Tutorial: Recycled Ribbon Organizer


Have you ever found yourself drawning in lots of ribbons, all messed up?! Did you? And did you wonder how the hell can I organize them all?

Well, that's surely what happened to me, when I found myself bringing home those lovely ribbons. So, I had to come up with an idea to organize them. And after just a little time, I discovered my solution. 


Do you want to try too?!

Here's what you'll need:
1 paper toillet roll
packages card (you can use the ones from your cereal box)
glue tape, any kind

Start by cutting a piece from your roll. Or as many as you want to make. You might want to cut the width according to your ribbons width.

Then fold your card and cut a circle a little bigger than the roll.

 You've got the 2 circles you need for your ribbon organizer.

Add some glue tape all around the roll. You can add one by one too, just like I did.

And start gluing it to one of the circles.

Once you've glued it all around, you can start glueing the other circle. It will give you a little bit more trouble than the first but not much.


Use your scissor's edge to make some holes in the card, both sides of course... 

And the organizer it's done. See how easy it was? Now you can go and make yourself as many as you'd like to.

To start rolling your ribbon into place, you can use a little tape in the edge, so it won't move from its place.

 Fill it with your gorgeous ribbons and display them wherever you can. I still have to find a way to keep mine, but I am thinking about using a shoe box, and wire to keep all my ribbons in place. Of course, I will share if I do so!!!

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.


I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.


So, the first thing you have to do is…

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
