Do you think before you sew?
20. November 2018

Naturally we are all thinking constantly, while eating and walking, while reading and baking and while sewing. Contrary to some meditation teachers our brain cannot stop to think while it is alive. Nevertheless, although I am alive during sewing (mostily) my sewing is not always well considered. In my dreams handmade clothes should follow the […]

Knitting the Pipipink Sweater
12. November 2018

I still do not understand my crafty soul. I seem to work in strange spacings. For weeks and month, I started one new project after the other but never finish them. And suddenly there is this one project which I work from start to finish. This one project is like a starting signal to unbury […]

Ida-Dress for Dinosaurs
29. October 2018

A big hello to you all and I missed you so much. I was one week in Frankfurt and as we came back we had a funny water problem in the bathroom. So funny that I am only now back to writing for #needleworkmonday. The water of shower and basin did not stop to run. […]

Toaster Sweater Mania
9. October 2018

No, these three words in the title are not random. They have a deeper meaning. They proof that I can sew a sweater that I can sew a sweater in three attempts that Sew House Seven makes wonderful patterns. Wow, I got the sentence finished, this was tough 😅   As always, my first passage […]

18. September 2018

But the biggest horrors of all Lovecraft probably never […]

11. September 2018

Do you like to buy or make birthday presents? I love this… If the job of a ‘present-buyer’ would exist, it should be mine (if you also want it, no problem, I would share :-D) Naturally there are some basic parameters which should be fulfilled, like me not being broke and having a bit of […]

The cutting of the dreadful dress
22. August 2018

I did it! And no, I am not Britney Spears and shaved my head or played with my lover’s emotions, which is the context of her song as I learned while googling for this post… Perhaps I should have been clearer and written ‘Ups I did it again’ but this would have been a lie. […]

The summer slump sewing post
8. August 2018

It is soooooo hot here! I mentioned it before in about 100 comments on my steemit blog … and I repeat: it is super and unnaturally hot. Tomorrow we await 39 degrees. This temperature is completely new to me. I sweat on my hands while knitting – honestly :-DDD But the weather will not stop […]

How to sew a half circle skirt out of panels

This time you will not laugh at me – no humour in this post –  only success 😀 I will show you an easy method to sew a panel skirt. If you want to skip my fantastic story why I made this skirt and only want to read the tutorial, jump to the headline “the […]
