Reuse, Remake, Restyle


 

This came in an email today and I thought it was worth talking about…
I’ll be posting some fun things in September that I’ll create by reusing, remaking, and restyling.  does anyone else want to join me?
 
2009 – Reuse, Remake, Restyle

  The new mantra for 2009 aims to encourage sewers to innovateNat'l Sewing Month while they recreate. Sewers are challenged to Reuse, Remake, Restyle their favorite fads into timeless garments, home decor items or even a trendy new bag. Antique linens are becoming children’s dresses and unadorned jean jackets are becoming wearable works of art with the addition of ribbons, feathers, trims and free-motion embroidery.

 
Sewing is not only fun, it’s a great way to save money. Hemming skirts, appliqueing over stains, replacing buttons and repairing tears are much easier on the budget than buying something new. And the feeling of creating – or recreating – is addictive and the results can often be dramatic with just a few hours spent with needle and thread.
 
September is a time to celebrate our passion, but we know the creative, therapeutic and calming effects of sewing are joys that we can celebrate throughout the entire year.
 
Happy Sewing!

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    I’m so going to do this. I’ve already purchased an old wedding dress from the thrift store that I’m hoping to make the most enchanting fairy costume from. Hope it works. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
