Sunday Bookmark

I know it's been a really long time since I posted one of these and I don't even remember at which number I stopped, so I guess I will leave them unnumbered from now on.

Today's bookmark from "In Color Order" is for an easy tutorial for lined drawstrings bags which can be used in various ways. And just in time for christmas preparations since they can also be used as reusable gift wrapping.

Happy Sunday with lots of sewing fun!

Preview burda style December 2011 - looking good

Yes, I'm still alive... I know, I have very much neglected this little blog of mine. Life got in the way and it took me some time to get settled in my new job and the new town I moved to. But I'm loving my new job even though it can be stressful at times and it is leaving me with lots of free fabric at the end of each season (mostly small pieces of sample fabrics). And I have refound my love for sewing, for some time I have only done quick and easy projects that left me kind of unsatisfied but I have just finished a blazer that I will show you as soon as I get some decent photos of it.

But now to the promising preview of the December issue of Burdastyle, you can find the photos of all garments here and the technical drawings here. Lately I have not been too enthusiastic about Burdastyle's issues but in this preview I have already found several pieces I love.
I love the feminity of these two pieces.

Adore this skirt, will definitely make this one.

And there a lots of gorgeous evening gowns but unfortunately I don't have the occasion to wear them. Enjoy!

All photos thanks to

What do you think about Burdastyle's latest preview?

Happy sewing!
