Although seasons are getting darker
sometimes that's just not enough:

Sorry, sold!

Spring in winter times

A little fridge-magnet-flower-bed to keep summer feelings in cold days...
Want one, too?- go here!

It's been a while...

I'm really in lack of time, but I try my best:
some little lady bags, always nice for birthday presents.
Thank god I have such charming boys who are often invited by girls- so I can play around with pink, flowers and all this girly stuff :)

And - I won't forget the little boys:
a cosy cushion with an application of a picture my husband drawed for me. He should have become a childbook illustrator, I think!

... of course I've been to the fabric market "Stoffmarkt Holland" and had to buy some little tiny wee pieces of so lovely fabrics and other small stuff. See, what to do with them...

Flea market finds

Last weekend we've been to a flea market and I found some realy nice buttons.
(I'm not going to tell the story about how my baby grabbed some and took them to his mouth...)
Because I think I won't be able to give them away I'll make some rings for myself.

This is the first one and it took me hours to choose and combine... But I like how it worked out:

It's really fun and the kids were busy for a while, too!

I also found this very nice cross stitched picture which was "prisoned" behind glass. I prefered to free it and have it pure on the wall in the babys room.

Cross stitching is something else on my to do list, I really like it but more things are waiting to be finished, first. In advent time I will post my big cross stich project I did about three years ago.

Not brandnew... (part 1)

...but worth to be shown - some items I have made more or less long ago:
This bib for my youngest (which usually has to be changed just one moment after I put it on him- a real spit baby...).
I've tried to sew this circular framed piece of fabric with stitched letter. I thougt I've seen at a tutorial here , but unfortunately I couldn't find it anymore. If you have any idea, just let me know.
It looks quite "handmade" but it does its job and for both I like it.

To be continued...

Diaper Pouch

In the last days between nursing ill children and celebrating first day at new school I was busy crafting these diaper pouches with crocheted embellishment: one for me, one for little baby Luise- just arrived two days ago and the others to have in my shop.

...a new bag, this time with a cloth flower brooch, flowered linning and stuffed with flanell to stay a bit more in shape. The button is made with polymer clay.

Good fellowship

The left one is about 37 years old, the right maybe 3 weeks, but they get along with each other, 'cause they're one of a kind.

How it all began

Recently, I found this

in an old photo album and I was really surprised to see that things obviously started earlier than I thought.
It's me at my grandparents home surrounded by ribbons and THE german sewing/pattern magazine Burda. Unfortunately I couldn't yet figure out what's in my hands...

A comment from Suse from minderjahr reminded me of this poor little neglected blog.
It turned out as I was a bit afraid it would: deciding on crafting, blogging, care for my shop, surf the web and live my real life with family I must confess: this blog will always be last on my list :-(((

Nevertheless I try to do my best and come in by and by to show things I did or like or even both!
For example I made these little tampon holders:

and a bag with fitting tissue and tampon holders:

the button again is made with polymer clay.

They have gone to DaWanda but I love it so much, I'm working on one for my own.

Talking about shoes

I'm really happy about these baby shoes I made. They can be worn reversed, depending on what you like and what it fits with!
The pink pair will go to my shop at DaWanda, cause I don't have a baby girl...
The blue will stay here. They were the first I made and didn't work out very well, 'cause the idea of making them reversible came when they were already done, so the handsewed inside is not really done 'with love'.

At the moment I'm working hard on some more of my tissue holders. I ran out of polymer clay to mould buttons, so I have to wait until the postman will bring my order and sit down, putting feet up and twiddle my thumbs.
Meanwhile I could show you my favourite shoes:

They are from CAMPER, which has a line called "twins", where the left allways looks different from the right shoe. I really like them, but I changed the button, I thougt this one was nicer. They should be cleaned soon. You know what I use for it? - Lipstick!!!

First of all...

...I would like to say "Hello" to this big blogger-community which I like so much and am really exited to join, now.
It took me quite a few weeks to decide starting- and then establish- my own blog, 'cause what
vintage plaesure expresses in her blog is exactly how I feel about it. But all the comments there encouraged me to do it , nevertheless. Although your creativity intimidates me a bit...
I decided to go here with English, 'cause most blogs I like are and I catch myself thinking English when I'm busy with some crafy stuff.
Maybe I'll change this later again, when I find out nobody understands me or words fail me, literally. So excuse me faults, please!
Anyway, I like to have a blog at least for myself to archive things and thoughts I make ,so I don't have to think it over and over again.

Reviving my hidden pleasures and talents started about three months ago. While nursing my baby and thinking about how to bridge the financial hole between his first birthday- when government stops paying "parentsmoney" which they recently shortened from 2 to 1 year- and his entrance to nursery school with 18 months giving me time to go work outdoors.
So, there should be an opportunity to earn some money while keeping the house and one thing- at least- I can do is sewing!
I made a couple of tissue-bags 'cause I like them so much and think everybody should have one.
I also think this will be the only stuff I will ever give to sell.

Instead, inspired by all of You lovely crafters I spend lots of money (if hubby knew...) to buy nice fabrics and all kinds of accessories, sewing or crafting somehow one prototype after the other which I wouldn't sell because I like them too much, myself.
Time to re-do is rare, having three lovely boys aged 10 years, 5 years and soon 5 months, who wants to be fed, dressed, entertained, hugged and so on...

In short words, throwing all insecurities and ifs or buts overboard, I finally dared to enter here and we'll see, if I can make it.

Soon more...
