Nun, JEANIE, der Name von Uschis neuem Rock, erinnert mich eher an die “Bezaubernde Jeanie”, eine heißgeliebte Serie in meiner frühen Jugendzeit. Dieser Flaschengeist hatte eher wallende Tüllgewänder um. Uschis JEANIE ist dagegen super sportlich und alltagstauglich.
Mein Mädchen hat ihn sich aus schwarzem Strukturjeans gewünscht und neon Details sind ja IN
Da der Rock mal über einer feinen Leggings, mal aber auch über einer Jeans getragen werden soll,
habe ich in den Bund ein verstellbares Hosengummi eingearbeitet. In diesem Fall Größe XS.
So sitzt der Rock in der rückwärtigen Taille immer schön an und macht eine tolle Figur.
Eine genaue Anleitung findet ihr unter den farbenmix-Anleitungen HIER.
So abwechselungsrecih ist der Rock zu nähen, da folgen ganz sicher zum Frühjahr noch mehrere!
Some of you wanted to know how to gather the leggings, it’s quite simple:
Just attach the buttonhole backing to a piece of old jeans or just sew a regular buttonhole. Attach the piece on the side of the leggins, let the piece end at the hem of the leggins. Sew two tunnels, pull the ribbons through and fix them at the hemline. Finish the leggins as usual.
Very cool if you let the jeans pieces fringe at the sides.
Now the matching shirt:
I chose HILDE , cut out an ornament and stitched it on a piece of jeans. Cut out the jeans and fixed it on the shirt with enough room to let it fringe, too. For the elbow patches I used ovals of the same fabric.

Just place a few 15 cm/ 6 inch long ribbon pieces not to neatly and cover it with a shorter piece of our new owl ribbon.
Fold them around 1 to 3 chains, fan them out a little more and fix them with a few stitches. Shorten them a little if you wish and don’t forget to seal the ends with a pocket lighter.
READY and perfect to embellish clothes or whatever you want.
Perfect for all kinds of tags and pendants.
Quite a lot of you had a sample of our new buttons with their last order.
Those oversized jeans buttons in various colours fit a lot of different styles and are easy to handle: Just put a piece of felt on a hard surface, place the button upside down on it. Drill the little nail through the fabric, place it on the button and use a hammer to fix it.
Easy to use are our new backings of faux leather. Just push it out, stitch it on, zigzag the buttonhole and cut it open. Of course they are perfect for all different kinds of embellishments, not just buttons!
HUUPS! offers this embroidered star buttonhole file as a freebie.
Online at Aug. 5th – enjoy the buttons!
We are preparing for the World Cup, too.
Malina has chosen the soccer team at school and needs a real soccer shirt, because ” everybody has one, Mum!”
I found a leftover shirt of our fabric sale:
I fold shirts on the left side before placing them into the hoop. It prevents the other shirt parts being stitched together.
Malina did keychains for her team.
And a long keychain for Malina’s busticket – READY!
Honestly, I have never been able to crochet neat potholders. I always liked crocheting but they ALWAYS turned out crooked. Maybe I missed a stitch and did one to many – who knows!?
Still I LOVE crocheted potholders and buy them at Dawanda if required.
That’ s why I kept procrastinating the new epattern ( available tomorrow at farbenmix ) by Sanna. She even did wonderful video tutorials meanwhile ( just for me, I guess ) still I didn’t have the guts.
Just because the did a photo tutorial for me, I would have felt shabby not to try.
Well, crocheted it in one evening – but with Sanna’s tutorial – and then sewed it on in 30 minutes:
It is so pretty and fits perfectly. And it was not difficult at all even though I might have lost again a stitch ot two. This is surely not my last top.
Should I try potholders again?
… well, I think buying is less stressful for me… sigh…
The Video-Crocheting tutorials are online for EVERYBODY, even if you don’t want to buy the epattern.
Thank you so much, Sanna!!!
Simple coaster made of felt. The top layer is wool felt, the lower synthetic. In between a ribbon remnant. I used a nice fancy stitch to applique a pretty piece of fabric.
A very easy and quick technique.
