Advent Wreath

Happy second Sunday of Advent, everybody! Surprisingly, I made it to make an Advent wreath last Sunday so we could light the first candle in the evening. Admittedly it’s pretty simple but it just took me five minutes to finish it – and that means more time to snuggle the cutest little baby ever! And despite its simplicity I really like it and enjoy the way it looks with two candles burning. I hope you enjoy this second Sunday of Advent as well, spending time with family or friends, relaxing on the couch with candle light and a delicious, hot drink or maybe you appreciate some glogg on the Christmas market. Whatever it is you do to have a nice day, have fun!

Trousers To Fit

Compared to the knitted trousers which are available at the little stores in our neighborhood, they are really affordable, because you just need two balls of yarn – so these trousers costed me just 10 Euro. They may not be as perfect as trousers you can buy, but I’m extremely proud and satisfied that I made it to finish something I restarted this often and that it even came out to be pretty enough to be worn by our baby. And yes, I admit that I already bought new yarn for a second pair of trousers. Different colors and …

It is padded with volume fleece to make it soft and warm for the baby to lay on it, even on a cold floor during winter, plus it’s not too girly, so my boyfriend can also use it without being embarrassed. Here are some details of the changing mat: I sewed along the line of some of the chevrons to prevent the volume fleece from slipping out of its place when washing the mat. I used pink yarn to add a little splash of color to the front side, and I like that it also adds a chevron pattern to the inside fabric, but in a really quiet way. This was the first time I used my new Kam pliers and after figuring out how the whole Kam Snap system works, I am really satisfied with the result. It’s a great and easy way to add snaps and an …
