Fabulous Free Pattern Friday The Layered Circular Skirt Happy Friday Everyone! Where does the time go?? Today marks the half way mark for the Fabulous Free Pattern Friday series, number 26! When I began this series, my intention was to have 52 posts over the period of one year and to post pieces that are extremely simple and hopefully stylish. Sewing can be quite difficult with all the fitting and detail work (which I do love), but I am hoping to show that it can also be quite simple, easy and fun. Fabulous Free Pattern Friday This week's pattern is really a repeat of last week's pattern. I thought I would show you how it looks when not on such a full skirt. Last week's skirt with an elastic waist. All pieces are rectangles. This week I took my basic skirt sloper and made 4 "legs" rather than the 2 on last week's skirt. Above you can see how the skirt looks before the rectangle is added to the bottom of the skirt.

Fabulous Free Pattern Friday I feel like it has been such a long time since I've done a FFPF post. But it was only two weeks ago as I missed last Friday due to the fact that I was trying to get my garment finished for the Passion For Fashion contest. I have been wiped out all week, but I'm back with a fun little jacket. Believe it or not, it's just one rectangle, one half circle and one triangle. I'm calling it the Geometric Dreams Jacket Fabulous Free Pattern Friday....A Little Late I must apologize for not getting this post out on Friday. First of all, I had a raging headache and my Little Bit was once again having back problems. I sat on the sofa and rubbed her back and tried to make her feel better. Thankfully, we're both better.

fun wrap skirts I've been obsessed with making these wrap skirts lately. The yellow and pink (or mustard and mauve ) is two overlapping layers while the stripped one is just one. I left the edges raw - because I like the 'deconstructed' look. The waistband is finished and long enough to wrap around twice or tie into a long bow. Dusty rose tunic {with instructions how to make it} Here I am with my newest tunic. What do you need: just a stretch fabric - jersey being the best, but one with high percentage of elasticity in it. Here's the how-to: Every step in the making of this tunic is made with the right side (the face ) of the fabric facing up.Do step 1. You don't want to mess up step 2. Category: Vintage A Very Vintage Wedding Fair Tuesday, February 12th, 2013 Love is in the air this Valentine’s week, and to celebrate, A Very Vintage Wedding Fair is throwing its bouquet to Brisbane once more! After a hugely successful event in 2012, this year’s fair promises to inspire future brides and grooms alike with its intimate, hand-curated showcase of the best in the local wedding industry. Held at the beautiful Bleeding Heart Gallery, attendees can peruse everything from vintage wedding dresses and era chic accessories, to retro hair styling and stunning floral options – all to the soundtrack of the Black Tie Band performing live.

A cute fix for a hole in the knee of jeans I wish this was my original idea, but I found it on Pinterest. I did however, do things a little differently than the original. The original poster sewed hers on by hand, but when I patch a knee, I like to sew by machine (because it's faster, and I am lazy, lol), so I seam ripped open the leg to sew mine on the machine, and I, of course, used felted recycled wool. Here is the before (not a very big hole, but it would have been quickly!) ... and after... How To Make a Bow Tie For Prom This time on Threadbanger, Rob and Corinne have been showing you how to DIY your prom threads. Now it just wouldn't be fair if we only worked on dresses for the girls. So, here's a simple tutorial on how to make a bow tie out of an old scarf. To see more of threadbanger, subscribe to us on itunes! 1. First thing is to get about one yard of fabric.

Gypsy Romance: 3-D Triangle Pillows Truth be told, these pillows are not actually triangles, they are tetrahedrons. But not only is that impossible to say, it sounds like a scary flying dinosaur - not what it really is: a cute pyramid pillow. We found these unique pillow forms from online resource, Downlite. Each pillow (we provide templates for a small 14" and a large 16") is made up of 16 triangles, and because we paid extra attention in Geometry class, we were able to come up with a layout that, when folded and stitched together into its final 3-D shape, has different patterns aligned at every seam. Like a little tetrahedron Rubik's Cube.

The Hyper House I have this giant chalkboard in my kitchen that has at times had anything from a dart board drawn on it to shopping lists and meal plans and even a cock fighting ring drawn on it. (Yes, that really happened) For summer I envisioned an actual theme to the board. I wanted a big banner with all my summer goals below it so I could try to do all the cool hipster things like picnics in the park, a drive-in movie, and music festivals.

No-Sew Summer Picnic Basket Tutorial *Tutorial by ChiWei @ One Dog Woof for her win of the Summer Bounty challenge for season 12* Like the Scrap Wood Lantern, the brainstorming process for this project took quite a circuitous route. I was originally thinking about some summer placemats, but after Drew gave me a big THUMBS DOWN, I asked him for ideas, if he was so clever indeed. Adventures in Sewing: Picnic Placemats Some time sewing recently produced this gem of a project. Picnic placemats with a cutlery and napkin-holding pouch. They are placemats that you can roll up and put in your picnic basket, sure to add a touch of awesome to your picnic. I know picnic season is winding down in most of the country, but here in the desert, it's about to start next month and last until next summer. I made this set for my daughter in Michigan, but I think I'm going to have to make another just for me.

Making a picnic dress Several people have asked me how to make my Picnic Dress. It’s a bit too complicated for the step by step instruction on how to draft a pattern I gave for the draped t-shirt, but I hope this will be enough detail for anyone who is familiar with how dresses are made. You will need 4 yards of 45″ fabric and an 18″ zipper. These are the pieces of the pattern. Mark out the measurements listed and the distances between them.
