Reversible fashion face mask



How many of you out there have become intimately familiar with face masks in the last few months? Where I live, it is required to wear a face covering whenever we're in a public building, so I've been making myself a variety of masks—the goal is to have one to coordinate with every outfit, and maybe a few just for fun!

This one is my favorite. It's reversible, with an owl on one side and a rabbit on the other. Because animals are awesome but still not enough, it's also decorated with subtle 3-D flowers.


I made it from the remains of a quillow (quilt that transforms into a pillow) that got damaged in storage!


Head over to my blog post to see more, including a link to the pattern. And stay safe out there!

changing my man's shirt into summer dress


Summer is almost here ,what makes me extremly happy as I love this time of the year,
 from fashion point of view I can get crazy with all kinds of dresses . 
Now on my crosshair are pencil dresses, I find them very feminine, perfect for outdoor parties with friends. 
For this refashion I used very large men's shirt in lovely baby pink color, prefect color to highlight the tan by the way .  If it comes to fabric it's 100 % egyptian cotton  so it will last and last .



Whole process how to do it you can see on my channel sparrow refashion

Upcycling of Sofa cushion cover


Back from the time when we where working in our friends upholstery business, I still have several,boxes of material/off-cuts. One of them was a discarded cushion cover in faux suede. Instead of normal handbags, I prefer larger bags to save taking a shopping bag for 2 or 3 items. I worked without a pattern, everything is just approximate. The lining is another small piece of upholstery material printed with African wildlife.

Tarted up car seat covers

I never find car seat covers I like and I do not want to pay the rather exorbitant price for nicer ones. So I buy some cheaper ones and "do" them up. This time I used a piece of linnen like red material which I attached along the middle section of the seat. Makes me happy every time I use the car!

Diy crop top | men's shirt refashion





From my last refashion I still had plenty of material as my navy blue men's shirt was very big. 
I must say I love such thrifted goods , 2 nice clothes from  just one ... perfect deal.
I decided to use these leftovers to sew crop top, perfect top for summer days but not only as you can see on photos.
