  1. I quite enjoyed browsing through this. I reckon it’s going to go really well with the handmade stuff I saw at I buy the majority of my headbands, necklaces, etc there.

  2. Dee Fick says:

    Great show, ideas are flowing! What pattern? was used for Alison’s jacket?

  3. Phyllis McCord says:

    I learned how to refashion tshirts with abandon
    from my teenage daughter. Cut, rip, add patches, add or take off sleeves – they have become an outlet for creativity.

  4. Kath says:

    Wow I just refashioned a fleece jacket that was way too big and I never wore it. It was destined to be ” camping clothes” the one’s I never will wear out in public again. After several adjustments, I will be seen in it around town.

  5. sewlindaann says:

    I love browsing through thrift shops just grabbing extra large for me clothing to play with. I love finding pieces for a dollar sometimes that are made of fabric I love. My fave things at the moment are bags, but I have accumulated a large plastic bin of clothing that I’m re-purposing for Spring skirts and tops.

  6. Georgia says:

    Love your magazine and am now enjoying your web site. I just printed your “sewing with kids” e-book. I’ll be with my grand daughter over spring break and we’ll be busy sewing; your e-book will be a wonderful inspiration for both of us.

  7. Annette Tennant says:

    Nothing is off limits! If it’s in a need for a facelift ~ it gets it!

  8. Leesa Hunter says:

    I love having the freedom to make whatever comes to mind at any time. Last week it was headbands from old tshirts, who knows what I’ll do today. To sew from scratch vests are my favorite.

  9. Sherrie Polatas says:

    I like to make little girls summer clothing out of colorful flowered or printed sheets.
    I’ve made short and top sets and sundresses. Many times they are cooler to wear than ready made.

  10. Linda N. says:

    I love to make christening gowns. The most involved makeover I had for one was a redo! We estimated what size a baby girl would need based upon her older brother’s birth weight a few years earlier, and wouldn’t you know she was two pounds heavier than her brother had been!

  11. Eugenia Horton says:

    I enjoy making a suit jacket and skirt. I especially love it when I don’t have enough fabric, then the creative juices start flowing.

  12. Ellen Lawrence says:

    As a high school Fashion Design teacher I have a closet full of donated prom and homecoming dresses that we use for one of my favorite student projects: Disaster to Master. The students work in teams and redesign and recycle an outdated dress using any supplies they can find in the supply closet. I love seeing thier creative ideals come to life!

  13. Carla G says:

    Shorts for my boys! They’re fairly easy to make and easy to customize. :)

  14. Amy Cramer says:

    When the kids were little I made them fantasy dresses and matching dresses.They grew and I made costumes for plays, Halloween and such. We moved and uniforms were needed, none made small enough for my girls, more sewing. Oldest off to college, I sewed a closet curtain with pockets, matching bedspread and curtains. Now I have time to make things for me and am wanting to try everything. The book would be truly loved and appreciated for the next stage of my life.

  15. Cheryl says:

    I love to make jackets, not your ordinary run of the mill jacket but spectacular jackets that would be one of a kind!

  16. Kathleen says:

    I love to sew for my grandkids, they love the things I make for them. I also love sewing for my daughters.

  17. kelli says:

    Skirts! There are so many options.

  18. Katy Kelley says:

    I like making quick lounge pants out of vintage pastel sheets or flannels.

  19. carla jo says:

    SKIRTS!! I love wearing solid-color tights with them! And cute shoes with little buckles! Plus with a skirt I can hook my insulin pump on the waistband– you cant do that with a dress!

  20. Patty says:

    I love to make skirts! There are simple to make, yet offer so many variations.

  21. Kelli says:

    I love to make & make over skirts – so many options.

  22. Ginger says:

    Skirts are my favorite to make.
