A flower fairy-tale factory

Once upon a time there was a lady who saw a beautiful flower scarf somewhere on the internet. She immediately knew she wanted to have such a scarf, so she ordered one with bluebells, oxeye daisies and purple tulips. As the scarf arrived she was even more excited, and now she also wants a scarf with roses. And while she is waiting for this scarf to arrive, she is showing off her flower scarf to her friends, and they like it so much, that they order their own scarf.

So you know what is going on up here. It is almost like a little flower factory on my table.

But that’s not all I’m working on. My son is quite interested in fashion and design. And he knows very good what he likes and what not, and what he wants and what not. And because he has a limited budget, he very well knows to find his mom.

This time he came to me with this:


He ‘designed’ a bag, but was too anxious to actually draw it. So he wrote everything down, and together we collected the fabrics.


It’s all denim; some new, some used from old jeans and a jacket.

It is so much fun to do this together with him. Every next step I ask him how he wants it; he has to make all the decisions and he is quite good at it.


Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien..I can't wait to see the final result of that lovely collaboration with your son! I am imagining a most beautiful flower factory at your place too.
