travel bag

We booked our Christmas trip to Venice and I thought I'd finally get myself the ultimate travel bag... so I started sewing! Lots of pockets, zips, fasterners to keep cameras and the rest safe and organised!

Roll 01

And the challange begins, one roll of film a week for a year, developed and printed by myself in the darkroom. Here's some images from the first roll of the weekend we just spent in Snape at some friends' wedding

A nice day for a walk in the park

Screenprinted cushions

Yes, this is what I spent last night doing (in between some lesson planning...ah holy procrastination!). Anyways, they are available to buy on my newly open etsy shop!

The two sides of the cushion have been printed with different pattents (reveresed pattern). The bottom side is kept together by a well hidden strip of velcro.

Tomatoes in October

Yes, it's true... red tomatoes and it's nearly November! Times are changing...

bird vest

I had some fabric left from the lining of the jacket that I have finished a couple of months ago and it was just enogh to make a vest...and I love vests. No pattern used, just copied the measurements from an old h&m vest.

Chocolate chip cookies

More cookies!
After getting a subtle messege from my housemates (see photo) I simply had to make more cookies! I followed this recipe this time for the best big fat chewy chocolate chip cookies and they are sooooo nice! The only ingredient I changed is the sugar, I used 200g of caster sugar instead of 200g dark brown soft sugar and 100g caster sugar (I simply don't like them too sweet and I didn't have any dark brown soft sugar anyways)... so I kept it simple and it did the trick! I forgot to mention, I have used milk chocolate and white chocolate chips...

The Bungaloo

I just found these fantastic prints by The Bungaloo . Check out his website!

Split fountain

I can't wait to try this technique, I haven't found a real tutorial yet, but it looks pretty straightforward although I bet it's quite tricky to get it right. I found these images on the three steps ahead blog. I also found some other beautiful applications of this technique but I can't remember the link! Oh well...
