This looks great!  How big is it?

Thanks! It's about 15" wide 10" tall.  I'll probably make it a little deeper next time though ^_^

Drafted my very first bag pattern and tested it out.  Made a few mistakes on the way which I noted on my blog post.  I also put up a tutorial on how to install an inner zipper pocket.

You can find the post here: http://merrymeddlings.blogspot.com/2014/05/inner-zipper-pocket-tutorial.html

Here's another project I was able to finish in less than an hour for our upcoming trip.  Super super easy kaftan blouse.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Infinity Dress With Handkerchief Hem on: May 02, 2014 03:06:08 PM

Hey guys!  A few weeks ago, it finally hit me that I had nothing to wear for this heatwave that's been going through southern california.  And since I'll be going out of town for a week to Hawaii this month, I figured I needed something that would last more than one wearing.  Here's a picture of the dress I made a few weeks ago.  It's an infinity dress with a handkerchief hem, so I could wear it several different ways, in case I didn't get to any of my other projects before our trip ^_^

Thanks for looking Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Modified Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt on: September 22, 2012 06:56:35 PM

I found this little treasure in the little boy's section of my local thrift shop.  It fit pretty snugly, but I felt like I was choking from the tiny neck opening so I chopped it off so it hangs off the shoulders.  There's two rows of topstitching just around the neckline, a detachable bow brooch which I crafted out of some leftover fabric I had used for my pillowcases here and padded it with the fabric from the hoodie I chopped off.  I also added a few studs to the bottom right along the seam, just because I felt like it.

This was a really quick and easy project, and what's great is that the fabric doesn't fray so it can be left unfinished/raw.

What a beautiful dress! It's very whimsical and fairy-like Smiley

Thanks Smiley I just cut a straight line across the leg for the shorts, then cut off the seams and cuff from the legs. This left me with 2 rectangles which fit perfectly around my belly, and the other 2 pieces I shaped into 2 long trapezoid-like shapes for the bust. I made a quick sketch of what I did.. hope that helps!

Hi everyone! I've got another refashion up for you! This used to be a pair of capri pants that I found. But lately it has been way too hot for this kind of clothing, so I decided to cut them into shorts, and I turned the leftover fabric into a halter top. Now I can stay a little cooler while lounging around the house Smiley

Before picture and other refashions can be found on my blog!
