Turning Prefolds Into Fitteds

Today we’ll explore turning prefolds into one-size fitteds! This is especially useful if you (like me!) have about a thousand useless Gerber prefolds, and even more useless flannel receiving blankets. It’s a great way to use these otherwise pointless items. I mean, yeah, you can use the Gerber prefolds as prefolds, but you’ll be changing diapers constantly because they just aren’t thick enough. And those receiving blankets can be used as flats, but why not make them easier to use?

As with all of my tutorials, this is huge, so it’s under the read more.

❤❤❤❤❤ My go to look for summer

Finally doneeee *o*

I didn’t want to go to sleep until I finished it (it’s currently about 3 am here). Started working on it about 6 hours ago.. I don’t quite remember why I thought hand-embroidering the veins was a good idea..

More info tomorrow, for now I should probably get to sleep soon, haha..

edit: I’ve uploaded a tutorial for this shirt here :]]

Unicorn Bloomers

A week or so ago I decided that I should become a full-time fairy, since it feels so natural and makes me happy. That meant that I needed more fairy-esque items in my wardrobe, so I spent an evening making these bloomers. :]

When I was trying to describe this iridescent fabric to my friend Vanessa, she said she called it “unicorn fabric.” It a very fitting name that I’m going to use from now on too. ;p I knew it’d end up being a little itchy since it’s so tight to the skin, but I still think it was definitely worth it!

The pattern I used is a free download made by Colette Patterns, and can be found here. I altered it slightly to make the waist a little higher, though I wish I’d made it even more so.

I love this pattern a ton (I’ve used it once before). It’s simple in that it only has two pieces, though the elastic might be a tiny bit tricky if you haven’t worked with it before. But overall it’s a great beginner pattern that gives you really lovely results. :]

Indie Sewing Pattern Master List

I’ll update this list as I find new indie pattern makers! Feel free to suggest any additions! 

Here’s a bit of an explanation of the terms I used in this Master Post list:

  • Sewing Patterns = Women’s sewing patterns
  • Sew-Alongs = Blog or Video tutorials that guide you through every step of creating an item from a pattern
  • Tutorials = Short tips and tricks about sewing in general
  • Pattern Add-ons = Instructions on simple modifications or additional detail pattern to a full pattern (Example: Pocket add-on pattern for a blouse or how to modify a wide-leg pattern to skinny leg pattern)
  • Dolls = Human-shaped stuffed toys
  • Stuffed Animals = Animal-shaped stuffed toys
  • Plushie = Video game or Anime inspired stuffed toys

Tutorial: No-Sew Tank with Yummy You!

Here’s the second of two DIYs I did with Yummy You’s super comfy Ice Cream and Sunnies Tee! A really simple, nifty trick if you want to make a more form-fitted shirt without having to sew anything. :]
