Hi, my dear readers ♥
After the last year's success at CreativeMesse München (creative fair), we decided to go there again together with Rommily and Kathi ♪
This time we knew what to expect and I was really looking forward to buy some yarn at Tausendschön's stand again... but I ended up being pretty dissapointed about this one - they didn't have all these pretty yarns at all ! It looks like they only took a few leftovers with them (each skein was different colorway) and a wall full of Malabrigo (but that's quite easy to order online and not what I was going for), atop of that their stand was really small so I just looked around and went to look at other stuff ...
What I absolutely didn't expect to buy and get excited about was SEWING BOOK and FABRICS ?! I thought I'm done with sewing, I don't enjoy it as much as I used to - except from upcycling stuff... but - suddenly - while searching for book with hand lettering alphabet, I stumbled upon Hosen nähen - schön, leich, schnell - with 16 sewing patterns, tutorials and videos online for the more complicated designs. Usually I'm not really interested in sewing books, but this one has a lot of loose pants, sweatpants and most importantly LEGGINS pattern, so I had to buy it :)
Also I couldn't leave without fabric, especially with so many stands around selling really cute prints and materials... I went for organic cotton jersey in grey with black dandelion print and light summer fabric in dark blue with... eh dandelions :D
Aside from unexpected fabric shopping I also had to stop by my favourite SommerAbend to buy even more stamps to my already big collection ♥ I got the alphabet book from Frau Annika, potion bottle, cute mori pendant with squirrel and acorn ...and a few gluten-free cookies from the most unfriendly lady at the whole fair ... (but they were delicious!)
Being really excited about all my new sewing stuff, I just had to make the first pair of pants right on the next day ! I started with pattern called "Hose mit Gummibund / Pants with elastic waistband" and used the summer dark blue dandelion fabric, lightbox, papers from my life drawing sketchbook for pattern tracing and various leftovers of elastic bands I could find at home :D
The explanation in the book of how to make each pair of pants is not really clear and you need some experience with sewing pants (which I don't really have, so I freaked out a few times), but somehow I managed to do it and after the whole day of tracing, cutting and sewing I had my very first pair of pants according to my new book ! And I'm super-happy about them ♥
When I finished these pants, temperatures were still below zero and everything was covered in snow... now it's finally warm and love wearing them ♥
I hope you' re all doing fine !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
