This week I cut, I sewed, then I cut some more and I sewed a lot!!! Yet, I didn't get done half of what I had intended, and a few pieces have been cut and are ready to sew... I need just a few more hours, so don't be surprised to see another one of these posts real soon!
So here's what I did get done... All of these are my own creations, actually I didn't even use any patterns... I just cut straight into the fabric!
For Mister M...
|Some comfy leggings with some cool knee patches that once belonged to a pair of suede pants.|
|This was made from his Daddy Cool's shirt...|
|Mister M is long and lean... so I made him some long and skinny "Dressy" pants... The photos aren't great, sorry!|
Miss E was spoiled...
|This was an old sweater... upcycled into a girlie dress with some cute lace detail.|
|These leggings slouch at the bottom to give a leg warmer effect...|
They were made (the lower part) with some old arm warmers, who wears those anymore?
|The reversible vest...|
|Upcycled Hoodie turned into a warm jumpsuit...|
|These are made from a lace dress I found at the thrift store...|
|2 belts, one elastic with a heart buckle (these things have been in my sewing box for years!)|
One with fluorescent pink gros grain ribbon covered with lace.
|This is made from some pink modal fabric I've had for while now... I then cut out a big heart out of iron-on foil.|
|This scarf is made from an old table runner and I sewed up these suspenders with some|
vintage elastic and a small piece of red leather.
|A little bit of military inspiration... the buttons were taken off a broken bag of mine!|
|What do you do with a pair of |
High School Musical silver leggings your Mother in law has given you?
I make them into a size 3T for Miss E... Beats paying 35$ at American Apparel!
|This sweater used to be my sisters... It went from an XS to a size 3T!|
I just added 2 layers of lace at the bottom which I dyed in a silvery blue.
|These hand me down leggings had some holes at the knees, |
so I took another one of my hand me down sweaters which had two bear pockets,
sewed those apart and sewed them back on the leggings!
I hope I didn't forget anything! Hope you enjoyed this as much as did... I will try to sew more often, maybe for me next time! At least an hour every two weeks... I think I can handle that!
