Lewis sweater and a pencil bag


I created 2 things for my boys. One gets a sweater from La Maison Victor and the other a pencil bag from a book “Zo geknipt 2”.
Ik heb voor beide zoons iets gemaakt onlangs. De ene kreeg een hoody vanuit La Maison Victor en de andere kreeg een pennenzak van Zo geknipt 2.

First the Lewis sweater:
Eerst de Lewis hoody:
It is a lovely pattern with lots of possibilities. I took 2 0,5m tricot and turned into this lovely sweater for my 2-year-old.
Dit is een super tof patroon met veel mogelijkheden. Ik nam 2 lapjes tricot van 0,5m breed en maakte deze mooie hoody ervan voor mijn 2-jarige

Then I made a pencil bag for the 5-year-old. He has a lot of stuff that is only for him and not his little brother. Now he has a place to put it in and he has to take care of it. I found the pattern in Zo geknipt 2 and he loves the fabric so we are both happy.
Dan heb ik ook nog een pennenzak gemaakt voor de 5 jarige. Hij heeft pennen en potloden waar de jongste niet aan mag zitten dus nu heeft hij ook een pennenzak voor zichzelf. Hierdoor moet hij zorg dragen voor zijn eigen spullen en zorgend at de kleinste er niet aan kan komen. Het patroontje hebben we gevonden in Zo geknipt 2 en de stof koos hij zelf uit. Hij blij en ik ook blij.

As you can see I used a ribbon to close on the inside cos I made a little mistake there. But my son loves it so I am happy.
Zoals je kan zien heb ik binnenin een lintje moeten zetten zodat het mooi is afgewerkt. Dit verstopt de kleine foutjes die ik daar maakte. Mijn zoon vind het super en ik dan natuurlijk ook.

  1. Really interested to see someone else sewing from La Maison Victor! I recently discovered the magazine here in Germany and absolutely love it! Nice to see that the patterns come out well! Good stuff!

    • Thank you. I have all the magazines here at home (Belgium) and I just love the pictures and the explanation in the magazines. Also the pattern fit is perfect for me. And in every book there are 2 or more paterns that I make. Sometimes I make one patern in 4 difrent ways. But on FB there is also a dutch group where everyone post there outfit in the maps with the names (https://www.facebook.com/groups/507876769347435/ )
      And ofcorse you can always put your picture at the inspire me page of LMV. If you ever get stuck with a patern you can always mail me and then I will try to help you.

      • Thank you that is so kind of you!! I am definitely going to get a subscription to the magazine – it’s just so lovely and such good inspiration! I didn’t know about the Facebook group – I’m definitely going to have a look at that one! In the last German issue there was a pattern for some trousers that are a bit like the Hudson pant pattern … I think they might be my next project as I’m really in to sewing with jersey right now!
