Hand Me Down Horror Refashions - Don't call it a Comeback

Ok totally singing LL Cool J's 'Mama Said Knock You Out' after that title, butttt erm moving swiftly on.

I started this blog to give me a kick up the butt to get back to sewing and more importantly to refashioning clothing. It worked, I refashioned janky article after janky article, every day for the longest time I posted newly made over loveliness, but then a new house and baby number 2 came and before long refashioning too was on the back burner and my pile of clothing to refashion just got bigger.

Well not anymore, I've been threatening to resurrect HMDH for erm most of this year, so without further excuse making ;) here we go.

Thought I'd ease myself in gently to refashioning clothing again, I love love loved this sweater in the thrift store but it was kinda fuzzy and the shape was really not doing anything for me either. So I got to chopping and made myself this cute little clutch with some Denim scraps and trims I had in the Monster stash.

Kinda Aboriginal, kinda sorta Midwest, a lotta Geometric design and you know I love me some Red, White and Blue. Pom Pom trim? Rick Rack? Denim? bring it on, less is NOT more don't kid yourself ladies.

So whatd'ya think? (looks down at feet and shuffles a bit) have I still got it?

I started singing LL cool J as soon as I saw your blog title too!! Actually quite like the jumper before, but the purse is very cool indeed, thanks for sharing on RFF!

Ha ha twins! Thanks Erica, yeah I loved the jumper too, so Scandinavian with the yoke detail. Sadly it was all stretched out boooooo :-(

Great refashion Ruby! - love your new clutch!!
Hey and just wanted to let you know I can't reply to your comments on my blog. Do you know you're a no-reply comment blogger? I just found out recently that my blog settings had changed without my knowing to this - I was so grateful that a friend pointed it out, so I'm trying to let others know in case the same has happened to them!

Please don't stop! One of the reasons why I bookmarked you to begin with :).
Love the clutch, I never would have thought of that.

Ruby Murray said...

Thanks for giving me the tip off Jill, that sucks, what sucks even more is that I CANNOT for the life of me work out what changed and where I can change it back grrrrrrr.
Glad you like the refashion, and thanks again for letting me know.
