I have made something everyday this year!! That's dedication isn't it!? Yesterday I grabbed some studio time, found 2 T-shirts in a pile of clothes which was dropped in my lap and made my Bear and Bubble something new and comfy!
Bear now has a new pair of comfy pants which also resemble a pair of fisherman pants. I also found out that the original shirt was damaged by bleach but I think it looks great on his pants. I used an existing pair of his pants as the pattern. Yes my 4 year old is obsessed with Michael Jackson.
I made Bubble a skirt using the bottom of another shirt. Just cut straight across and added elastic. I also removed some patches from the shirt and resewed them onto the skirt.
All in all not bad for an hour in the studio. You can check out more on my BLOG.
I also had time to make myself a necklace from a thimble check it out HERE.
Plus a new up cycled tutorial of mine has also been featured in a lovely new Tea Zine buy a fellow refashioner check it HERE.
Well I think that's it. I hope I can stay in contact with all my new refashion friends long after Nikki has started on her new journey. I wish Nikki the best of luck in 2011... Bring it on!!
Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and stayed safe! Me and mine [minus my hubby] went to Tasmania for a week! It was amazing!
Before we left, I reconstructed a pair of my mother's pants into a pair of skinny-pants for the Little Monster with suspenders!. My mum also reconstructed that shirt from a business shirt of my dad's! It was her first reconstruction EVER and i'm super proud!
Long time no post from me, but I had to do a bit of an emergency refashion just before Christmas when we realised the lass needed a Christmas dress for a "do" at daycare the evening before it was needed. While searching for something else I found a long sleaved t-shirt the husband had worn at work the Christmas before that I had kept precisely because it contained heaps of material. This is the result:
The ribbon is there to hide the name of the company my husband works for. It says "Merry Christmas" on the back in large letters, which I left thinking they fit the occasion :)
