Day of DIY # 62. Fancy lavender.

For christmas last year I tried to make as many gifts as possible. One of my sisters wanted lavender bags to put with clothes. This time I wanted to make them a bit more fancy. Anyways, I made a bunch and only gifted half of them. So last week when I had some time (and motivation! wow such crucial, very important) I finished up the rest. And here they are since I never blogged about the other ones. This is my contribution to Husmorsskolans Syförening this week :)

 Here's what I started out with which was pretty cool since this was the time consuming part. The fabric is an old sheet from my grand father <3

Here they are stuffed with lavender. Also, I switched thread 4 times for this project. If I thought changing the thread was less boring I ofc would've made a rainbow. Recognize.

A seam across and some thrifted cotton yarn in a bow. Finito!

These are almost too cute to be stuffed in a cupboard or drawer 8) Just look at them hanging about on the sewing machine.

Yay for being creative!

So what happened in may?

An update, hey there I'm still here. I realised I blogged nothing the whole of may. Oops. Haven't taken that many pics either. But here are a few.

Finally put all the pieces together. It has been a touch warm with 400g of wool in my lap this past week...

I had a day off work this week and had a productive day :) Spent some time with my sewing machine and a cup of tea. My swedish grand mother gave me this cup. Cats <3

I've read a book for the first time in a long time. An old favorite, still.

Had a crafty sunday with my tribe. Some of them made belts. Lots of woolly tassles 8)

The bf is skating again. This is summer.
