More homemade gifts

  Gifts for a newborn 💕 Drawstring bag made of quilting cotton. Personalized with the little girls name in HTV. Pale pink onsie from H&M, text in rainbow glitter vinyl from Creative Art. For a sewing friend: EAT  SLEEP SEW!! Turquoise glitter vinyl from Creative Art. It's so fun making these gifts 🥰

T-shirt dress (from The Stellan Tee pattern)

Early in October I made a cosy t-shirt dress. I hacked The Stellan Tee pattern from  French Navy Patterns  to make this dress. I lengthened both sleeves, back and front pattern pieces. I used black Interlock and the tape binder attachment on my Coverstich machine  for the neckline and sleeve "cuffs". Fabric is from Elvelyckan Design (Lynx dots college). It has just the right thickness and stability to suit this dress perfectly. I really like this dress! It's cosy AND pretty 😊 Beautiful autumn colors in a park nearby!

Nina Knot Top

I haven't sewn a garment since June!  (Except for the bucket hat a few days ago - if that counts for a garment 😄) So, this weekend I finally made this cute Nina (Knot) Top. Pattern is from SewPony Fabric is cotton jersey from Trådsnella The pattern has several options; short/ long sleeves, or without sleeves, ties and ruffles, or without. Great pattern and instructions! This is the long sleeve version with ruffles at the shoulder seams, without the ties in front. I think the ruffles are SO cute! 🥰 Happy with the result ✂️😊 (Nice to be back at my sewing machines)  

Bucket Hat

Made of Chambray and quilting cotton from my stash. Pattern from a Swedish magazine. It can be worn on both sides. I'm sending the hat off to my aunt in Sweden 🇸🇪 (hope she likes it, and it fits 🤞) Happy with the topstitching. I like it! 😊  

From broken umbrella to shoe bags

One broken umbrella makes two shoe bags: I just couldn't throw away this beautiful Marimekko fabric. I cut the fabric loose and sewed it together to form a rectangle. Ribbon for drawstrings found in my stash. Perfect size! Beautiful daisies in our local park 🥰

Inari Crop Tee

Back in June, I made this Inari Crop Tee 😊✂️ Pattern from  Named Clothing . Fabric is Double gauze Naniiro bought 3 years ago when I visited  MeterMeter  in Aarhus. I cut the facing out of the selvage so you can see the text/brand name. I left the top unhemmed - the selvage is beautiful as it is! Love the result 🥰

Hazelhen Kids Tee

More pattern testing for PatternByMalena 😄✂️ The kids version of the Hazelhen Tee. I love the result of this cute long sleeve kids tee 🥰 As for the women's pattern - it's a great pattern with excellent instructions! Organic cotton jersey and ribbing from Stoff & Stil . This is size 116, and I used my Janome CoverPro 2000cpx with tape binder attachment for the neckline and sleeves. This isn't described in the original pattern, but I thought it would be a nice detail. Holographic rainbow vinyl from Creativeart.no Love this!! 🌈 💕 The tee fits very well, and my sweet niece loves it too, luckily 🥰

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts for a big sister and her newborn little brother 🥰 This little "dress" is based on the Ester & Ebbe free pattern from Threads by Caroline . Text made in HTV, in Swedish and means: "The worlds best big sister" 💕 And for her newborn baby brother: I've sewn the drawstring bag, but the baby onesie is from H&M.

Hazelhen Womens Tee

Pattern testing is fun! ✂️ This time I was lucky to be one of PatternByMalena  test team 😊 Sewn in the same fabric as for the tights in the previous post. This is a great pattern with good instructions and it's easy to sew. You can buy the pattern at her Etsy shop. Great for Yoga practice 🧘‍♀️ Namaste 🙏
