Refashioners 2013: Guess what I made?

Refashioners sneak peekThe gorgeous Portia of the fabulous refashioning blog Miss P asked me to take part in this year’s Refashioners event. Joining the lineup of super stitchers (just check them out here) was like being asked to join an all-out awesome rock supergroup to simply tinkle my triangle in the background. But tinkle away I did, and I’m delighted to say I got a wearable result which I’m actually pretty pleased with. But what did she send me and what did I refashion it into?

Well you’ll just have to mosey on over to Miss P to find out. And while you’re there check out what those other amazing ladies have been up to. You’ll be amazed at the ingenuity, and if it doesn’t make you get down your local charity shop to unearth a gem then you are a FOOL! A FOOL I say!


Why yes Miss P – I’m in

Christ on an Easter bike – how did I get to join this illustrious lot? Especially since the closest I’ve got to my sewing machine this year is a couple of longing looks. But this is the perfect project to stretch those old sewing muscles non?
Last year Portia rounded up a bunch of stitching geniuseseseses and cajoled them into creating astonishingly gorgeous garments from, let’s face it, some questionable items. Check them out here.
In the meantime I’ll be watching my doormat nervously for her mystery item…
Newsflash – this week I have the most amazing Handmade Style participant. You will not be disappointed. I repeat: YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Watch this space.
P.S. Congratulations to Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons who will be appearing in the sewing spectacular that is The Great British Sewing Bee. Every time I think of it I squeal with excitement. Have you ever seen someone you know on TV and gone all squeaky with delight? That’ll be me come April 2nd at 8pm. I believe the hash tag on Twitter is #GBSB. If I can unglue my eyes from the telly I’ll be checking out all those tweets too.
