Handmade Felt Baby Shoes and Other Pretty Things

Hand Appliqued bag June 2, 2010

Filed under: accessories — maitas @ 10:21 am

I did this for Maia yesterday..I think she liked it, I’m not really up to princesses so I guess it wasn’t perfect!

It’s to put her 5pm after school snack in. Hmm, looks like it’s a big snack! Maybe it could be a shoe bag, or a general bits bag going by how she loves to collect things and stash them away someplace secret…

Rockerbilly May 25, 2010

Well, this is what I have been doing recently…more of the gingham crochet clips of course which have been a real hit, and some other 50’s inspired items. Mujer is going to the Rockerbilly festival in Pineda de Mar next week and asked for for some things she could take along. So here we have some vintage material used to make kiddies headscarves(after a big battle with my sewing machine), some new alice bands and some new gingham clip and hairband combo’s. I’m pretty pleased with how everything turned out, let’s hope that she manages to sell them!

La semana que viene hay una feria de Rockerbilly en Pineda de Mar, aqui hay unas cosas que he hecho para la tienda Mujer quien va estar alli unos 4 dias…un poco de vichy alquien?!

Chocolate party spoons

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 9:30 am

OMG!!! I have to make these for Maia’s 4th birthday party coming up soon….how cool do they look…mmm yum!!!!

And the best thing is that it is that they are soooo incredibly easy to make which is always helpful, although not sure how long they’ll last in the Mediterranean doubt they’ll get eaten before they have the chance to melt!

Hay que mirar estas cucharaditas de chocolate para fiestas, son la cosa mas mona y dulce, naturalmente!! Voy hacerlas para la  fiesta de cumpleaños de mi hija en breve!

blueboard paint! March 14, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 8:37 pm

I’ve just finished painting the long awaited other side of my daughter’s bedroom, poor thing. I decided to use coloured blackboard paint for half of it and just plain white above. It needs another coat(gotta buy some more) but it’s nice and bright. I think I’ll add some coordinating circles to make with the other side too. I thought this image looked rather pleasing..well to my eye at least! I love the new print I got the other day from Keboniko by Cosas Minimas.

Matching Brooches March 13, 2010

Filed under: accessories — maitas @ 4:53 pm

Am thinking of doing some matching brooches for my clips…even I would wear them I think, they are so pretty and summery. I bought about a million meters of gingham ribbon so I have to do something with it!!!

Estoy pensando hacer unos broches a juego con mis clips…yo los llevaria tambien, son tan bonitos y veraniego. He comprado millones de metros de cinta vichy y tengo que hacer algo con ello!!!
