First of all, I cut my hair short!!!!! I don’t think it has ever been this short ever since I turned double digits. It has been a bit of an adjustment, even though it’s a long bob cut it’s short. Now I just need to figure out what I can do with it. For this months make I made myself this snuggly knitted dress. I’m on my way of making all the knitted dresses! CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG […]

I finally got around of making myself this pattern. Last time I made it back in 2016, I made too small and gave it away to a friend. This time it fits and it’s water resistent as well!

Ultimate wardrobe staple trousers



Even though the weather here in Trondheim hasn’t seen as much sun as it should have yet this summer, I have been busy making these two blouses to go with it when it decided to show.

The other is close fitted, elastic neckline, princess seams, and zipper closure. CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST Name: Buck (from The Good Dinosaur) […]

If you’ve followed me for a while I’ve made Ginger jeans before and the previous ones have been fine, but there is still fitting issues that made me not wear them regularly. I don’t necissarily know what the fitting issue might be so I’ve been putting it off for years now. This is my recent try on the jeans I’m and happier with this one, but there is still something to be done with the fit. So I’m hoping I’ll […]

Another try at the Ginger jeans


Happy birthday
Happy birthday to me! Today is my 29th birthday and I thought it would be a good time for me to share a bit off myself with you. The topic is about body image, and I’ve been struggling with this lately. I was quite skinny with a high metabolism during high school – ten years ago. 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 my last post for Minerva Craft for this year. With the move to our new house everything will be packed down and stay that way until we’ll get settled.
