I'm teaching myself to sew, which is no easy task, but thanks to the world wide web there are hundreds if not thousands of sewing tutorials to try. I would very much like start creating some lovely upcycled clothing items, similar to those seen on Wardrobe Refashion. Clothes that have been reworked into something more flattering, unique and special. Recycled Fashion at its best!
I am trying out some online sewing projects at home, which are not always related to clothing, but are great to get familiar with fabric, patterns and sewing machine settings. I found this cute little 'pointy kitty' soft toy tutorial c/o WeeWonderfuls.
Here is my attempt, made from fabric scraps my Mum gave to me. It turned out OK?
A flickr group has been created, whereby other people upload their completed pointy kitty's using the WeeWonderfuls pattern:
But what I really love is someone going by the name of 'eco tabby' using the pointy kitty pattern to make cats out of plastic bags, and uploading funny photographs to the Flickr stream:
Arent these just the most ridiculous yet hilarious upcycled things you've ever seen? Particularly the cats with the shopping bag handles left on! Genius.
