So, here it is. The bag I received from Katherine as part of the recent bag swap. Isn’t it lovely?

And Katherine even generously included a sewing pattern! It’s Amy Butler’s Field Bag & Tote. I had been eyeing this pattern for quite some time and am really looking forward to making one of those bags!

Bag Swap – It has arrived!

BAGAHOLIC

I recently took part in a bag swap, organised by Petchy over at Made by Petchy.

While I can’t yet show you the bag I made for the occasion (I’ll have to wait until my swap partner receives it) I can tell you: I received my bag!

It is from the lovely Katherine over at Classic Campbell.

Men’s Shirt Refashion

Hi again. =)

I’ve been quite busy recently, with uni starting again for the winter semester and my master thesis taking shape. So, long time no see…

One of the crafty things I finished recently was a men’s shirt refashion. I took a XL sized shirt from the thrift store (half price sale) and remodeled it to a nice blouse for myself.

As this was my first time sewing some clothes for myself (even if I was only refashioning something) I was quite apprehensive. But I think it worked out quite well.

I used one of my favourite blouses as a model and used it as the basic shape. I also made a belt from the shirt’s sleeves.

What do you think?

I already bought a few more shirts to play around with… 😉
