I’ve just applied to enter the first ever “Refashion Runway” hosted by Beth at ChicEnvelopments. It will be run in a manner similar to Project Runway and The Great Sewing Bee, where six chosen competitors will submit refashions each week. These will be judged by readers like you and one person will then be outed from the competition, culminating in the crowning of the first ever Refashion Runway champion. Continue reading
This refashion was more like a total rebuild. After thinking I could just alter the hem, I still wasn’t happy and I eventually unpicked all the seams and made a whole new skirt from the pieces.

The internet is swimming with tutorials for No Sew Tutu’s exactly like this one. Maybe it’s because they are just so ridiculously easy, fast and fun to make.

Offsquare has had a refashion of its’ own! What do you think?
Angela at Striking Keys and I have arranged a skill swap and I must say, I’m quite a fan of this concept! She has given my blog a much needed update and she will, in return, get a snuggly rhino made for her soon-to-arrive little one.
I was so excited to hear that Angela was interested in working with me on this. I’ve been a fan of her blog for a long time time and her bullet point posts always make me giggle. She often has a good story or experience to share and through her book reviews, also introduced me to the writing prowess of Laini Taylor. I’m not usually a fantasy fan, but Laini is really something else.
Thanks Angela for your hard work! Hoping Rhino becomes a much loved family member in due course
It’s been raining here lately. A lot.
Fortunately, our house has remained flood free and Poppet loved watching the lightening flashes with us. Little Guy just tolerated it.
The torrents of water served to get me motivated though. After getting drenched through while doing groceries, I was inspired to attempt this jacket refashion. Again.
