Swimsuits!

In my last post I hacked the Kamaria Sunsuit into a bikini and amazingly enough that inspired Mgeni the designer behind Sansahash to make a swimsuit pattern.  But she didn’t just use the Kamaria as an inspiration but also the Lilah Top and Dress.  So here is the L&K Swimsuit!

Kamaria original and hacked!

Alrighty, I’m still here in case you were wondering!  So, May just flew by in a hurry.  But it sure was a great month.  My besties from Iceland came to visit and we had sooo much fun, you can’t even imagine.  We celebrated the Norwegian national day.  Then my in-laws came to visit and having family around is so wonderful.  Anitas RG-club (rhythmic gymnastics) had a great show celebrating the 5th anniversary of the club, that meant she had lots of extra practices and I helped out with making some of the costumes – dear lord!  Nothing came undone during the performances so thats something!

Don’t worry this is not turning into a diary kind of a blog!  Today I’m joining some amazingly talentet ladies on the Sansahash Summer Blog Tour!  During the tour you get 40% of ALL Sansahash patterns.  Be sure to enter the give-a-way for a shot at winning a pattern of your choice, both through the rafflecopter at the end of this post and on Instagram, you should also check out the other participants on the tour and enter the give-a-way through them to up your chances.  Now lets get some photos in here!

Issie Top Collection

So, I’m hopping on the Issie Top Tour Bus today along with two lovely ladies from Belgium With love by Eva and Stannel and I really don’t even know where to begin!  Maybe its best to start at the beginning?  That will take us all the way back to 2014.  Way back then I made the Little Betty Top by Sewpony and I even wrote a little blog post on it here.  I’ll show you a little preview…

I mean common how stinking cute is my baby girl and her Little Betty Top?!  I really loved that top.  I have learned though that you don’t make an entire top out of rib knit.  But hey I stencilled that butterfly on and painted those dots so that’s something. Continue reading “Issie Top Collection”
