So here we are in week two: Refashioning. For me this was a WOHOOOO theme, for Becca it was more of an OhNoooooo. Most of what I make includes some form of upcycling or refashioning, I built my personal blog around the idea that I could sew my children's wardrobes and save my family some dough. My personal stash of fabric is made of 90% clothing, sheets, and drapes that have been given to be in garbage bags from friends and family. I use this stash to mine for not only fabric, but buttons, zippers, and other notions. Now Becca on the other hand has only tired a few refashioning projects, and in an effort to clean out her house, got rid of 5 bags of old clothes right before we found out we would be competing in this competition... wah-wah-wah.Read More
For months, I've been drooling over photos of the infamous Boo! Designs Design Your Own Pinny. Every one I see is so unique and beautiful in its own way. I love seeing seamstresses take pattern and make it their own by adding their own special touches and design elements, and that's exactly what Kristie Gilbert, the designer behind Boo! encourages her fans to do.
