I'm trying some projects with the cards from my bosatlas. some giftbags and little boats...not very special but I like the look of it.

wedding mugs

my sister in law is got married yesterday and I wanted the boys to have a their own present to give. so I made these mugs with their drawings. Very simple (via hema) and they turned out surprisingly well. you can't even see the borders of the print. their uncle and aunt will have the first pieces for their trousseau ;-)

for the first time I tried to make a cushion cover with zipper (which turned out to be very easy)...but I used a recycled zipper (felt very good about the recycling part) but when I putted in the cushion to test my hard work..the zipper broke down...aaarrgghhh...think this is the last time I recycle zippers..

fabric treasure

I found this fabric at de stoffenmarkt, which is a very pleasant market to search for fabrics. I just fell for this one, I love the print, the texture and think I can find a lot of nice projects for it. the first one is this little cushion for jilles his room.

old maps

before I throw things away I always figure out whether I could give it a new destination. So when this old "bosatlas" came across I decided a garland would be nice. I surprised jilles and stije with a garland in their room and they were more enthusiastic then expected. unfortunately the pictures didn't turn out well...maybe I will give it another try to show them better.

new booties

my parents in law asked me to make a baby gift. I experimented with leather to make these booties. Thought it would be difficult to sew the leather and felt, but it was very easy..like how it turned out. hope the baby boy loves them as well.
