Little Forest fabrics are available!


Last week 'the Little Forest fabrics' from Lillestoff arrived. I'm so happy with the quality and colors! It's amazing. These jersey fabrics are made of organic cotton and 5% elasthan. The mushrooms, brown forest, little forest and ribbons are all available in my shop and for international buyers on Etsy.




For my little girl Leonora i sewed a jacket with the forest fabrics. The outside i made off ribcord fabric and added a fleece layer that i ironed on. The pattern for the jacket i found in Ottobre autumn 4/2010. (the mittens and beanie i made with my own pattern) It was a so special to make this for Leonora. A year ago i designed these patterns to decorate her room...and now she's a one year old wearing a jacket with the same patterns :D

Christmas cards and fabric

Mijn kerstkaarten zijn binnen! Ik ben er erg blij mee. Ze zijn gedrukt op 300 grams FSC natuurkarton en worden geleverd met witte envelop. In de binnenkant staat de tekst 'merry christmas and a happy new year' De kerstkaarten zijn te koop in mijn shop. En om dit te vieren reken ik deze week (t/m zondag 20 november 2011) geen verzendkosten op alle artikelen in heel europa!

Als je het kerstballen patroon op de achterkant van de kaarten leuk vind. Deze is te koop op spoonflower als stof! Leuk als kerstjurkje, wanten/mutsen of om je cadeautjes mee in te pakken!


My new christmas cards arrived this week. I am very pleased! The cards are printed on FSC environment friendly paper. Inside text is 'merry christmas and a happy new year'.
To celebrate this i desided to calculate no shiping costs in my shop for the Netherlands and Europe.
If you're interrested and you live outside of Europe. Please visit my etsy shop.

And if you like the christmas balls pattern on the back of the cards. This is available as fabric on spoonflower. Nice to wrap your presents with it.

Sint boekjes voor HEMA

  



Hooray! I finally see the result of these little books! Made by me during summer :D The 'Sinterklaas' character already existed; so i had to make te books with this character. It was a great job to do, because it's for a big Dutch shop 'Hema'. So they will make a lot of Dutch children happy...i hope!
Unfortunately my name is not on the book :( ...but now you know who made these illustrations.

Joepie! Daar zijn ze dan de Hema sinterklaasboekjes...door mij getekend afgelopen voorjaar/zomer toen het heel mooi weer was :D Het sintfiguurtje was al ontwikkeld door Hema. De opdracht was dan ook het boekje in deze stijl verder te maken. Aangezien de stijl erg aansluit op mijn stijl was dat niet zo'n probleem. Ik ben erg blij met het resultaat...alleen stiekem toch een beetje verdrietig dat mijn naam niet vermeld wordt. Maar via deze blog nu toch bekend aan jullie wie de tekenaar is van deze grappige plaatjes :)
