I've been working on this charity project since December now! Time has been slipping away from me, and I want to sew as much as I can. Here's the new things I've made. Click the link down below for the full story!
I'm starting off with a colourful rainbow shirt. I love rainbows so much, however this shirt's colours are wrong. I used fabric paint and popsicle sticks to go over the entire design, which you can see in the top-right photo. I didn't include blue in the rainbow, since there were only five stripes and the background was blue. I figured there was enough colours in the design to work! I also altered the bottom, cutting off and redoing the uneven hem.
You've seen these bracelets before, but I have a ton that I've put aside to sell. I think the somewhat-messy look looks pretty cool, with the strips of fabric wrapped around the bangle. I bought the bangle bracelets from the dollar store, and hot-glued the fabric onto them. I chose out a variety of different fabrics: florals, kawaii hearts, stripes, circles.
This is probably my favourite piece I've made in a while. A few years ago, I had a denim jacket with a collar and pockets I covered in fabric, and buttons I painted. I love that design I came up with, so I made another one for my charity project! I painted the buttons white and chose a pastel fabric to sew along the collar and to line the pockets.
This was a lot more of an altering project, but I think this layered tank is cool enough that it doesn't need anything extra. It was originally adult size, so I hemmed the bottom of both layers to make it shorter. I left a few inches of the stripes peeking out underneath. In the back, there was a gap to show the different layers but I reshaped that as well.
Finally, I wanted to include some half-way done projects to show you a bit of my process. I'm going to turn this jacket into the same style from before, but I've only painted the buttons so far. As for the sweater, I thrifted it and want to turn it into a poncho style.
Thanks for reading!
