DIY: Cut This - Stitch That - Measure This

This was a very long jumper with long sleeves. My mother bought it for me and in the winter months it was good under clothing to keep warm but i had to re-vent it i cut off the sleeves and stitched it pretty. Now its a dress with short sleeves.

This was made out of cast of fabric i didn't want to throw away blue and purple i cut them down to size stitched them together also i will be adding some fabric to the bottom to create the balloon effect.

This fabric i got from a pound bucket on the local market i trimmed it to size stitched the ends together and the top and bottom now its my high wasted skirt. 
(it gives the effect that you have a flatter tummy).

DIY: Merry Christmas!

Christmas can be an expensive occasion for every one so here it what i have done to try to save the pounds this year.

Santa stockings

Mittens
With the Santa stockings i trailed my husband round the local market for fabric (he wasnt happy but i was) i got some white fur fabric (fake) red santa design fabric.
Draw out 2 stocking shapes stitch them together inside out, turn them the right way round stitch some fur around the top of each stocking. 
You can have any colour shape or size you want be creative.

The mitterns. When doing the mitterns leave plenty of room around you hand and make sure you make the wrist area bigger aswell (remember with sewing you loose some of the size always measure a bit extra) sew them together inside out, turn them right way round the again stitch some fur around the wrist area. Keep trying them on for size. Use any colour shape and size be creative.

DIY: Before and after

Orange Power

This is how the dress used to look a boring summer dress.

This is how the dress looks now a great skirt which i love.
This is a piece of clothing that was an unwanted pressie so i customised it. 
I cut off the ties and the boob tube area then hand stitched the top 
measured my waist with elastic.
Place a safety pin in the end of the elastic and thread it carefully threw the waist band make sure its not twisted (like mine was) stitch the 2 ends together finish the skirt.
There you have a unwanted dress into a great skirt which i love wearing.


Haven a nice day
