“Iron and Candy”: Dress for a Christmas Party

For my collegue is the Christmas Party from our Company one of the important day of the year.
So everyone looks really forward to this day and they are really excited what the responsible people have prepared for.

So the slogan for the Party was “Iron and Candy”, It takes some time to decided what I should wear on this day. For me was clear I want to wear a silver top. Now I was searching for some “candy” accessories, after some days looking on google and Pinterest, I decided to sew my own “Candy” Clutch.

Here is my “Iron and Candy” outfit:

“Iron and Candy”: Dress for a Christmas Party

Upcycle Your Shirt – to make it longer and to give it color.

Hey Everbody! Have you ever had a shirt and you wanted to create something different with it? I love recycling old clothes and making something new with it. I was at the thrift store and found two of the same dresses with this amazing colorful pattern and an off white chiffon shirt. I kept one of the dresses in my size for myself and I used the fabric of the other dress to add to the shirt.

Here is what you need:

  • Scissor
  • Sewing Machine
  • Shirt
  • Colorful Fabric
  • Pins
  • Ruler

Have fun upcycling your shirts!

Hey Everybody! Most people that know me have already seen my collection of these drawstring backpacks from my school time. I also remember a while back having a drawstring backpack  with a Mickey Mouse print for my gym gear that I used as an inspiration.

I have recently discovered a drawstring backpack pattern and used different fabrics.  For me they are very convenient and the fabric gives them an interesting and unique look.

Stay tuned for a more detailed post on these drawstring backpacks, their  sewing pattern and unique fabrics.
