My first attempt. Chairs are ’60’s holdovers that I picked up for free on Craig’s list. Came in a nasty mustard yellow crushed velvet! UGH! Been saving the lovely striped green and white fabric…

Anyone know if there’s a Burda-style pattern for the great trousers above? That’s what I’d like!

Lovely stuff! Anyone know of a pattern similar to the waist cincher shown in the pic on the lower left? Seems fairly simple but can’t get it large enough to see detail!

Those are soooo pretty! I just love ‘warmers’! Haven’t had the courage to try my own, yet. Do those stretch or snap around?

Nice and warm, quilted from left over fabric and a daughter’s imagination!

I have this lovely vintage fabric from my grandmother’s stash, some leftover lace and coin trim, and a pattern for a sweet little bolero! Voila!

Fabric remnants, a couple of patterns spliced together, some outrageous fringe, a bit of free time, and voila! I love this vest hoodie!

That is extraordinary! It is very similar to a scarf I saw on e-bay (although that one was made of linen) and wanted very badly. Unfortunately, the bidding went way past my level – over $60! You…

I saw a fancy trash can at the department store, covered in leather and chrome studs. I made my own from faux suede, gaudy gems, and a bit of leftover silver trim! I like it!

These Thai pants are my first Burda download creation and I could not believe how easily they went together and how comfy they are! I plan to make lots more! I used the pattern plus the very exce…

I bought an extra large fleece shirt by accident at Goodwill, and rather than take it back, I cut it up and made it into this baby pod. I liked the moose and tree embroidery on the back! It went …

As you say, amazing cotton! Where, if I can ask, do you get your fabric? I am very limited where I am, and hope to find an outlet for better! You are very talented!

Lovely fabric and you did a beautiful job on the neckline! No puckers or bumps. I envy your talent!
crockett315 commented on the project Skipping flowers
