Boys garland

For Jilles his birthday I made a garland. I found it more difficult to make a color and pattern combination for boys. I think I need to buy some more fabrics to make better combinations ;-).

new fabrics

Last week in Washington, I visited a fabric store. Josefien guided me, otherwise I would have been lost, the store was so big! Amazing. I managed to buy some nice fabrics and also got a beautiful Washington fabric as a gift, thanks again Josefien! I already used it to make a 'sinterklaas' gift, so I can't show it yet ;-). In the states they have a lot of reproduction fabrics from different periods, I like them very much.

quick treat

Jilles turns four today! Because we were on holiday and Jilles had to give his treat the next day, I made these little gifts (while suffering from my jetlag) some collorfull foamstickers, ricepuppets and a Jilles stamp (made earlier). Jilles was very happy with his treat.

finally made the pattern

I got the pattern for this fabric basket from vlijtig and finally made it, I find it hard to fit the innerpart to the outerpart, but I'm sattisfied with the result. I stuffed it with some sinterklaas candy (how irressistible this time of year!). It's also a gift for our friends in the states. I bought the fabric in the US in a webshop and now I'm taking it al the way back, funny how things can go.

short trip

This week we stay with friends in Washington, we're looking forward to see them. I made them some gifts. I will publish this post when we're already arrived, because otherwise they might see there gifts before unrapping. By the time it's is published hopefully Obama is in the white house, we can check that out ourselves, funny..

preparing for 'sinterklaas'

Sinterklaas is almost arriving. Jilles is already practising the songs and he is very excited. In preperation of his arrival I made this garland. It's so simple, I saw the idea at a fair.

new treasure from france

My parents suprised me again with new things they found at the "marché aux puces". Really fantastic, now I have to figure out what to make out of it. Even Stije and Jilles were enthusiastic about the tapestry.
