Today I do fashion blogging

Hi, I'm home alone over the weekend while my boyfriend is in Austria skiing. I'm going to make a lot of stuff, but right now I just can't get this dress out of my head.

It's on sale, but still ULTRA expensive and I doubt I can make it myself (I can't, actually) and it's just so wonderful. Oh, the pain. It's so ME. I could live in this dress.

On my to do-list for today: tiny pants, tiny sleeping bag, rabbit rattle. And cleaning.
And probably compensating not-buying-wonderful-dress with making-less-wonderful-dress-myself-and-end-up-disappointed.

floating fish

Today I cut some circles out of brown felt to serve as heat protectors for my table.
I sometimes feel I should do something a little more ambitious with my time.

Look at this, for example. So amazingly poetic.

Pimping a stoller

Hi, I'm back from celebrating Christmas holidays and now I'm working like crazy and on top of that very pregnant. So I'm not making a lot these days.

Well, I made something. Saturday I made a new hood for my baby stroller out of this fabric. I secretly loved it for years but didn't find a good use for it until now.

Result was even better than expected: When you look inside, and when it's bright outside, the light shines through the fabric (it's double layered, outside and inside) and the light creates a sort of shade-under-a-tree-effect that I hope the baby will appreciate. At least babies are supposed to like strong contrasts like black and white. That one is covered.
Anarchistic as I am, I also love that it's not a lame baby pastel stroller and that it doesn't reveal the gender of my baby. Which will make someone irritated, for sure.

I wish I could show you the actual hood with the fabric on it, but on Saturday my camera broke. So I can't yet.
I feel so sorry for the camera, computer is still working but the lens can't focus. So It's useless, I have to get rid of it, and it feels like when shooting a horse just because it broke a leg. The poor camera really wants to take photos - it tries so hard to focus and the engine squeaks and screams - but it just can't anymore. I feel so bad discarding it, like I'm some nazi who doesn't tolerate weakness around me.
There is some religion that believes anything has a soul. I recently realized that I have kind of strong tendencies towards that one.

Anyway. So the rest of the stroller will probably be covered in linen. Rain-proof linen, that is. And with some more foxes and berries here and there. I'll keep you informed of the progress. Perhaps next weekend.
