DIY Days

So this week and last week I've been working on some more sewing projects. At first I wanted to make things to sell but it's just so hard to give it away because I want it for myself! I feel the same way about my art, I could never sell my paintings because there's always an emotional attachment. Sigh. I think I will end up a starving artist/designer for sure now.


Pandas!!!! i love pandas.
First project: RECONSTRUCT PANDA TEE
It was big and baggy, not its a nice long tshirt. It could even possibly be a short dress for those who dare bare their legs. This one I think I can let go. But then those stupid pandas are pleading me with their big cartoon eyes to keep them. Darn you cute pandas. Darn you.


Koalas!!!
Second Project: REVAMP CHEESY SWEATER
This used to be a big sweater of my mom's. I loved the cute koalas but not the ugly shape. What to do? Chop chop chop! Now it's a jumper type of thing. I can't let this go either.



Dress!!!

Third Project: MAKE USE OF BORING CASHMERE SWEATER

I bought this short sleeved cashmere sweater from the thrift store in one of the bag sales. It was one of those 90's style sweathers where it was cropped. I decided to make a dress with some blue jersey fabric I had. I love it!! I want to wear it in the fall with tights and boots and hats!!! Yes HATS!! Can't wait.

Maybe you should use images of animals that you don't find cute for clothes you want to make for sale. xD
