I bought a japanese pattern book on Etsy a while ago, called New York style kids. So far I have used the patterns for a this wrap jacket and pair of trousers. The patterns are really smart and simple. The jacket is just one piece, plus arms. Both patterns were modified slightly; I made the jacket with lining, and buttons instead of ribbons, and the trousers with elastic bands in top and bottom. The original pattern was a little to short for my long legged boy!

A bit wonky... but cute. When I ironed the finished work I discovered that one arm was much wider at the neck than the other. I have no idea how that happened (well - it might have something to do with my multitasking during knitting...: ) I used babywool and (slightly altered) pattern from Dalegarn.

August is now 4 1/5 months, and the toys are starting to mount up. Storage was needed. I made this basket (matching the quilt I made last summer) out of two different fabrics and thick vlieseline, one round (19 cm diam.) and one square (30x57 cm) bit. I ironed the vlieseline to the outer fabric, sewed the short ends of the square together and then sewed the round bit on the bottom. I did the same with the lining, exept left a few centimeters for turning the finished work. Then, I sewed the tops together, turned through the hole in the lining, and closed the hole with a seam on the right side (this is in the bottom of the basket, so it doesn't show). I have cut fabrics for a second one - but haven't had time to mount it yet.

The temperature outside is minus four, and August needed a scarf that was warm and easy to put on. Crocheting is not my strong point, but I thought I would give it a go anyway - a sort of "make it up as I go along"-kind of scarf. I had some leftover alpaca-yarn that I thought could be nice. I made a hole in one end, and the other end slightly wider, so it doesn't loosen as easily.
Welcome to my blog. I love making stuff! So here you will find regular updates of my many projects - for my self, the home or my adorable baby: August. Normally I work as a graphic designer, but now I have one whole year maternity leave. That means lots of time to spare between feeding, diaper-changes and naps. And of course; drinking cortados and reading newspapers...
