Still from the t-shirt scraps...

As G. fell asleep for her Sunday afternoon nap, I felt the urge to create. Really, just like two days before, when I had to jump out of bed and do something. Luckily for me, it was day this time. 
I didn't really know what to do, I just kept looking around. I have accumulated a few household shores to do but don't have the energy to go through any of them. 
I sat by my sewing machine and suddenly a light turned on. Near the machine, I still had the leftovers from the t-shirt refashion I made, and an idea started to gain shape in my mind. 
From the pink shirt I had a lot of fabric left, and as I was playing with it in my fingers, I decided what to do, in that same instant. Then cut and tah dah:
How I made it:
1. what I had left
2. the collar had girl written on it, which inspired mee
3. so, I folded it in half, and drew a circle line around it. From the neck line down.
4. cut it. later I basted too.
5. a new cute little skirt for my daughter.

It was going to be pretty much it. But then I still had so much fabric left... and did I mention I hate waste? So, I made a matching briefs. They were so simple to make.
5. fold the remaining fabric and scratched the briefs pattern, on the eye.
6. added an elastic band in the waist, basted the side edges, and added an elastic to each side (legs).
7. patched a heart shaped scrap to the back, just for fun... =D
8. as I felt like it wasn't yet enough, I also made a new headband to match. 
Now that I learned how to make these flowers it seems I want to make G. one matching all her clothes. 
I made a braided headband with the same fabric - again - and just glued the flower to it. I haven't done it yet, but I am planning a new t-shirt for her, using the white t-shirt leftovers. I have to check if there was enough left. Maybe I'll make them matching, and she's have the complete outfit. 

That's great that I made something for her. I love creating for my daughter. I haven't been making more clothes for her, because she has been given so many clothes that some she just won't even ever wear. 


  1. You are so creative to figure out all these cute things from a cut up shirt. The skirt from the turrtleneck? Just brilliant!

  2. Wow......Awesome!! love the pattern & color,thanks for sharing such a great idea.

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…
