Perfume Bottles

Today I would like to show you
my cute perfume bottles

They are so much fun to make!
How about the grey quilt?
I love the colour, it will look so nice with 
my lace and pink silk bed-throw.

These days I have many requests to make 
fancy baby-wraps.
All cotton with a little bit of lace..

Next on the list were a few cushions..

and some tissue boxes.


On this cushion I used a vintage doily.
I love the lace on the edge, it has the perfect 
shade of pink.

I hope you have a lovely week.

I am still here..

I haven't tiptoed away..
I'm still here, very quiet I know..
but work has been going on in a very fast pace..

I can hardly keep up with my orders,
so now we ( my daughter and I) are opening 
our very own warehouse/ shop/ workshop..
I am so excited about that!

I have been stitching and crafting for at least
twenty years and I have outgrown my 
spare bedroom a long time ago..

I am hoping it will all come together 
in two months time, yay!!
fingers crossed..

These Moses baskets are still one of my 

I found this new lace to pull ribbon through,
it gives such a nice finish.

Not to forget a matching baby nest.

I hope you have a lovely week.

Happy Autumn, please visit 
Nelly to enjoy the 
smells of autumn in the forest.

French Lace and Roses

Today I used the prettiest floral cotton 
for the inside of the baby pouch.
I love the result!

So sweet and romantic..

For the blue pouch I used French lace 
on the front panel.

I hope your week is going great.

Embossed Silk

Today I finished covering this 
sweet Moses basket with embossed silk material.

I used off white for the colour 
and it has three layers of lace.

Here you can see the embossed flowers in the silk.
I am always on the lookout for new materials,
and Dubai has a great choice..

Next on my list was a feeding-cover.
The little flower can be moved to the right or left side.
Just a little reminder on which side the baby's feeding started.

I had a few requests to make a 
baby swaddle..
About one square meter of soft, light cotton
with a small panel of lace for decoration.

I used French lace for the background
and some cotton trimmings.

I love the way it turned out...

I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine..

Little Crown Favours

Today I added a few more favours to my website
These past few months have been great for my business,
I have a friend who was kind to advertise my work on Instagram
and since then my phone hasn't stopped ringing..

Thanks to the great response, I am now thinking of 
moving out of the spare bedroom, where I do all my sewing
and start a small shop.
Maybe in a few months time..

My head is bursting with so many different ideas,
I wish there was an external drive for that,
click and save it for later..

Aren't these crowns cute!
They can be used as wedding favours and for 

The baby pouches are still my best sellers,
and they are requested in all colours.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Two Linen Moses Baskets

This week I finished a few consignments,
first a Moses basket covered with crisp linen and 
a blue silk double bow.

The second Moses basket is also covered with linen
and has gold silk bows..

I tried out some different ways to cover the 
boudoir seat, this time I used lace for the skirt.

The material I used on the seat was bought 
in France, I wish I brought back more..
We usually travel to France with light suitcases
and return with the maximum weight allowed.
We stuff the cabin-luggage to the max including handbags..
I wish that the airlines gave us credit weight and agree to add
 weight balance that we don't use
 on the flight to France to our weight allowance 
on the flight back..
I'll have a word with them...

I love the way these roses wilted, sweet pink
with an edge of gold..

The next consignment was an army of 
baby-shower favours.
Cute little baby prams for chocolates.
They are going all the way to Saudi-Arabia..

All ready to be shipped.

Just showing off my pretty lace covers,
I bought last time at auctions.

I hope you have a wonderful week.
