Misc IV

Hey hey! Well, you might know what's going to happen in case I do not blog anything for a while. Right! Things I have made are piling up and it is time to create a 'Misc' post! :) So here we go!!!

I have seen a wonderful dress-blouse-tunic in Lauren Moffatt's latest collection. But as I couldn't find anybody to donate me 382 US$, I had to turn into a copycat and tried to make my own version...

Ahh, I admit, the original one is more beautiful. I liked this wild silk very much in the fabric shop, but unfortunately the gold thread inbetween the stripes gathers the silk and makes it less plain. Also I don't like the length. It is too short to be a dress and too long for a blouse. I am thinking about shortening it to be paired better with jeans.

Also, there was a design contest run by the German BurdaStyle magazine. The task was to design a dress which every woman would love to wear. Fabulous idea, I would have loved to get a professional pattern for my own design. Anyway, in short, I didn't win. :( 
Guess my future challenge will be to try combining several dress patterns to get it done on my own! :)

And as I have already told you, I am about to make my very first quilted patchwork blanket! It is not finished, yet, but here you can already see the front and back patchwork.

And! Last but not least I made some zakka!

Lots of little fabric pouches...trying hard to use up my fabric scraps! ;)

Find a wonderful tutorial on SeeKateSew

And little handy needle books!

So that's it! Hope this post wasn't an overdose! By the way, thanks for all those lovely comments you left in the last few weeks. If I haven't answered you, yet, I am sorry. I will try to catch up! Have a wonderful day everybody!


  1. Ich finde das Kleid voll schön! Hast du mal probiert Schnitte selbst zu konstruieren?
    Ich hab übrigens bei Facebook eine DIY-Blogger-Gruppe gegründet, damit man sich untereinander auch ein bisschen austauschen kann und vielleicht zusammen mal Projekte starten kann, würde mich freuen wenn du Lust hast dabei zu sein :-)

  2. WOW ! I love the front of your quilt ! What a bobby dazzler x

  3. your interpretation of lauren moffatt blouse is absolutely stunning. I love the colors! oh so nice idea what to do with scraps.

    It's a pity that your design wasn't chosen, it was lovely.
