Dutch Blue Bird


Hello and thank you for your lovely comments. It is always a pleasure to read them and I appreciate them very much.

I had planned to make a post today with some pictures of Brussels, because I had planned to go there last Saturday. But Murphy’s law came by in the shape of a terrible headache so this trip was cancelled and hopefully we can go somewhere in the next few weeks.

As promised, I will show you the last few presents I made for Sinterklaas. The first one is a hat I was asked to make for our oldest son. He really likes to hide himself in almost every possible way, and this hat, …., well see for yourself:

He is actually a rather handsome boy to see, can’t you tell?

The last gift I made were a pair of socks for our host-daughter. She is from Costa Rica and there, even in the night, temperature hardly ever drops below 20 degrees Celsius. So you can imagine that she’s having a lot of trouble dealing with the cold nights we have. She is always wearing double pair of socks, even in bed.
Because she is a very girly girl, I decided to make a pair with flowers and with a little bit of purple and pink in them.

On my table last week:

A really soft, brown fake fur fabric, a medallion with an embroidered bluebird and some Dutch cotton fabrics.

Can you guess what I made with them?

Right, another bag. I just love to make bags and to match different fabrics.

Hi Dorien..love your newest batch of handmade goodness! You do have a handsome son...even if he is all covered up in his black headgear, the socks are divine and the bag exquisite.
