Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher and would’ve loved more than anything to have a chalkboard.

We spend a lot of time during the summer on our patio. The patio is an add-on with a neat tin roof and wooden enclosure, but when the natural light is gone it can be very, very dark.

I have been really looking forward to this week’s challenge – I knew
exactly what I wanted to make when I got this week’s theme – a bookshelf/
Barbie house. And wow – did I search for the right book shelf – the
shelves needed to be big and deep. Someone told me about a second hand
store I didn’t know about – and finally I found just the right one.

I’ve been to the Dollar Store several times. The first time I came
home with some cheap yarn. I started to knit, but decided it was too
boring. Then I went back and I found these dish towels and fell in love
with the fabric used. I bought two of the pink/white towels and made a
pair of pants from them. I loved them so much, I went back and got some
more towels – and some in the other color (which I didn’t use) and some
Out of six towels, I made three looks. This one with a coat and pants. One
with a vest and pants and one where the coat is worn as a dress. I can
even dress two girls from these looks.
I used the (tiny) scraps that were left to make a hair clip rose and a pin
rose. The pin is really neat – I can use it to close off the coat – making
it a dress, it can be worn as an accessory and I used it to keep the vest
closed. I made the patterns my self.
I am really happy with the look – and even better, so was my model.
