Production, design Staren Ivan

These are a few things I made in december for Christmas gifts (and a golden tunic for myself...)
Olle got this silver space suit.

Mr Helylle got a sweater, a result of a co-production between me and Olle. Olle did the drawings, of himself and a leopard, and I did the sewing and ironing. I also embroidered an explanation "Olle and a leopard" so there would be no mistakes.


Ylva got a pyjamas made of sheets I slept in when I grew up.

"Staren Ivan design" is written on lables I ordered to sew on things of my own design. It's an anagram of my name but staren also means the starling. Pity I always forget to actually sew them on to the clothes.
I will continue the parade of home made stuff another day.
I hope your year started out OK? Mine did, I feel good though I dread tomorrow morning when the alarm clock will sound at 6.30...

You make the best presents EVER. So clever, creative, meaningful and happy.

It's 5:45am here January 2nd, so I know exactly what you mean about the sound of that alarm clock.

Let the new year begin!

Anna, I wish you all the best for 2009!

One of my New Year wishes - I always just make wishes, no resolutions - more fun that way... contained thoughts of you! I wished for a spinning tutorial??? Guess by whom??? Maybe it can be a start of an co-production between Staren Ivan and Jeanettes handmade. He, he! You will get an invite for "Syträff" when I get back from Åre.

Work tomorrow eh? For me too. And then some serious packing and off to the train...

See ya soon
Jeanette

New Year greetings to you!
Those pyjamas are so so so cute. I love that they are made of sheets you slept on.
I hope the alarm isn't too alarming at 6.30am.....
