Mini project: upcycling a coat for my daughter

I found an old coat of my oldest daughter in the attic, so I decided tha I will "pimp it up" for the younger daughter.
So I bought these wonderful embroidered fabric covered buttons from fellow EST member Deepindigo yesterday, and because she lives in The Netherlands too, I got them already today in the morning :)

I made a little fabric brooch to complement the buttons, and the Dutch theme, of course :)

European Street Team's weekly challenge - My flowers

This week's theme is "my flowers" given by Karuski.

My entry is something very new for me, what I never made before: a bracelet made of fabric!! :) Recycled and upcycled, I used an old pair of jeans as the base, a piece of lace I found in my sawing box, I used my sawing maching (for the first time in two years :)) and some fabric paint to give them a trendy look, and I made a beautiful sheer flower from organza and satin, and gave a touch of luxury with some Swarovski crystal beads.

Secret Easter Bunny swap

This year I participated in this fun evenement of the European Street Team, The Secret Easter Bunny swap, organized by Mitsy (thank you, darling! :)) and my secret bunny turned out to be Nanouke, a sweet Portugese girl who makes fantastic wire knitted jewelry. Look what I got:
I got a fantastic purple ring, and a fun brooch with purple and pink beads and - my favorite - a big, pink ball brooch!

I was the secret bunny of Tamara from paperfection, unfortunately I forgot to make photo's of the gifts I made for her.
