A quickie...

Just a quick refashion this time. Because I'm so busy doing other stuff....

Because we (sadly) only have one child we are left with piles of clothes she doesn't wear anymore but with so many memories!
But what to do with those funny and lovely shirts? I make pillows of them!
This shirt is one of my own old shirts. Because my elder sister was the first girl to wear it the shirt is about 30 years old!

We live near the forrest and when we take the kids for a walk they wear overalls. And we also live together with my family that contains 4 nephews so lot's of army stuff to pass on to my girl! And I wasn't a seamstress if I would not do something to make the army girly!

That's it for today, not even a new post on my blog.
See you next time.

Recycling Shoes!

Did you know that shoes are the perfect thing to be recycled? And it isn't difficult at all! Look what I made out of a really worn-down pair:

...well, the shoe on the left is the new one, hope that is obvious... :-)))

This is a great project even for a shoe-making beginner and I will post a how-to video asap on my blog Of Dreams and Seams.
The best thing about it is that you need no special equipment or materials. This is all I used:

You can find some pictures of the process on my Blog, but as I said, I will make a tutorial soon. I just couldn't wait sharing this with you... ;-)

All the best to you,

Patchwork Jeans : A Denim Refashion

Patched denim has been trending for a while now, and while you could go out to the mall to buy yourself a pair, it's easy and cheap to make your own at home!

(If you want to check out the tutorial, it can be found after the break on my blog, A Different Fashion. Thanks for reading!)

NikolaLuigi Refashion

Bonjour everybody! (that is the extent of my French currently. I am taking a night class though to improve soon, so hopefully my French (or German, haven't decided yet) will improve drastically!)

Today's refashion is simple pimple.

I took this scarf (which is more like a blanket) and turned it into a wrap.
See what I did with this here!!

And, as always, you can view my posts quicker on my blog here or my facebook group here.

My auntie gifted me a sewing machine this weekend as well (woooo!) so my refashions are about to get a whole lot more creative!! Look out for my posts!

Little Black Shirt

I have no occasion for this little black dress, but I could always use another fall top.

With a few nips and tucks I was ready to go!
