I have no idea how to name this post so I just thought handmade would be nice since I'm talking about handmade stuff.
My head is always full of ideas but when I'm home from work I'm always to lazy.
I just hang around on my sofa and watch olympics.
In my head I'm working on 100 projects but in real life I have several projects unfinished waiting on my desk.
I keep buying fabrics for my 100 sewing plans. But all I do is folding them nicely and put them in my fabric shelf.
Do you know this problem when there are to many projects flooting in your head and you can't kick your ass to start ?
Gladly I finish some projects...but very slow.
A friend of mine asked for bag since she saw this post. I told her that I would definetly make her one but she has to pay for the fabrics since it's a big bag and good fabrics are not cheap at all.
I gave her the adress of my fave online fabric shop and she picked 3 fabrics.
I ordered them and after the usual one month wait they arrived.
I finished this bag in one day. It's an awesome pattern by i like orange too and pretty easy to follow.
The bag is really big but who doesn't like big bags ?!
Another quick project was this little coaster or wall hanging.
I made it as a little thank you gift.
I really love those patchwork houses and I have another patchwork house on my to do list. But since I already told you about my long to do list you know this will take forever.
For the christmas in july project I made a postcard bag for my partner Ellen. Ellen is originally from the US and is living and working in Amsterdam.
She really loves to travel so I thought a bag for her postcard and notebook would be nice.
I used some of my fave linen fabrics for the top and the inside pockets are made from a lovely vintage fabric.
The little bird charm matches the style and vintage button so nicely so I had to add it for more cuteness.
