I am a strong supporter of DIY. I love making stuff and I firmly believe it is important for my kids to see the “behind the scene” of “stuff”. And there is two sides to that scenario too. One is to appreciate stuff more, because they will know the effort that went into making it. […]Read more, you know you want to!
Believe it or not, the reason why I mend (and sometimes make) my kid’s clothes is not the money. Making clothes, even fixing them is not always cheaper. It is simple, today “time is money” and everyone who’d sewn anything in their life will know that it takes time even to make the simplest thing. […]Read more, you know you want to!

These were surprisingly simple to […]Read more, you know you want to!

I made this softie during nap time, for the baby boy we went to visit yesterday. Very simple project from an old Ikea Fredrika fabric with tree prints. Note: stump needs to be made wider otherwise it will fold over because it can’t keep the weight of the tree top. P woke up and had […]Read more, you know you want to!
As the title says, I think I am awesome! My whole life I was freaked out of sewing with knits. I started a while ago with some upcycles and it really wasn’t that bad at all. But to make a T-Shirt was impossible to imagine for me. I thought I needed a serger, my machine […]Read more, you know you want to!
