Friday Favorites, Episode 12: The all-sewing edition

Wow, so I guess this marks 3 months that I’ve been doing this regular feature! Though it’ll be a short one this week, since all I’ve had time to do with the blog feeds is skim. So I hope I didn’t miss anything really cool! So this week is all sewing.

1. Not so much a technique or tutorial, but this shirt from The Sewing Divas was a good reminder about how crucial pattern layout can be with certain prints–not something I usually think about, but should more often.

2. Sharon B posted a link to a tutorial for little stuffed fabric birds. They’re just really cute.

3. A few weeks ago, the featured project at Threadbanger was this “shrug wrap thingy”, as they dubbed it. This week, they posted a step-by-step how-to with pictures, which is far more helpful to me because then I can print it out and take it to where my sewing machine generally resides. And I liked this one.

4. Favorite refashion of the week at Wardrobe Refashion: Someone made a belly dancing skirt out of jeans. Must weigh a ton, but it looks great!

That’s all for now. Happy Friday!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog awhile back. I’m catching up on posts and thought I would visit you too. I love all your refashioning posts and pics. I keep saving clothes to remake into something, just haven’t done it much. ALthough I did make a kids back out of kids pants. That’s about it. Thanks for sharing the links in this post. I love the little bird pattern and have printed it out.
