Weekend Sewing: Pillows

Hello!How are your winter months going? It’s been raining for ages here and we’re kind of fed up with this weather. Right now is VERY windy, as it can only get here on the tiny island (I don’t mean Ireland in general, I mean the tiny one where we live in). I can’t wait for spring to come and enjoy the light of the longer evenings, at least I’d be able to take better photos of my sewing.I have been sewing quite a lot recently. I made Hana another dress by drafting the pattern from a dress she already has and loves but that will soon be passed on. I had several custom orders as well, baby blankets, bibs… and I only need to cut the fabric for a baby quilt. Pics of all this will come soon, of course…

But this morning… well… I am determined to make my sewing room look prettier and organised, so I finally cut the fabric to make some covers for 3 pillows that I got in IKEA about… 2 years ago??? I know how to make pillow covers, it’s easy, but probably because it’s “that easy” I kept putting it off. I should thank Dana from Made to give me that kick and get that fabric cut. Made is one of the blogs I love following, I learn so much from her tutorials, she makes everything look really easy and I am so inspired after looking at all those great photos she has. Her new series of video tutorials are really good, so after watching the pillow tutorial I remembered I had that fabric and pillows waiting for me.

Hola! Com us va aquest hivern? Aqui no ens para de ploure i ja n’estem ben tips. A mes fa un vent tant fort! Ja tinc ganes de que arribi la primavera, amb la llum i les tardes llargues. Al menys podre fer fotos mes maques del que estic cosint…

He fet bastantes coses. Un vestit nou per la Hana treient el patro d’un vestit que ja te i que li encanta pero que aviat ja no li entrara. Tambe he fet encarrecs, un parell de mantes, pitets i ara em falta tallar la roba per un quilt. Les fotos ja anirant venint!

Pero avui… avui m’he decidit a reemprendre la marxa per millorar el meu taller. Fa mil anys que vaig comprar tela i coixins a l’Ikea per fer unes coixineres. Es facil fer coixineres, pero com que es “tan facil” sempre ho deixava per mes tard. Suposo que he de donar gracies a la Dana de Made per donar-me aquesta patada al cul que necessitava i posar-me mans a l’obra per acabar de fer-les. M’agrada molt seguir el seu blog, aprenc moltissim amb els seu tutorials, sembla tot tan facil! I ara amb els video tutorials que te, encara mes! Despres de veure el dels coixins va ser quan  em vaig recordar dels meus.

  1. M’agrada molt aquesta tela! Quan aabis amb l’habitació de cosir et deixo seguir amb la meva que està en un estat permanent de tifó!

  2. Looks like spring has come early to your sewing room, that fabric is really cheery! Good old Ikea, never disappoints🙂 Thanks for the link to ‘Made’, I’ll go and check it out now! Hope the weather picks up soon, take care Natalie xx

    Oh, que macos!!!! Donen molta alegria, m’encanta la tela que has escollit. Tinc moltes ganes de veure l’habitació acabada. Espero que el temps us millori. Molts petons!

  4. Si aquest es el teu raconet de pensar, segur que se t’acudiran grans idees!! Improvitzar una primavera sobre el sofà ja és una idea prou potent😉 Petons!

    • Gracies!
      Abans el meu espai era una habitacio per a mi sola… pero des que va neixer el numero dos, la vaig haver de cedir i ara he de conformar-me en una habitacio multi-usos… : de convidats, d’estendre roba, i de pas cap al bany… pero es mona😉

    • merci! Vaig vendre mes del que em pensava, perque no tenia gaires expectatives. El meu objectiu era donar-me a coneixer i crec que vaig donar bona impressio!
