Silly pants :D

Today I made these silly pants for my 2 year old son. He LOVES them! So proud of his new pants, and especially the big pocket! :D

I'm going to sew elastic bands at the bottom of the legs, I just have to buy the elastics first.

The elephant is a pattern from a norwegian crafts magazine from 1978! (Alt om Håndarbeide nr 1, september 1978.) :D I ♥ retro! :D

I didn't have any sewing pattern or instructions, I just drew a pattern from a pair of pants he fits at the moment. This is the first pair of pants I've made, so I'm happy with the way they turned out. :)

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend! :)

Lenge siden sist!

Huff, over en mnd siden jeg har postet noe her! På tide å oppdatere litt! Tror jeg tar denne posten på norsk. :)

Var med på en utfordring på om å male stempeltrykk, og jeg var så heldig å vinne! Fikk en flott premie, så da lagde jeg et takkekort og sendte avgårde.

Jeg har først stemplet det lille treet på et ensfarget mønsterark fra Basic Grey, og stemplet rundinger i forskjellige grønnfarger oppå, og tegnet prikker rundt noen med brun Promarker. Treet er fra Purple Onion Designs.
Hovedmotivet er fra Forest Friends plata fra The Greeting Farm. ♥
Har i tillegg brukt filtblomster og filtbokstaver, cookie cutter dies fra QuicKutz og bølgepapp. Hovedmotivet er fargelagt med Promarkers.

Nå har jeg funnet fram symaskinen og sydd meg en veske, og kjøpt meg strikkepinner og begynt å strikke
Blir spennende å se resultatet, siden jeg aldri har strikket etter mønster før! :P

Et lite glimt at veska mi:

Den er sydd av brun cordfløyel, etter eget mønster.

Ugla er også egendesignet. :P

Vel, det var alt for denne gang. Takk for at du tok turen innom bloggen min! :)

New Anya card ♥

I've made a new card using my Miss Anya stamp. ♥

I painted Miss Anya with Distress reinkers.
The tag is stamped with an ornamental stamp from Panduro and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then painted it with some pink paint. When the paint was dry, I added some distress ink around the edges.

The text "Til konfirmanten" is from Kort i hodet.

On the inside I made a small pocket to put money in. The text on the pocket is from Kreativ Hobby. The lovely lace is from Papirloftet. ♥
I used a stamp from Fancy Pants to make the heat embossing behind the pocket.

Thanks for looking! :)

I wish I could stay up all night, creating more, but I guess my family wouldn't be too happy if I sleep all day tomorrow. ;P
