Them pockets.

Name:  Harris / Hubert / Hamish (Princess Meridas brothers, Brave) Pattern: Oslo cardigan from Seamwork Fabric: Various of knits from the scrap pile in Stoff og Stil So you know I’m the pocket queen.

When you then need to reach for something you have […]


My sewing goals this year!

Hoarding and hoarding without having the time or money to actually go through with the project. So this post is actually for me […]
