Mom had ugly clothespin bags so I decided to make a new one, didn't find such picture from internet i wanted for reference so created my own from this kind. I assume mom likes more of actual bags when the pins follow you while hanging the laundry, so I made such. Her former bags had snap fasteners, I made zipper closure. The strap is adjustable, coz also mom's husband hangs the laundry sometimes and he's way taller than her :p

I also needed a new make-up bag before moving, so i sewed such. Result is a bit smaller than what I had in mind..
Also this fabric is from flea market ^^ Pattern I used is found here (i left the strap out).
I was planning to do with different pattern, but realized just in time the fabrics of choice wouldn't work with such pattern anyhow.

I've been so busy with our new apartment I haven't started any crafts yet, but I baked for dad and his friend when they brought us a bookcase!
White chocolate - plum - yogurt - tart 8) 
I was little disappointed with it, turned out it's not as yummy as it sounds, I call such pies adult pie, as older people find them tastier (= less sugar). Anyway, recipe to follow, if someone wants to try it out.

White chocolate - plum - yogurt tart

 Ingredients for 4

Surface:
1 egg
2 dl vanilla yogurt
100 g white chocolate
2 g ginger

1 dl sugar
2.5 dl wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 dl melted liquid margarine
1 dl skimmed vanilla yogurt

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the egg, lukewarm melted fat and 1 dl yogurt. Mix gently.
Spread dough into well greased pie dish (diameter 24-26 cm).
Cut the plums and remove stones. Use plums in halves or cut them into thick slices. Place them on the dough, proceeding from the outer edge to the center.  Cover with the yogurt-chocolate mixture.
Bake tart at 200 Celsius (~400 Fahrenheit) degrees on the lowest rack of the oevn for 30-35 minutes.

Tip
You can substitute plums with sour apples slices or 3-4 dl frozen lingonberries.
