Talvikki Sweater #2

This is my Talvikki Sweater number two!

I love this pattern from Named Clothing 💖

I have had this fabric in my stash "forever".  It is the most beautiful dark brown velour from Hilco. Great to finally make something of it.

High/low hem with deep side splits.

The long darts really make this sweater special.

Garment number 2 for my sewing challenge 2018  (to make at least one garment per month thru the year) 😊

🌞 Beautiful sunny winter day!  Cute mouse tracks on the snow 🐁

2018 Secret Valentine Exchange on IG

I joined the 2018 Secret Valentine Exchange hosted on Instagram  by @sinaeishida and @ute_ig in February.
The gift should be made with materials we already had on hand
(encouraging recycling and repurposing).

I made this tote bag for my Valentine friend.

The dark grey fabric is leftover from a shirt I made for my man. (Take a look at this blog post if you like)

I made the cute bird stitchery a while ago, and it was fun to finally use it. Pattern is from Heather Baileys pattern sheet "Birds & Branches". (It´s a pocket by the way - not an appliqué)

The tote bag is fully lined and sturdy.

My 2018 Secret Valentine partner was Anna from USA. She received the gift in good condition and in time for Valentines day 💞

It was fun to participate, to make a gift for a stranger.  And very exiting to wait for my secret gift.
The gift I received was this lovely bag sent from Nina (from Switzerland)  💞 

The Darcy Boxer Shorts

I´ve made a pair of boxer shorts for my man 😊

The pattern is free and can be found here at Measure Twice Cut Once.  

Made of leftover fabric from my Varda Top I made in November 2017. Soft, and slightly brushed, cotton form Stoff & Stil.

These shorts was fast and fun to make.  Next time i will make a pair with long legs for PJs 💤🌛

🌞 Beautiful winter here in Norway (Kvitfjell).

LOTS of snow!!  We had to shovel the roof of our cabin to take off some weight.
