A Simple Lampshade Got This New Look by Poking Pins

THINK OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES

YOU COULD USE PUMPKIN CARVING PATTERNS ON LAMP SHADES

It’s a forever lite brite.

OOOH I’m gonna try this .. with … something. Probably not a skyline and not pumpkin carving patterns, but I’ll certainly think of something awesome.

Ice Cream Cone Elbow Patches | Studio DIY
The one piece of clothing that I get the most comments on is my cardigan with heart patches. For some reason those patches are adored by all and sundry! I have to admit, I love them too - they add a bit of fun to an otherwise plain grey cardigan. So now I’ve got the patch fever, I have been thinking about what other designs I could do when i came across this DIY - I honestly wouldn’t have thought of ice creams! These patches are made with a Cricut machine and special iron on fabric, but you can get the same effect with applique. So cute and sure to get you compliments!

Lightweight Bathrobe | Lana Red
There’s nothing like a really nice bathrobe to feel a bit spoilt after a relaxing bath or shower! But it can be hard finding one that suits you. Some are a little too short, some are in a dodgy fabric, some are just too thick and heavy for Summer use. Making your own means you can choose your style and fabric. Lana has made hers in a lightweight jersey which is perfect for Summer and nice and stretchy (which equals comfy!)

How to build sewing skills if you’re an absolute beginner - Colette Patterns

sugarbooty:

This is a nice little blog post for beginner seamstresses looking to find the motivation to get started in the sewing world. Colette suggests her own patterns to build up skill levels, and while I love that idea, I have said on here a bunch of times (and have had it co-signed by a lot of followers) that her patterns are built for a very specific body type that I dare say not a lot of us have (full in the bust, boxy from waist to hip). You will have to test her patterns out yourself to see if they work for you, and I would say that simple tops are more likely to fit various body types than other garments because of minimal shaping. But give them a try, and if you don’t think they will work for you, you can easily find patterns by other designers that incorporate the skills she is highlighting in this post (projects with pockets/zippers/shirring, etc).

Happy sewing!

Reblogging for friends who want to learn to sew. I’ve never used a Colette pattern because I’m too fat, so yeh it’s a bit harder trying to find or even adapt clothing patterns to fit if you’re larger than most pattern companies offer. Pattern grading: yet another advanced skill a fatty has to learn if they want to clothe themselves.
