Sophie’s World


W1
Let me first say, I have the bests of friends. Hands down. I know they love me and I don’t know if I could ever repay them back ever again. So the next one to get married, watch out, it’s a hell of a love storm coming your way! Before that time too of course. This was during Easter vacation, and I had a jammed packed schedule. I had to plan every day to make room for everything I needed […]

Wedding post #1 – The Bachelorette Party.


Sophie&BHL2
I  recently just got over the hump and made it to a 1000 followers on my Instagram account (YAY!), so I’m celebrating buy having a giveaway! First a little history about the my relationship with By Hand London. Back in March 2014 when I decided to start sewing my first move was to purchase the Elisalex dress pattern. While waiting for the pattern to arrive I read everything on their sewalong for the pattern twice. I was so inspired and […]

Sophie’s World #2 – GIVEAWAY!


So this is going to be the title of some of my update posts or just in general “what’s happening” post that is not a specific pattern or something I sewed up, but it will be sewing or at least crafting related don’t you worry! I thought I would start with summarising the year that is about to pass. Here are my best nine on instagram: I love showing you my makes on instagram. This social media has brought me […]

Sophie’s World #1



Hi there again! I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged anything lately. The reason for sewing absence is that I am not finished with some of the things I want to blog about. Somethings are gift’s that haven’t been given yet, and others are WIPs I can’t seem to finish. I have a lot of plans, but plans don’t seem to fall through when it’s sunny and warm outside. I get super lazy. So far on my list of sewing goals […]

What’s going on Part 1.


I started to sew my own wardrobe in March 2014. I only sewed a couple of things now and then, so when #mmmay15 started last year I was SO proud to participate. I was so proud to be a part of a community that had so much love  and was so including. If you were a beginner or at the advance level it didn’t matter. The love of making was endless. So with the few pieces of clothing I had […]

#mmmay16, thank you for this year.


  MMMAY stands for  Me-Made-May and I’m taking part this year as well! If you want to read what it is all about head on over to Zoe’s blog to see guidelines and pledge as I did! I first took part in this tradition last year. My pledge then was to wear at least three me-made garments per week in the duration of May. This year is two years since I started to sew, so my me-made wardrobe is coming […]

Finally #mmmay is back!



So this month I’ve joined Wendy and Emma on Make-It-Yourself March this year with the hashtag #miymarch16 on Instagram. There were different themes every day and each day you get to post a photo related to that theme. So here is my contribution: So this is it! It was a bit intense to find a related photograph to the theme each day, but I think I managed it quite well if I could say so myself! If you follow me on Instagram […]

Make-It-Yourself March


It’s pretty ambitious, but I will try to keep it up as much as possible. This is the selfish sewing part. Bear with me. Every month there’s a new pattern on the block that has just been released out into the wild, and about every time I want to buy it. That leads to me hoarding patterns. Hoarding and hoarding without having the time or money to actually go through with the project. So this post is actually for me […]

My sewing goals this year!


I haven’t been blogging a lot this summer because it has been crazy with how little time I have to sit on the computer without a guilty conscience because of the fabulous summer weather we’ve been having. Either there’s travels, work, beach or sewing. Very little sewing, but the again i bought my very first serger! A Janome MyLock 644D. In love. It is sew (hehe) beautiful. I tried sewing a Nettie Dress from Closet Case Files, man the serger […]

The summer of 2014



Yesterday, I received the two last patterns that I have not possessed yet from the By Hand London girls. The two remaining was The Victoria Blazer and the Charlotte Skirt, and I’m so exited! I cannot wait to burn my wallet on fabric that I can’t afford! Last week I purchased the Nettie Dress & Bodysuite from Closet Case Files as well! I have watched this pattern for a long time, but have not gotten the courage to try something other then […]
