Making Your Own Pattern: a tutorial Patterns aren't cheap. Seriously, I was browsing through through the look books at Hobby Lobby the other day and some of them were as much as $20. Tack that on to the price of fabric and other supplies and suddenly sewing your own clothing becomes very expensive. Thankfully, you can make your own patterns using your own clothing that you know to fit well. I'll show you how to make a simple blouse pattern using a top of my own. I used Scotch Postal Wrapping Paper as my pattern paper. I used paper because I like to lay my pattern piece down and trace the shape directly onto my fabric. Muslin fabric is another great material that would allow you to pin the pattern piece to your fabric. Lay your garment down on the paper and determine the middle of the top. Mark right above the collar and right below the hem. Draw a rough outline of one half of the top. When you get to the sleeve, do your best to fold it back so that you just see the armhole. Now for the sleeves. *Update*
Nested Fabric Buckets Tutorial | Whipstitch I didn’t invent the idea of the fabric basket/bucket–nothing like–but I am certainly more than happy to walk you through how I made the ones I’m using in my studio. After discovering–purely by accident–that a smaller (prototype) bucket fit neatly inside the larger size I settled on, it occurred to me as I prepared to put together a tutorial that a set of nested buckets would be pretty cool. So, here they are: a set of three nested fabric buckets to mix-and-match at will. I’m even thinking the littlest size would make a sweet handbag for the spring, don’t you? I’m really digging on the graduated sizes, and still completely in love with the idea that these can be used as dividers, so that the biggest basket isn’t so super huge that there’s a ton of wasted space. These are all batted with a fusible fleece that I had on hand (supplemented when I ran low with some off the bolt at the shop), so they’re fairly soft-sided.

Recycle Reuse & Repurpose – Glass Jar Photo Frames In South Africa, recycling is way of life that not very many people incorporate into their daily routine. Partly because we do not have the facilities or many places that offer this service, but mainly because most people are too lazy to think about what happens to their rubbish once they toss it in the bin. So instead of carelessly dumping your trash, one of the ways you can help give used things a second life, is to reuse your glass jars, and use them as novelty photo frames. You will need A selection of different shaped glass jars A bunch of your favorite photos Doom Paper Towels Scissors / cutting knife Ruler Pencil Step 1: Remove the label After speaking to several people in search for the best method to remove the gluey sticky mess left behind when attempting to soak off labels on glass jars, I have discovered the secret is… Doom. Step 2: Measure the Jar Step 4: Place photo into the jar Slightly roll the photo, with the image facing outwards, and insert it into the jar upside down.
