    Gorgeous. Perfect fit – don’t make it more snug, it looks really classy. You know it’s too snug if you can see the bra outlined on the back – that’s the benchmark I use when trying on something new.

    Many thanks for the compliment! I do look forward to giving them to her.

    Maybe one to keep on file for when the grandkids arrive instead… Perhaps not straightaway, mind you! ;-)

    flosiepoos commented on the project Nappy covers / diaper soakers

    Thanks!

    I simply used the waistbands and wrist cuffs of the felted jumpers to make the waistband and legs. It was a zero-waste use of the jumpers- I use the small cut’offs to fill soft toys and…

    flosiepoos added the project Skirt to Obi belt refashion
    Obi1_listing

    I liked the embroidery on an old skirt and decided to turn it into an obi belt. I padded the belt out with some cotton wadding commonly used for quilts.

    I used more fabric from the skirt for th…

    Pretty! Beautifully made.

    I also made a dress in this fabric (the ‘Royksopp Dress’), and it’s lovely to wear and attracts a lot of compliments as it’s such a striking print. It wears just like a …

    I had to figure them out myself too, did it wrong a few times at first, then I got the hang of it. They’re good fun to make!

    I’ve found a really good video on YouTube you might like – explains t…

    flosiepoos commented on the project tattoo JJ to work

    Love it! I made a blouse out of the same fabric too last year and like you loved the contrast between the print and primness of the blouse’s cut. Prepare for lots of double takes when you’re wearin…

    Oh, well done! That was clearly a much-needed upgrade of a shapeless affair – adorable!

    flosiepoos added the project Jute and felt kindle cover
    Kindle_listing

    I wanted a cover for my Kindle to stop it getting damaged in my bag. It’s so much more fun making your own! It’s a quick and satisfying project.

    I used a small jute bag from Oxfam

    flosiepoos commented on the article Embellish It!

    Great post! I’m going through a bit of an embroidery phase at the moment, I’m into upcycling charity shop finds and embroidery is a fantastic way of making something your own. Right now I’m working…

    I made these tennis ball size felt balls using tightly wound wool scraps and cut-offs from felted sweaters I am using for another project. I came across the idea on a super cool blog, Resweater

    I like yours better than Vogue’s version! And I once took about the same time to knit a scarf so you’re in good company ;-)
