Jeg er begyndt at synes, at patchwork er meget, meget sjovt, og med morskaben følger naturligt et ønske om at lære mere. I stedet for at købe mange, mange bøger, som er min sædvanlige fremgangsmåde med en ny kreativ hobby, har jeg valgt at gå kursusvejen. Dette skyldes især, at jeg ved i et tilfælde så, at Speich Design lige har offentliggjort deres kursusprogram for efteråret 2011 og foråret 2012. Jeg har før gået og sukket lidt over deres kurser, men har ikke før synes, det var så relevant. Men nu er det anderledes, nu skal jeg på kursus og lære og lade mig inspirere. Jeg har meldt mig til et begynderkursus i patchwork henover en weekend i efteråret, og I kan tro, at jeg glæder mig helt ustyrligt.

I’m slowly becoming totally enamoured with patchwork and thinking it a very fun and enjoyable way to spend time with my sewing machine. With this enjoyment also follows a wish to know more. Instead of buying a lot of books, which is my usual approach to a new creative hobby (or indeed any hobby), I’ve this time chosen to go the workshop way. One particular reason for this is that I saw that Speich Design has just made their programme for workshops in the autumn of 2011 and spring of 2012 public. I’ve previously sighed over their programme, but haven’t thought it relevant. But now it is different, and I’ve signed up for a beginners course in patchwork during a weekend this fall, and I’m looking very, very much forward to it.

I mellemtiden kan jeg stadig finde ting at more mig ved symaskinen med. Det varme vejr kaldte på kortere bukser til MM og med hans hjælp (han holdt pænt stoffet og gav mig knappenålene en ad gangen) blev et par piratbukser hurtigt færdige. Stofvalget er også MMs, og han er meget glad for sine krokodillebukser med bånd med togvogne på. Det broderede hjerte er for at lette hverdagen for Magen, sådan at han ikke skal spekulere, hvilken side er forsiden.

In the meantime I am still very able to have fun at my sewing machine. The very hot weather, we’ve had resently, called for shorter pants for MM, and with his help (he held the fabric for me and gave me the pins one at a time) I quickly finished a pair of pirate pants (is this the correct name in English as well?). MM also chose the fabric and is very happy about his crocodile pants with embelishment of the ribbon with trains on. The embroidered heart has nothing to do with MM, but is mostly to ease the everyday for the Mate so he needn’t use too much brain power thinking about which way is the front.

 

  • Mønster/Pattern: det sædvanlige Minikrea posebuks / the usual suspect, Minikrea baggy pants
  • Stof/Fabric: kraftig bomuld fra Frau Tulpe i Berlin / sturdy cotton from Frau Tulpe in Berlin
  • Strørrelse/Size: 4 år, men klippet uden sømrum for at gøre dem lidt smallere og forkortet 20 cm for at gøre dem til piratbukser / 4 years, but cut without seam allowance to make them slimmer, and made 20 cm shorter
