I have finally fired up the sewing machine...well, overlocker to be precise but same thing.
I decided to face my fear of making clothes for my son and, having thrown all cutesy girl fabric to one side, realised I have very few fabrics for boys that weren't boring and plain. All of the funky fabrics online that I ADORE - mushrooms, campervans and the like - are far outwith my current budget so drastic action was required. Hardcore recycling!
First up - one of my favourite old tops that I wanted to try and make into a pair of trousers.
This is how it went:
Here is the original top before chop-chopping began.
Going to try making dungarees out of some old jeans now...need to work out how to cut them to keep the snazzy pockets...oooh, in fact, I'll cut one of the big pockets to sew onto the front...may even do a bit of applique...fancy!
Right, feeling rather sickly now as baby needs calories....naughty me should know better than not eat for 10 mins!!
