Meet ...

this new member of the family. I created this little rabbit for my sister. Her rabbit died two weeks ago and I wanted to give her something to cheer her up. This one will live forever so she won't have to be sad. It was the first time I used my sewing machine to create a stuffed animal and I absolutly loved it. There will be more animals soon ;-)

This weeks challenge is to create your own buttons. You can find all the information and tutorial on the blog: http://scrapandstampsaturday.blogspot.com/

I made this page. You can see my father-in-law opening his christmas present. I used the sketch of Sketchy Thursdays.

Tomorrow is my birthday!!!! I'm so looking forward to it. My sister who lives 2 hours away from us is coming over to celebrate. Can't wait to see her again.

Another bag

My grandmother asked me if I wanted to make her a handbag. As most of you know, I recently started sewing. My grandmother gave me her sewing machine (from the '70s) and now, I'm always surfing the net for cute tutorials.

What do you think? Will she like it?

In a local 'sewing shop' I ordered these name labels. I chose the name 'Sollie Wollie' as my best friend and my sister always call me like that. The little image on the label is a sewing machine ;-)
Enjoy the weekend!

Transformation ;-)

I was in a shop when I saw this lovely baby t-shirt. There were sales and I only paid 0,50 euro!!! I fell in love with the print on it. Then, suddenly, I got an idea. I rushed to the 'Veritas' where they sell zippers and I bought a flashy pink zipper. When I got home, I ran to my sewing machine and ....

This is the result! A little purse for my pocket camera. The lining inside is pink like the zipper is pink too.

Do you remember the layout in my last post? The one with the pancakes? I was one of the favourites at the Sketchy Thursday webblog!!! I was so thrilled when I saw my layout posted on their site. Thanks a lot, Sketchy Thursday, love you!

This is the sketch of this week:
And this is what I made with it:
On the picture you can see the cook that made pancakes every day during tea time while we were in Djerba in 2008.
