Karin + webpage making

Today I learned how to write an entire page in css/xhtml! And then I did that + the images. It was for school so I really was Forced To Make Something. The subject was happiness, hence the title & all.

Karin makes a sleeping bag case

I made this the other day because I gave my sleeping bag case away to a guy in Copenhagen since he needed it more than I did. Also I like this new one a lot better since it's easier to carry it around with a larger handle. And it's prettier. Sadly my sleeping bag itself is really ugly so now I'm thinking I will need to decorate it somehow to match the case. The fabric is as always thrifted...

Ps! Our friend Pierre will guest blog for us a little bit this week! He has a lot of creative projects going on. And Åsa has finally graduated from bagery school and will be a little less busy perhaps. I have a week of intense studying ahead and then I will have summer off and start sewing clothes for my site again!

Karin & Frej making a banner

I stole this one above from Yelah.net

Frej and I sewed and embroided a banner (all from vintage fabric & thread) and went to Copenhagen to demonstrate against the meeting at Bella Center.

Karin (and Ulrika) changing fabric on furniture

Today my flatmate Ulrika and I changed fabric on a sofa we found in the trash outside our apartment.
We didn't have any instructions or experience so I think we did really good!

I got all worked up with the easiness of changing fabrics and changed an old pretty gross brown fabric on the chair to this one from Johanna & Mattias, took five minutes!

Karin mending dresses

I got these two broken dresses from Johanna & Mattias and decided to mend them yesterday on our sewing circle night. The pink 20s one was cut up by the shoulders and had to be taken up quite a bit since it was pretty stained by the hem. The pale turquoise one had a cut off sleeve so I cut the other one of too and made it sleeveless instead. Should have ironed it before I took pictures though…

Beautiful details.
