“I’m Making That!” Monday – WIP Sorbetto

I intended to post about this make fully finished today, but alas, it’s not done! I decided I’d share it anyway in all it’s mid-way, work-in-progress glory. After the first Colette Sorbetto I made – forever ago – ended up a bit rubbish, I was a bit hesitant to try again. I’m hoping the change in fabric…… Continue reading “I’m Making That!” Monday – WIP Sorbetto

Refashion: Jeans to Handbag

In my last issue of Love Sewing (the best birthday present subscription ever) I found a tutorial for turning an old pair of jeans into a cool denim bag. What a great use for those worn out holey jeans that normally get thrown away! I have a growing pin collection (new obsession) and nowhere good enough…… Continue reading Refashion: Jeans to Handbag

“I Made That!” Monday – A Triple Bill

I posted yesterday about how happy I was to be returning to crafting and blogging (two of my favourite hobbies!) and today I have a few things to share with you. I’ve been sewing and crafting sporadically through my mini-break and as I’ve not posted in a few months I thought I’d give a quick…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – A Triple Bill

“I Made That!” Monday – Little Lace Headband or Getting my Mojo Back

Just a little one today. I mentioned yesterday about how I’m struggling with my crafty mojo right now. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I started in on making some clothes, and it takes so much longer than small little makes that I lose patience and motivation. What I really…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Little Lace Headband or Getting my Mojo Back

“I Made That!” Monday – Chair Cushion Cover

A few weeks ago The Boy and I redecorated our kitchen. I used some pretty tartan-style fabric to make a table runner and matching curtain to hide our bin. I bought a bunch more of this fabric to make (also matching) chair cushion covers! Though I’ve only finished one so far – I thought I’d…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Chair Cushion Cover

Refashion: Two Jumpers to Dress

I’ve been going through a phase of trawling charity shops for interesting pieces of clothing I think have got potential to be changed up a little bit into something that really works for me. This post is about one of those things, namely this wintery-patterned woolly jumper: Previously I’ve mentioned how I bought this jumper…… Continue reading Refashion: Two Jumpers to Dress
