New teatowel

New teatowel in my shops!
Cowgirl from a vintage photo, printed on natural linen. Natural linen is a more sustainable alternative to cotton. It is actually slightly more eco friendly than organic cotton.
You can find it in my Etsy shop and my Epla shop.

Weekend project

I have bought myself an overlock sewing machine. I had fun this weekend sewing a blouse/dress for my daughter. I made it from a vintage bed linen I have found at a flea market.

Today is my studio day. Moa is home from the nursery today playing and helping me out with the printing.
We are talking about making another dress in several different fabrics that she shall choose.

The pattern for the blouse is bought from Stoff og stil.
I have made a new screen this weekend. It has some old prints like Inger the hen and the cowgirl but also a smaller pouch-perfect version of my sheep and a star. I would love to have a star print on a t-shirt. The star might have turned out to be not so successful, though. So it is possible that it can't be used. I will find out soon...
Have a lovely week!

Old Classics?

While going through my stacks, I came across some old prints. The designs have been rather popular and I've also had requests for them. Especially this first one with sheep. I can't undertsand why I have not found them those times I've been searching. (Of course, if you saw the mess my fabrics are in, I guess you would have understood.) But anyway, these totes are back in my shops. -Just in case you have been looking for them!

I'm having my studio day today, the sun is shining through my windows and we're going to have pancakes for dinner, so it's a good day here!
I hope you'll have a lovely week!

Shop News

I'm still sick so things go very slowly around here. I have loads of time this weekend and had planned to do lots... But here are some new items in my Etsy shop. My totes are popular and I'm happy to have a couple of new ones in my shop.
I hope you'll have a lovely Sunday!

Le Potager

Take a look at this cute little film by Benoit Millot, Le Potager.

LE POTAGER from Benoit MILLOT on Vimeo.

Growing something in your garden or in containers on your balcony is an easy way to make some sustainable food. Having a lawn and mow it frequently is not eco friendly. Why not use a part of it for vegetables or strawberries and use your lawn mowings as mulching and fertilizer?
Growing vegetables can be both easy and difficult, depending on which vegetables you choose. But it's fun and it's a great way to teach your children (and yourself) about how nature works and where food comes from.

I challenge you to grow something edible this year!
Will you?

Custom peony

I've been working on some bibs and a custom order today.
This is a peony pouch for Jill. It is the last of my pink/red peony prints.

I just love... new flower garland from Emma Lamb!

It's so beautiful and so well made!

And I think it goes together well with my Wood & Wool Stool.

A happy week to you!

Great Norwegian designed fabrics!

Lisbeth and Marie, the lovely ladies behind the children's clothing shop, have new and exciting news!
They are launching a brand new line of fabrics in their shop.
The fabrics are designed by Cecilie Ellefsen and are named Jungel, Skyer and Tulipaner. (Jungle, Clouds and Tulips.) They are printed in Sweden, so this is true Scandinavian Design!
There will also be matching knit kits to go with the fabrics.
Isn't this great? I feel so excited about this!
I think it's such a bold and creative thing to do, to make these fabrics.
And personally, I also love that the fabrics are printed relatively locally and that the ethics are taken care of.

If you haven't seen it before, you should take a look at their shop. Lisbeth also sews redesigned children's clothes from vintage fabrics. Like this cute terry dress:

Which fabric is your favorite?

1.1.11 -Happy New Year!

Here are some of the things I made last year. I have just started to use Picasa. It's easy to do fancy things, but I find it very hard to do things exactly the way I want to. I did several attempts on this collage, but I still miss an image in one of the squares. (And the images I deleted are still there...)
Thank you all for everything we shared last year. Thank you for all your lovely comments, your encouragement and for inspiring me so much!

I hope 2011 will be a great year for us all.
Let's go out there and make it an awesome year!
