Hello ladybirds, just prepping for the no-sew upcycle t-shirt workshop i'm running on sunday at the handmade fair. there will be patches, jewels, sparkly delights and rainbow threads to play with, but more importantly there will be the opportunity to come and get confident taking scissors to your stuff 😀 and you get to hang out with craft queen @sewyeah who has epically organised it all and the awesome @make.e is running a fimo workshop right after, so you know where i'll be 😊😘

We got some steeking and crochethacking going on today. say what?! steeking is a technique for cutting into a knit fabric without it all unravelling, awesome for rescuing and remaking redundant knitwear (especially if it's acrylic, we don't want those guys heading off to landfill). i cannot wait to show you what these ex-sleeves are going to be! 😀💚🌍💪

Today i made business dungarees with piping!! check it!! 😀 i have also made a proper 9 minute tutorial that you can swipe and watch! let me know if it works for you guys. this one is called adventures with bias binding - a mix of how to use bias binding/tape with how to put your dungarees together.
.

how is the sisterhood of the travelling dungarees? have any more of you got your patterns?! would love to hear 💚🌍💪

Today’s #visiblemending project! 💚🖤 my toes have been sticking through these for ages so time to do something about it! hopefully this will be enough to keep these going for another year or two! 🖤💚 2nd one (on the right) came out much neater than the first! #practicemakesperfect

This is so not what i should have been doing for the last hour 🙈 two xl mens tees rehabilitated as a t-shirt dress... swipe for the steps. this one is a real quickie and perfect for the sudden uk heatwave! .
.
(i thought this was gonna be super straight forward but i ended up unstitiching it cos i got it all squiffy and then i had to remake the pockets cos i sewed them up inside out! and when you sew it together it turns out that the easiest way is to put one piece inside the other with the right sides facing and just let the sewing machine do it's thing cos otherwise it got all crazy stretchy. i think this one may need a mini tutorial 😉) .
.
i blame this accidental remake on the fact that i got an awesome book in the post yesterday called '99 ways to remodel a t-shirt', (although it's all in french so i'm not entirely sure if that is what it's called 😁). it's super inspiring and i love seeing passionate people sharing their ideas with all of us, swipe to see it 💚💪🌍.

I know i just got back from hols, but packing up to head off again tomorrow and whipped these up for my gorgeous sister @chessyfury (cos hopefully we'll get to see you!)
.
.
2 things i have learned from this pair:
1.a double duvet cover will make 2 pairs of dungarees - that's two pairs for a grand total of £2! and cos this duvet cover is a polycotton it wouldn't biodegrade so this is a double win 😀
2. it takes 1.5 marple's to make them from start to finish. (yes, that is a 120 minute miss.marple, i wouldn't know it in poirot's as they are not a standard unit of measurement)
.
.
i promise to make a slower version of the scarf folding and cutting but it'll be in a week or so! 💚💚💚
