Hello fellow Creative Peeps,
This is my very first blog post, and I am very excited to be here. I am happy to share my ideas, inspiration and tutorials with you.
Here is a little bit of info about me. I am a creative individual, who can Sew, Paint, Draw, Knit, Crochet and Craft things.
My specialty at the moment is re-fashioning/re-purposing clothing. Which simply means I can take a new or used article of clothing that is not loved, and turn it into something more suitable. For example, someone gave me a Victorian style nightgown. It was a lovely nightgown, however I prefer to wear pj's, so I turned the nightgown into sleep pants and matching top. Now instead of a gown hanging in my closet collecting dust and wasting space, I now have a comfortable pair of pj's that I wear often.
I will be posting the tutorial on the nightgown to pj's conversion soon including a photo.
I also use non traditional articles to sew with for material. For example, I recently made a hockey jersey for my newborn grandson using a facecloth (this will also be a tutorial soon). I also like sewing with curtains, dish cloths, tea towels, sheets, pillow cases etc. I like to think of this as my contribution to going green, as I recycle these articles that otherwise would go in the trash.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and please come back soon to see some of my work.
