Floral beanie

A new beanie for me!
It's very practical to sew my own hats since that's what I wear everyday. This one's been on my mind for a while but I couldn't make until today since I had misplaced the pattern and didn't find it until this morning! (Messy me...)

I did not make the crocheted flowers because I don't know how to. I bought them a while back from Panduro for another project.

I wore the new beanie to work and got several compliments! And it's such quick and easy project to make.

Bye for now,

Stripey skirt

Decided to make a remake of one of my fave skirts and I'm happy to say that I'm happy with the result!

I measured the original skirt and made a pattern. The skirt is the same in the front and the back except for the waistband. 

I had half a metre of striped navy and white jersey from another project and used that to try out the pattern I drew. I also had some (suspicious) navy double knit which I used for the pockets, waistband and to finish the pockets and the hem.

I made a casing in the waistband and put in some blue and white ribbon.

Hope you had a nice weekend! I did! :)

Another Everyday skirt and my first beanie

I finally got around to making another Everyday skirt, according to my latest sewing list. It's made of chambray fabric which I ordered from Stoff och stil (along with some more fabric, of course). I'm very happy with the fabric and recommend it to anyone who's thought about buying it.

I also drafted a pattern for a beanie from one of my old store bought ones. It turned out a little big, but I fixed that and now it's fine!

Bye for now,
