Ikea handbag

Last week was dedicated to sewing (I really missed it :)
I had planned to sew an handbag , something simple to take to the market with me. So I took a piece of fabric I had bought at Ikea (really cheap by the way) and made the bag.
I think that it is really good for a first try.
The inside is also made of another Ikea fabric (I have to admit I am a fan!) and it closes with a magnetic snap.

And I still managed to get time to sew another cushion cover for my living room...

Hello Kitty ... without whiskers

An unforgivable fault ... Hello Kitty without whiskers.
I hope she forgives me.

Something new

This holiday I've made something new that I had in mind for quite some time.
Mothers that have little girls know how it is to have hair clips all over their house. And probably this has happened to you: you chose a really nice outfit for your little one and you want to match it with a special hair clip but you just can´t find it wherever you look .... and a few days later you find it in the washing machine!
So I thought I could make a hair clips holder:

I think it turned out really cute. What do you think?

Felt on holiday

It´s good to be back! Don´t get me wrong, I love to go on holiday, but the truth is that I was already missing my house, my daily routine and obviously my blog.
This year I took felt on holiday with me and this was what I made:

Felt hair clips

And now I'm proud to present my first felt hair clips.
Lots of people had already asked if I could make some so here they are:

I hope you like them as much as my daughters did (they want them all for themselves!).
