Spring Sewing ~ Spring Ruffle Top Tutorial. From Rae: This spring top is perfect for layering under cardigans in cool spring weather and can be worn right into summer!

Spring Sewing ~ Spring Ruffle Top Tutorial

Choose two contrasting fabrics for extra pizzazz. The instructions here can be tailored to any size. Side view with pockets. Step 1: Take your chest and hip measurements. Measure around your chest, with the measuring tape under your armpits and above your bustline (this is NOT the fullest part of your chest). Example: My chest measurement is just over 35 inches. Here is the formula for you to use: ____ + 1” = _____ / 2 = _____ + 1” = ________ inches Next measure around your hips at their fullest point. Example: My hip measurement is 41 inches. 41” / 2 = 20.5” + 1” (seam allowances) = 21.5” (we will call this “Y”) Back detail. Step 8: Attach straps to chest band. Step 9: Shaping (optional) and finish hem. Step 11: Stand back, admire, take a picture and put it in the SMS Flickr Pool!

Green top variation with contrasting fabrics. Yellow top variation (minus ruffle details). Altered Flip Flops Tutorial. While I live in Southern California, I am not much of a stereotypical "California girl"- I have short black hair, fair skin, I can't get tan (unless my millions of freckles blend together one day) and I don't run around in a bikini and short shorts.

But I do love my flip flops and living in California, I have developed quite the collection- and because it is 75 degrees year round- I wear them every single day! These are my favorite pair. My husband got them for me when he spied them in a local surf shop and thought they looked like something I would make (messy and colorful). They are Sanuks and while they were not cheap (yes $32 is a lot for flip flops in my world!) They were SO worth it because they are just about the most comfy pair of sandals I have ever owned. p.s.

vintage flair: make a (faux) fur collar

This tutorial has been rolling around in my sketchbooks and imagination for oh, a good year! I finally spent some time this past Sunday working it out and documenting my steps to share with you. Now that the weather is turning cold, it’s the perfect time to pull out some fun (faux) fur accessories to add a bit of pizazz to your cardigans and dress necklines. Mustache Applique Tutorial. Here it is first ever tutorial!

Mustache Applique Tutorial

I've been dying to make a mustache t-shirt for my guys so I thought I'd document the process as I go along. If you've never appliqued before, you have to try it. Trust me, you'll be hooked. You can add so much character to a basic little shirt or hoodie and appliqueing is perfect for covering a stained but otherwise great t-shirt. This particular pattern is great for the beginner. What you'll need for this project: A plain t-shirtBlack felt or black fabric (if you use felt, I recommend a high quality felt such as Eco-fi or wool blend felt.

Since I use Heat n Bond, my instructions will follow Heat n Bond's instructions. The first thing you'll want to do is take your mustache template and place it under a sheet of your fusible webbing. Pencil skirt w/ tutorial. I had pretty much never drafted an actual pattern before and it turned out to be halfway decent.

Pencil skirt w/ tutorial

Start by taking these measurements: waist, hip (this includes your butt), waist to hip and hip to wherever you want your skirt to fall. Also, maybe measure from hip to hip in the front and back separately. Now take a piece of paper and draw 2 rectangles. One is for the front of the skirt; the other is for the back. For the front, put your waist divided by 4 + 1/4 an inch (dart) + 1/2 inch ease at the top, your hip divided by 4 OR hip to hip in front/2 + 1/2 inch ease a little ways down, and your waist divided by 4 + ½ inch at the bottom. Not too Tutu tutorial. Do you remember this tutu?

Not too Tutu tutorial

The not-so-flouncy-as-a-knotted-tutu version of a tutu? Well, the daughters of those lasses that asked for a tutorial may well have packed their bags and disappeared off to college by now, but I made some more tutus this week, so I have finally got around to writing down the instructions for you... For approx. a 2 - 6 year old child: here goes... You will need: - to ask yourself why on earth you are not just making the really easy knotted version instead - no, seriously...
