Solufleece

Some projects work out better than others and this is one of them (that's why the picture is from a little bit further away :)) I tried to make this sewing machine pin cushion, which turned out quite okay. Do really like the little yarnspool on top! The reason I did want to blog about it, is solufleece. Solufleece is a water soluble fabric. So you can draw anything on it, attach it to your fabric and embroider the drawing onto the fabric. Then put it in hot or cold water and the solufleece disappears! Now leaving only your nice embroidered, in my case flower (which I should of embroidered in pink or orange because you can't see it)!

Birdhouse





The temperature dropped significantly this week so we started to think about feeding the birds again. I saw this birdhouse in a magazine and my boyfriend recreated it in a couple of hours! He used leftover pieces of wood that were overcrowding our small shed. I added a sketch to give you an idea of the measurements.
