Spring is slowly coming and we have to start thinking about what to wear this summer, the girls have grown a lot lately so new clothes are a must. A great way to start summer sewing is joining the KCW ( kids clothes week) Sewing clothes for your kids a whole week 1 hour a day! This week is a busy one but yesterday I managed to sew a summer short for Mila, a quick and easy project.

Yesterday I went to Amsterdam together with Sofia and spend a lovely day together. The day started at the house of Esther (babyccino) where whad a jummie brunch with her sweet and welcoming family. Then we went to the booklaunch of Ingrid's book Kringloopgeluk in the shop of Jane ( all the luck in the world). What a great event it was, the shop was filled with lovely products and lots of creative women. Some of them I already met in real life, some of them I knew online, there was just not enough time to talk with everybody....
It was great to meet Ingrid again and her book is so nice, it's full of beautifull pictures and has a lovely vintage feel. My favorite DIY idea from this book are the handmade threadcards she made of thrifted papergoods. We left the shop with a lovely book she signed for us, vintage teacups and cute thank you notes that included a origami bird & boot.

You can never have to many bags, don't you agree? I made this big shopper for the doll with my favourite Echino fabric ( from this lovely shop) and a matching skirt too. The mini backback is made with suedine, makes it look quite real !
Have a lovely weekend with lots of Shopping!

When I was a little girl I wanted to become a fashion designer, my dream grew bigger when I got older and finally I went to fashion school, I did not complete fashion school but I guess there is still a little fasion designer inside me because I simply cannot stop sewing new outfits for the dolls and rabbits. Luckily for me I have a fan living in my house called Mila, she loves the new creations I make and loves dressing up all her dolls and makes some clothes herself too ;-)
