  3. awww…. the little girl looks so pretty…. Love what you are doing with all this cloths am guessing I don’t have to throw or give out my unuse clothe anymore, rather i’ll just try this technique out and see if I don’t mess them up, thanks for posting

  4. Oh, drat! I meant to send in my shorts-to-beach-bag. You can see it here:

    Plus, it was before the contest…but, I still like it!

    These refashions are amazing and so inspiring. I just started making over a denim dress very similar to Sandpaper Kisses original garment (nudged by this week’s challenge, might I add). Now I have a different direction to think about! Thanks to all the sewalong gals for their great ideas.

  6. I’m so glad you’re doing the sew-a-long Beth! It’s so fun to see all of these creative ladies’ refashions! Great job everyone! 😉

  7. My fave is the little girl’s dress. Here’s an idea for a refashion–how about a shower curtain to clothing challenge? Some shower curtains are soft enough for clothing plus they offer a large sheet of material. A waterproof shower curtain would make a great raincoat or windbreaker. What do you think?

    These are all really cool.

    I really like Nout’s dress. What a transformation – from a frumpy “mom” dress to a stylish dress with sexy lines. It really shows off her hourglass figure. It’s a totally sexy vibe – totally. I bookmarked a link to her site so I can try the same thing at home.

    Sarah’s shirt is really clever as well, and it looks very well made.
