Diy Flag Crop Top

There isn't much summer warm weather left, but that didn't stop me from making a new crop top. I blogged about this fabric when I bought it a while ago and mentioned I didn't know what I was going to do with it. I initially thought it would make a cute dress, but, I'm not a big fan of dresses. I personally prefer having seperates because then you can mix and match your pieces. So I decided to make a top and later get around to making a skirt. I don't have my usual sewing machine so I really wanted a piece that would be fairly simple to make. To make it just a tad bit more interesting I thought triangle ties would tie in the triangles on the fabric. 

I like how it turned out. I'll have to wait and see how much wear I can get out of it now that it's cooling down here in Sweden. But the major positive is now I now the sewing machine I have here works just fine.


Diy Muesli Mix

I decided some time ago I would move towards living and eating healthier. Slowly I've changed habits in a lot of different areas of my life. In terms of my diet, I'm moving towards not eating any processed foods (I haven't gotten there as of yet). This has lead me to a new appreciatiation of eating muesli. There are so many options at the local grocery store to pick from that you could spend months experiementing. The whole "no processed foods" however, has cut into the different options I have. It really defeats the idea of eating healthier if the muesli I'm choosing is chock full of sugar. So inspired by the muesli I've loved the most recently I decided to make my own mix. 

Ingredients: Left to Right
Sliced Almonds - 1/2 cup
Pumpkin Seeds - 1/2 cup
Sunflower Seeds - 1 cup
Rye Flakes - 3 cups

Just add all your ingredients to a container and mix. When I eat it I usually add chopped apple pieces (I have a surplus at the moment from my apple tree) and sugar free soy milk.
