DIY Sweater Pumpkins, a Book Winner and Another Giveaway


There’s a nip in the air. It’s time to get your sweaters out. Fall is coming! But if you happen to find a moth hole in one or more, don’t throw them out, instead, make some easy sweater pumpkins for autumn decorating.

I’m practically giddy with excitement about tonight’s Book Launch Party!  I can’t wait to celebrate The Refashion Handbook with you all. The food is ready, the wine is chilling, the studio is decorated, and all we need now is YOU!


It’s going to be a fun night! The champagne will be flowing as well as hors d’oeuvres, sewing themed cocktails and mocktails.  Rick and Evie Mugrage will be there to delight us with their beautiful music. (We enjoyed their beautiful music at Katie and Adam’s wedding.) We’ll be giving away door prizes throughout the night, including a few books. And of course, The Refashion Handbook will be available for that early Christmas shopping (just sayin’) 🙂

For those of you who live too far away to come, we’ll be posting pictures on Instagram throughout the evening so you can be a part of the big night. 🙂 Join us at   the_renegade_seamstress. We’ll be using #therefashionhandbook     and  #therenegadeseamstress

    Beautiful ideas for refashioning!

  8. I love the pumpkins, and it would be fun looking for and picking out the sweaters at the thrift store.
    A big one could be made from the body of the sweater too.

  9. Love these! So perfect for this time of year… Now to find an orange sweater!
