DIY Dollhouse with lights

13 August 2017

We built/assembled, together with my eldest daughter, a diy dollhouse with lights as a gift for my youngest daughter for her eighth birthday. It took us at least ten days to finish it, why you would ask well we are always doing it when everybody else’s asleep and finish it early morning. This dollhouse was ordered at http://www.banggood.com. The name of the dollhouse is love castle and yes I modified it. I used popsicle sticks small and big, bought paints, varnish and adhesive foil. Took fabrics from my stash instead of using the one that is included inside the box. And yes I even took a video of the everyday updates we made and of course you will see the finish product.

 

Embroidered Wedding Photo

21 July 2017

It has been ten years since we got married in a catholic church in the Philippines. Although we got first married civilly here in Belgium a year before. I still remember all the preparations and delegation of a lot of stuff with my sister and BFF because I only stayed there for quite awhile. And now ten years has passed. So I thought of embroidering a gift for hubby but it seems like he discovered it while I was preparing for it because he and I shared our google photos and there was a notification on his side whenever I take photos, so there no longer a surprise. Anyway, what matters he likes the gift.

 

Embroidered Photo

27 June 2017

An embroidered photo gifts for my eldest daughters friends since they are all “graduating” primary. I ask an embroidery digitizer from www.etsy.com to have it digitized. My hoop size here is 6″ x 10″ and used a black Isacord embroidery thread. My machine have different number of speeds for stitching and in this case I used them all to speed up but at the beginning I do always use the slowest which is 350spm (175minutes) until I increased it as time goes by due to deadline purposes. The fabric that I used here is from Ikea – Minna, from my stash.

Sweatkleid “Bella” and “Chloe”

27 June 2017

I made a dress for my youngest daughter for her sisters’ primary “graduation”. I combined it with plain yellow fabric and grey fruity jersey. Next is my eldest daughters dress and of course it is for her “graduation”. A plain white jersey paired it with a decorative heart jersey fabrics. Both dresses are pattern of www.pattydoo.de. These are the existing jersey fabrics that I have because I used these also to their other clothing. Both are from my stash and bought at stoffenspektakel.

 

Summershorts “Flora”

24 June 2017

Summer just started recently, well the end of spring it was already hot so I consider it to be summer. I made this shorts Flora, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. Since my eldest daughter has been asking for shorts so there she have one now in addition to what she was wearing already before. It is kind of exciting that I was able to sew clothing for my children or even hubby. The jeans was bought at Royal Tissus.

 

 

Damenshirt/Women’s shirt “Sara”

23 June 2017

My second Damenshirt/Women’s Shirt Sara, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. Normally this is better with jersey fabric but in this case I experimented using a cotton fabric but it wasn’t a good idea since I am big on the tummy area, so if using cotton better if I am slim then it wouldn’t be a problem I guess. I combined it with an eyelet fabric yoke that is from my stash. Flowery fabric I bought it from a recent trip to Stoffenspektakel/Marché du Tissu here in Liège, as you can see it from this video.

 

Rosie Crossbody Bag

18 June 2017

My eldest daughter received a second hand phone from her father and so I have to make a bigger bag for her. On the first photo, this was her previous bag that she has been using since she received it last Christmas. So I used the same handle for this Rosie Crossbody Bag, pattern is from www.swoonpatterns.com. Actually I’ve cut these fabrics long time ago (1 Dec 2016) and it is now that I have decided to sew it and just the same time that it is called for. You may notice it is quite the same exterior fabric and accents like the one from Dollie Mini Crossbody which is also the pattern of www.swoonpatterns.com.
