Hi everybody, 

I hope you've had a fantastic week!

Mine was - pheew! Filled with coffee and computer work. Lots of it. The testing of the upcoming pattern is nearing an end, I'm tired and happy at the same time, seeing so many tweaks and improvements to the pattern - and the adorable photos of the finished items from my testers in my email. Next week, you'll see them too! 

I was again surprised that there was still so much of work left for last-minute, when I already thought I had it all done and polished! Now come a few quiet days. I hope :) During the weekend, I'll have time to think about what I want to make next. One, my wallet is falling apart, so it would make sense to start working on a pattern for that. But on the other hand, we have just bought a second ipad, so we have 2 ipads in the house and NOT a single case to store or carry it around securely. I'm tired of tucking it behind a piece of cloth in the backpack when we leave for a trip. Not elegant, not effective, not - colorful! :D

If you were me, what would you make first? A wallet pattern, or an ipad sleeve?

Heart-warming memories with this photo! It was a while ago when Maja from @shopmaedesigns made these cute little Kaia bins. She was one of the first people who bought this pattern, and in a few days she added these pretties to her Etsy shop. I was happy to see they sold out very quickly! 

Check out Maja's shop HERE ❤️ and the Kaia pattern HERE.
