Wachstuch

Hier mal wieder ein Blogbeitrag auf Deutsch... Ich bin ein grosser Fan von Recycling und habe ein neues Material für mich entdeckt: Wachstuch. Über einen Beitrag von Claudia bin ich auf die Seite von Wachstuchverkauf gekommen; dort kann man sich für eine Restekiste bewerben und bekommt kostenlos eine Kiste mit Resten von Wachstuch geschickt. Tolle Idee!!
Mein Erstling ist eine Abdeckhaube für meine Overlockmaschine geworden... Die steht nämlich bei mir unterm Dachfenster und da regnet es manchmal rein. Also 2 Fliegen mit einer Klappe geschlagen - keine Dreck und Regen auf der Maschine und gut aussehen tut es auch noch. Mir hat es besonders dieses Design im Retrolook angetan. Das würde auch als Tasche gut aussehen.



















Und dann hab ich mich mal wieder an einer Geldbörse versucht... auch schön und das Material ist sehr angenehm anzufassen. Aber das Format ist mir noch zu gross, ich muss weiter probieren.

Like pink?

We had and still have a really great summer this year in Germany. That is why it is time for a beach bag:




Sure, you got to like pink!!!

What I like about this bag is that is seems normal size, but you can fit lots of things in because of the pleats. The second pic shows the bag with a small towel and big book inside and there was still room for odds and ends....

Also, it was my first try and it is really easy to sew. You can find the free pattern herehttp://warehousefabricsinc.com/blog/pleated-lined-handbag/

Memories and a hippo

When I was little, my dad used to tell me stories and he was really good at it. He made up a long- term story about a hippo called Puffy and when I saw this toy, it really made me smile


So I intend to put a smile on someone else's face and will give this Puffy to a little girl who turns 5 soon and shares my birthday with me - happy birthday Sabine!

Lifesaver quilt - blogger's quilt festival entry

This is my entry in the blogger's quilt festival in the category Two Color Quilt.
It is one of those quilts that get better and better while making them... I had a pretty good picture in my mind, but when I out the pieces together and the quilt actually became a quilt, I was more and more intrigued with it.
The red fabric is mainly Moda Mama Said Sew.
Ah, and by the way, the quilt is what I call monster size... :)

New flyer and a big thanks

I have to say a big thank you to Julien for once again making such a brilliant design for the lieblingsdecke flyer. Here comes the new flyer:



And this is flyer number one:



If you like it as much as me, visit Julien's website here.
He has been ever so kind to me and whenever people see my flyer, they make these funny oo-ee noises you make when you see very cute puppies...
Thanks Julien!

Very good time....

I had a very good time last weekend. It was my first bee meeting, in fact my first sewing get-together at all. At first, I felt a little intimidated, but these ladies are so lovely!
And it was really fun, lots of laughing, good food and lots and lots of ideas and chatting...
so everyoe agreed there has to be a second time around, next time in Frankfurt and I will try my best to be an almost-as-good hostess as Aylin (the hostess with the mostest)...

OK, this is far more than I usually write, so it's time for some pictures. Here is what I made (not alone, girls, I know, and I will confess ;)

My first item is this iPad cover in an almost manly black....


I found it is not quite me, so it is for sale in my DaWanda shop...


The seond thing I made is this really gorgeous bag:


You can download the pattern at Burda Style for free.
The very special thing about this bag is that is has a twin sister in Berlin and you can see both bags together in this picture which also shows you that we had a great time



 And the third item I wanted to make is this pouch:



Doesn't it just look so cosy?
It turned out I did not even have to sew it myself ;)....

So, thinking about the good time puts a big smile on my face! See you all again soon.

New block

I wish I could say it was my idea, but I saw this block in Tacha's flickr stream and knew I had to try this pattern myself. And this is the result:


Thanks for sharing, Tacha!

Ein Hauch von nichts

kein Ahnung, wie man das übersetzt. Hier die Idee:


Ein Tutu für Kinder, in diesem Fall Babies...
Kein Ahnung, ob die Idee in Deutschland schon verbreitet ist, aber die Fotos, die ich gesehen habe von Babies im Tutu sind total süß. Und es muß ja nicht immer rosa sein.

Ich jedenfalls hätte es als kleines Mädchen sehr gern gehabt. Stattdessen hatte ich einen Gardinenrock (toller Name, eigentlich war es nur eine alte Gardine, das hatte wenigstens einen Anklang von Spitze und damit Glamour).
Gardinenrock war aber auch gut.
Ich denke, ich versuch es auch mal in anderen Farben.

Ob das was für DaWanda ist?

New idea, new product

Well, new for me, many of you have probably seen it before. But it is just so cute:

When I posted this picture on Facebook, a friend of mine asked me what it is, so in case you have the same question: It is a diaper cover for babies. Actually, I do have some more of the fabric and could make it bigger, if you asked me nicely.

I will show this product on Sunday at SchnickSchnack Markt in Darmstadt as a test run and see how the reactions are.

SWAPPEN Kissen fertig

SWAPPEN Deutschland by lieblingsdecke
SWAPPEN Deutschland, a photo by lieblingsdecke on Flickr.

I hope my partner likes it.. 

What can I say? I used scraps and Kona Snow, but in hindsight, I could have used a pattern fabric rather than solid. 

And for the back I used some darker blue fabric:
