Mary´s Summer Purse!

Hey! This is a special post for my friend Mary! She had this nice silk top but didn´t like the style anymore. So she asked me if I can make a summer purse for her out of it! She bought a nice leather belt to use as the strap. Enjoy your new purse girl!! 







Hey there! Sorry, I haven´t posted anything in soooo long!!!! I was travelling quite a bit. Germany, Switzerland, Mexico… lucky me!

I saw this little “do-it-yourself” project on Pinterest this morning. It´s something fun and easy to do with your kids. Or even for yourself, if you have some really nice buttons sitting in a drawer at home you always wanted to use somehow…

The Favorite!

Hey there! Today I finished a little project for my friend Jan. He has this ADIDAS jacket that he loves, loves, loves! Unfortunately his dryer totally killed it the other day and he asked me if I can make something out of it! To keep it alive somehow. Sure I can! I  got rid of the burned spots, cut his favorite jacket in a million pieces and sewed  an Adidas computer bag for him. To add a bit of texture I stuffed the fabric with cotton. I hope Jan will like it. Boy, he better!!! By the way – Jan is a great cinematographer, check out his work:

Books Go Denim!

Hey! I have this funny looking calendar. It has all these dogs on the cover. Really??? Are there people out there who love that shit? NOT acceptable! Well, to cover the dogs I sewed a denim book cover today! I used an old pair of jeans. Took me 15 minutes. Done! Super easy. Check it out!

The Notebook

Hello! I wanted to show you my little notebook I carry around with me all day! Whenever I see something I adore, something that inspires me or even if I just need to remember an address or the name of a restaurant – everything goes in this little book! I like to collect stuff my eye catches…

Winter Days In New York City

Hey there! I haven´t posted anything in a long time… sorry about that! But I had my mom visiting me and we spent some days in New York. I love the city and it´s so easy to get there from Toronto! The city wasn´t crazy busy – which I liked actually. Cold winter days with lots of sunshine – New York showed us it´s prettiest face!

Table Mats

Hey there! Have you ever knitted something out of parcel string (in german: Paketschnur)? I haven´t, but my mom is in Toronto to visit and she made something pretty cool out of it: Little table mats!! What do you think? Well, you better have a stylish home though, to have a nice contrast, otherwise it might give your kitchen a little “eco” touch… But hey, isn´t eco a style by itself anyways? Whatever, I like the little mat!!!

Simply Gold

Hey there! I found some great DIY ideas on PINTEREST the other day. A shiny “Goldmarie”- bracelet made out of nuts (german: Muttern) and a simple drawstring. You don´t have to go to a jewelry store, just jump into the next HOME DEPOT and get started. Or check out your toolbox at home – you might even have everything you need in there. So get the string in any color you like, gold or silver nuts, and braid yourself a bling-bling-bracelet for less than 5 bucks!!! It´s a little edgy – what makes it even better! Have fun!

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Today is the first day of a beautiful new year. Welcome 2012!!! I wish you all a great start and that all your dreams and wishes come true! Cheers…
