Sophie’s World


Hello lovely people! On April 14th 1990 at 15.45, a little girl was born. Fast forward twenty-something years, she started to sew and loved it! That is where I presume you come in the picture. As you might have guessed, that girl was me. I’m turning 30 and I want to celebrate it with all the sewing people that cross my way. For the occasion, I have gathered some of my favourite sewing brands to host a sewing challenge for […]

Prepare for the challenge!


MakeNine2020
Hi, everyone. It’s been a long time since I’ve actually blogged for myself. But it is about time I announced my wishes for the make nine 2020 challenge. I’ve done this challenge for about four years now, never have I completed the challenge. I’m hoping that I at least get to finish half of this list then I’m happy. To make matters harder, I really challenged myself. To break it down: The Sunday sweater from Petit Knit. The lovely Mette […]

So it was a big adjustment to suddenly be putting on weight. and for a few years, I had a steady weight gain. I […]

This is the third year I’ve participated in #mmmay and I’m so happy I did. I got to learn a lot about my wardrobe that I wanted to share with you. But first, let me show you what I’ve been wearing in the duration of may 2018. I started May by trying to make a theme each week, and think I’ve somewhat managed it. I wanted initially to make it about the fabric. Trying to match prints theme or colour […]

Trello fabrics
I’ve been trying different apps to organize my pattern stash and fabric stash together. I came across this article from Colette pattern about apps to organize your sewing. I tried using the Memento app, but didn’t like the fact that you can’t use it on the computer as well as your phone. Then I came over Camille from Deer and Doe suggestion of using Trello¬†for her fabric stash. I have to be honest, I didn’t find the app or website […]

Sophie’s World #4 – Organising my stash


Hello sewing friends. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas celebrations, eaten a lot of good food and laughed among family and friends. I certainly have, and I wished it didn’t have to end. But we have to come back to reality, work and everyday life awaits!
