I recently discovered Peppermint Oil (Pfefferminze Öl). I can't seem to stop using it in everything. See WebMD 

Just don't get it in your eyes.

Also I have been embroidering things and making small bags.
Evidence below.

Though the winter has not been particularly cold up until this point for swiss standards, I find that there are a few things that make all the difference for warmth. Tea and feet. 

I got this super tea robot for Christmas which you could also say is um heart warming. 

For my feet I have sewn some slippers and I have put together a amateur tutorial for you. 
and now mine. I added some embroidered beetles.

Standing on chairs

A few things have come together lately. The biggest being that my kind neighbor who was moving gave me a massive bag of fabric. I usually only have scraps leftover from various projects. So finally I have human sized pieces. The result is evenings creating a new wardrobe for myself.

Welcome 2013
This a dark brown silk dress I made for new years. I added a line of gold beads down the middle for some festive shine.

My favorite skirt I have made so far. It is a heavier grey knit so it practical to wear... everyday. 

Fancy Pants
I thought I was never really one for flowered patterns but I never tried and somehow it has its charm. High waisted and white patterned jeans, makes me feel like a 90's babysitter.  


I made this dress with the intention to wear for a holiday party. But guess what, I had no party to go to. The two fabrics are really a interesting texture that the photo does not show. 

Kick pleat

I made this skirt with my favorite fabric of the bunch a heathered lavender wool.The kick pleat is really fun, I feel I can only wear it with the accompaniment of lipstick.

Dance Pants
Rust colored silk with a timid palazzo pant. I am working up to being brave enough to make a pair with the full yardage. 


The last skirt I made recently still up to debate about the color (too much like doctor scrubs) and general fit. There is still more to be done.

Also thank to my aunt for letting be borrow her overlocker. Which is so fun to drive.

Portrait Practice

In an effort to move forward into the new year I have been taking time to practice. So bare with me.

I worked together with TBWA Zurich for a promotion piece for their agency. The idea was to make an inspiration tree that can continue to grow. It was super fun drawing in different styles and hiding in details. Can you count all the TBWAs? Here is the result. 
and some close ups...

Oh by the way Happy 2013!
