A lotta Lotta

I just recently bough these wonderful books by Lotta Jansdotter
and they're so full of inspiration!
Starting from the left there's
"Simple Sewing", "Travel Style" and "Handmade project"
Inspired by one of the projects in the "Simple Sewing" book
I made this cute and very simple draft snake filled with dry lentils
to keep the chilly winter drafts away.
I used an old pair of jeans and some more
Etsuko Furuya "Echino" fabrics.
And this pretty sun hat that I took with me to Acapulco.
I used a linen/cotton canvas
and lined it with some beautiful
Nani Iro fabric.
