Oh, I am such a stupid seamstress!
I cut pockets from a detail of belt%( Of course I don't have any fabric left.
This will be good lesson for me not to cut during nights.
Hope a shop has this fabric in stock yet.

Spring Sewing Swap 2014

I got my parcel from Tine!! All the way from Hamburg!
It was like getting b-day present!

Tine packed it nice in bright paper, you can see.

Spring Swap parcel

Everything inside was individually packed and Tine added nice postcard! Ups, I planned to find some nice one too but completely forgot%(


Tine sent me 2 pieces of fabric. Lovely viscose with flowers (right now I see it like summer dress) and nice navy cotton (maybe shirt or shirt dress?). Also she added magazine My image from her collection, I didn't have any on my shelf. I think maybe to make a dress from this magazine with the flower fabric? I need to make plan!%))

Also she added some German non-sewing souvenirs - jams, marzipan(already finished%), Bierdeckel (I really don't know the name of these things) and my favorite german lip balm. Oh, I asked Tine if she could add it because this was the best balm for me! She was very nice to do that.

I am very happy with my parcel. I hope my response will arrive very soon in Germany and Tine will like my presents too%) Thanks, Tine as my swap partner and Kestrel as organizer.

What's going on?

The summer is going on so I am slow in my blogging%) Honestly in my sewing too - after Me-Made-May I only have finished already half-done tshirt and refashioned 2 skirts but I have big plans for warm sewing summer and hope I will implement a part of them.

I got a big present from Merche - 4 Patrones magazines with nice patterns, now want to made them all! Ok, not all but many of them%)  I will put something from the magazines in my current sewing list.

I participate in  Spring Sewing Swap 2014 organized by Kestrel Makes. I was paired with Tine from Hamburg. My parcel is somewhere on its trip and will arrive very soon I hope!!

I was thinking to join Summer Stashbust 2014 by Sally but failed just in the begging, eh! But I believe even with this failure I will continue to participate saying that my stashbusting started from 1 July%)) I will post some my sewing plans soon. Also I still should blog some my fresh and old me-made, so a lot of writing and sewing%)

It spoiled my stashbusting!

Now I am in!

0 home outfits, 8 outfits with refashioned garments
6 refashioned garments,  14 totally me-made - 20 in total.

So these are a lot of numbers%))) What do they mean? This year I wear more me-made garments%) There were no home outfits but I would like to make some home trousers and maybe warm hoody or cardi. My favorite clothes element is a skirt, no doubt!

I like Me-Made-May! This was very positive event, I liked to show my garments, to wear nice stuff every day, to make pictures, to get lovely comments and to see outfit all over the world. Yes, near the end of month it became little bit tricky but in any way it was very nice event%)

I didn't manage to finish my 3 UFO only one from my list and fresh one. The butterfly t-shirt still waits its time as brown skirt (I am really not happy with this skirt, yeap).

I decided to put more me-made tops in my sewing list, woven and knit, lets start with summer's ones. Also I want to sew some trousers, shorts and cardi. And I need to make a jacket too! So big plans till next May%))

The last conclusion is that I can remake good patterns. I like to make new patterns but think that repeating is boring but now I changed my mind and suppose good patterns should be made one more time or even two more times!
