why is the time running so fast?
I have so much to do till christmas...argh -.-
Isn't it a coincidence that all of your friends want to make something with you when you haven't seen them in ages? The whole week I was running from one appointment to another. Of course I'm glad to see them all again...but man, why all at once?
And then I have to tell every single one what's going on in my life.
I'm not sure how many times I can repeat myself until I'm going to combust spontaneously... ^^
So, as you might have noticed, I didn't came around to make anything last week. I had really no good enough idea that would have justified an alteration of the shirt.
But I wasn't lazily sitting around all day.
No, I was making christmas preparations =).
I would love to tell you what I'm making for my friends and family, but I don't know who reads my blog and who doesn't, so it's not save to tell. But I'll take pictures and post them after christmas.
It's a lot DIY stuff and I hope I can finish in time.
Tomorrow I'll shop for fabric ^^
And yesterday I made some cookies with my mum. They are sooo tasty!
I don't know what they are called in english, but in german it's Marillenringe.
You cut two cookies the same size and shape, and cut into one of them a smaller hole, put them together like a burger and fill the hole with jam.
I'm no sure whether I have still time to upcycle anything before christmas. But I will definitely sew and crochet and DIY, so don't worry ;-)
Well, I decided which item of clothing I'll upcycle next, and this is it.
It's a shirt my friend Paula gave me once in a swap with the color violet as the theme. She handstitched those tiny little hearts on and I love it,
but it is a bit too short.
So I was thinking, why not add two layers of ruffles at the bottom and make it a dress. But then it might be too heavy and the shirt looses its shape... so maybe I just make a skirt? or two ^^
I'm not decided yet on this issue as well as on another, which is which fabric I'll use. See? I think both look great and both would make wonderfull skirts...but o well, I've untill the end of the week to decide and make this, so I'll just ponder upon this a bit ^^
Btw, the kind of skirt I have in mind is best described here . But with only two ruffles and a bit shorter.
