Today fast transformation of 2 boring sweaters into crop sweaters with a message to the world.

No, I'm kidding with  this message , just with cool logos of my favourite animals :-D.

It's winter here so it's time for winter sewing. I started season with sewing coat.

 As my fabric I used warm blanket , perfect for those cold days.   It was good choice because coat look perfect and like straight from catwalk ;-).

 To make sewing easy and fast I prepared also  free pattern.

The $1 Outfit



Hell Refashion Co-op. Happy 2021 to all of you. Let's hope it is a better year. I put this outfit together for $1. That is a good way to start 2021, right?

This sweater was my husbands and it has the company logo from a job he had ages ago. I wanted to resize it and cover that logo.

I used this flower to cover the logo. The flower was on a box of Tieks that my daughter bought. It had an elastic band on it. I cut the elastic off and pinned it to my sweater like a broach. It covered the logo perfectly.

These denim jeans had a great pattern. I got them for less than $1 at a thrift store bag sale. They just needed to fit better at the waist and hips. I tapered the calves to make them skinny jeans.

The fit of both of these was much better and I got them both almost for free.

Dressember Dresses; The New Year's One


 Hello Refashion Co-op. Happy New Year to all of you. I refashioned and wore dresses an ties all of December in honor of Dressember. Dressember is an organization that fights human trafficking. It a fun way to raise awareness of this issue. This last refashion is also my first refashion of 2021. 

My husband got a small hole in this cotton sweater. I loved the color so I decided to make myself a skirt from his sweater. I thought a few months ago that we might do something fun for New Year's Eve. (We did not go anywhere. Thanks Corona virus.)

I cut out a straight pencil skirt shape and sewed it together.

I used the hem of the sweater as the waistband of my new skirt. The stretch of the sweater makes the skirt fit well.

Beach Ready Refashion Part 2

 Are you ready for Part 2 of my Beach Ready Refash?!? I am very excited to share this one with you all!

I had this canvas tote laying around waiting for a new life! I also found this fantatic flamingo shirt from the thrift store! I LOVE flamingos so this shirt is perfect for me, except the size….a tad too small.

I cut out around the flamingos and ironed it to some heat ‘n bond so I can iron it to the canvas bag.

Ironing the flamingo decal to the canvas bag.

Once the flamingos were ironed on I went around the edges with pink puffy paint to make it look more finished.

While the pink puffy paint was drying I moved to the inside of the tote. I grabbed an old teal pillow case to make a lining for the tote.

I used some of the leftover pillow case to make a small pocket for the inside.

The finished inside! Complete with pocket!

I found this adorable pompom ribbon at the Dollar Tree! I sewed that around the top!

To finish off my new tote I sewed on these big pink buttons!

Beach Ready!

I am in love with this flamazing new tote!

Happy Refashioning, Crafting and Upscaling!!!
