DECMEBER.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! Let’s pause a moment *pause* I GOT SOME GREY UGGS! I’m so excited, but getting back on topic, I’m super sorry I posted this so late, but I had a lot of tests and places to go to. But I thought it would be fun to do a planning blogpost of what I’m going to be doing for my favorite (and busiest) moth of the year. There are a lot of things I have planned for the Holidays, some gifts, and maybe food! Most of these will have corresponding DIY posts in the future when I make them, sooooo look out for those!

My sister posing, as well as she can while not liking pictures

Hello Everyone! Yes anohther sweater. If you saw my Black Friday Post, then you now know what the surprise is. This DIY is really fun and different and easy. You can choose to add the pom pom to a sweater you already own, but I made mine from scratch. I already made a post on how to make a warm sweater, CLICK HERE. The size of the pom poms can vary, I used mini-rainbow ones, but that’s because my sister liked them better.

And the best part about them is that they were free. The patterns range from Vogue patterns to Project Runway, But here are some of my favorites.

How to Make a Cozy Sweater

IMG_8320-2.jpg

 

Hello everyone! I MADE A SWEATER! *yay* I love making sweaters. This is a very easy DIY and it requires little sewing. I used a knit/fleece fabric and it took me less than one day to make. I bought 1 1/2 yards of fabric, but it depends on the size of the sweater. The fabric I’m using is so stretchy and warm. And I wanted the length to be longer but not to long so I made it where my wrists were on my hips. And my signature sleeves, extra extra long. It’s also perfect for the winter! And I had some extra fabric so I made matching shorts!

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited. I love cacti. (but I never forget my grammar, #grammar queen) And I needed a smaller pin cushion that I could move around with me in my sewing room. It’s super easy and quick! Although, since it’s smaller, I hand sewed everything, except the eyes.

Hello Everyone! In this picture, the crotch wasn’t sitting correctly. This is something I’ve been planning for a while! It’s fairly easy and requires very little sewing. And you all know I love upcycling projects! Especially ones that you can wear in ANY weather! I apoligize for not putting in many pictures, but CLICK HERE  if you would like to see a more detailed DIY for regular pants. I was in the sewing zone, and I forgot to take pictures of the simpler steps.

SEWING.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m going to be honest, I make a lot of mistakes. Not the usual amount, but a lot more. If I’m not in the right head set or if I’m too tired. And it’s really easy to make mistakes especially when sewing. Usually, I make the most mistakes when cutting fabric. No matter how many times I measure and measure, there is always a chance for a mistake.

HERE ARE SOME MISTAKES I’VE MADE AND HOW I’VE LEARNED FROM THEM!

How to Make an 1/4 zipper Pullover

n.jpg

Hello Everyone! First of all, I am amazed of how well this turned out! This was my first 1/4 zipper pullover. And it’s getting cold out, but not cold enough to pull out one of those heavy duty jackets. Shopping for one of these, I found a lot of overpriced ones. Soooo, I thought it would be better to make one. This is a pretty quick project. And I didn’t use a pattern. I made one from my mother’s jacket and then downsized the pattern to fit my measurements. I used, 1 1/2 yards of a fleece like fabric and a 7 inch zipper.

How to Make a Pattern out of your own clothes!

BE73EDD5-868E-4AA7-9BE4-A028A3CEBC1A

Hello Everyone! I use this hack a lot. I like duplicating my clothes but changing them a bit. And I don’t like spending money on sewing patterns. So, this comes in handy.
CONSIDER, this as part one of a big project I’m doing. This will show how I got the pattern for it. I recommend using parchment paper or newspaper because they are both really sturdy and durable, in case you want to reuse this pattern.

I’m using my mother’s jacket to trace it and then I will downsize it. It is the same type of jacket I want, just bigger. This is mostly just step 1, 2,3, Repeat.

DIY Furry Blanket with Trimming Pt 1

Hello Everyone! Recently I made a simple fuzzy blanket for my sister. Now I know it’s summer and it’s really hot but we all have that one family member who blasts the AC a little too much. And if not, a furry blanket is always nice to have. I love the fabric and it was pretty cheap, only $2.00 per yard at Costco. Even thought it seems like a simple craft, it was actually pretty time-consuming, because of the size and fabrics used. But, if you have the time and are patient, it should be easy.
