Little bag for hair ties and clasps

For my niece I sewed a little bag to carry all the hair ties or clasps. Like almost every little girl she like the Disney movie "Frozen" . Chance brought it about that I had some scraps of the Frozen fabric, so she get this little bag.



I saw such a bag as well on many blogs or on pinterest and now I had sewed it. As a present for little girls I think it is a nice idea.
fabric: Frozen by DaWanda ( I don't know the seller exactly)
size: adjusted to the scrap of fabric
pattern: work menticulousy by me
idea: pinterest
woven ribbon: farbenmix

Batman, Robin and Batgirl

This year I get a phone call from my good sister and she asked me if I can sew some costumes for her kids for Fasching. Her boy wanted to be Batman und her girl wanted to be Batgirl.
Anyway, we had to pick up my boy from his grandparents and so I took the chance and bring my sewing machine. 
My good sister bring some shirts and a few meters of fabric. I kept it very simple, I had only one day to make the kids happy. Very shortly after we arrived at our old homeland I sat on the machine with three prying kids around me. On every shirt I sewed also a cape for the real superhero feeling.

"Batman" and "Batgirl" were very happy with their costumes.

As my son saw the costumes from his cousins he wanted to be "Robin", so I took a red long sleeved shirt, cut of the sleeves and sewed a vest with some applications on it. The cape is fixed with some buttons.

A green long sleeved shirt under the vest and a green pants make the costume complete. For this costume I had more time as a day so I stiched around all details.

#6köpfe12blöcke - QAL - July "Snail's Trail"

The July block from the #6köpfe12blöcke QAL is called "Snail's Trail" and the instructions are presented by Dorthe alias lalalapatchwork.

I had decided that I made my block bi-colored. I took my main blue fabric and add a cappuchino brown fabric.

Look's nice, but I fall in euphoria and I made a mistake... Note to me: RTFM!!

I think I call it the "Snail Fail". Now there was the time for the seam ripper.

And now I'm done! Thanks to Dorthe for the instructions.

"Snail's Trail" instruction: Dorthe from lalala-patchwork
fabric: Buttinette
