Hi, House of Estela readers. I'm Pam from Threading My Way. I really enjoyed being a part of Refashion Month, both earlier this year and in July last year, so I am thrilled Magda is hosting another series this month, even though her hands are full.
I've been sewing for many years and love to share my projects with others. It's only in recent years, though, that I've begun to see old clothes in a new light. Pre-loved clothes, as I prefer to call them now, can so easily be given a longer life by refashioning them into something new.
As a former school teacher, it will come as no surprise, that I also like to write sewing tutorials. I began my blog in 2011 and, bit by bit, I am learning some behind the scenes aspects of blogging - things that work for me.
When I began blogging, I didn't realise what I was getting into. I was totally unaware there was a whole new world, full of warm and welcoming people who sew. People like Magda - creative, inspiring and generous. I have so much enjoyed becoming a part of this community and not a day goes past when I'm not on my computer, reading blogs, learning new things and just generally being motivated and inspired to sew.
To showcase the work of others, I host ongoing link parties, where you can add your own sewing projects.
Apart from my family, my other passion is gardening. It's a toss up each day as to which activity will receive the most of my attention.
Enough about me. This time I've chosen to make a cushion for Refashion Month. I'm not sure if making a cushion can be called a refashion. Perhaps it's an upcycle. Whatever you call it, my jeans pocket cushion began life as a pair of jeans and a dress. Head on over and I'll show you how to make one for yourself.
