Dress up your hair for spring!

Very soon we will all be outside wearing summer dresses, dining outside and wearing sandals! How about wearing a fun piece in your hair? These are all one of a kind, fun and easy to wear.

A skirt that spins!

A while ago I had to patch a favorite skirt and while doing this I quickly traced the pattern and made this skirt.
It was really easy and quick and looks great, but best of all she likes it!
Happy Friday!

A lot of prints and color going on!

Small change , big impact!

A while ago on one of my many wonders around the isles of Savers I came across this amazing piece of patchwork/fabric history! 
Someone went to great trouble to cut up outdated clothing form the 60's and 70's and sew them together!

I could hardly believe my luck and grabbed it at once! 
But after I washed it and looked at it I was unsure of its future. I first thought of cutting it in two and making two "matching" throws for the kids rooms.
The way this was pieced together though was row by row across so just cutting in two was not an option. And then there is was one day! I was going to hang it on the wall!



I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from this big color change! Every time I come up the stairs and see it I just love it! It has made the room so warm and cozy!
The kids also love lying on the bed and choosing their favorite block.

Do you remember wearing suits from this non-destructive fabric?

Spring hats in the making

It has been so hard to get going this year. But wait it is really hard for me every year!
I have some amazing fabrics to work with this season! 

Look at this hat! I am so pleased with how it came out. The fabric is so lovely and easy to work with. I also made a similar hat with the blue roses.

This is "innocent crush" home dec collection by Anna Maria Horner.

I love how the roses just gets absorbed by the hat .

Organic cotton cowl

 This week I finished two more cowl scarfs. One for me and one for this little girl. 
After making the previous one for myself so big I started with far less stitches and it worked out really well. I find myself keeping mine on the entire day, you  forget that you are wearing it!
The other amazing bonus is the yarn. I used Nature's Choice organic cotton from Lion Brand Yarn.

 Wow so worth the price and so soft and comfy to wear.

Luckily I had yarn in this cream color that matches her coat and made up this neck warmer for her!
I love the way it looks with the coat, but best of all....she likes it and she keeps saying how soft it is !
