Sewing Away

Archive for the ‘clothing upcycling’ Category

We do not have a separate changing table, only a mat what you can put on the top of the crib. So it means we move it a lot, there is no space for diapers, cream or anything to be on it. That is why I thoughy that it would be practical, useful and convenient to have an organizer what you can hang on the side of the crib. I recycled and old pair of pants, used my fancy new snaps for closure and made the decorative robots with a bleachpen.

Have a nice weekend!

My little son has been growing so fast since he was born, that by the time I manage to make something for him it is already almost too small to wear. I have to plan in advance and start making bigger sizes.
Here are a few pair of pants what are easy enough to throw together in a short time.

Hello there!

Last weekend was productive; I made this little baby hoodie as well. Again the tutorial I found is nice and easy, check it out here. Credit goes to leafytreetopspot.

So this is the result:

And this is my husbands old sweater what I used for the project:

A few more photos of the sweater where you can see that the front is lapped, giving an easy access to the baby. 🙂

I am planning to do more baby sewing projects this weekend! Have a nice time!

I have not sewn any clothes for myself for a long time, so here it comes.
I used my husband’s old pants what had such an oldfashioned shape, something carrot-like, so he did not wear them at all. I love how it turned out, perfect for spring/fall especially with colorful pantyhose.

Have a nice weekend!

The internet is full of the new trend of shoes with bright coloured part in the front. There are a lot of diy-descriptions about it. This one inspired me:

In spite of I love the the bright pink or yellow versions, I am to shy to wear them so I made a little more conservative black alteration. I love them! 🙂
