Brokade genser update

You know the brokade genser in my WIP list? I handed it over to my MIL to finish it... I have worked on it for about 8 years and it's not coming together fast enough... MIL has a broken ankle and can't do much else but sit and knit, so I asked her if she could finish it for me and she agreed :)

I'll post a picture of her progress after the weekend, when I have visited them.


I'm sewing again!! For the last few days I have actually spent some time with my sewing machines, and you can see the result below!

Sunday night I finally gor around to making pillow covers for Camilla. She ordered them several months ago, but life got in between... And now they're finished! 5 plain beige covers for 28x28 inch pillows. No photo of them, they were too plain.

Monday night I sewed a pair of pyjama pants for my son, the first time I used a serger for elastic fabric! Earlier I have only sewed bags and pillows on the serger. I'm rellay pleased with the result, and the pattern worked great! I haven't tried them on him yet, but I'm sure they'll fit. I was so pleased with the result that I have bought a pale blue linen fabric to make him a pair of summer pants! Just need to wash the fabric first.

Tonight I made a small zippered pouch, I don't really know what to use it for, but it was nice to create something... The fabric is Moda, and the size is appr. 5x5 inches.
