Today is Part One of Sew and Tell. Because of the overwhelming response, I’ll be doing a few more weeks of features (rather than my original plan of two). I so appreciate every one of you sending your projects in, and hope you’ll enjoy checking out everyone else’s projects!
Ashleigh, from The Simpler Life, found this button up a yard sale (for $1!), and with the help of my button up refashion tutorial, and a few of her own tricks, turned it into a skinnified and flattering blouse! Check out her blog post about it here.
Dresden, from Dresden Carrie, had a cute oatmeal cardigan, and when it got a stain, she refashioned it with a little dye and it’s as good as new (also, now in a gorgeous color!).
Martha, from The Simple Things, used some old unused t-shirts, and some hand-me-down fabric to make herself two new dresses! Don’t you love the lengths she chose? The maxi is my favorite. You can see her blog post about it here.
Danni (or Dindin), of Dindin Does, made this pretty dolman sleeve top after wearing her Forever 21 dolman top to death (a girl after my own heart!). She made her own tutorial, which you can see right here. (also, I have my own dolman sleeve tutorial here, which is fairly similar to hers).
Erin, from Erin Brouillette, shared four of her projects. The first of hers is this cute ruffled t-shirt embellishment. It’s been forever since I’ve done some good t-shirt embellishing, so it was fun to see her take on it! You can see her post about it here.
Erin’s second project was this cool felt camera battery pack she made for her man. Check out her post about it here.
Erin made these fun little wooden boards as a gift. I love the gray paint against the woodgrain! See her post about it here.
Erin’s final project was this cool flannel plaid tie. So simple, and so masculine chic! You can see her post about it here.
Kimberly, from Parish Bailey, used my skinny jean refashion to skinnify an old pair of cords. Great job — they look awesome! You can see her post about it here.
Next Friday I’ll be featuring another ten refashions.
But for now, what was your favorite project from this first batch??
