Hi! It’s been a while! In case you’ve been wondering why This Blog has been dormant for quite a while now: We’ve been prepring our cutest DIY project ever! We welcomed our little wonder earlier this year and are completely overwhelmed with joy and love. I thought I’d quickly pop in from maternity leave to let you guys know we still exist, but are currently pretty busy doing other things! Don’t worry, I will be back blogging and sharing projects in the near future. See you soon & happy sewing! xx Charlie Happy sewing! facebook/bloglovin/pinteresttwitter/instagram Stay in touch ..read more

The Fabric Shopping Trap // Why buying less fabric is good for your mind (and the environment)

When I’m not sitting behind the sewing machine, I work full-time as a psychologist. This is why I every once in a while share a mental health-related post on this blog. Please grab a coffee and join the conversation! *** Which one of you considers themselves a hoarder? An addict? Add the word fabric and I’m all in. I’m definitely guilty of having a slightly unhealthy relationship with buying fabrics. I have all the cute postcards, signs and coffee mugs about how fun my fabric shopping addiction is. Fabric shopping is amazing: I get home from a long and exhausting day at work. I ..read more

When I’m not sitting behind the sewing machine, I work full-time as a psychologist. This is why I every once in a while share a mental health-related post on this blog. Please grab a coffee and join the conversation! *** Hello there! I hope you’re all healthy and doing fine considering the circumstances. It’s hard not to lose the spirit these days.  I’ve been thinking long and hard about chiming in on the handmade face masks topic. I had a pretty divided opinion on this and the (scientific) benefit of using them until I was asked by my employer to make some for our team. T ..read more

Another Doris Dress Hi there! After walking about in full-blown winter wardrobe for about two weeks now I’m mourning all my summer dresses I won’t be able to wear in the next few months. One of them is this cute red Doris Dress (by Sew Over It) I made this summer and took on our road trip to France. I intentionally chose a colour that would also be great for autumn and I’m planning on wearing this dress with tights and boots and layered jumpers before winter really hits. pattern: The Doris Dress (Sew Over It), Version 1 (size 10 graded to 12 below hips) fabric: lightweight cotto ..read more

SUMMER IN SWITZERLAND The official first day of autumn has passed already. Although it’s still warm enough to live in t-shirts and dresses, foggy mornings and falling leaves indicate the cold season is just around the corner. Perfect time to share one of my favourite summer makes and vacation pictures. I’m feeling a little wistful summer is ending again…consoling myself with butternut squash and pumpkin soup really does help, though. We spent part of the summer vacation at Lake Geneva, Switzerland. We took these pictures on one of several trips to the gorgeous vineyards near Gra ..read more

Oh, hello there! It’s embarrassing how long it took me to write up a post this time! I have to blame a whole new bunch of hobbies for it. I’ve discovered wool spinning and all that comes with it and have spent the last couple months pretty much doing nothing else than handling wool in all shapes and forms. It’s really fun and distracts me from sewing at the moment. I’ve been making all sorts of little projects for the kids in my family, as well. So I’ve been very much involved with all things creative. People ask me all the time how I have the time to do so many things at once and, well ..read more

Adventures in Amigurumi

Having a knack for creative hobbies can lead to a serious passion of collecting new hobbies and skills (and sometimes ditching them shortly after). I’m certainly guilty of hobby hoarding. During my blogging break this winter I had the urge to try something new. I’ve always adored Amigurumi figures and as they look incredibly complicated to make I never thought I had the time to learn how to make them myself. One evening I had sat down with an old crochet hook and some leftover yarn and watched a couple of YouTube videos on making Amigurumi bunnies. A few weeks later I’d made three bunnies fo ..read more

Happy weekend, everyone! (He’s such a cutie, right?) Today I have another one from the DOG DIY category for you! I really enjoy these doggo DIY projects, but there are only so many things you can make for your pup that you actually need. For us this is mostly leashes, collars and toys. We don’t dress our dog up (if a multitude of different style collars and leashes don’t count…) so I always look for other fun sewing projects that are useful. We had someone make a costum-made dog collar for Aslan that was super cute. It was quite costly and only took the lady 10 minutes to make on her indust ..read more
