New dress for sale

After a little holiday I am back behind the sewing machine again. My goal for this week is to make one dress a day. Her are the two first dresses I have made. They are both for sale at epla.no.

Both dresses are made by fabrics found at IKEA in Kristiansand. The fabrics are intended to be curtains, but I find them to be perfect for dresses.

Interior DIY: pin board update

A large pin board is good to have in your sewing room or anywhere else for that matter. I found a large pin board at our cabin i wished to update. I started with painting it white all over. Then I used some left over wallpaper in the pin board. This way the pin board is lovely both with or without pins on it.

I pin some old summer photos on the pin board because it is for my summer house.

Update interior: Pastel Pink Dresser

Lets face it, the world is a little bit better in pink! I have renovated my room in your summer house in Arendal the past week. We only used old furniture from the house that we repainted. I wanted one signature item in the room and choose the dresser. I in really into pastels and made it pastel pink.

The surprising thing is that everybody loves it, even the guys in the family. Lets hope that this is rally how they feel 😉
