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.

What? You haven’t seen it 23 times elsewhere yet? Fantastic! Because I’ve also written a tutorial here just for you. Continue reading

Wallflower Pizazz

Who would’ve thought you could decorate a nursery using napkins?  Up until recently, certainly not me.  In fact, I would’ve pictured something tacky, flimsy and just outright laughable.

I’m proud to say that I think this project is far from that.  But if you can’t bear the thought of using something so outrageous on your walls, you could use tissue paper just as effectively.

I love the texture and feminine touch it adds to the room.  We definitely needed a girly touch in there.

Upcycle: Mens Shirt to Girls Dress

We’re still waiting for the arrival of our little one, but it means I have a little time free to share this gorgeous upcycle project with you.

I found this clever tutorial on craftster.org about a year ago but haven’t had anyone to make it for, so it’s just been bookmarked on my computer for such a time as this.

You essentially take a men’s shirt, turn it backwards and chop the sleeves to make a dress.  Then you create straps and add detail such as ruffles for a splash of contrast.  Of course, the tutorial is a lot more thorough so be sure to check it out!

I love that no-one would suspect it’s humble origins too.  I always like my upcycling projects to not actually look upcycled.

Happy sewing!
