Baby Lorenzo’s survival kit

11 Nov

My friend Simona’s sister is due to have a baby very soon and she asked me to make her a diaper stacker for her soon-to-be-born Lorenzo…. Not an easy task since I had never seen one before! Far from being discouraged I looked for informations on the web and I came across few tutorials which weren’t exactly suitable for my sewing skills. So I decided to make myself a project…. it took me at least a couple of hours to complete it!

… and a couple of weeks and a lot of Ikea fabric later… here is the result… I hope she’ll be happy with it:

Chain and Beads Collection

3 Nov

With my latest bracelet I inaugurated a new collection called “Chain and Beads”… here is another bracelet I made this past weekend. It is made with beads and two different sizes of chains.I also added a pink flower-shaped stone bead at the center to give it a girlie twist.

I think it has a strong visual impact….
