Hello lovely ladies! How nice of you to stop by. Today no knitting! As I mentioned last Sunday, I would show what I made with the fabrics I bought at the fabric market. The first 4 items have been finished. Sounds crazy, but they were really the most simple items one can make. First there are 2 pajama trousers for son nr. 2. They are made within 2 hours each.
You only have to look at his fists to see how much he liked showing!
So the other trousers I photographed without him in them.
Stars on a grey background. Sounds a little bit boring, so I added a red lining for the waistband and a couple of red buttons, just for show.
Then I made 2 new shawls. I’m wearing a scarf/shawl every single day. In Winter they are usually made of warm woolen fabric, but in Spring and Summer I want them very light and airy. So I bought two fabrics which are very light, one with a very summery feel to it, and one with more warm colours. To make them into rectangles, I tore them. This way you are sure to make them straight. Then I used the overlock machine for a simple finish of the seams, and voila, 2 new shawls!
18 Years ago this day, was freezing and it was very slippery. Today the sun shines abundantly and it’s a wonderful 12 degrees outside. Why I know this so exact? It’s the birthday of our oldest son. Today we celebrate his birthday, and I must admit, 18 years sounds very different than 17 years!
