Sunny Spain


Last week we had a lovely weekend in Oviedo, Spain.  The weather was beautiful, as you can see in the pictures. We  had some lovely tapas outside on a terrace and even found a quiltshop. On sunday we went to the baptism of my friend's little girl María. She was baptised in a church in a small village called Lieres. As a present we made her a quilt which I will blog about later.

Pink and purple pillow

Made this pillow for my niece Sanne who turned five last week. Her parents gave her a new bed, so I thought this would be a nice personal addition.
I followed a tutorial on By Miekk and finished it off by ironing on a big pink S using vliesofix. It was an easy way to make a pillowcase for an unexperienced seamstress like me, especially because you don't have to put in a zipper. Make sure you draw the letter you want to iron on the fabric mirror image on the vliesofix.
