Gold purse

I'm not a great purse-seamstress (is that a word?), but a tutorial on Sew mama sew inspired me to make this. Wooden handles from Panduro and a shimmering gold fabric. This will look good when I'm dining in Rome some time next month!

Skirt and tie-tie belt

A tie-belt made of two neck ties. Tie-tie. Get it? And a a-line jeans skirt. Not much to say about that.

Spring in the sofa

A couple of new pillows for the sofa. Light blue and slightly floral. The embroidery is machine sewn, with thick silk thread.

Scarf with all the trimmings

Remember those Balenciaga scarfs a season or so ago? Loved those! Here is my attempt at a knock off. I'm just missing the charms (and some heavy eye make up...). The fabric is a light cotton cut to a triangle, and the edges are trimmed with black fringe, lace and pompons.

New suit in action

On request...

New York style kid!

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!
