My sisters birthday

It's my sister's birthday tomorrow and I have made her this metal frame purse. It's not as risky as you might think to put this photo on my blog cause she doesn't spend much time in front of the pc. And now she's on holiday, so, unlike me, who's quite addicted, she won't come near one now.

It is the first time I've tried to make a frame purse. It's made with one of my own printed, recycled fabrics. I bought the frame from U-handbag. Great service, quick shipping!

My daughter, Moa, took this photo of some of her favorite objects. The lovely plastic tiara, the dolls towel and her baby blanket.

Things to do in summer if it's raining...

You can buy this knitting pattern for a reusable produce bag from FickleKnitter, and knit yourself a bag. The pattern comes as a PDF file. FickleKnitter is one of my fellow members of Team Ecoetsy. Here's the link to Team Ecoetsy's blog with lots of great tips for a more sustainable living.
Go for a walk in the woods, pick some blueberries and make blueberry muffins. Recipe here.

Or you could go shopping with my purple sheep tote.

New t-shirt shop

I have opened a new Etsy-shop, Unni Strand. In this shop I will sell really sustainable t-shirts. The first t-shirts are upcycled, used t-shirts bought from charity shops with my screenprints on. Later I hope to have organically grown t-shirts too.

I'm so happy because my bag has been featured on the frontpage of Etsy today!

And even better, jodii has written about my work in the really great jodii-blog!

She blogs about everything handmade from Europe. Here's a link to her Etsy-shop.

Cool napkins by jodii!

Something new

I've printed some t-shirts and will try them in my Etsy-shop. I have also been doing some research for ecological t-shirts and found a really good, Norwegian retailer.
So, what do you think? Should I do more of this?

My daughter, Moa, brought me these lovely starry flowers.

My students gave me hydrangeas. Last year I had a class of only eight girls. They are the loveliest girls you can find. A good year it was!

I have picked lavender and hung it to dry in my studio. They will shrink when they dry up and I wouldn't be surprised if I only get enough for one bag or two...
