Refashion Giveaway

Friday, November 25, 2011

As a thank you to all Recycled Fashion followers, I am offering three of my own refashions to giveaway.

1. Blue and pink jersey top

Playing around with a bag of hand-me-down clothes, I've pulled out two jersey tops, and mixed the two together, taking the front from the blue top, to add as an applique and sleeves to the pink.
Before & After

Worth noting, the easiest way to add an applique to the front of an existing top, is to cut away the side seams to slip the front through your sewing machine. Then sew or serge side seams back together again once applique has been zig-zag stitched into place.

Making use of blue jersey top's bottom edge which is already finished, it has been cut and used as cap sleeves stitched onto pink top's armholes..

I'm giving this top away. Fit size 8-10. Who wants it?

2. Butterfly toddler shirt sleeve PJ pants

I've finally made use of some leftover shirt sleeves from my butterfly shirt refashion..

Best fit toddler size approximate 18months. Do you have a daughter/niece/friend's child/grandchild/cousin that would like them?

3. New design zipper brooch

Celebrating the fact that I now have an online store selling some of my wares on Recycled Market, I came up with a new zipper brooch design yesterday, using second-hand zips, lace from the op shop, and backed with an antique inspired pin. I'm giving this one away too....
