Needlework in progress - crochet top and knitted vest - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
I'm currently working on two yarn-based projects, a crop top in crochet and a knitted vest. Both have in common that I've done something similar before and that the yarns were not from my (still not shrinking) stash, but purchased specifically for these two garments. I'll tell you a bit more about these and why I chose them is this post (so this might qualify as unpaid advertisement), as well as the patterns I used an what I like about them.

Small things collected - gifts and drawings - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
Sometimes I make things that I think are too "small" for their own blog post but still worth showing, so I take pictures anyway. It's the little sewing, crafting or drawing projects that also don't have a big story to tell with them, still there are interesting bits about their creation. A few things from last year that I haven't presented yet, are the patchwork pouch, black and white ink drawings and water colour Christmas cards.

What's new with the patches? - organic cotton and reduced surprise packs - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
You might know, Zebraspider is going greener and fabrics are a huge part of it. Patches are definitely my bestsellers in numbers, no wonder that I would change this sooner than later. All patches are now organic. There are just a few old ones left for a reduced price. On this occasion, I also discontinued some of the less popular designs, so this is the last chance to get one of these.

"Mistake" may be a little over the top for some points, but there are a few things that can go wrong. So if you haven't dared yet or just need a few tips, this is for you:

Tank, Batwing and Longsleeve - new Tops in the Shop - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
This is the last part in the series of shop news for now - after I filled up the handmade tops section as well. Somehow, tops sell much faster than skirts, but I don't seem to make them as often. Maybe it's because I usually wear a lot of band shirts, although there are many cool fabrics in my stash that would make awesome shirts too.

Pocket Shorts for Roller Derby - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
I'm still doing Roller Derby and as I'm more advanced now, I'm going to more training sessions. More on how this is going also in this post, but first I want to show you my new sports clothes. For Skating, I usually wear shorts and currently I only have a bought and a handmade pair. Time to make another one that is exactly how I want it to be. That's what I did on my X-mas holiday. [Advertisement - because I got the pattern for free to test]

New stencil print zipper pouches - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
When I signed up for the market at Tomorrow's Ghost Festival in Whitby on a short notice, I had to make some new products quickly. I haven't made arm warmers in a while, so a batch of them was my go-to choice. There are two types this time: the straight cut ones with or without cuffing and the fitted ones with thumb holes, or fingerless gloves. I picked some of my favourite fabrics that I'm sure you like too.

Crochet against low mood - red fishnet top - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
I haven't been in a nice place recently. It probably was a combination of a stressful summer, dealing with colds in autumn and not a lot of energy left for creative projects. My mood was declining with the light and I thought picking up a simple crochet project might help. It did. Well, a bit at least. So today I'd like to tell you the story of the red fishnet top.

Stonehenge and Avebury photos - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
On our way to Cornwall, Stonehenge was close to the way and and I wanted to see it for a long time. So we made a little detour after Bristol and camped very near. But there was so much else too look at in this area. We roughly planned a whole day to look at stone circles and other neolithic sites. As usual with my photography posts: click to enlarge.

New stencil print zipper pouches - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
You did't hear from me in a while. I had to take a pause from weekly blogging and also from social media. I was so busy preparing for the markets in October that I was a bit exhausted (and also a bit sad that the selling wasn't so successful as I thought it would be). But I created a lot of new things during that time that will make it into the shop bit by bit. Today, I'd like to tell you about the new zipper pouches.
