Know who your friends are


I made this for my sister on her birthday. It’s a pillowcase with printed cross stitches in grey and white, on this I embroidered the text in pink that translates to “I’m always on your side”

I like how it makes me think of the old fashioned embroidered wall decorations with encouraging text that were still quite common in Sweden when I grew up.

Lovisa’s dress

I’m off to see a tiny girl today. Kinda worried she’ll be even tinier than the dress I made for her (yep, no pattern, just something altered…) I like how it came out though. Made one shoulder open with buttons so it’s easier to put on. If it doesn’t fit she can always grow into it. or I’ll make another one


More purple

More purple

This is another of my early outfits. I wanted this one more sober, there are purple sequins sewn on to it that will shine when the light hits them, though.
I made the bra from an old one that fitted really well but I replaced all stretch parts with sturdy cotton. The skirt was made from a rectangular piece of cloth that I more or less sew on to my hips, it’s open in the side. The material is a stretch velvet so it works really well to dance in, The bra is covered in the same fabric.
