

Although it’s more than a month Autumn in the Northern hemisphere we still had days with sunshine and high temperatures but also dark days with clouds and rain. My just made two all weather wear Gable Tops are reflecting exactly both weather conditions.
I used an olive green sweater fabric for the short sleeved version and a dark grey T-shirt fabric for a long sleeved version. I also wanted to use my overlocker as much as possible for both makes.

Fibre Mood Skinny Blake broekje LMV Bo Romper combination

I sew so now and then baby clothes for a charity organisation. This time patterns come form Belgian sewing magazine.

The pattern for the romper was found in an old LMV magazine.

Sew Magazine Clementine Cat well-dressed

I’ve a few new sewing projects but also some sewing techniques on a ‘I want to make/do list’. So now and then I sew soft toys like a sloth, pig, fox and a rag doll.
Until now all these soft toys weren’t able to move their arms or legs. So on my sewing techniques list was exploring how this can be done. 
A while ago I saw this Sew Magazine Clementine Cat. This cat has visible buttons joints for arms and legs. Perfect item for my technique project.

Style Arc Blaire Shirt T-shirt version

It isn’t easy to say goodbye to beautiful Summer days. Days without caring about raincoats, warm sweaters and shawls. The weather still is nice and a T-shirt still can be worn although a cardigan is sometimes needed. Now for my second ‘Sew Long Summer 2018’ blogtour contribution I decided to transform a blouse pattern into a T-shirt. Let’s go to my Style Arc Blaire Shirt T-shirt version

Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8

This Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8 is for my mother. Recently Style Arc had a 25% discount on their patterns. The Blaire Shirt had caught my eye and with 25% discount it was a very good deal. When you order a Style Arc patterns you get three sizes. I wanted size 4 so with my order size 6 and 8 were included. I want to use this pattern for the Let’s Sti(c)k Together September theme but need to work out some more details. In the meantime I started testing a new Elle Puls pattern. You can see this Thursday what it will be. A generous piece of the fabric was left after testing and was just enough to make a Style Arc Blaire Shirt size 8 for my mother.

Two homemade babyshower gifts

Our youngest daughter asked me a while ago if I could make a gift for het sister in law who was expecting her second child. Her sister in law is always admiring the clothes I made for my daughter. Flattered by this words so obviously I couldn’t refuse her request. The parents already knew it was going to be a boy again. Our youngest daughter had no suggestions so I started looking for inspiration. And then I saw this giant sloth on Instagram tegen een luiaard aan in de vorm van een knuffeldoek. I already had this pattern because I came across it while I was looking for patterns to make a soft toy sloth. After printing and finding fabrics I could start making it. Finally I ended making Two homemade babyshower gifts.

LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt

My husband is this time the subject of my sewing projects. I made for him a striped version of the LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt. The LaMaisonVictor Aspen poloshirt is the third time that I’m using the LMV May/June2018 edition. It doesn’t happen often that I use a sewing magazine three times but this edition really had some great designs I could use. My LMV Malmö broek was worn at least once a week since I made it and also once in combination with the LMV Oslo blouse. A while ago I also made a poloshirt for my husband that he likes to wear. I decided not to use that pattern again but make this LMV version because my husband like the fit of his LMV Cliff hemd and LMV Bernie hemd.

LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version

This LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version also comes from the LMV May/June 2018-edition. The Top is named after another Scandinavian city namely the capitol city of Norway. The LMV Oslo Blouse is a cropped Top with long sleeves. LMV made in a denim version. The same fabric is also used for the LMV Malmö broek. You end up with a beautiful one colour two piece outfit. The pictures shows a pretty looking outfit but for my taste it was to much denim. I prefer a two colour outfit and decided to use a large piece of leftover fabric.

This odd shaped piece was leftover after making the DPStudio Le002 Pull. It would take me some time but I had the feeling it was doable to make the LMV Oslo Blouse French Terry version  out of the leftover fabric.

LMV Malmö Broek jeans-style

The May/June 2018 edition of the Belgium La Maison Victor is filled with sewing patterns that have names of cities from all over the world. This LMV Malmö Broek is one of them. Its’s a trouser in jeans-style. Jeans are classic, a must have. Something to have in your wardrobe. I decided to give this LMV Malmö Broek pattern a go instead of my TNT self drafted jeans pattern. My LMV Malmö Broek jeansstyle is also made of jeans fabric with a small amount of the stretch just like the magazine suggested. This fabric comes form my stash.
