Amsterdam: City of Bicycles

all pictures taken by Lela
The bike pictures above were taken on my recent trip to Amsterdam. The city is full of bicyles off all kind and color, it almost feels like there are more bikes than people. And quite often, the rides were just too good of a motif to walk by without taking a picture.

Flower Power: Floral Umbrellas, Please

So, it's April and we all know what that means - it's gonna rain eventually. At least that's what I'm expecting living here in Berlin. And I'm not gonna be let down by the clouds above me - that's for sure. But to fight the rain and still bring a little spring feeling to a cloudy day I'd love to use one of these flowerful, colorful umbrellas once it's pouring cats and dogs. They come in all sorts and hues and are perfect for a dull day, don't you think?

DIY this: Cloud Print Potholders

Today I would like to share with you a tutorial about how to make your own potholders. Including printing your own fabric - totally from scratch, so to say. It took me about 2.5 hours in total to make them, excluding the time to let your paint dry. The potholders now hang in my kitchen and are actually a little too pretty to use. To make your own potholder-wall-decoration, just follow my simple tutorial. Aaaaaand, here we go:

What you need:
  •  4 squares of fabric ( I used two colors and the squares are 20x20 cm)
  • 1 square of thick plastic or carton paper (also 20x20 cm)
  • 2 squares of volume fleece (this is gonna be the filling, also 20x20 cm)
  • Fabric paint (I used silver and black metallic)
  • Any shape you want to use (I used a cloud cookie cutter)
  • Bias tape (enough to edge the border plus making a hanger)
  • a sponge brush
  • some tape

See the full tutorial after the break
