The Geneva Tour!

The title might be a bit misleading.  I’m not on tour in Geneva although I wouldn’t mind at all!  What I mean is it’s time for The Geneva Cardigan Tour the new pattern by Coffee + Thread.  I’m sure it will be amazing so keep your eyes open for all the awesome cardigans that will be popping up over the next few days!  Read or at least scroll down to the bottom for a special code that will get you 15% off the pattern.

Mistery fabric to Twisted Trousers

 

One day I came home from work and found a pile of fabric on my doorsteps.  I suspect it’s from one of my very good neighbors (Lena?) but I always forget to ask, anyway thank you from the bottom of my heart!  It definitely made my day – I mean come on what sewing nerd doesn’t like the sight of a big pile of fabric!  Whoop Whoop!!

I knew right away that some of it would become a new pair of Twisted Trousers for Viktor.

Happy New Year!

I had a very good 2015 both sewing and otherwise.
I turned 40 and in celebration of that milestone I and my best friends since childhood,
who also all turned 40 in 2015, went to New York together.
And boy did we have a good time!
We went on a summer holiday with my in-laws and then I got to hang
out with my side of the family in New York.  So I got a chance to spend time
time with all the important people in our lives.
We are all happy and healthy!
Me in Heaven – aka Mood Fabrics New York.
Sewing related, I got a new sewing machine for my birthday – Happy happy!
I got a chance to join the Shwin Designs ambassador team and got the opportunity to
test a few patterns for Wardrobe by me.
I am so thankful for those opportunities and I hope I get to continue along
those lines in 2016.  I love being a small part of the online sewing community,
it is such a fun, loving and supportive group of people.
I finally have confirmation that the presents for my little nieces and my brand new
nephew have arrived only about a week to late – all my mistake!
So now I can share them here.  I joined in on the mermaid tail francy and used

 

The girls said it was what they have always wanted and my kids have already
put in orders for their own so I better get out of this holiday mode and start sewing.
For my nephew I used the baggy trousers pattern from Nosh, it is a free pattern but it is in
Finnish so I got some help from Google Translate along the way.  I love the style of these
and plan on making some for Viktor.
I also made him the Rowan Tee from Titchy Threads.
The fabric is Duncan and Kate, I think maybe I bought it from Kitshy-Coo but I’m not sure.
The navy one for the pants is stretch french terry from Imagine Gnats
I made the six months old size and my gosh this is sooo tiny, I guess I have forgotten
how small babies are.
I also owed Mila a birthday present so she got the Little Girls Skater Dress from
Kitschy-coo.  Anita has several of these and they are in heavy rotation.  In fact
she has exactly the same dress and she loves her princess dress.
I used Lillestoff organic cotton jersey I bought from Stoffrullene.no
That about sums it up!
Love
Dagbjört.
