Have a nice weekend!

Yesterday I added a new zippered pouch to my shop - a dark brown canvas base with emerald green and raspberry pink silk patches, decorated with matching trims. 



I wanted to list another purse but the day got too short as I decided at the last minute to make a small girl tote as a present to my friend's daughter. I used my favourite Ikea striped canvas and lined it with whimsical colourful print of lobsters and fruit - what else!




I wish you a great weekend,
See you soon!

My Day Monday

It has been a while since I posted my Monday Etsy favourites - time to start the weekly post again!

LEAVES




And the reason for picking the leaves theme is that after a long sewing pause I am finally adding something new to my shop: a zippered purse in cream canvas with stripes and leaves. I have a couple more cut out & waiting, I hope to add them tomorrow.




Have a great start of the new week!

A quick transformation

There was not much time for sewing this past week but I did manage to make a little alteration on Lily's hat. Since I can't crochet or knit, I found her a simple, warm fleece hat in muted purple.

The store bought hat had tassels on long strings and since preschool doesn't like clothing with strings hanging around children's necks for risk of injury on the playground, I decided to cut both tassels off, sew them on the top of the hat and decorate the sides with two little fabric flowers I happened to have in stock...

New home

After watching my husband play with iPhone application Instagram for the last five months and getting more and more hooked, I too started discovering this new platform for sharing images. The standard square format of photographs makes one pay more attention to composition of the pictures and application's many filters make it fun to change the mood, contrast and feel of each image. 



I downloaded some of my Etsy shop photos and cropped them through Instagram lense, which gave them a new, artistic look I like very much. Since I also like to take pictures of nature and all things that inspire me, it is now interesting to see all these images together on my Instagram account. 
You may find my pictures under username Loddelina or, if you don't use Instagram click on this link
Publishing pictures on Instagram also allows me to simultaniously post them on my facebook and twitter accounts. So many homes, so little time...

November news

As promised I have added four new iPhone sleeves to my shop - two with cheerful stripes and two in dark wool with embroidery.
These slim cases fit iPhone 4 and 4S perfectly so no velcro or magnetic closures are necessary. Cozies are lined with soft wool cloth or cotton corduroy and have no raw seams. Other sizes are available upon request.
