Such a great idea. I might have to make one for my baby dog, he loves to make nests out of blankets. He's a bit bigger though, I hope it will still work:)

Ooh this is absolutely gorgeous... I've been after a cape for aaaages!

What level do you reckon you need to be sewing-wise to have a go at this?

I'd say it's fairly easy. If you have ever sewn anything that requires more then a few straight lines, I'm pretty sure you could do it:) In this pattern you just sew the shoulder darts (or whatever they are called) and then sew the two pieces of fabric together. If you're interested I could make a tutorial.

I made this cape almost exactly a year ago, but completely forgot to post it here. It was one of my first bigger clothes projects and I'm still extremely proud of it. It's based on this "free pattern": http://matterofstyle.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/cape-coat-diy-free-pattern.html (I couldn't figure out if I can actually print it for free, so I just improvised, glued together the same number of A4 papers and drew the same lines... It worked out great:)). I also added a collar.

I've lined it with pink fabric. I don't know why, but pink is my favourite colour for linings:)

I also didn't really know how to make the arm slits, so I completely improvised that part. I made something resembling 2 giant button holes and then covered them with a black rectangle made out of the same wool as the collar. Probably not the neatest solution, but at least I can put my arms out and play with the dog:)

Thank you! I bought the book and am still looking for the perfect pattern. If all else fails, my mother has a friend who can supposedly make any pattern in the world (she's a sewing teacher) and I'll just go to her:)

I'll try "proper" gardening next year, although we don't really have a lot of space so I'm still not sure which vegetables I'll plant. I'm also used to growing everything from seeds (my father also grows tomatoes and such vegetables from seeds), but it was a bit late for that this year (we moved in the middle of summer).
On a similar note, is it possible to grow lettuce from seeds indoors (in bigger potts) during winter?

I've been trying to regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps for two months now  and some of them are actually growing quite well. I tried it with celery, leeks, lettuce and ginger. I thought they will grow a bit faster, but it might be the colder weather and lack of sunlight that is slowing them down (or maybe that's just the speed these vegetables normally grow at, I don't know:))

week 3:

week 8:

The only vegetable I'm not having any real success with is the lettuce. I guess I'm trying with the wrong kind (although I did try 3 different kinds) and it just starts growing the tall flowery part (or whatever that is called) and no leafs.

it looks like this:

So I was wondering, did anyone else try regrowing kitchen scraps and what was your experience with it? I'm thinking about trying it with other plants, but don't trust the general internet any more (since all of the regrowing articles claimed lettuce is perfect for regrowing:)) so I thought I might ask here first:)

ps: If you want to read more about my project, there's a report on my blog: http://pinkasblogblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/regrowing-vegetables-an-experiment/

Gorgeous. I especially love the collar part of it. I second everyone who said they would buy the pattern if it was available in pdf Smiley
