Using the 3 R's

As we know, we've learned from our parents to recycle more than to throw out. So I've been thinking green lately. I've thought of sewing with what I have than to throw it all out or to let it collect dust. How about i reuse the fabric from previous projects or even old clothes that i don't wear anymore. Today i was ruffling through some bags and boxes when i encountered something great! My old baby clothes! Full of bright colours and eye catching design. I may be able to attach them together and make a quilt (full of memories) or make them into shoes and sell or donate them to those who need them. Well i'm excited!

Great news! I recently learned how to use a twin needle... unfortunately one of the needles broke :( Looks like i got to buy another one! Talk to you guys next week!

Hey everyone!

Just wanting to tell you about this website that I'm also posting my stuff on! Burdastyle, you can leave comments, favorite, learn how to sew and plenty more! I first found out about Burdastyle in the morning when I was thinking about what to make with all my left over fabric from previous projects. When I stumbled on this website, it was a community for sewers/seamstresses. Then and there I decided, "Why don't i join this community too?" Later on I decided to add all my projects on. Sooner enough people, whom i don't even know, started commenting, favoriting and asking for tips on how i made certain projects. Another thing I like about Burdastyle is the pattern page! This page is where Burdastyle as well as other members of the community, post up printable patterns that you can make at home. This is fantastic because most of them are less than $5 or even FREE! So come check it out! I'm sure you'll be able to find something your looking for!

Better version...

The Emami Dress

Just look at this dress! It is simply stunning, even more than the le sac dress! So i have decided to scratch that idea and go on to this dress. Although i will have to try and think of how to create it, I believe it will be worth ever stitch! I'm quite excited! It's the same material as the Le Sac Dress, which is jersey knit. I believe i'm going to stick with my colours that i chose, perhaps the darker colours as they look stunning! Yay! Please enjoy the video of the different styles as I watch to see how exactly this is made, unless i find a tutorial online. Which would be lots of help!\

By the way! I am sorry for not posting something on Monday or yesterday because i was awfully busy and didn't have the time to go online!

I see right through to you!

I see right through you by DJ Encore, music from the 90's which i'm starting to listen more to because of the lack of originality in music these days. There has also been a lack in style for fashion! There's nothing new now that hasn't been done before. We've actually started to resort to the same ideas from the 90's, 80's, 70's even the 60's. Let's look back!
