Seaside Tilda...

Dear blog, I could finally finish my Seaside Tilda doll from Tone Finnager's book Sommerliv... yes that's the Norweign version of her book and had to translate it first! Pfff that was not easy I can tell you, haha... but things worked out in the end. Of course I used the translating machine on my computer, but for some reason the translating machine doesn't recognize some words even when you writting down the correct words as they were written in Tone's book!? Anyways these dools are easy to make when you made a few.... only her sailor jacket was pretty difficult and I had to get some help from my mom ; ) She made clothes in the past, so she had a pretty good idea of how to make the jacket..... and instead of a sailor jacket I made a trendcoat.... this way it's a bit different then the rest : )
In the book Seaside Tilda is carrying a little sailor boat, but I thought why not give her a little whale for a friend.... so I did and now they can be together for ever, hihi ; ) Ok enough talking.... here are the pictures

much love Corianne

Pimping a small ironing board....

Dear blog... about a week ago I went to a second hand store
to buy a small ironing board (mouwplankje)
I wanted a small ironing board (mouwplankje) for a long time now,
because it would make ironing of the little Tilda clothes so much easier!

This time they had a small ironing board (mouwplankje) but with a horrible and ugly cover, hahaha.... so to the sewing machine and start pimping!

I wanted a fun, cute and cheerful cover....
and then I remembered my conversation with Eline Pellinkhof,
about the fabrics they used in her new Eline's Buitenhuis book :)

Brilliant!! this one is just perfect....

.... so I ordered the fabric at Elly's store and started sewing ;)
And after a long afternoon measuring, cutting and sewing... is this the end result!

It looks a million times better...... if I may sy so myself, haha ;)

And last but not least....
a few of the cards I bought from the new Eline Pellinkhof range

Thanks for visiting my blog.... more coming soon!
