Starting Tilda

Having gotten a Tilda book for my birthday a few months ago I thought I might try these hearts for Mother's Day. I got the fabric at IKEA, though - the Tilda fabric prices let my heart ache a little bit. ;-)

I decorated the hearts with buttons and bows. 

My mum put them on the door-knobs of her wardrobe, so I had to sew some more. 
Thankfully, Tilda's ideas are easy to sew.

Owl-timer (pimped "Old-Timer")

Long time no see.

After having sewn the swan-dress I found some old gift-wrapping from a friend of mine. It shows wonderful little owls in nice colours and patterns. 

I had this ordinarily looking timer which I found a bit boring. 
So, I thougt, sewing must work with paper on leather, too!

Hmm, actually, it was a bit strange and difficult but it worked out to be a special timer now:

They have great gift-wrapping in the UK...
