2022 Year in review: The Dresses

By Sølvi Elise | 31/12/2022

So, I´ve not documented most anything of my makes for 2022, I think. Let me see…(goes to check IG)…that´s not entirely true, I published som pyrography and a bouncy bunch of some knits and corduroys, but apart from that – nothing. Didn´t even post anything for MeMadeMay this year. Such is my social media fatigue. I still make things though. I mean, who am I kidding – of course. So lets see. In no particular order, here we are – a display of some of the things I made in 2022. The review I realize with all things considered, I have made more items than I can fit…

I´ve grown tired of the clutter of social media, so I am going back to basics. I am blogging again. Watch out, maybe I´ll throw in a link from Flickr, just for old times sake. Ok, that´s it for now, more to come.

on the eve of me made may

By Sølvi Elise | 30/04/2019

On the eve of Me Made May 2019… The Me Made May challenge is in its tenth season. I remember when it all started, back in 2010. It was one of my first interactions with the sewing community. Can you believe it we were only around 80 members back then!  I hadn´t been sewing for a super long time, and not at all in a way that made me sew with a plan or intention. Back in 2013 I even wrote a reflection note called The evolution of me-mades looking at my participation from 2010-2013. From 2015-2018 my head was not so much in the sewing game, I…

Springspiration & Plans 2019

Delfinelise sewing and knitting plans 2019

I recently started reading blogs again (thank goodness my old Feedly-feed was still active), and on the Sewcialists blog, I came across a link to MyBodyModel. I´ve always loved sketching out my sewing plans, and this little app makes it possible for me to make croquis much more resembeling my own body. That´s truly helpful when it comes to seeing what shapes I tend to gravitate towards, and how it will actually look. Since I´ve had the flu, I´ve not had any energy to sew, but sketching and coloring is a perfect activity. I had some A5 card stock laying about for a while, I bought the wrong…

Sølvi Elise is wearing a selfmade shirt and heavy glasses

 Hi there! I´m Sølvi Elise. Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. This is a space where I share my craft projects  and thoughts and ideas concerning handmade in a consumerist world.

I live in Oslo, Norway where I use my spare time stitching up my own wardrobe. So far, I´d say that 80 % of my closet is filled with me-mades. I also have an interest in historical sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, leatherwork, tablet weaving, rigid heddle loom- weaving, cocktails, jewelry making, makramé, shoe making, drawing, paper craft, machine knitting and generally any craft that looks like fun.
