Hi Fauve, try a magazine with simple patterns. This will help you a lot because did some when the boys were little. Knippie is one mag but there are others too. Hope you get something done and show it please when you have.

Oh, I'm not a big help here! Bought a sewing machine for scrapping... no kidding. And that's all I use it for! Good luck :)

Love your fabrics. An if you're looking for some nice and easy projects try this book: Bend the rules sewing by Amy Karol. There are some really easy and fun projects in there. You can buy it at bol.com. You should surf amazon.com to see some of the contents!

Eeffie said...

Oh, and could you pleeeeeeease give me the ebay-seller, 'cause I'd love to get my hands on those!

Iris said...

ooh wat een gave stofjes! Helaas kan ik je geen tips geven. Heb hier een naaimachine staan die ik zelf nog uit moet vogelen!

Fijn weekend,

Yes, the projects are really easy, but they look amazing. It's all just pretty straight sewing, but the results are so cool. I'm a beginner too, but this book is just amazing.

I'd like to join the SIStv crop, but I couldn't find it on the site. Or do your mean the challenges?

They are very very very cute! :)

Je@net said...

Stofjes zijn super Fauve, helemaal leuk!
Maar verder.....euh....gebruik de naaimachien alleen nog maar om wat rechte stik- of zigzagsteken op een lo of kaart te zetten. That's it ;-)

I love the fabrics, is that 'flanel'?

I couldn't help noticing the talk about the SIStv get together... I got pm'd by several Dutch SISters about it too... too bad I can't make it!
