I Made A Fabric Purchase

I bought some fabric online from here, a very easy to use, informative site. My stash arrived beautifully packaged with a cute receipt.

The tweet fabric is only 1yd and I'm not sure what to do with it yet. The tattoo fabric will be another wrap shirt, with sleeves this time.
The pink polka dot is for a shift dress for my 12 yr old - emo/anime type affair (with strawberry patch).The check (this bought locally) will go to make more jive pants.

Watch this space!

I Made A Hawaiian Wrap


I bought this Hawaiian shirt from a charity shop for a couple of quid as part of my Refashion Pledge. It was XXL but I loved the fabric.

I dismantled the shirt, used a 'wrap shirt' pattern to create a summer top.

There wasn't enough fabric to create the wrap so I used the sleeves from the original shirt and grafted them onto the pattern front.
As a result, I have palm trees both vertical and horizontal .. but hey, who'd notice on a hot beach with a Pina Colada?

I Made A Cup Of Java

I finished off my 'Diner Shirt' with a cup of Java.

Now I'm longing to make something glam for Spring!

I Made A Troll Frock

I was sitting waiting for an important phone call when I thought, 'Darn it, that Troll needs a frock.'

As a kid I had a whole bunch of these critters, all with fabulous hand made outfits.

Frock made, I took the phone call.

My daughter now wants a complete spring wardrobe.
