Spring is here

Hej!
Although it' s rainy and grey outside, I am happy. Every winter in Sweden is a new challenge for me. It' s so cold and dark during the winter months and even though I came up with some strategies, they don't work all the time. But for now winter is over and I welcome  spring time!






I take a lot of walks and find plenty of inspiration for a new pattern I am  working on. It' s called Waldboden (forest soil). Oh, I am quite excited about it!






Beautiful structures and colours, don' t you think?

A swedish home

Hej!
I want to show you the apartment of Annie, Robert and Nea. They live on the upper floor of this beautiful house. The apartment is beautiful too, wooden floors and a looooooot of space! 








I directly fell in love with these textile sight protections. Annies grandmother made them. Aren't they beautiful?

Time

Hej!
The winterlight is gone. It feels so good to know that spring is just around the corner. Yes, we had a little snow some days ago, but it's a lot about the light. The sun shines stronger and longer. 



Weekend Impressions

Handpainted fabric - cushion cover DIY

Hej!
As you know I print on fabric. I use screenprint or I make templates/ stencils, sometimes I color the fabric before. This time I just painted on the fabric with a stencil brush. I worked with a dry brush, that means you don't dip it in water but only in the colour. This way the bristle strokes are visible and I like the rough appearance of it.





The one on the first picture is my favourite and I made a cushion cover out of this fabric. You can do it too, it's very simple :)


You need:
Black textile paint
stencil brush
fabric

How to:
Wash & iron the fabric and place it on a table. Put newspapers or an old cloth under it. You can tape the fabric at the edges with masking tape, so it doesn't slip. Dip the brush into the color and start drawing. Do 3-4 brushstrikes or even more. The brushstroke gets more interesting with less colour. Do a test on a little piece of fabric before.
Fix the colour according to the manual. Now you can sew whatever you like, here is my finished product:
