oh happy day

Do you ever stumble across a new blog and then think, "Where have you been all my life?!" This happened to me last night, as I was browsing thru sewing tutorial links (because I am completely addicted to sewing right now, if you can't tell from all my sewing related posts :) ).

First, followed the link to these fabric baskets (which I can't wait to make. I may have to stop everything and make one this morning.) My office is badly in need of some of these babies.

But then as a I browsed the rest of the blog's post (blog is called Vlijtig and she is from the Netherlands) I was blown away by all the beautiful projects.  Here is just a little sampling of things I loved:
This is also a tutorial, how to make gift pouches.

So, has this ever happened to you? Stumble across a blog and immediately you MUST add it to your reader? Please share links!


  1. I love these! I need to make some for my office shelves too! I have taken on way too many projects so it might have to wait for a while. BUT since you are really into sewing you should check out this blog: it doesnt show you how to make them, but it is super inspirational to see what she does with these old ugly dresses.
    and for invitation inspiration.. I love this blog:

    I love Love your blog. :)
