However, I feel like I am getting better at this, and it usually takes me a day to finish a project, but with a full time job, a load of other things on my plate I just seem like I cannot afford a whole day to finish a project. Hence, my projects take days to be finished. Nevertheless, I really like what I am doing and therefore persist in finishing a project at a time. Blogging, however comes a little later. And writing step-by-step tutorials is a thing I still have to master.
Nevertheless, my poor time management hasn't deprived me of the desire to spread the word about importance of refashioning as a part of a larger 'reuse, repurpose and recycle' movement to help the planet survive us.
Here is my latest shiny cardigan refashion, which I really hope you'll like. The sweater or blouse (not sure what was it made as) I refashioned dates back from mid-nineties when my mother purchased it. She used to wear it with black outfits to formal occasions, and stopped using it at least a decade ago. For the past ten years it was mostly sitting in the closet pretty much forgotten. And as I feel compelled to first deal with the piles of clothes my family collected and kept for years - my refashions are (and judging to the amount of stuff we have, will be for a long time) the go-to material for my projects.
So, please, meet my new shiny cardigan - perfect for chilly Mondays and lack of inspiration days:
