    My sewing machine’s gathering dust …
    My scissors have started to rust …
    The pins,they are lonely
    I would use them, if only…
    Nah, eff it! Las Vegas, or bust!

    (Sorry ’bout the language)

    Moving on!

    Vacation is three weeks away!

    (Do you spot a theme?)

    @with-love-heidi – I put up a picture on Flickr of the tee with a link to the Youtube video I used to make the mods.

  • lattemama replied to the topic What are you sewing now? in the forum off topic 3 years ago

    I changed up a Metro tee to have a waterfall neckline last year and I have now made my second one (with a third in the pipe line as I’m still undecided on the colour of the second one).

    I was super pleased with the first version of the waterfall neckline so I didn’t make any changes to it other than cutting a long sleeve but that was because I…[Read more]

    I thought I’d revive this thread – I know some of you are interested.

    Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria gave birth to her second child, a boy, yesterday evening.

    The new little Prince will be named Oscar Carl Olof and has been made Duke of Skåne (Scania, my county actually, yay!) by his grandfather the King.

    The only two persons who were Duke…[Read more]

    Cake flour can apparently be made at home – http://joythebaker.com/2009/09/how-to-make-cake-flour/ from the looks of the directions in the link it’s all-purpouse flour mixed with a bit of cornflour/cornstarch.

    Thanks for posting those recipes and instructions @reeni! I’m bookmarking for reference.

    I haven’t been on the forums much lately so I’m not sure if this is new or if that’s how it always worked.

    ETA: And of course it didn’t do that this time. Ok, then the post I noticed it in was the “What are you sewing…[Read more]

    I finished Sofia’s chocolate biscuit shirt in time for Picture Day and she said all her friends wanted to eat her up when she wore it.

    I have ordered more pink twill to make a new pair of Field Trip pants for her. She loved the old pair so much (as did I) I decided to track down some of that pink twill. It won’t be here for a few more days so I…[Read more]

  • lattemama replied to the topic Flickr troubles? in the forum off topic 4 years ago

    No, but seriously – the speed of a click is not something you can control – you either click or you don’t.

    My guess is Flickr is having server issues and the photos where you can’t comment are on affected servers whereas pictures that work are on healthy servers. Give it a day or two and try again.

    I haven’t sewn much of anything all summer so I decided to ease into it with a simple project of a Field Trip tee for Picture Day on Monday. I used a soft knit fabric with chocolate biscuits on it and she didn’t want to take it off after the first try-on. I had to convince her that knits need hemming too.

    I also need to trace the size 10 Field…[Read more]

  • lattemama replied to the topic Long sleeves? in the forum garden party 4 years ago

    @motherof5 made this with long/longish sleeves on the grey dress with hot pink piping. I’m not sure how she lengthened it but maybe she’ll let us know 🙂

  • lattemama replied to the topic News and Current Affairs in the forum off topic 4 years ago

    The new Swedish princesses got rather unusual names. Estelle was born 3 years ago to the Crown Princess and Leonore last year to princess Madeleine.
    Leonore will become a big sister on June – I wonder what they pick for him/her.
    Oh and June will also see another Royal wedding (the last one for a while now) when Prince Carl Philip weds miss Sofia…[Read more]
