She tie-dyed this T-Shirt herself at summer camp. And she also made the necklace there. The bracelets we made at home this weekend (following this nice tutorial). Tomorrow we have to make another one for her ankle, she's decided.
I like the fact that in this day and age she thinks of making something she likes. Buying it doesn't occur to her yet. As if everyone made their own clothes and jewellery.
The plan was to have some time on my own and make her a dress she can wear to a wedding.
But she wanted to help and make a dress as well - for her princess (do you remember her?). I just about managed to draft a pattern before I had to give in and concentrate on what was really important.
And we took it very seriously. The princess was measured and drawn, we made a pattern and a roughly sewn prototype. The final dress will of course have to be pink with flowers - as you see in the original design. Fabric shopping will have to be next.
How sweet is that? Annemie sent me a pattern I would really like to sew.
I'm a mother of 2 living in Barcelona. In this space I try to disconnect from the 'locura del día a día' and just pretend I've got all the time in the world to make clothes, take pictures and admire the little details of everyday life.
