Yummy, Organix!

Hi there

When I started my blog, I mentioned the allergies of my son. He has an egg allergy and a severe peanut allergy.

A lot of cookies for baby's contains eggs or when it didn't contain eggs there was a trace of peanut mentioned on the cover. A couple months after we discovered his allergy, we found the cookies of Organix goodies. (www.organix.com)

The company was founded in 1992 and their cookies have a "no junk promise". This means that they commit to never add anything unnecessary to the biscuits. I love the idea behind that!

And the fact that my son may eat a lot of their products (and he also likes their biscuits), you already now what I buy in the shop. At this moment the favorites of my son are carot fingers and the alphabet biscuits. 

Depending from the country you live in, there is more or less choice. But do try the rice cakes! Especially the rice cakes with apple flavor.

Okay, enough publicity for one day. If you have tried it, do not hesitate to give your thought on it. 

Have a nice evening and read ya the next time!


Bags, bags, bags!!!

Dear reader

After a few weeks of illness it was time for some action! On my list: bags, bags and bags. And I loved it! You don't have to be an experienced sewer to start with an easy bag. 

My husband already asked for a sport bag for several months. But it is so difficult to find fabrics for men. Now I have used the army colors for the bag. Not so original and I was really disappointed in the lack of choice for him. Though, my husband is using the bag so it is approved. Yeah!!! I will try to add a picture later. 

The next items on my list was part of a gift. And I went for the summer theme. When you see the fabric, you will say; "that is not for summer". Black, red, blue... Though, everything I sewed is for the summer. And the fabric I used is based on the preferences I received.

I first started with a beach bag. Normally it is a pattern for a shopping bag, so with a lot of fusible interfacing. In my opinion it wasn't necessary for a beach bag, which doesn't need to be so stiff. 

As the beach bag was rather big, I also sewed a little clutch with a nice red placket on the outer fabric. So easy to put a little bit of money in it or your mobile phone. With the wrist belt it is also real easy to carry the cocktails from the beach bar. 

With some fabric leftovers I sewed several cases for sunglasses and a lip balm holder.

And I don't know what you think, but with these bags we are ready for summer! 

Enjoy the nice weather
