    Potholders, Gifts, and a Confession

    Confession: I lied. I said the All-Day Beret was the last Christmas present I was going to post, but I lied. Shamelessly. I know! How could I. These Easy Going Potholders were for my former boss. I sort of lost track of them because meeting up with my former boss before Christmas didn’t work out, […]


  • Look at my brand new apron!

    Look at my brand new apron!

    This was originally supposed to be a stash-busting project. I had this pink fabric lying around for such a long time I actually forgot for which project I bought it. Then I decided I needed an apron. Then I decided I needed a pretty apron!  I barely resisted the temptation to plaster bows and ribbons […]


  • The Blue Flower

    The Blue Flower

    Sometimes you have a fabric or yarn that is really beautiful, but no matter where you search, you don’t find the right project for it. This fabric, picked up at a sale for about 3€, was a lost cause. I browsed through what felt like hundreds of dress patterns, but to no avail, until I […]


  • Pears, Grapes and Cherries

    Pears, Grapes and Cherries

    This is something I did a while back, but I thought I’d show it to you nevertheless. When I moved out from home, we bought these chairs from IKEA for my first apartment. I really like their design, but they had boring and ugly covers. Ever since then I’ve wanted to replace them, but I […]

    Introduction to Forestry

    OH THIS DRESS. When I first saw it in the magazine, I felt decidedly meh about it. Velvet just isn’t my thing, I guess. But then I saw a variation in cotton, and I was SOLD. Also I happened to have the perfect fabric for it! A tree dress it was going to be — […]

    I’ll Inspire A Lot Of People To Drink Wine, Though

    I usually prefer dresses with wide skirts, but one needs some variety in one’s life, no? I like this dress (pattern here) in theory, but ran into some difficulties while making it. The pattern is for petite sizes, which are for women under 1.64m; I’m 1cm taller so I figured it wouldn’t be a problem. […]

    Also, Birds Braided My Hair This Morning

    I have a tendency to make dresses that I never wear because there’s no fitting opportunity. See: this dress. It’s based on this pattern; I used fabric I bought in my favourite fabric store in Budapest back in January; it’s fully lined and has the most adorable little “sleeves”. I love it! I also look […]
