*petit macaron

i made two new little dresses for the Petits during christmas holidays,
available in the shop.

I could reuse the green fabric again. Now, there is only a little scratch of it left.
I am happy i could use it for some good projects, but i am also glad i don´t have much more left. Unfortunately i have to say,it was a difficult colour and fabric to use.

The second dress looks so much like Christmas, although this wasn´t my intention at all.
there are actually lots of little cute goldfishes printed on the fabric, but all the gold and green and
red colours make it look like a little christmas tree. i will store this fabric until next year Christmas season i guess ^_^

Currently i am working on a spring edition on Blythe clothes and i am trying out a few new patterns. I am sitting on the sewing machine night and day since christmas and i have so many ideas, but still, the holidays seem to be too short...

Dienstag, 22. Dezember 2009

crazy day today. we had our typical bavarian weather phenomenon called Foen, which makes customers go crazy. All have been unfriendly and in a rush. but my boss catched a bad bad flue so i went to work straight after uni until the late evening. i am so exhausted by now, just want to fall into my bed and sleep. but my room is a total mess...! And i would hate the feeling that i have not been able to do anything in my free time than sleeping?

ハッピータイム: i got a phone call from a dear friend of mine. we didn´t have much contact the last 2 years, mostly because i am a succer in keeping contact via email. But it really made my day to be able to talk to her again!


I just found some old pictures of *Marie Antoinette. There´s always this sweet and soft expression in her face wich i love so much on Pullips.

music: ok, this is somehow cute.... and i love the song... so..

*a little bit of love and WIP

Hello everybody,

today was really cold outside. Although just about one week ago it was so warm outside that the flowers started to bloom again, the winter came over us all of a sudden last weekend. Now fields and streets are covered with snow and you can see your breeth while beeing outside.

I used the cold days to finally get back to my own sewing machine. what came out is this little pouch. It is made from a really beautiful antique dark linen fabric with blue stripes. i added some lace and button for the cuteness and even embroidered a little heart on it.
It remembers me of the Shabby Chic or Country style . the inside fabric is a cute polka-dots cotton print fabric from Japan.

It has been added to the shop as well as the below two projects which i already made a while ago but always missed to update them. Hope you like them!
It´s a set of 3 crochet doilies in beautiful snowflake colours and a set of four coasters for the table.

Last, but not least, two ongoing projects. i made one of these flower pincussions which are always beautiful and you might have recognized the little embroidery piece below. It´s already finished by now but i still have to decide what project i will use it for. Curious now? ^_^


music: a little MV from Youtoube of one of my favorite romantic movies ever!

*Princess for one day...

It´s been some time since the last update.
Mr. P and i spent some wonderful days together the last two month and been busy with visiting friends and rediscovering nearbye places.
But i have not been lazy or forgot about my tiny girls ,).
Two new dresses are in the shop:

I specially like how the crochet piece came out. it´s so tiny and really cute. i plan to make another one for my own girls and also to crochet some for my ACB Florentine. She should look darling in it too! :D


No music video today, but instead a link to the trailer for Avatar the Movie - Aufbruch nach Pandora
i can´t wait to see it in theatre!

This is a sweet little dress set for your Petit Blythe dolls in pretty autumn colour.

*october days

I have been quite absent this month from internet. university holidays come to an end and Mr. P and i tried to spent some time together before summer ends and we both will be busy again.
Of course we didn´t miss the Oktoberfest 2009. We even managed to get a place inside the Hippodrom, one of the most popular (and expensive) beer tents. Great time, great music, lot´s of fun!
The time we spent in Munich we also did some sightseeings to the small cities around like Freising, Rosenheim, Bad Aibling... and climbed the Wendelstein. We just tried to spent some happy and filled out days together meeting up with friends or taking short excursions.

i don´t have much pictures to share for you this time cuz i have a new photographing toy.
My new Diana Mini. She´s the small version of the lomography camera Diana F+. I am very excited to get the first film developed.

Me and my girls wish you all happy late october days and a great & fun Halloween time!

music: Donikkl - So a schöner Tag/Fliegerlied (just a fun song)

Sah ein Knab' ein Röslein stehn,
Röslein auf der Heiden,
war so jung und morgenschön,
lief er schnell, es nah zu sehn,
sah's mit vielen Freuden.
Röslein, Röslein, Röslein rot,
Röslein auf der Heiden.

just updated this brand new dress set for Petit Blythes.
i used high quality cotton fabric with a beautiful diamond pattern
for the bottom part and white cotton covered with lace for
the top part. a cute little ribbon is there for the extra touch of cuteness.
i just love how the little hairband/scarf came out.
made the pattern up by myself and added some ribbon and
beads to it.
Next time i will try to vary and play a little bit with the pattern,
it´s just so much fun to make :D
