a lot of t-shirts with applique

And more and more t-shirts ...
these four t-shirts for Carlota. She chose the animals.
This time I have not sewn by hand and It is the first time
that I had sewed appliques with sewing machine.
I use zigzag stitch.


In curves I have some difficulty for sewing ...
I still have to practice a lot this technique!
However, Carlota loves these t-shirts
and I think that is good.


Also I sewed a aplique for me.
This time I have sewed with a straight line stitch,
to half centimeter of the edge.


And the postman takes me two packages Monday morning!
My own gift birthday! Yeeeeesssssssss!!!!!


I waited for many days it and I thought
that maybe it has lost along the way ...
Although I have not had time to make crochet
But I think that with this wonderful set
soon I come back to make crochet! it is amazing!
I loooooooooooooove it!


And the postman also led me another gift ...
all stitched for a friend ... is so beautiful ...
I do not have any like this! and crochet bunny has me in love ...
so simple and beautiful at the same time ...
thanks my lovely friend ...
thaaaanks ...


Thanks for your visit, my lovely readers.
And for to leave some of your time here,
in my world of wool.
I'm always glad to read your words
and you makes me always happy.

I wish you have a day full of crochet
and full of nice things!
kisses!

recycling t-shirts and Daughter - Youth

Almost a month since my last post ....
I have suffered a crisis of creativity. Perhaps intentionally ...
For a few days, yes ... I not have made crochet  because
I practice with the sewing machine ...


With the change from cold to heat  I found many t-shirts that were XL.
And one day I started to recycle these t-shirts ...


Just you need the right size, a little more adjusted.
On the reverse t-shirt, draw the shape of the shirt that you want,
put pins, cutting and sew!



I sewed some of them with draping at the waist
 and I also did some sleeves narrower.
For this I used a needle special for sew the t-shirt fabric.


My job allows me to choose holiday at any time of the year.
And now I'm on vacation time.
But some days have been veeeeeeeery stressful ...
because the health of my parents is bad and we need to go
habitually in the hospital ...


But still I have enjoyed GREAT moments with my lovely daughter.
She is the MOST beautiful thing in the world ...
And now she carries glasses!


And my birthday was in March, two months behind ...
But Carlota always told me a secret whispered in my ear:
"Mama, one day will be your birthday and we do a big party
and put garlands on the wall and inflate balloons!
and we will make a chocolate cake!" 


And Carlota made me  beautiful garlands ....
the most beautiful garlands of the world ...
and we had a family party ... with his favorite cake:
the cake of three chocolates ...


Life is full of obstacles ...
so many problems and concerns that we forget the important things ...
and the anniversary should be a celebration, right?
with garlands and balloons, and a chocolate cake ....


Carlota enjoyed the party as if preparing her birthday ...
she made the decoration with garlands ...
she helped me make chocolate cake ...
she is the driving force of my life ...
With two months of delay but we make our party!
Carlota was veeeeeeeeery happy ...
and this is the MOST important in my life ...
her happyness ... I love you Carlota ...
thanks for make me so happy ...

And during these days of sad and happy moments,
a band called Daughter ( here ) has been present in my head ...
the songs Medicine, Still, Lifeforms, Human, Candles ...
all songs ... breathtakingly beautiful ...



With the writing and editing this post,
I believe that my creative crisis has been somewhat overcome ...
Maybe soon I return to crochet ... I need it ...

And as always, thaaaaanks for being here ...
Soon I go visit your blogs and see your stuff ...
See you soon ...
thanks ...
