2 dresses in 2 weeks

I like to create girly dresses. It easier to make som girly than boyish I know. You can stash a girl not a boy. if I do my housband won’t dress my boy. So theses ones are for sale or my little girl can wait 2 yers to use  them. She is 1 so these are in size 3years.. The fabric on the cherry one is from Kaufman and the elephant dress is a curtain from a sale. Simple and nice but I used more time than I was supposed to, like always huh…

Norwegian: Ønsker du å kjøpe disse koster de 350 /stk.


To make a good children’s jeans are not so simple. Firstly, you need good fabric that tolerate children’s play. You can not use thin cotton of not only going to make some light summer pants. Buying pants is often lined which is time consuming to sew. So that was not very relevant. And jeans usual boring and packed in pink stuff or skulls..

This is girl pants because I like details like flared legs and a little floral decoration. It’s going to be a challenge to create boy pants, but I’ll try that too, thought maybe insects can be cool? And some cars or excavators ..

Anyway, these I have really enjoyed making these, Fabric is from Hilco, easy cotton from Strong and good fabric that fits very well to children’s pants without getting the jeans look. The print is made ​​with screen print and exactly how I’ve done it is secret:) Pockets, you can design with this tutorial. Trousers you  buying is either too large so if the kid just jumps a little they fall of or they are made ​​so narrow  in the legs so he/her  can hardly move.. Therefore, I used rib around the waist, but not so tight that that it’s enough. In addition, I have therefore made drawstring. Was very pleased with the model and these will be on market before they are put up for sale. :)


These are in 98/110/116 450,- NOK

How to splice bias tape in a circle

You want to splice bias tape in a circle just as the picture above. I will show you how you can do it perfect and the splice-seam lands on the leg inside side-seam.


Sew on the bias tape as you normally do. I sew it on from the backside and then turnover, but here,  make only this first seam around. Important: Begin to sew the distance like the width of your seam allowance(brown and black). If your seam allowance on the leg is 1 cm yours garment, begin 1 cm from this seam allowance.(red arrow)


Sew all the way around and stop with the same distance as you started with. se were my scissor point? Watch up so you don’t sew on the seam allowance..


You end up like this picture below. Begins and end with the same distance to the seam allowance in the middle.

Now fold the fabric on the _inside_(here brown) seam and hold it like I do here.


Take the bias tape up and above and sew on the line like I show you here. If you have a very dark bias tape you have to feel the fold line and maybe mark it.


Now cut of the bias tape unfold and sew. Now as you see below will the splice match with the other seam. Continue to sew on the bias tape as you normally do all the way around :)

Ferry natural tunic

I commute by ferry every day. It’s pretty boring. I mean VERY boring. I love my job so of course I do it and we can’t move. My housband commute the oposite way of me. So then I have to spend half an hour each way = 1 hour a day.  Something I have to do when I’m nottrying to sneak me to sleep under the deck. Just look? wolden’t you get very bored just after one day? Yeah thought so :)


So I spent about 60 hours witch this creations. It look like maybe 10, but to crochet a tunic takes like forever? I got a little tired during the making of the skirt but happy to get true it. Its my fist crochet garment and I’am quite happy witch the result. The recipe you can find here, but it’s just in one size. A slim japanese girl hehe. But you can easy ajust it. I think crochet takes a lot more time than knitting but I love it :)

Crochet a simple cloth and a tubular cover

I most have something to do while I watch a boring movie my husbands sets on. Sewing is not that very sosial and with crocheting I can do both. This two things light up my kitchen and its very simple to make. The cloth is made from rows of half double crochet and edging around  with picot. The soapbottle-cover is just simple single crochet stich around in a tubular form until you get the hich you need.
