Dot to dot bunny shirt


A few weeks ago Alex and I came across a dot to dot rabbit shirt in Topshop. I was inspired to make my own, with a lop bunny (my favorite). Perfect for Easter!
Download the template here and print it on A4 paper.

1. For this project you will need: a fabric marker, a white cotton t-shirt, a piece of cardboard, the A4 printed pattern 
2. Place the cardboard inside the shirt (to avoid bleed trough)

3. Put the pattern under the shirt and place it where you would like it. Then trace the lines with your marker.
4. If your marker instructions say you should iron your design: turn the shirt inside out and put scrap fabric inside the shirt so the bleed through doesn't stain the back of your shirt. Then iron for a few minutes.
Tips and tricks: 
- Try to find a thin marker. Mine was quite thick so I had to make the numbers bigger than I originally intended.
- Practice on scrap  fabric before tracing your design so you get used to the marker. 
- When picking a shirt pay attention to the neckline, if it's too low you'll have less space for your bunny. Also, try to pick smooth cotton, it will be easier to draw on.

Happy Easter!

London Love - Part 1


Sab and I, we miss London a lot. So we took a little break, leaving boyfriends and pets behind. Our two days marathon was so great. We mostly ate, shopped, and enjoyed the sun. In that order. 

We started with a brunch on King's Road at Au pain quotidien, the large basket of bread to share rocks. We then spent the day in Chelsea (Anthropologie store Hellooo) finishing in a pub. I believe it is the only pub in all England that doesn't have Guiness and serves instead a beer that tastes like cold coffee. Worst beer ever. 

Sunday we went to Richmond. According to Sab, Richmond is part of the country side. Cause you know, there's grass and stuff. I didn't know that part of London well and I loved it. We came home with 3 full bags each.

I had a lot of fun and it was such a fun weekend. London's the best!




Love,

Cake stand



I love cake stands, they make me feel fancy. I use sticky tack to make one which can be easily taken apart for storing. I already had blu tack, and thrifted the rest, so my cake stand only cost me $2. Not bad right?


1. For this project you will need: sticky tack, a plate, a candle holder or anything that has a suitable shape (make sure the base is wide enough to support the plate). I found the plate and base scattered in the store, probably from the same stand, but didn't need the missing metal core.

2. Roll pieces of sticky tack and place them all around the rim. Make sure the pieces are quite thick.
3. Place the plate on top and push down so it adheres.
4. Now all that's left is to bake a cake to put on your stand. Be careful to always hold the stand by the base, and not to put too much pressure on a side of the plate!


You can use this method to make a variety of stands, like this smaller one made with a thrifted plate and candlestick.

Skiing - Alpes (France)


Sorry i was offline for a while. But i went skiing. It was so nice. I obviously suck at it, but there's still mulled wine and hot chocolate to confort me. And amazing landscape. And foothball playing with my cousins/nephews/boys of my complicated family.

Anyway, i'll be back with more stuff,


Love,

Welcome Marlowe

So happy to share some pics of the new little pup. Cutest dog ever. And most annoying as well. He's so little and all. I've wanted one for so long i was thrilled the day we went to pick him up. He slept all the way home.


Love,
