Cuddly blanket

Hello friends!

Today I made the cuddly blanket I told you some days ago. Here you find the original instruction in german.
First I sewed the ribbons on one piece of fabric.

 I sewed a label on the other piece of fabric and added some interface.
 Then i added the plastic foil and sewed both pieces right sides together. I turned it inside out and closed the opening. This is the result.

I´d like to take part on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Chill. Because this is a toy for kids to help them chill out.
I hope my good friend will like it...
This toy was really easy to make. Go - make your own.

Hey everyone....

some days ago my order with some ribbons arrived. Now i have everything to sew such a cute little " cuddly blanket" I showed you last week.These are the ribbons I got:

cute elephants
 people and animals
 Red with white dots
 thick cord and elastic cord

and the ones I already had

little pandas 
 crazy bunny
 blue fox

I will use every ribbon exept the monsters, the bambi and the fox.
The pictures show the fabrics I will use, too.
For the pacifier/binky holder I still need the clip and the adapter, so i can´t sew it now.
The pieces, I ordered via Amazon, ship from Hongkong... So it will take some time to get them.

today I want to share a card with you. After a loooong time I take part again at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme is: square.
For this theme I used my new thin dies to cut the square. Its a baby card.
I embossed the blue background paper. I used a small piece of vintage seam binding and some Prima say it in crystals. The square cut paper is from the new paper packs i bought on friday.

new fabrics


As i want to start sewing i ordered some fabrics. My first project will be a binky holder and a
toy like this:

I don´t know what it is called in english....
It has some crackle/crinkle plastic foil inside.
It will be for a friend. She expects her first child.
Therefor i ordered some light and bright fabrics that are good for boys and girls, cause we don´t know what it will be yet.

I am still waiting for an order and then i can start...I hope I will not fail at it...

Big craft haul...

Hello friends

Today I am back with a huge craft haul. Warning: picture heavy!
I was in a shopping mall yesterday to go for our weekly grocery shopping trip.
I was looking for a new jacket too. As I was going through the mall I thought it can´t be wrong to visit the "Tedi-Shop" (It´s kind of a Dollar-store here in Germany). And guess what...
I found sooooooo many cute craft supplies there. So everybody in Germany - go to Tedi!
Here are my treasures:

A small bottle with about 20 buttons.
 Cute lables. I want to start sewing so i had to take these. In other shops they cost so much more
 Some ribbons with vintage motifs
 ZickZack ribbons
 more ribbons
2 packs of washi tape

And now for the paper packs. The size is 14.8x21 cm. It is only printed on one side. And as you can see there are 8 designs. Every design you get 4 times.


The following packs are bigger in size. they are 15x30 cm(~6"x12"). I bought 3.

And now 30,5x30,5cm(12"x12"). First there is a pack with solid colors.

 followed by 4 design paper packs. Every pack has 24 different designs. they are double sided so you get every design 2 times.

last there are the small 15x15cm(6"x6") packs.

That was my craft haul. If you like what you see go to Tedi and get your own. :-)
