My sis wanted new pants to train parkour in. She had some special wishes. Since she is tall she wanted long pants and they should be wide. Additionally she wanted deep pockets that wouldn’t stay open, so nothing could entangle while running and climbing. Also she needed the possibility to ruffle the leg-hems close to the legs. So this is what I came up with and she already wears it, so: Mission accomplished!
This is a really easy pant-pattern you could do with a un-elastic fabric too, since you have elastic waistbands. I am already very curious what ideas your coming up with! Read the rest of this entry
If your trying to see the good things more then bad things you have to start looking for it! So the first challenge is: Find something special, pretty outside just by keeping your eyes open.
The other day I was pretty fascinated Read the rest of this entry
next upcycled top… it turned out to look very romantic and girly, I like it even though thats not normally my style
So, today I was at the post office waiting in line and the man behind me, was grumbling and mumbling how impossible it is that he has to wait and they all should work faster. And I just thought, what a poor man, if he looks at all in his life this way, he probably suffers a lot. I wouldn’t want to live a life with that much of anger. I try to look a things relaxed and find something positive in anything as good as I can, but believe me, I have bad times, as everyone else. But I find if you try to look positive at life, it gets more easy with the exercise. Same as complimenting your friends and family and even strangers. I have the impression, people often only criticize and forget to compliment. But if you try to look at the people around you more positive and tell them, it can change the world, and look at it this way: wouldn’t you love to hear nice things from other people? and I can tell you complimenting others also makes you more happy somehow, so I say: Just try!
Your thoughts and experience are most welcome.
more of me going crazy with tops and long-sleeves oh I just love the outcome, wearing one already those are really easy to do too, and would be a good idea if one of your long-sleeves is broken somewhere maybe you can revive it by using this method to replace the broken parts. Let me know what you did or what great ideas you had on facebook, twitter, or youtube. Looking forward to it! Read the rest of this entry
So, I watched “The Losers” the other day and fell in love with the top that Zoë Saldana wears in one scene and thought I could do something like it myself. So I came back to modifactions or as I learned “upcycling”. I already work on other ideas, that is so much fun and so fast to do. So you can look forward to more crazy ideas I get from simple tops and long-sleeves. Sewing projects are also on the way, sorry lately I felt more like sewing than writing and cutting videos, but I will try my best to catch up with that. Read the rest of this entry
