July is Refashion Month at House Of Estrela

Hello to all the lovely crafters who make my world go round (that'd be you guys)

I am so excited about the month of July! Any guesses why?

Canada Day?


Independence Day?


Okay, I'll give you a hint...

The lovely and very talented Magda of House of Estrela (whose blog you will LOVE) is hosting a refashion event featuring a ton of absolutely incredible ladies.

Max California - Alida Makes - Feather's Flights - Nelesc Designs - Threading my Way - Serger Pepper - Mammy Made - Do Guincho - Sewing Mamma RaeAnna - Made with Love by Hulibug - Winter Wonderings Wanderings & Whatnot - Theresa's To do's - Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!  - Mikelina Makes - Charity Shop Chic - Sew Chibi - Wunderbar Life - MellySews - Carissa Knits - Refashionista

I'm still getting over the shock of being in such company. I couldn't be more excited to participate or more flattered. Each and everyone one of these women is amazing. If you see any names you're not familiar with I suggest you fix that with a hop over to one of their blogs!

You won't want to miss a single day! My post will be up July 24th. And I already know exactly what I'm posting.

May the craftiness be with you!

Me Made May #3 Repurposing

Dress: Joe
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Nine West
Glasses: "Love" Crystal Shadow
Okay, if you just read that ^ you may have noticed I'm kinda cheating.
Just give me a chance to explain!
The dress is actually an XS night shirt by Joe.
I made it into a dress by putting it on a not XS person (me) and belting it with this amazing belt.
See what I did there?
I think it counts.

Me Made May #1 - The Sonic Dress

Me Made May # 1
Just a quick post today fine refashioners. This dress was refashioned from a children's bedsheet I thrifted. I love the overall effect, and I'm generally terrified of fabric with no stretch so go me! Facing my non-stretch fears!
My posts will be short over the next week or so. I have some health issues (depending on how long you've been around you may know that) and I'm more or less house bound (see: indoor shot), trying to rest up and get back on my feet. I need to get out there and enjoy this beautiful, unexpected Vancouver sunshine!
See you tomorrow!

Baby ootd!

Had to share Wildeman's outfit today!
Hat and Jacket: The Children's Place
Onesie: Carters
Pants and Botties: Handmade
