After looking for a suitable shorts pattern for ages, I decided to make my own! So I drafted a pattern from my favorite shorts, added some freehand changes and adjusted a bit as I went a long. Turned out just the way I wanted! The fabric is 100% wool, bought for 20 NOK / 2 GBP at Fretex (a charity shop). Perfect for cold and rainy days in Bergen, summer or winter...




My bag collection is now for sale! If you want one, visit Sanseliv at Bryggen i Bergen. You can also contact me by e-mail or leave a comment if you want to buy one, and I'll get back to you.


"BAG - by petch"

I have a part-time job in a small designer shop on "Bryggen" in Bergen. During the summer I also work full-time while the owner is on vacation. One of the great things about working there is that I get to sell my own designs in the shop! Right now I'm working on a collection of bags, made out of old fabrics. All the bags are made reversible, one side with pattern and one plain. I enjoy unusual combinations of colors, and all the bags are "one of a kind". Above is a random selection to show you the variety - what do you think?

Now I just need to order some metal tags with my brand name "by petch", before I can display them in the shop. So in a couple of weeks (hopefully) you can buy my bags from Sanseliv.

For the past month I´ve been working full time as an interior designer, so that I can afford to pay rent and have some fun during the summer as well. And that means no time to be crafty! I´ve put together some of the photos I´ve taken lately, for you to look at while waiting for more creative posts. 

Enjoy the summer, people!
