How to sew an easy bag
21. May 2019

Take some strings and look what you get: a string art contest – ahem no – you get Tantra, the famous/infamous Indian philosophy of self-realization and ritualistic practices as Tantra literally means fabric referring to a fabric of words – ahhhh no – what I really want to say is, take some strings and you […]

Me Made May 2019
15. May 2019

It’s May. The sun is shining, birds chirping happily in the blooming trees. Bees are hunting for the best flower and this – my friends – is me: flowered out in handmade garments 😅. It is the first time I participate on MeMadeMay. This initiative was founded by Zoe from So, Zo… What do you […]

The suprisingly ripped Jeans
30. April 2019

I know you expect to read a post about my finished wrap dress… I too expected this. But I surprised myself by tackling a long-time project instead: taking in the waistband of a long-loved jeans. All of you have seen photos of me and you noticed I am a bit curvier at my backside. Not […]

I did it again or is it already again again? Sewing something that doesn’t fit. You my dearest readers will know this better than me, as I suppress every thought about my craft-fails – a very helpful method to stay motivated with sewing. I highly recommend it :-DDD I have this lovely Japanese sewing book […]

Oh no – my knitting is outdated
9. April 2019

The first two paragraphs arey a very long intro. If you want to read about my meagre progress with the lila knitted sweater and are interested in Kitchener stitch: skip and jump forward 😀 Oh No… I am outdated, outdated by my own knitting. Wow what an avowal. I must accept I will never be […]

The intro: some of you know I have migraines. I have them often, very often and I am always on the search for preventive measures which do not involve medication with side-effects even more gruesome than the migraine. One helpful action is action (sorry, for the only mildly funny pun). Precisely endurance training like jogging, […]

The bloody scrubbies
19. March 2019

Stress testing sustainable crochet scrubbies Look I crocheted some fossils. These are face scrubby fossils. They are made from organic sea shell which will purify your face by cutting away everything that’s reaches more than 2 mm over your skin. Like your nose or your eyelids… This purification will draw a bit of blood which […]

The dark side of the sweater – an experiment
12. March 2019

It did not work out. In the end I had a sweater I will not make again. I lost my precious fabric to the realm of destruction. Above my sewing machine dark clouds are gathering. Far away I can hear thunder rumbling and while looking down on the seems of my sweater I notice small […]

The gloomy fabric market
5. March 2019

Not much ado on the knitting front, spring is also gone and perhaps tomorrow the world is coming to an end. You don‘t believe me??!!! Than you are a wise human being, because that’s only my inner grumbler speaking. Actually, nothing especially bad happened. But the wonderful sunny spring weather is replaced by storm and […]

Sewing the Stella Sweater from Fibremood
26. February 2019

I am boring. And a coward. Now it is out. And as it is #nedleworkmonday you have guessed right, I spoke of my sewing abilities. Last year I think I have made approximately a million half circle skirts with an elastic waistband. At least if not more 😀 This year started with an orgy in […]
