Winter Series ~ Cozy Mittens

Second in the serie: a cozy pair of mittens!

I had been on the hunt for some nice mittens for a few years now. The ones I liked were mostly made out of wool. Which is nice, but not when you're cycling a lot. The wind (and rain) just goes right through them! If you can't find what you're looking for: make them yourself :)

And so I did. I used interior fabric, because it is sturdy and quite water- and windproof. For lining I opted for some fluffy shearling material. So soft and cozy! And an absolute dream to work with.

Final presentation & Revit renderings

Last Friday was my final presentation of the design project of the past semester. Because of this, last month has been really busy for me, so sorry for the lack of updates and replies.
Doing a master architecture project is pretty intense in itself. I worked on the same building for almost half a year, it was hard work. When your building is 'finished' you need to prepare a presentation. I have to say, I was totally not feeling the vibe and my presentation was a bit of a let down in terms of drawing techniques. Anyway, I passed the project!

 The one thing I did really enjoy was working in Autodesk Revit. This software is pretty new. When I started this study 4 years ago, we were thought Maya. Now the kids learn Revit in their first year. Even though I never had lessons with this software, I started using it in an architecture project last year. This project I used it again and it's a really great product!
