    joybells commented on the project blue revival - refashioned dress

    Fantastic! I just love refashioned pieces. I work at an op-shop (thrift store) for a few hours each week. It’s a treasure trove of pieces begging to be reworked – which I do bring far too much of h…

    After an unsuccessful search for a doona cover for my toddler’s bed, I decided to have a go at sewing one myself. It was so unbelievably easy! I’ll definitely make another in the future. I didn’t h…

    Bag_01_listing

    Funny how you can suddenly find a use for some fabric you’ve had in your stash for an age. This black and white fabric I’ve had sitting there without a clue how to use it and then – free pattern in…

    joybells commented on the project Sunny Summer Project

    Love your dress. Is the waist sash part of the adjustment you made to the pattern or something you tie on? Either way, it looks great. I have this pattern and it’s next on my list of things to make…
